No, it isn't a typographical error nor a mispelled word. The house for sale comes with a free wife, not wifi.

According to a report published on Rappler.com, a realtor named Dian thought of the bright idea to offer the single storey house located in Yogyakarta for IDR999 million (P3,350,894) after the owner, Wina Lia, a 40-year-old widow, said she wants to marry again.

Dian reportedly suggested that the tagline for the advertising banner would be "Buy the house and marry the owner at the same time!," which Wina agreed on. The ad quickly went viral after the realtor posted it on property website Rumahdijual.com.


The house for sale is situated in a 523-square-meter lot. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, granite flooring, a fish pond, and a spacious backyard, the Rappler report stated. The best deal is, as the ad tells prospective buyers, "you can take the owner as your wife (terms and conditions apply)."

Wina, who got married twice, reportedly said she doesn't have any particular criteria for a husband, but she wants him to be single (never been married or a widower), mature and responsible, as well as religious and be a good father to her children.

"He has to be a good Muslim and family leader. I also hope my husband will support my wearing a hijab (headscarf)," she told Indoberita.com.

There's no update yet if someone already took the offer, which puts both the buyer and the seller in a win-win situation. Once they get married, the house and the money paid to buy it (not to mention the car in the garage) become conjugal properties.

Good deal, isn't it?
