This Riverside House Is Selling For Just $280 — With a Catch
If your city's rent prices make you cringe, you're about to feel very tempted to move to Indiana, US. A family is selling this gorgeous 371-square-metre home in Vevay, Indiana, for the unbelievably low price of $US199 ($280), but they want something in return — a passionate essay.
That's right. Tell this family why you deserve this space in 200 or fewer words, and you just might be the incredibly lucky new owner. Known as the "River House," the home is located along the Ohio River, about an hour from Cincinnati, and it has vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, a deck, and much more. The family has made "many memories" in the home, but it's currently being used as a vacation rental.
"There are many hardworking, talented people that could benefit from this opportunity. We have been very fortunate to have had opportunities and would like to give someone else an opportunity," the family explained.
"I do not want the job of judging the essays; that would be tough," homeowner Rhonda Penninigton told Fox. "I graduated from Hanover College. I contacted them and they are supplying an anonymous panel of judges to judge. . . . They pick the winner."
So, get ready to brush up on your writing skills! Anyone 18 or older can enter, and hopeful homeowners have until Sept. 29 to submit their essays.
