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 would look for a home with a nice backyard and an existing deck of some sort.. or something that has the potential for a diy backyard space!!

  2. Aisha says

    Homes Me! I would like a house where everything wasn’t a project needing to be done… I’ve done fine so far but taking a such a huge project as a single “poor” lady has been difficult. Oh well you live and you learn. I love my house though!

  3. Miranda W. says

    HOMES ME!!
    Having only been in this house for a year and a half, there’s not much I would change. If I were buying tomorrow I’d say a Christmas tree window would be all I need, provided everything else stayed the same. Not much of a list huh? It’s the only thing I don’t like…nowhere to put the tree that I can see it from outside.

  4. Molly says

    Homes me! I’m a renter. If I were in the market for a house I suppose top priorities would be an easy commute, natural light, and open floor plan.

    • Nicky says

      I forgot the question – next time around I would like a door from the basement to the outside…….

  5. IWannaBeKate says

    HOMES ME!!

    I’d like an open layout so we wouldn’t need to break the bank on remodeling, and CENTRAL AIR (not very common in the northeast, but sorely needed!!)

  6. Kerry says

    HOMES ME! My #1 must have in a new home would be a washer and dryer hookup on the same floor as the bedrooms. Ours is down in the basement and we cloth diaper so… There is a lot of laundry hiking!
