Company Will Pay Your Mortgage If You Let Them Paint Your House


If you agree to let this company turn your house into a billboard, they will pay your mortgage for as long as you allow the advertising. And if you comply with the minimum contract, they will paint it back

I can imagine neighborhood associations are going to love this and city ordinances nobody knew existed will be dusted off? Kind of reminds me of the old painted barns.

I'd want an escrow account. I'm not sure if 'adzookie' is going to be around in five months more or less five years.

Hmm, call bank, ask to remortgage so you can have a 1 year mortgage, after they are done laughing and explain to them how you'll pay, call up this company so they can advertise for a year.

Win?

I could deal with the stares and glares to save 20k for a year. It would be a bit embarrassing though.

I guess if you had a neighbor you didn't like or a friend you wanted to play a trick on, you could enter their information and put your cell number in. Just have a video camera ready to capture your buddy's face when he comes home from work and sees it for the first time. Maybe time it so they are on vacation. Might win 10K on America's funniest video.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Many Americans are struggling to sell their home or pay their mortgage. Now, you can get your mortgage paid by drawing attention to your home with the paint job.This is not referring to a normal paint job, but one that is a house-sized advertisement. adzooiek is a mobile advertising network, and they’re willing to pay your mortgage if you let them advertise their services on your home, including their social media contact information, like the paint job pictured at the top of this story as posted on Adzookie’s site. They’ll paint your home so it looks like a billboard, and as long as the advertisement stays you get your mortgage paid.

I don't know if that link in the first post worked before but it is dead as hell now as far as I can tell.

I wonder how many suckers now have their own home to repaint back to acceptable at their own expense?

I posted it ages ago for amusement value. Not only do they probably have to paint the house but probably have to deal with getting peeling and cracking paint off first.

I don't see many around Chicago since I moved from a campus environment. There were tons of vinyl wrapped advertising cars there for which owners were getting all or part of the payments made.

Reminds me of the guy who got some ad slogan tattooed on his forehead for $10k or something. I'd rather just have them put a billboard on my roof.

I remember when this was in some news magazine. The home had to have 'x' amount of traffic per day past it, 'y' distance from the road, and 'z' amount of front exposed surface area to paint.

Honestly, I'd rather temp for the newspaper throwing bundles at 3am for a few months for some extra money. But, I just painted my house and don't want to do it again anytime soon...
