Pahoa, HI, December 09, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- A couple in Hawaii have come up with a unique, pro-active way to “sell” their unique 1,300 square-foot, custom, never-before-lived-in home in a depressed real estate market - they are offering it as the grand prize in an essay contest.
The couple (as WinHawaiianHome.com, LLC) is sponsoring Essay 101, a contest of skill where anyone (21 years old or older) can write a short essay (101 words or less) and, for a $101 entry fee, get a chance to win a brand new, never-lived-in, custom home on the Big Island of Hawaii. This home (affectionately called the “Sweetheart Cottage” due to the many design details) was built by John Williams, a local builder, with the goal of selling it immediately and using the proceeds to finish construction of his Castle, a future bed and breakfast (www.castleinhawaii.com) near Pahoa, Hawaii . Due to the recession, real estate sales are down and thus, this creative and proactive vehicle was created.
Contest entries will be made online at www.WinHawaiianHome.com, although postal mail entries will be accepted also. Local schools will benefit by donation from the sponsor.
