Are you looking to buy a family home in La Habra? If so, you might be interested in one with an infamous departing tenant: "Octomom" Nadya Suleman has put her home on the market, and she's hoping her fame will bring her a buyer.

Suleman, a single mother of 14, has previously used her status as a headline-making persona to help her make ends meet. Though she initially shied from the press and complained about their intrusion in her life, she soon came to rely on publicity to draw the public to her very own front lawn, where she has not only held a garage sale of personal items (nursing bra, anyone?) and hosted a PETA advocacy sign, all to make some bucks to feed her large family. She's also had her mortgage paid previously by local porn company Vivid.

Here's the listing on

The home on Madonna Lane is listed for $525,000, which is over $36,000 more than its estimated value. Prospective buyers, you may want to see if your new neighbors would be willing to pitch in some of the down payment in order to speed the process; they've never been particularly happy to have Ms. Suleman on their otherwise quiet cul-de-sac.
