The suspense has been building for months. Now, as the weekend draws near, only a few days separate finalists from a $500,000 home.

For the last four months, people toured the GOAL house at 4200 54th Ave. S, Fargo, and registered to win the $500,000 home from Designer Homes of Fargo-Moorhead. Since the registration period ended Sunday, Oct. 16, the 1,000 finalists have been selected and invited to the GOAL event at the Ramada Plaza Suites in Fargo on Oct. 30 at 1 p.m. At the celebration, only 30 of the 1,000 finalists are randomly selected to be invited on stage. Each will proceed to pick one key to unlock a door. Though 30 finalists will attempt, only one key can successfully unlock it.

“My favorite part of this experience is seeing the expression on the face of the person who wins the house,” said Designer Homes president Robert Leslie. “Besides that, one of the most enjoyable parts is to hear the story of what the winner does with the house and winnings now that they have the financial freedom.”

After the celebration, the winner has the difficult choice of either keeping or selling the house. The $500,000 house is a five-bedroom, three bath home with 1,832 square feet on the main floor and basement. It features an open kitchen with quartz countertop, finished basement with a large family room, rec. area, wet bar and a spacious three stall garage.

The event is not limited to only finalists, everyone in the FM area is invited to celebrate with the finalist. A cash bar, concession stands, live entertainment and a photo booth will be open to the public during the celebration.

The countdown is on! The doors have officially been opened for over two weeks and there are only 11 more weeks until they close.

Designer Homes of Fargo-Moorhead’s $500,000 home giveaway is underway and ready for tours. If you think you don’t stand a chance, think again. For the final qualifiers, the Giveaway of a Lifetime offers an impressive one in 1,00 chance of winning, so your odds of turning that key and hearing the winning doorbell are in your favor.

The home is open to tour Mondays–Thursdays from 3–7 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 1–5 p.m. It’s located at 4200 54th Ave. S. in The Pines at the District development in South Fargo. The $500,000 house is a five bedroom, three baths with 1,832 square feet on the main floor and basement. The home features an open kitchen with quartz countertop, finished basement with a large family room, rec. area, wet bar and a spacious three stall garage.

When you come to tour, you’ll find a registration station downstairs where Design & Living employees can help you sign up to win. Each week, roughly 60 certificates are selected from on-site registrations via email, making it 800 total certificates randomly chosen from people who visited the house.

Those looking to register are allowed one entry per day until October 16. The more times you register, the better your chances are to receive a certificate.

Over the next couple of months, there will be 100 certificates given away via social media campaigns and events that will be announced through Designer Homes and Design & Living websites and social media pages for additional certificates until all 1,000 have been randomly chosen—so follow those pages of Facebook.

After all 1,000 certificates have been given, those qualifiers will be asked to show up with their certificate the day of the final drawing on October 30 at the Ramada Plaza Suites in Fargo. Of those with certificates, the drawing will then be narrowed down to 30 finalists who will be given a key to take their turn at the winning door. So much suspense!

If you’re a certificate holder, you will also be eligible to win dozens of other prizes at the event: pool table valued at $6,000, $4,000 worth of gift cards and more. The winners will be randomly picked from the house certificates awarded. Additional prizes will most likely be announced at a later date.

Good luck! And may the odds be ever in your favor.

Design and Living Magazine Becomes The Official Media Partner For A $500,000 Home Giveaway

Design and Living Magazine Becomes The Official Media Partner For A $500,000 Home Giveaway

Spotlight Media Publisher Mike Dragosavich joined Designer Homes President Robert Leslie on North Dakota Today to announce the official partnering of Design and Living Magazine with Designer Homes to help promote the Giveaway of a Lifetime contest.

Designer Homes of Fargo-Moorhead, for the second time, will be giving away a $500,000 home to one lucky family in the FM area. This extraordinary contest was first held in 2012 when Michele Gilbertson and her family won a custom dream home. This time around, Design and Living Magazine wanted to join in on the life-changing excitement as the contest’s promoter and administrator.

“We are very excited to be partnering up on this amazing event for our community,” Dragosavich said. “We look forward to being the media partner and to be able to bring the public all of the exciting Giveaway of a Lifetime news, stories and announcements.”

The contest will begin upon completion of the house and will run through October 16. The house is currently under construction at 4200 54th Ave. S. in the all-new district at The Pines development in South Fargo and scheduled to be finished in early July. The first open house is Saturday, July 9 from 1 to 5 p.m. Once the house is completed, people will be able to go and tour the home and enter their name to win the house. Open houses will be held every Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday/Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. At the first contest in 2012, more than 100,000 people passed through the Giveaway of a Lifetime home.

The winner of the home will be selected at an event on October 29 sponsored by Designer Homes and Design & Living Magazine. At the event, the contest will be narrowed down from 1,000 finalists to 30 individuals. 800 of these certificates will be selected from people visiting the home, 100 certificates will be selected via social media and 100 certificates will be given away at live events across the community. Those individuals will be brought on stage at the event. Each contestant will then draw a key and attempt to unlock a special door. One contestant will have the lucky key that will unlock the door on-stage and to their new home.

“This opportunity is made possible by a variety of sponsors, including Design & Living Magazine, which is the media sponsor for the event. This is an exciting partnership for Designer Homes and Design and Living as both of our businesses want to give back to the community that has given so much to us,” Leslie said.

“It’s an honor to be part of the excitement of the Giveaway of a Lifetime,” Dragosavich said. “We believe the community is deserving of such a monumental event and we can’t wait to see the look on the face of the person who wins the home.”
