DALLAS, Aug. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The people of America have spoken by casting their votes in the 2011 “Ugliest House of the Year” contest. The winners are featured at www.TheUgliestHouse.com.
The contest is sponsored by HomeVestors of America, Inc., known as the “We Buy Ugly Houses®”company, with participation from franchises in various U.S. markets.
“We’re proud to sponsor a contest that celebrates ugliness, recognizing that even the ugliest house on the block has the potential to be transformed into a lovely home,” said David Hicks, co-president of HomeVestors of America. “If you’re the owner of an ugly house and have any doubt about whether someone wants to buy it, call HomeVestors at 1-800-44-BUYER (28937).”

Nominees were selected from a call-for-entries inviting all real estate investors in participating market areas to submit the ugliest houses they had bought at any time between March 1, 2010 and May 15, 2011.
