A Portland homebuyer found a unique way to get her offer for her dream home accepted: Promising pizza for life.

Portland’s real estate market has been booming in recent years, with dozens of offers on a home and bidding wars becoming a commonplace. But Donna DiNicola, owner of DiNicola’s Italian Restaurant in southeast Portland, made her offer on a 900-square-foot house stand out by promising $275,000, two months free rent and free pizza every month for life to the sellers, according to the New York Post.

“It was really a joke,” DiNicola said. “I swear to you I did not know that made it into the paperwork.”

“Donna’s offer was just so compelling and the fact that she offered 60 days of rent back for free, which is practically unheard of,” said Holly Marsh, the home seller. “And then the pizza part was just hilarious. It just goes to show they really did something to stand out among the offers.” [NYP]Christopher Cameron
