How Can I Enter a Sweepstakes for Remodeling My Home?

Remodeling a home can be a time-consuming, expensive and stressful project. But thanks to the popularity of home design and decorating TV shows and magazines, even people with tight budgets or limited creativity can now have their home professionally remodeled. One resource -- competitive sweepstakes -- gives homeowners the chance to win a free home makeover. Entrants to such contests can win funds to complete the project themselves or to have well-known industry pros do the task for them.

There are many sweepstakes opportunities that allow entrants to win a free home remodel.

Step 1

Visit the official websites of TV networks like DIY Network and HGTV, magazines like "Elle Decor" and "Good Housekeeping," and stores like Home Depot or Lowe's for contests or opportunities to win a redesign. Carefully read the rules to make certain you meet all eligibility requirements. For instance, winners are generally required to show proof of ownership for the home they wish to remodel.

Step 2

Check newspaper or magazine advertisements. Because of the popularity of home improvement shows, many companies not directly related to home remodeling will offer contests where entrants can win free cash for a home makeover. They often announce such contests in the coupon section of your local Sunday newspaper.

Step 3

Use your search engine to find remodeling sweepstakes online. Visit sweepstakes-listing websites and blogs for up-to-date listings of national and regional sweepstakes opportunities. Popular websites include Sweepsadvantage.com. and Contestbee.com.

Complete the application or entry form. Some sweepstake entry forms will require you to include photographs, video or an essay detailing why you should be picked for a free remodel over someone else. In such cases, make your personality shine. Oftentimes, television producers and sweepstakes administrators seek out entertaining or heart-warming people and stories when selecting winners.
