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.

    Homes Me, please!
    The 820 square foot home I currently live in is not exactly ideal so the must-haves for the next home are pretty extensive. One thing I certainly long for is a larger bathroom!

  2. Alicia B says

    Homes me! We live in a townhome now and I wish more then ever we have a bigger living room, back patio and yard!

  3. Alison says

    Homes Me! So many items are on my list, but a fenced in backyard for our black lab puppy, Wyatt would be great for late night outings.

  4. Veronica S says

    Homes Me!!!! I just bought my first house less then a year ago and i LOVE IT! The only thing I’d change would be to add a hot tub to the backyard….bc, honestly, who doesn’t love a hot tub?!?

  5. dana k says

    Homes Me! I would want a house with more walls….our current house it too open and it isn’t the greatest for sleeping babies! Oh, and I am loving stone on the exterior.

    HOMES ME!!
    If we were to get a new home today, I’d probably want a larger kitchen/dining room area. I love my kitchen now, but our dining room is awfully small, I’d want the two a little bit more together then how our house is now. I’d also want a bigger yard for my daughter and dog to be able to run around in.

    I would have to have the big kitchen that we added onto our house. It was the one big drawback to our 1950s house. A small old kitchen with no dishwasher. Now that we have four of us, no way would I do this.
