Grafton Builder Co-sponsors Sell By Design Contest for Homesellers

Gilmore Building Co. is teaming with Hallmark Sotheby's International Realty, Weston Nurseries of Hopkinton, MA, and Phillips Design of Concord MA to offer a contest for homeowners seeking to sell their homes in the next 12 months.  The Sell-by-Design Contest provides the grand prize winner a palette of custom designed home improvements having a value of up to $50,000.  The purpose of the improvements is to produce a "facelift" that makes the contest winner's home more marketable.

The contest is open to single-family homeowners whose homes are located in the Central MA towns of: Ashland, Dover, Framingham, Franklin, Grafton, Holliston, Hopkinton, Marlborough, Medfield, Medway, Milford, Natick, Northborough, Sherborn, Shrewsbury, Southborough, Upton and Westborough

Applicants must enter the contest not later than March 31, 2010 by visiting the contest web site and submitting a 100-word essay on why their homes would most benefit from a facelift.  Once the facelift work is complete, the home would be listed for sale by Hallmark Sotheby's International Realty.

Five runners-up will also win flip video cameras and consultation packages from the four participating companies.

Gilmore Building Co. believes the Sell by Design contest presents a perfect opportunity to demonstrate to homeowners that a higher selling price and shorter sales cycle can be realized by enhancing a home's attractiveness before the selling process begins.  We chose to participate in this event because we believe strongly in this concept and because, teaming with the talented contest sponsor companies to showcase what is possible, is exciting.
