Dearest readers, you probably know by now that we're gearing up for our first-ever First-Time Buyers Week come later this month, as we've put out several requests for your stories, tips and advice for folks who are looking to purchase their first pad. Thanks to all who have submitted, we greatly appreciate it.
Now we're seeking out your truly terrible tales of home-buying as a first-timer. During the last week of March we'll post the horror stories right here on Curbed SF and have a vote for who has suffered the most. The SF winner's story will go up against all the winners from the other Curbed cities on our National site. The winner of that aggregated showdown will win a $2,500 gift card to the home store of their choice. Think you have a story so rotten it could score the $2,500 prize? Send it to our tipline. Standard contest rules apply
