Divorce is rarely a happy occasion, but David Kaufer and his wife, Renee (pictured left) -- who are happily married -- have had more than one occasion to celebrate another couple's split. They are owners of a "divorce" home.

Indeed, the Kaufers purchased their last three homes from divorcing couples.

"We have not actively sought out homes that were for sale by couples who were divorcing, but it's worked out that way," says David Kaufer, a 45-year-old Zenwerks marketing executive who moved to Edmonds, Wash., in suburban Seattle from the Bay Area in 2005.
