The "Ugliest House in Tucson" contest is underway, through Friday, July 2. Vote here.
The contest is sponsored by HomeVestors of America, known as the "We Buy Ugly Houses®" company.
Here's more info from a press release:
“The contest is a fun way to bring the community together to celebrate ugly houses and their potential to be transformed,” said Fred Hubbard of Catalina Valley Properties, LLC. “We all win when these ugly houses become the belles of their block after they’ve had a makeover, adding beauty and value to the neighborhoods.”
Voters can cast their ballots after viewing photos and detailed property descriptions. Nominees for the 2010 “Ugliest House in Tucson” contest were selected from a call-for-entries held in March, when all real estate investors in the Tucson area were invited to submit the ugliest houses they had bought at any time between March 1, 2009 and February 28, 2010. Most of the houses nominated have since been rehabbed and transformed into lovely homes, with some sold on the retail market and others maintained as rental properties.
