I just read about this man who tried to sell his home for a while. Since he couldn't, he is trying to give it away as a prize
for the person who tells the most compelling story about why they want it.
There is an entry fee for his contest and it might be fun. If you try it, will you come back and let me know what you think about it, because I am always looking for new ideas for agents to market their products. This one takes the cake. It is interesting though, and might get him some press, and as I say in my book, Sold! Direct Marketing for the Real Estate Pro, you all need a USP, which is a unique selling proposition.
This one is, because it is fun. He might make enough money on the entry fees to make some money for the house. Apparently he owns it free and clear.
Anyway if you're interested, mosey over to his website about it:http://freehouse.wordpress
