Fab Freebie: Homes On Homepage

*** This giveaway is now closed. See who won below! ***

An early Christmas present (in the form of this $500 Visa gift card) has randomly chosen to come to the hands of… Mary (whose dream house would be a “big cozy log cabin out in the woods” complete with fishing pond, swimming pool, hot tub, huge whirlpool tub in the master bath and a giant walk in closet. Her fantasy list doesn’t end there, so check out her comment for the rest). Congrats Mary!

With a URL as broad as Homes.com, there are a lot of topics you might think they cover. Because people buy homes. They decorate homes. They do home improvements. You get the idea. Well, Homes.com does cover all of those things – from all stages of the home buying process to decor and DIY. We especially enjoyed their home values and city profiles (because we’re nerds for stuff like that). But what you’ll probably enjoy the most is the chance to win a $500 Visa gift card from Homes.com this week. Yup, five hundred dolla dolla bills (in plastic form) to spend wherever you’d like for whatever stage of home ownership you’re currently enjoying. Oh yeah, and they’re also giving away a signed copy of our book over on their blog.

    I love my current house, but I dream of a master suite, complete with dual sinks and dual closets, in my next home.

    HOMES ME! I love the house we bought this April! I commute about 40 minutes both ways (which is short to some, I know) but if I could work from home, I’d be VERY happy! Oh, a back yard fence would be awesome too!

    HOMES ME! (Please!)

    I would want a big, open kitchen. I cook a lot, and I currently have a tiny kitchen. When people come over and I run into the kitchen to do something, they follow and we’re awkwardly standing in my 10×10 kitchen. It’s hard to describe, but it’s really, really super-awkward in reality.
