First-Time Buyers, Tell Us Your Horror Stories!

We're sorry. We don't want to traumatize you by having you relive the past. But you can turn your dross into gold when we devote a full week to first-time home buyers later this month. If you're still waking up sweaty in the middle of the night remembering your first time, send a write-up to our tipline and we'll post the story (anonymously) on our site. Readers will vote for the write-up that tells the most horrifying first-time home-buying experience, and the winner will go up against the winners from all the other Curbed cities. The winner of that contest gets a $2,500 gift card to the home store of their choice. (Standard contest rules apply.) We think you, as Philadelphians, understand what this means: As the latest Curbed site on the block, we must now prove our competitive bona fides—and this contest includes Detroit, so get typing. Santa and a snowball, indeed.
