It’s quite an incentive.
The real estate agent who finds a buyer for the Chicago suburbs' most expensive mansion will take home a $250,000 bonus, according to an article in Crain’s Chicago Business.
Winnetka’s 27,000-square-foot Le Grand Reve mansion has been on the market for five years. A significant price reduction — from $32 million when it was first listed to the current $18.75 million — hasn’t yielded a buyer.
So the sellers are getting creative. Crain’s reports that the $250,000 bonus will be in addition to the standard 2 percent commission. Meaning the lucky agent will take home a total of $375,000.
If the home sells for the asking price, it would be the most expensive home sale on record in the Chicago area.
And Curbed Chicago has lots of photos, which you can see here.
