    If I won the 50,000 I would upgrade all my appliances, remove carpet and install hardwood floors. I would make necessary repairs to my home and redecorate and spice up my front and back yard!

  2. Gwen Thomas September 22, 2013 at 9:17 pm #

    My house is in desperate need of repairs. I lost my husband five years ago. Since then I have not been able to do any repairs on my home because of the lack of money. I would repair two bathrooms ( one the shower works- not the toilet) the other bathroom , the toilet works but not the shower. I am 72 years old & live on social security so I don’t have the money for repairs. I need new doors on the outside. My cabinets are coming loose from the tops in my kitchen. I would be very happy if I won the sweepstakes & would worry less about my home repairs!!

    A wonderful surprise of $50,000 would give me the opportunity to update the condo for our retirement years. Purchased a few years ago as an investment, we would love to update our 40 year old space in a great retirement community. New bathrooms, adding a laundry area so we don’t have walk the flight of stairs to the community room would be a dream come true. If any money was left…. we would open the kitchen area up for a more modern open concept. As baby boomers looking at retirement in a few years- we long for the modern space for our next phase in life.

  7. LaQuinta Pernell September 22, 2013 at 9:44 pm #

    If I won $50,000, I could finally get a new car. I’ve been driving the same car since high school that my father gave me. That car made it through Hurricane Katrina and still gets me to work but has major leaks and sometimes it doesnt start. Sometimes its hard to get my 2 year old back and forth from the daycare so I would be thrilled to recieve even $10,000 would suit me. Im in need of a new car!!!

  8. Josie fouts September 22, 2013 at 10:03 pm #

    “Fifty” is the code
    If I won the prize I would build my very own closet. I have a 4bdrm home and my 3 kids and husband have closets. I have peices of my ward robe in each room and do my hair and makeup on my bedroom floor. We have tried painting and decorating our home but busy schedules and tight budget leave us with unfinished projects. I watch and dream every single day!!!

    I am in desperate need of a totally new kitchen. My house was built in the 50s, there are plywood cabinets that the veneer is coming off in cracked pieces. We removed a cooktop from the counter and put a piece of shelving in the hole. There are marks on the ceiling from the cabinet that held the tiny little wall oven from that era of homes, Help!!!

    We moved into our house 7 years ago with one child and we now have 4 children. We need to redo the basement for extra living space for the children. We also have a special needs child that needs to stay in our bedroom so a way to separate it a little for some privacy would be nice.

  28. Lorri September 22, 2013 at 11:42 pm #

    If I were to win $50k I could fix my basement. I had to gut it out because of water damamge and mold and me and my children have asthma an allergies. It is now an unfinished basement. Would also like to remodel kitchen because my house is old and needs to be renovated and pay off some bills. Can’t do anything with the basement and kitchen because it cost so much to clean up the water damage and I don’t have any more money left to put the basement (which was fully finished and furnished) back together right now.

  29. JD Terhune September 22, 2013 at 11:42 pm #

  31. Joann Bankston September 22, 2013 at 11:44 pm #

    If I win this is what I will do with $50.000. I would put some money away for my one &. Only granddaughter collage fund then I will help my son pay off his debit & the rest of the money I would take my family on a real Vacation for ten days. We have never been on a real Vacation before but if I win that’s what I am going to do with my winnings.

  32. Doris jackson September 22, 2013 at 11:53 pm #

    We purchased our home in May 2013, took all our money to close. Left us without any money for a fridge or stove. We had to ask family for food. It was hard since we were always the one helping others. We would the money to buy floors, paint and furniture and to get caught up on bills.

  33. Kassie McAllister September 23, 2013 at 12:04 am #

    Code word is “fifty”. I have been an hgtv fan for years and have been fascinated with all the programs and talented people . I was widowed quite young with three children. I have been blessed and been able to hold onto our home. I have enjoyed working on our home inside and out but it is at the point where there are major projects that have had to be let go due to cost. if I were the winner I would be able to update the heating system, make electrical repairs, possibly update the living room and kitchen and add some curb appeal. I can’t begin to tell you how much I have learned from your shows. Thank you so much!

  34. Itzelth Rodriguez September 23, 2013 at 12:04 am #

  40. Michelle Lira September 23, 2013 at 12:22 am #

    If I won the contest I would put a pool in our backyard. I talked my husband into out house 10 years ago with the promise that we would put a pool in one day. Unfortunately after several job changes we are no table to afford to put a pool in. It would be a great 10 year anniversary gift.

  41. Juli September 23, 2013 at 12:35 am #

    If we won $50,000 we could afford to spend more time in Europe with my stepson!

  42. bbe1 September 23, 2013 at 12:36 am #

    I bought a 30 years old house that need a lot of work. Almost everything need to be redone. The reasons why I bought that is that that was the one that I could afford and that could give space for my 4 kids. If I win 50000 dollars, I will finish the basement, in order to create more living space for the kids. I need an extra bedroom for the nanny that want to hire. I also need to fix the backyard so my kids can enjoy outdoors. The gate is as old as the house and is falling, there is no sitting area. Thank you

  43. Tracey Gills September 23, 2013 at 12:38 am #

    If I won the $50,000, I would use it to pay bills, help as many others as possible, and if anything is left I would get new hardwood floors throughout the 1st floor.

  44. Lorena Herrera September 23, 2013 at 12:46 am #


  45. carrie September 23, 2013 at 12:52 am #

    If i won the 50k i would use it to do upgrades to our new place we are buying. Upgrades-new windows in 3 bedrooms, kitchen, living room along w/new patio sliding door. Also a heat pump and ac. Money leftover would be then spread out among painting projects: inside and out(mint green not and new fence.

  46. appo1 September 23, 2013 at 12:58 am #

    If i win 50000 dollars, i will first finish the basement so that my 4 kids will have space to play. Then i will fix my backyard because the fence is as old as the house, 30 years, and it is falling apart already. I will also fix one room in the house that is not done so thet i can have a bedroom for the nanny that i want to hire for my kids,but at this time, i don’t know where she will rest when she needs to.

  47. Diane September 23, 2013 at 1:06 am #

    We’ve been in this house for almost 27 years and raised two daughters. Our lives have been focused on them and now an up coming wedding. It would be nice to finally spend money on upgrading the 70′s kitchen!

  48. Carolyn galloway September 23, 2013 at 1:42 am #

    If I win $50,000 I will get my 2 1/2 bathroom/ 3 bedroom house of 23 years updated inside @& out! Our home is old school & desperately needs some help!This would be wonderful as I make the Very best out of life; one sweet day @ a time, however I live with a disease called RSD/ CRPS & major osteoarthritis…

  50. Paula September 23, 2013 at 8:24 am #

    If I was lucky enough to win the $50,000 prize I would visit my father and 95 year old aunt in Arizona who are both begging us to come visit since they can not come to Chicago. It would be amazing for all of us. I would also pay some bills and do some much needed home remolding projects

  51. Dan September 23, 2013 at 8:29 am #

    I would love to win the money so I could finally purchase a new car. I am still driving a 1997 vehicle which I don’t want to talk bad about, but it just isn’t safe to put my four little kids in. So, I am crossing my fingers that I somehow win. Thanks for the opportunity!

  52. Paula September 23, 2013 at 9:03 am #

    If I by some miracle I won the $50, 000 prize I probably run down my street naked and screaming! Just kidding – but I always wanted a reason to do that. So HGTV and Quicken Loans please make my dreams come true!!!

  53. Rosemarie Grapner September 23, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    With $50,000 I could invite HGTV to remodel the kitchen in my 100 yr old home. The kitchen area is ample, but the work space is very limited. “Fifty” is the word. Really do enjoy the HGTV program.

  54. Taniqua williams wood September 23, 2013 at 10:15 am #

    With the money I would improve my landscape and shop for new appliances plus pay off my car.

  55. Monica S. September 23, 2013 at 12:47 pm #

    I would use the money to go towards the purchase of a home.

  56. Marilyn F. September 23, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    If I won the $50,000 I would “raise the ceiling” in our master suite (make a cathedral with open beams). We bought our retirement home approx. 4 years ago and moved in almost 2 years ago. Most of our efforts have been on the exterior of the home (putting siding on the house, removing sidewalks that lead to nowhere, etc.) The master suite used to be a garage and the previous owners converted it to a master bedroom suite. The floor of the suite was built up to prevent the room from being cold and damp in the winter months, but the ceiling was not raised. We are both tall and the suite feels like a cave. The master suite bath has plenty of room and would love to make the shower larger. If selected as the winner, my dream of raising the ceiling could come true. This is a huge project, but if there is any money left, I would do some landscaping to add curb appeal. Thank you so much.

  57. Carol September 23, 2013 at 1:55 pm #

    If I won – I would be able to finish the work we started on the house but had to put on hold due to me getting sick and having to use the money on that instead. Unfinsihed kitchen and back room.

  58. Esmeralda Vences September 23, 2013 at 2:30 pm #

    i would pay towards my home loan, i have such a big family money is tight every month so this would bump down my monthly payment.

  59. Alesia Wallace September 23, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

    If I won $50,000.00, I would get my Sister-in-law house remodeled. She is a giving person and hhardly has anything for herself, she will give her last make someone elses life a little easier. The code is fifty.

  60. Arlid Cruz September 29, 2013 at 2:01 pm #

    If I won $50,000.00, I would re-decorate my house as a surprise from my parents :)

  65. Kim Webb September 29, 2013 at 8:16 pm #

    If I won the $50,000 I would Finally get to do the much needed repairs and upgrades on our home. I get so many ideas from hgtv and I would love nothing more then to carry out some of those ideas!

  66. jodi r. September 29, 2013 at 8:17 pm #

    I just recently bought my grandparents house that was built in 1949. 1 month after I moved in a tree fell on the house. Not a lot of damage only to the roof. The last time this house was updated was 1973. I would reinsullate the house. Install central heat and air. Totally redo the water closet/bathroom, living room, 2bedrooms, and weather proof the basement.

  67. Kishawna Jenning September 29, 2013 at 8:18 pm #

    If I won this sweepstakes I would be able to afford to clean my credit and purchase my first home. I’m in extreme debt and this amount would be a blessing and I would be able to move out of my apartment and into a a home. It would definitely help me get back on my feet and start over. I would be so grateful.

  68. bbe1 September 29, 2013 at 8:21 pm #

    I have 4 kids 11, 4 and twins that are 3. Because I needed much space, I bought a 30 years old housr 1 year ago that still had all original structures. I can tell you the house needs some work. Plus the basement is not complete. The roof is old, the bathrooms are old, the carpet smells. If I win 50000 $, I will work on all those issues and make more space in the basement for the kids.

  69. Paula Mertz September 29, 2013 at 8:24 pm #


  70. denise northup September 29, 2013 at 8:25 pm #

  71. Michele September 29, 2013 at 8:28 pm #

    If I win I would finally install the pool I’ve wanted for 11 years and pay down some of my mortgage.

  73. Curtina September 29, 2013 at 8:35 pm #

    If I win $50,000, I would use it to pay off my student loans. My loans are a couple of months away from going to collections, so the money will help me pay them off. :-)

  74. Kanisha Overstreet September 29, 2013 at 8:36 pm #

    If I won the 50k I would put 20k down on a house after being homeless as a single mother with two hiys was har. I still dont have a bed we have a place now but to purchase a house after being taking advantage of would be a blessing. There is a 3 bredroom house around the corner that is in my budget. I lost a lot of money trying to fix my credit and helping out parents, this would be a true blessing. Thank you for the opportunity.

  75. Jan McClure September 29, 2013 at 8:38 pm #

    What would I do with $50,000.? That’s an easy answer. I would buy books for classroom libraries. I am a teacher in a very small rural school district. As Michelle Giorlando mentions in her blog about “Classroom supplies…”, budget money is tighter than ever in so many districts. I would LOVE to help the teachers in my elementary school supply their classroom with books for the children. Putting books in the hands of children would be awesome!
    After that, I don’t really know. I’ve never had that much money before. Probably… help my children pay some of their college loans.
    Thanks for offering this sweepstakes!

  76. Heather September 29, 2013 at 8:40 pm #

    Dreaming of adding an art studio, to finally unpark the passion, hidden within. Then, to take the next step, to the possibilty stone, to create and delight others “in fields of heather” made possible by Quicken Loans! Ah yes, dreams sometimes do come true… as someone of us, will soon see… and of course, I do hope this time, for it to be me!

  77. Jannice Wright September 29, 2013 at 8:40 pm #

    If I won this money it would help me fix up the singlewide moblehome me and my family live in now. The home needs lots of repairs. The roof leaks and now we have wall damage. I watch the show all the time. Even if I couldnot fix the problems we have,the money would be a good down payment for another more secure home.

  79. valerie nguyen September 29, 2013 at 8:45 pm #

    Everyone would upgrade and update their house and that’s because they all own a home. But with us, myself personally, we dont have a house yet, but certainly $50,000 is very nice a truely a great help to us! First, I would probably use about $10,000 to take both of my kids to vietnam to visit my grandmother because that is very important to us right now due to her critical health issues. And when we come back from vietnam, I will use the rest of $40,000 to finish my degree in teaching and then after that I can buy us a house… and it would certainly be nice and great if we won another $50,000 by then so we can update our house.

  80. Sherron Gillespie September 29, 2013 at 8:47 pm #

    It would truly be a blessing to WIN

  81. Olajuwon Walker September 29, 2013 at 8:50 pm #

  101. Beatriz Castillo September 29, 2013 at 9:23 pm #

    If i won the money some of it would go towards the down payment to buy a new home for my husband, our two kids and I. I would also use some to help my parents and in-laws save there homes which are both in jeopardy of being repossessed. This money would mean so much to not only us but our whole extended family. Thank-you.

  102. Cyndi Wellington September 29, 2013 at 9:24 pm #

    If I am fortunate enough to “WIN” this amazing sweepstakes, the money would be put towards a much needed new roof and new windows. I love HGTV and even have my HUSBAND liking it now!!! Good luck to everyone who is on this exciting event!y

  104. Peggy September 29, 2013 at 9:26 pm #

    If I won the fifty thousand, I woul pay off my mortgage and make needed repairs/ upgrades to my home. I would add metal roofing to stop leaks and new siding/ foundation. I would also payoff additional bills such as my student loans, credit cards, and put the remainder in the bank for my sixteen year old’s college education which will be coming up in two years.

    I would build the additional room and deck on my parents house. Build the deck for my husband, upgrade bathrooms and laundry room, install a closet system in our master closet.

  107. stella chagares September 29, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

    I have a business on the beach and ever since Katrina and BP—-we cant seem to make anymoney. Just breakinng even every year nothing left over. I try to make ends meet with my social security but cannot. I work hard but am not happy at what is left over. I am 70 years old and want toknow what happened to the golden years. Where we are at the summer ends in october and begins in April. so, we dont have all year round business If I win the $50,000.00 I would remodel my rentals and try to raise my prices to make more money. Also I would give some of the winnings to my best friend who is on disability in New York who is very needy of funds. I pray for help soon.

  108. Rose L Barta September 29, 2013 at 9:41 pm #

    If I win 50000, I would pay off my loc on my condo. In the past 5 years, due the economy…value has gone down 10000…would be most blessed to receive!!!

  109. lori September 29, 2013 at 9:42 pm #

    I would use it to help my daughter and to get out of Kentucky

  110. lori September 29, 2013 at 9:45 pm #

    I would use it to help my daughter get back on her feet financially and be able to leave the state of Kentucky which would be great healing for her and then I can buy my stained glass for my 17 foot windows in my home.

  111. Nancy A Foubert September 29, 2013 at 9:47 pm #

    I feel selfish for applying for the prize after reading the comments from all the other needy people. However, the money could be used to help many people. I enjoy watching HGTV, especially House Hunters. We surely want many things. It is difficult imaging how it has changed since starting married life in a small rented apartment with a mattress, table and two chairs. Our best piece was a T. V. But we were happy. The code word is WIN.

  112. Laura Sutton September 29, 2013 at 9:48 pm #

    If I WIN this money, definitely I would pay off my morgage & upgrade my kitchen & bathrooms!!

  113. lori September 29, 2013 at 9:48 pm #

    What is awaiting moderation? Am I saying something wrong? I would help my daughter and buy some beautiful stain glass for my 17 foot windows in my home. She needs a new car that can tow horses and the rest would probably go for gas. lol !

  114. Rachel Pena September 29, 2013 at 9:49 pm #

    WIN !!!

  115. Hazel Wilson September 29, 2013 at 9:51 pm #

    I would have a Master Bedroom built for my husband and I. We gave up our bedroom to my mother who moved in with us for the past four years.She has epilepsy and it is dangerous for her to sleep upstairs, therefore, my husband sleeps in the crowded, dusty, smelly, cold and hot garage because it is hard on him to climb the stairs where the extra bedroom is. He was diagnosed with Prostrate cancer. Thanks to God he had surgery to remove it, but his health has been failing ever since the surgery last year. I cry, because he has giving up so much for my mother, really what man does that? not only that, he has shared our home with my family since we have been married-13 years!!!!! It is time to give back to him—He is my selfless hero. We desire to have our own bedroom. The money would also help us replace our heating/ac system that went out this summer while we were helping some displaced family members stay with us until they found a place to stay, now everyone in our family have heating and air—we are going without—Once again, my husband will have to endure sleeping in a cold garage or we all will sleep in a cold house this winter. This would be the blessing that we have been waiting to receive, My husband deserves it!!!!!

  116. Carole Day September 29, 2013 at 9:53 pm #

    WIN. I would do something with my back yard

  117. Nancy A Foubert September 29, 2013 at 9:55 pm #

    If I won, I would give 10% to my church. 30% would go to charities. The rest would be applied to my mortgage. The code word is WIN.

  118. Virgil September 29, 2013 at 9:56 pm #

    I would love to be able to siding my house plus other upgrades. “WIN” Thanks

  121. Ingrid Biesaart September 29, 2013 at 9:58 pm #

    The word is fifty…..I would so remodel my 1940′s kitchen, blow out the walls to the dining area and make it all open concept. :-)

  122. Judy Hammet Kelly September 29, 2013 at 9:59 pm #

    I need so many home repairs, kitchen, bathroom, powder room, laundry room!

  126. Silvia September 29, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

    If I win $50,000.00 I would remodel my house. I would make an additional master bedroom and change the window to hurricane proof and add the bar for safety. My 94 year mother lives with me due to health problems and I’m 54 dealing with blood clots for the second time. Living in Florida, when I put up the boards on the windows they don’t come down until the weekend before thanksgiving cause I just can’t do it by myself anymore like in the past, put them up and rove them several times throughout hurricane season.

    My house was built in the early 70′s so it’s starting to look like it needs a remodeling. I’m also thinking of my future. I would like to make the two bedrooms into a small little home, sound proof with its own air conditioning, electricity so I can live there and rent the bigger part of the house while working, hopefully part time in my future.

    This sounds like a big project which probably is but if HGTV can help me with the remodeling, I thinks it would be wonderful.

    Thank you and have a great day.

  127. ire September 29, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

    I reading all post and dreaming to have that money for down payment to be first time home buyer .Traing to save money but is hard to do that. My dream is to have home not this rent apartment…

  128. jason.bennett September 29, 2013 at 10:15 pm #

    If I won it would help my fiancee and her daughter fix the house and start our life together

  129. Kathy wedgwood September 29, 2013 at 10:19 pm #

  131. Christine September 29, 2013 at 10:25 pm #

    My house needs major repairs. Inside and out. Starting with a leaking roof in which I have had patch after patch job that has not fixed the issue. I would use the sweepstakes to either repair the roof or get a new one. The remaining money if I have some leftover would be to make room to room house repairs that has extreme wear and tear and if there is any left after that I would want to spend it on outside cosmetic repairs for my house, help pay debt, and go shopping for me and my grandchildren.

    My husband is deceased now and I am functioning on limited income. Due to this it doesn’t allow me the money I would need to make the necessary repairs so I need financial help.

    If I was to win this sweepstakes it won’t just benefit me, it would benefit all my grandchildren because my home is truly their second home and for some of my grandchildren my home is their only home and when I go into the kitchen to fix them meals I would like to do that without my roof leaking all over the counter.

    HGTV Extreme Sweepstakes (Quicken Loans) I don’t just want to win I need to win. Please Help!

  132. Matt Sisko September 29, 2013 at 10:26 pm #

    Win! 50,000 dollars? You bet, we can use that… we have a nasty pond in our back yard and a delapidated porch. We have two grandkids that we watch regularly ages 2 and 5 and they have to play on the porch. It is terrible condition and we fear the pond if they were to get out of the porch. We would love to fill in the pond and make a play area for them and rebuild the porch so they are safe.

  133. Hilda martinez September 29, 2013 at 10:32 pm #

    My dream extreme home will start with the fifty thousand dollars that I’m going to win.

  134. Raymond Morales September 29, 2013 at 10:33 pm #

    If i won the 50,000 I would have my mother’s house renovated. She really deserves it. She’s lost her husband and her sister within the last year and my grandmother was diagnosed with demitia. She works so hard to barely make ends meet and takes care of all of us on a small income.Her story is so amazing but yet she continues to hurt financially and emotionally. This would mean the world tho her.

  135. Bill September 29, 2013 at 10:34 pm #


  136. Lisa September 29, 2013 at 10:36 pm #

    WIN…..I purchased a home a year ago, and shortly thereafter lost my job. I was planning to use the money I had saved to redo the kitchen, bathrooms, paint and install hardwood floors. Needless to say with the loss of my job I had to use that money to pay the monthly mortgage. I don’t have any furniture in my homem so I would also use the money to buy furniture.

  137. Ingrid Biesaart September 29, 2013 at 10:36 pm #

    “WIN” I would love to win so I could update my 1940′s Spanish style home. I’ve spent all my money on the necessary upgrades to the plumbing and electrical, the stuff that you can’t see. Now I want to be able to do the pretty, fun exciting stuff. I’d love to be able to blow out a wall from the tiny kitchen and just open up the whole room.

  138. Alice September 29, 2013 at 10:41 pm #

    If i was every so lucky to be chosen our house would need a need roof,maybe a second floor we have 6 people in a 3 bedroom house kind of crowed ,we are retired and money is very tight,social security doesn’t cut it.”WIN”

  139. Kirsten September 29, 2013 at 10:57 pm #

    We would remodle the first floor (bedrooms/bath/den) of our two story condo. $50k would help so much :) thanks!

  140. vicki bignell September 29, 2013 at 11:10 pm #


  141. Safie September 29, 2013 at 11:10 pm #

    If blessed with $50K, I would pay off my dad’s hospital bills and renovate my mom’s house starting with replacing the floors of the house with hardwood, followed by the entire kitchen, her master bath, and then anything else to spruce up her pad. My parents truly deserve it. My mother gives so much of her love, time, resources to others on a DAILY basis, and I would love to give that back to her in a major way. My dad was diagnosed with colorectal cancer last May, endured chemo until January of this year, was in remission for a couple of months, was diagnosed with liver and bone cancer May of this year, and once again is enduring chemo. TALK ABOUT LIFE THROWING YOU CURVE BALLS! I just want him not to have any financial burdens. I’m trying to help both of my parents, but it’s hard when you don’t have full-time employment after trying for a couple of years. I usually don’t spill like this, but it’s kind of therapeutic. Have a blessed day all!

  142. joyce September 29, 2013 at 11:18 pm #

    WIN ….I would remodel parts of our house.

  143. Barbara September 29, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

    If I were to win the 50k I would do a complete renovation on my home! It is very dated and in dire need of some love!

  144. Carol September 29, 2013 at 11:29 pm #

    When I win the 50K, I would use the money to help my son and daughter with home purchase and repairs. My son bought a house that needed a lot of repairs and remodeling. He ran into so many problems with almost every room that he is out of money and still hasn’t been able to move in. My daughter and son in law are just starting a family and I would help them buy a house. Then, if there was any money left, I could use it to go visit them often!

  145. ire September 29, 2013 at 11:34 pm #

    50k will be my down payment for house..I dont like my rent apartment but no option to save money for down payment.13 years and is not posible to save.This will be from….. God money coming to me..Win is my option..good lack to all..

  147. Keana Beckum September 29, 2013 at 11:38 pm #

    If I was blessed to win the 50,000 sweepstakes, I would repair the house my 96 year mother is leaving me. She is still living and it has always been her dream to fix it. What a joy that would be!

  148. Susan C. September 29, 2013 at 11:41 pm #

    If I WIN $50,000 pay off the mortgage. The balance remaining use for updating kitchen floor, counters; new master bedroom/bath flooring and a new roof.

  149. appo1 September 29, 2013 at 11:59 pm #

    If I am lucky to win 50000 $, I will replace my roof and my electrical unit, I will finish my basement, change the carpet thatvis smelling, fix my plumbing and redo the bathrooms. My house is 30 years old and I have 4kids. Between taking care of the kids and fixing the housr, I dont know where I will get the money. This housr has water leking from the roof and from the bathroom. The ac unit is 30 years old.

  150. joan r September 30, 2013 at 12:20 am #

    I retired early and we moved to a new state last year so I could take care of my disabled husband and young kids, and so we could be near his family. We sold most of our old furniture and have yet to get much for this house. I’d finish furnishing it, and also have some cabinets built for storage of toys, books and movies.

  151. debbie September 30, 2013 at 12:32 am #

    If I would be blessed with this gift I would remodel the bathrooms. The windows need replaced to improve energy savings. The carpet needs replaced. The air conditioning unit is antique and needs replaced with an energy efficient unit. If I had anything left I have always wanted a mural painted on the wall….just dreaming:-)

  152. Angela Hunger September 30, 2013 at 1:16 am #

    If I were to “WIN” the 50,000 it would be amazing!! My husband and I have three children, two in college and one in high school. We live in a beautiful two-story colonial that was built in 1927. It has been in my family for many, many years. However it is in dire need of updating, and there is always something that needs repairing. My husband is a 25 year veteran police officer, and I am a stay at home mother, so obviously we struggle to make ends meet, let alone have enough left over for repairs and updates on our home. I would love to replace the roof, and repair the siding that has dings all over it from hail! Also I would love to have the original wood floors restored, I still remember running on them when I was a little girl, and recall how beautiful they were. I would like to replace the old kitchen linoleum with ceramic tile. The laminate counter tops are torn and cracked, and I would love to replace them with the quartz or granite counter tops that I see at Lowes, when I am walking around dreaming of all the things I would love to do to our home. The pillars on the front porch desperately need repairs, the bottoms are rotten and need to be replaced. I would also like to do something to make the windows more energy efficient, as they are very drafty. Restoring our family home to it’s formal glory would be a dream come true! Thank you so much for the chance to actually be able to do it!! God bless, and good luck to everyone that has entered the contest! Sincerely, Angela Hunger

  153. MARIA REYES September 30, 2013 at 1:19 am #

    We are buying a manufactured home, but it is need of a lot of repairs. We would use the $50,000 to make the necessary repairs. The floors need to be replaced, the stairs going to the house is a run-down make shift ramp. The other stairs leading to the backyard is rotten. The kitchen and bathrooms need repairs. There is no landscaping and/or gates. The interior and exterior needs paint. We don’t have the money to make these repairs. The house is livable but unsafe. It is all that we can afford to buy. The prize money would be a great help to us to renovate the home. It is a dream for us to win something huge like this.

  154. Sam Arriaga September 30, 2013 at 2:19 am #

    My family of four would LOVE to win $50,000.00 in order to renovate our twenty-four year old kitchen and master bathroom. Talk about timing, our family is presently in the market of refinancing our existing Home Equity Existing home loan and adding on a additional 30,000 to 50,000 added to the home refinance loan. Love HGTV!!! HGTV gives our whole family education into the state-of-the-art design and trends. Thank you for for this wonderful television programming that not only educates our family but brings our family unity together.
    Thank you from The Arriaga Family of four. Hope to hear from you soon. We always look forward to your next program.

  155. donna September 30, 2013 at 3:46 am #

    We had our house built in 1985 since then we have aged and are disable if I WIN $50,000 the money would be used to make our house more age friendly..

  156. Joyce G. September 30, 2013 at 5:37 am #

    If I win I’ll dry and insulate our basement, update our 1979 harvest gold bathroom, add on a work space behind our garage, and new flooring for the whole house.

  157. Bonnie September 30, 2013 at 7:22 am #

    I use a black magic marker to conceal scratches that come up on my marble like painted counter tops. It’s sad, but it works. I would really like new countertops!

  158. jade September 30, 2013 at 10:03 am #

    I would put it towards my first home. My dream since I was 10 was to have my own home,and watch my kids play in our big backyard.

  159. laurie J September 30, 2013 at 10:34 am #

    If I won the 50,000, it would enable me to move to northern Califiornia, and to put some of the money down on a home. In California, I will be working to rescue dogs and operate a doggy daycare. Currently I work with the developmentally disabled and will also find a way to have those folks work with me as we love animals. All of this depends on having the money to move,and to buy a place to live. Here’s hoping…

  160. Cherie Dick September 30, 2013 at 11:05 am #

    I would pay up my mortgage.

  161. Marilyn F. September 30, 2013 at 12:51 pm #

    If I would win the fifty I would update my home by making changes to the master bedroom suite and possibly do some extreme landscaping. Love HGTV and watch every chance I get.

I can’t wait! Our daughter is so excited to have a back yard.

  168. Georgia Collins October 6, 2013 at 8:19 pm #

    50,000 dollars would pay off all my bills. and I would have enough for a down payment on a house. something my family and I have wanted for year but something always happens and the money has to go some where else. I think It would change my life Hey maybe even go back to school.

  169. Georgia Collins October 6, 2013 at 8:24 pm #

    My husband lost his job a few months ago, mine will be ending after many years in a few months. Our furnace is having a MAJOR problem, our roof is leaking, the foundation wall is collapsing and both cars are on the last leg. I cannot even begin to tell you how this money could help our situation improve just a little bit!
