“The contest is a fun way to bring the community together to celebrate ugly houses and their potential to be transformed,” said David Hicks, co-president of HomeVestors of America, Inc. “We all win when ugly houses are improved to become lovely homes. The sellers win, the buyers or tenants win, the neighborhood and community wins.”
Voters can cast their ballots after viewing photos and property descriptions. Nominees for the 2011 “Ugliest House” contest were selected from a call-for-entries inviting all real estate investors in contest markets to submit the ugliest houses they had bought at any time between March 1, 2010 and May 15, 2011. Most of the houses nominated have since been rehabbed and transformed into lovely homes, with some sold on the retail market and others maintained as rental properties.
