Win a house: Canadian holds an essay contest to give away her mansion.
Might be time to bust out that old pad of paper and pencil for a chance to win a mansion.
A beautiful $1.7 million lakefront home in Alberta, Canada can be all yours for the very discounted price of only $25.
Alla Wagner’s health problems have made it difficult for her to maintain the large home, so she’s looking to downsize. She’s been trying to sell the house but hasn’t been able to find a buyer, even though she’s drastically dropped her asking price. So she’s come up with an idea.
Wagner says she will hand over ownership of the house to the winner of an essay-writing contest. She’s asking people to write, in 350 words or less, why getting the house would change their lives. She’s also charging a $25 entry fee just to recoup some of her losses.
She promises to read every letter and will choose a winner after April 5th. You can check out all the goods on her Facebook page by clicking here.
