The house has been on the market for eight months
A businessman who is offering advice on selling homes in the recession has offered £100,000 to anyone who can find a purchaser for his £2m home.
Jonathan Blain put his riverside home in Devon on the market in October last year because of a reduction in income from his business interests.
Without any buyers, he made the plea via his website extremehouseselling in May, but there have been no takers yet.
It is the latest example of unorthodox home selling tactics in the recession.
Mr Blain said the offer was available to anyone who introduced a buyer for his six-bedroom house in Tuckenhay.
The website says: "Introduce someone you know who buys this stunning home and you could earn a reward of £100,000."
He said: "There's only so much I or my agent can do, so effectively I'm opening up the opportunity for anyone in the world to earn £100,000.
The£2m house, which sits on the edge of Bow Creek, has six bedrooms
"It's a pretty attractive deal."
He added: "With a house as beautiful and spectacular as mine, people get interested when they look at it.
"But no-one has said: 'There's a cheque let's do a deal'."
In other unusual selling methods, a £1m Devon house was raffled in May.
Other sellers have thrown in free gifts such as a car while others have tried swapping or try before you buy.
