WEXFORD, Pa. (AP) – It’s the deal of a lifetime.

Bob and Ricki Husick of Pittsburgh are offering anyone who buys their home a full refund when they die.

The Husicks have been trying to sell their suburban home for almost a year, but have failed to do so in the current shaky market.

Some area homeowners have lowered prices, offered free trips and tried a variety of other gimmicks, but the Husicks came up with their own unique incentive.

The couple have no heirs and built the house in 1993. They want $399,900 for the four-bedroom, 3½-bath home, which is located about 20 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Under the Husicks’ offer, the buyer would get the sale price back when they die.

Wait, there’s more: If the buyer agrees to care for the couple in old age, he could also inherit their retirement home in Arizona.

“Why not go for the works? So if we’re worth $2.5 million, you get it all,” said Husick, 55.
