HomeVestors is launching an "Ugliest House" promotion. The Dallas based realty firm, whose theme line is "We Buy Ugly Houses," has a "2011 Ugliest House of the Year" contest in six regional markets
across the USA. The effort, through July 22, is at www.TheUgliestHouse.com, where consumers can vote. No sign-up or registration required, and results will be posted on the website the week of
July 25, according to the company.
Only problem, the house has to be in: Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver,Newark, N.J., or Richmond, Va.
Voters can cast their ballots after
viewing photos and property descriptions. Nominees come from a call-for-entries to real estate investors in contest markets to submit the ugliest houses they had bought since March last year.
