Chicago home wins ugly award

Something fun today!  A home at 10347 S. Avenue L on the city’s South Side was voted the ugliest home in America.  HomeVesters of America (the company famous for their “We Buy Ugly Houses” billboards) sponsored their second annual Ugliest House of the Year contest, and this home won!

The home is 100 years old and was purchased by franchisee Scott Gottlieb.  Scott said when they first saw the home that it was filled so much with clutter that pressed against the walls, they couldn’t get the front or back doors open.  He said that animals were living in the home and that it was filled with garbage. 

Gottlieb purchased the home, handled the clean-up process and then sold it to a wholesaler who gutted the home and restored it, where he quickly sold it again.

There were 10 finalists in the second annual competition.  digest19a_srch_feed_20081218_14_52_57_1134_h300w4001
