Who Will Win The HGTV 2.2 Million Dollar Dream Home In The Keys?

Home Stager with Redesign Etc. Home Staging Incorporated in TX

Well, me of course, this is my year, I'm way overdue, all the years of entering, this is my year. Last years giveaway was so disappointing knowing that the winners son knew he was in the "top 3" weeks before the announcement.  I still expected Joan Steffend to ring my doorbell at the last minute, but when I didn't see any mysterious activity going on in the neighborhood, and saw her in a cold environment, I knew it was over for me, once again.  The sad part is no one ever keeps the homes once they've won them. 

HGTV, I promise to love, honor and cherish this home if I am chosen till death do us part.

I actually got a chance to go to the 2007 HGTV Dream home in Winter Park, CO., before they gave it away, looked inside the windows, took photos (I'll have to post those later), met the neighbor, assuring him I'd be his next door neighbor soon, even went to the club house, and had Carte Blanche of the place, there just happened to be a electronics worker there, and he let us tour the whole club house.  The snow drifts were at least 3-4 ', and huge 8' icicles hung from the roof of the house.  They don't call this  the "Icebox Capitol" of the world for nothing.  I believe they get 400" of snowfall a year. 

Would I have taken it, of course, and very graciously so, but I'm ready to be just as gracious when Joan rings my doorbell in March telling me I'm the 2008 Dream Home Winner in the Keys! 

Hmm...Home Staging in the Keys...I like the sound of that!

Last chance to enter is on February 19-5pm est.

Sorry you can't win, but you can come visit me.  I might even decide to let AR members rent it cheap during the off season.  Good Luck.  I'm probably in the top 3 by now.

Sorry Cindy, my time to win! I live here in Miami and when they picked the location for this one, I was excited. Although, I would have liked something that was out of state but I figured it's destiny. Since I'm only 45 min. from IslandMorada, I would be able to enjoy it every weekend. Just like you stated, I wouldn't be one of the ones to give it away. Just yesterday I got a call stating I was a finalist in the Yukon giveaway.

Don't worry, I'm putting it in writing. Cindy Bryant, will be allowed to use the HGTV Dream-House that I, Dawn Rodriguez, won. This use is to be restricted to twice a year for a total of 14 days.

I'm feeling generous so when your visiting my house, I'll come down and meet you and then bump it up to 15 days!!

Good luck to us all!

Hi Cindy!  Yes...the CO house was divine and this one in the Keys is really nice looking too!  Our FL insurances (yes, MULTIPLE, LIKE THREE!!) for Hurricanes is through the roof here ($$$$$)....the thought of paying for those policies alone gives me a heart attack!! 

However, if you should win, and though you are from TX and quite versed on Hurricanes yourself, I hope that we can share a few sunset cocktails to celebrate your fab win!!  The same invite goes to you should I win...afterall, it IS rather close to my home in SW Florida...the new house would be my 'weekend cottage'!!  Good Luck to everyone....

No No girl Now I think someone that lives in say upstate NY should win - as she sits looking out the window at all that snow blow-en round!!  Oh that would be me!!  One year we had a top 3 winner from our town, she didn't win!  So maybe it will be me!  If any of us win the first National AR round-table will be there for sure!!

Well Dawn if you do win, I will take you up on the 15 days of free nights.

Your welcome Paul.

Kathy, How nice it would be to just move in with clothes and have all the rest already there.

Kathleen, when I win all AR members are invited to a special party!

Of course, the home is only a good deal if you sell it.  I have heard only one winner has decided to live in the dream home and their family had a hard time making ends meet.  It is weird as you win the house but not the land.... wouldn't that make it kinda hard to sell?  Anyway, after reading about it I decided not to enter to win anymore and save my luck for the lottery.  Which by the way I plan on winning this year so if you don't hear from me in awhile, you'll know why......

Sandra, Hmm, I never heard of that before. I've just heard the winners can't afford to pay all of the taxes.

Home, home in the keys. Where the beer and the touristas roam...

Ever seen the keys? Done the Duval crawl?

Hope you won.
