If you can write an excellent persuasive essay, you may be able to get a three-bedroom house for $100.
Calvin and Diana Brydges live in Aylmer, Ontario but they plan on moving to Barrie, Ont.
For the past two years, they have been trying to sell their house, without luck.
Then they had a creative idea.
They would hold an essay contest, with the house going to the winning entry.
The winning entry will be the essay that best answers the question, “why will this home benefit you?”
The house is worth about $300,000. The Brydges will sell their home to the writer of the winning essay, as long as they get 3,000 essays. Each essay writer will pay $100 to submit their essay.
If the couple doesn’t get 3,000 essays by the end of August they will give everyone their money back.
