Real Estate Report: Win a Maine house


WEST BATH (WGME) -- Owning a home is only a dream for millions of Americans, largely because of the cost.

One couple says, for a small fee, and some heartfelt words, their dream house could be yours.

Janet and Fred Chapin love this house in West Bath.

They have memories with the grandkids playing in the yard, lazy mornings by the fire and the gardens.

A job transfer landed them in Philly where they live now. Instead of putting up a "for sale" sign, they're giving you a chance to win it.

For $140 and a 300-word essay, the house, all 6,000 square feet of living space, could be yours.

Janet came up with the idea. She heard about a similar contest in Maine.

There are hemlock beams, native stone floors, a sauna, a 2-bedroom apartment over the garage, six bathrooms and the main house even has cathedral ceiling laundry room.

A laundry list of features, but this couple isn't looking to clean up.

The goal is to have 4,200 entries. So grab a laptop, and dare to dream about what life would be like in this West Bath home.
