Citizens of the Curbediverse, we salute you. You have sent us some truly awful and unforgettable stories of your disturbing/disgusting/horrifying experiences with rental properties in Philadelphia. But we're gluttons for punishment. We want more.
Renters Week 2012 approaches, and we'll be covering everything from AirBNB to Craigslist to a breakdown of rentals in the city. And, of course, we'll have our Rental Horror Stories contest. Here's how it works: each Curbed city site collects Rental Horror Stories and readers vote on the best (or worse, really). The Curbed Philly winner will face off against other cities in a massive poll hosted on Curbed National. Then—and here's the big thing—the national winner will claim one month of free rent (or, for former renters, its cash equivalent). We're talking up to $2,500, people! (Standard contest rules apply.)
Send your write-up to our tipline soon soon soon! So far, we've been amazed.
