Looking for the perfect escape from all the new crazy? Look no further than this beautiful Catskills Cabin, which you can win simply by submitting an entry fee and a 200 word essay!
How to Win:
Surely no one would just give away a dream property like this one, right? Wrong!
It’s time to dust off those school-days essay skills and get ready to win big with this incredible competition. The owners of this beautiful cabin are holding an essay competition to find new owners for their stunning lakeside property.
All you have to do is submit a 200 word essay on the prompt: “How would owning the lakefront dream home change your life?” along with the $149 entry fee. If your answer is persuasive enough, you’ll become the proud new owner of this $825,000 dream-cabin.
As with any other wonderful opportunity, there are a couple of catches. The new owners of this Catskills cabin will be responsible for the property taxes, which cost about $11,000 per year. The winner will also be on the hook for income tax (as the property will count as income), which could be substantial — depending on your circumstances and the appraisal value of the property.
There’s a bit more to it as well.
While your entry only requires a $149 entry fee and a 200 word essay, a certain number of entrants must submit or the competition is off. Specifically, the owners are looking for 5,500 entries. Anything below that number and the competition is off.
So what are you waiting for? If you’ve got a spare $149 and a talent for short-essays — this could be the dream competition for you!
If this sounds like the competition for you, then head on over to check out all the guidelines and enter here. You can also check out the inspirational video tour of the cabin and find out even more about the area and all it has to offer.
