DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vote today for the 2017 Ugliest House of the Year®! HomeVestors®, the “We Buy Ugly Houses®” company, is asking America to choose the Ugliest House of the Year® from five house makeovers completed by the company’s independently owned and operated franchises across America. Voting continues through midnight tomorrow on the finalists chosen for their unseemly “befores” from thousands completed in 2017.
“Our We Buy Ugly Houses® franchisees around the country submitted their best makeover stories showing how they have turned the ugliest houses into the pride of their neighborhoods. We want YOU to tell us which remodel is the most remarkable,” said David Hicks, CEO of HomeVestors. “People know us as the ‘We Buy Ugly Houses’ people, and this contest shows exactly what that means by highlighting the properties our franchisees take on, and the ultimate result their work has on beautifying communities in more than 150 U.S. markets.”
Photos of the 2017 Ugliest House of the Year finalists are available at facebook.com/webuyuglyhouses, where voters can voice their opinion through tomorrow at midnight.
“A lot of people are curious about We Buy Ugly Houses because they’ve seen our billboards, commercials and letters,” added Hicks. “This is our chance to feed that curiosity by showing off what our franchisees are doing to improve neighborhoods around the country.”
