Contest Time! Open Call for First-Time Buyer Horror Stories

New, 1 comment

Did your auction purchase turn into a money pit? Did you spend months negotiating back taxes with crazy slum lords? Did drug dealing squatters move in next to your dream home? If you're trembling as you read this or you have other disasters to report, Curbed wants to know. We need first-time buyer stories... gone bad! What could be more cathartic than cashing in on your distinct misery? Send Curbed your First-Time Buyer Horror Story and you could be in the running to win $2,500 toward your choice of home store. The rules are simple: we'll collect 'em all, feature some, and put the best up to a vote later this month during Rookie Roosts Week. Curbed Detroit's winner will then face off against representatives from the other Curbed city sites (Don't let those Yankees win!) in a massive poll hosted by Curbed National. The national winner takes all. Our tipline's officially open, so unleash the horror! (Standard contest rules apply)
