Yours, for $101 and some sweat.

Yours, for $101 and some sweat.

Can’t sell your Hawaiian house? No problem! Why not host a writing contest, with the winner getting the cottage! At $101 – and with a stated aim of $6,000 entries – you could move that 3 bed/2 bath house for over $600,000! There’re a couple other prizes, and some of the money is being donated to area schools… call it $550,000.

I love this idea. Always fun to see folks thinking outside the box – and it’s attractive enough that I’m even considering spending $101 I don’t have to entre. The biggest stumbling block for me – the topic. One of those “What’s aloha mean to you?” type thangs. By the time I finished 3rd grade those types of forced topics started churning my stomach.

But, it’s a house! I can always buy some alka-seltzer.
