New This Week:


  1. Here they go again with no cash option. Leaves the ‘winner’ having to pay taxes on $961,000. So get a mortgage or dump it, likely at a loss, to pay the taxes. Thanks, but no thanks.

  2. I think there is a cash option. This is written under the prize description, at the very end:

    “In the event that the DIY Network Blog Cabin is not available for Grand Prize Winner to take possession of for any reason, Grand Prize Winner shall receive the ARV of the DIY Network Blog Cabin in cash.”

    For any reason seems to me it would include the inability of the prize winner to pay the taxes and fee’s. I very well could be wrong but I guess a lawyer might know.

    • No, that’s an out for them in case of a problem with finishing the project. It’s not an option set for the winner. If you’ve followed these sweeps in the past, there used to be a clear cut ‘or you can choose the cash option.’ Just the state tax in my state would be $96,000 not counting fed tax and typically you pay tax on the full prize value, not what you net from a sale.

  3. It’s because they kept getting stuck with the houses & DYI isn’t in the real estate business.

    • Poor them. The people that enter these contests aren’t in the real estate business either. If you’re going to do it properly, put enough cash in to cover the taxes. HGTV was trying this too, but then went back to offering a cash option. Does that put them in the real estate business?

      • I was just commenting why they stopped the cash option. The winner could always take out a lean on the house to cover the taxes until he/she decides what to do with the house, it’s still a win win. Just a little more complicated.

  4. Florida? Yep, one Will have a “lean” alright. I believe Ms. Debbie meant to state “lien”…which must first be satisfied before the property may be disposed. “Complicated” and a half, to say the least. So sad that it’s always written in Their favor, Not the Winners’/Consumers’. I’ve yet to nail down exactly how much I’d pay in taxes as the ‘Winner’.

    • Yes, Lien not lean. Thanks
      I wouldn’t call my CPA just yet, the odds of winning this are as good as winning the lottery. Millions of entries.
