Here’s one surefire way to throw the value of your home into question: shoot a porno at home.

Buying a former film set sounded glam, until buyer Linda Fein sleuthed out the goods and realized the home she’d just put a $1.8 million offer down on had been the backdrop of a series of pornos, according to the New York Post.

“I just can’t make Thanksgiving dinner on counters where a porn star has been lounging around,” said Fein to the Arizona Republic.

The four-bedroom home in Paradise Valley is owned by Kevin and Sandra Otterson, a couple who operates a porn website called Wifey’s World for which the 1.3-acre lot is a backdrop. The couple have run the site since 1998 and are known to some 360,000 Twitter followers as “Hubby” and “Wifey” with their home clearly displayed in their videos.

What shocked Fein was that no one would have told her if she hadn’t figured it out herself: “At that price point, I figured there might be some courtesy to the buyer,” but Arizona has no disclosure laws surrounding home-made porn — though the Redfin listing agent was the one who dropped Fein a hint that led to the truth by saying the home had been used by the “entertainment industry.”

The home is listed for $2.2 million. [NYP]Erin Hudson
