Advertise your home, get mortgage paid
Apr 2011 07

An advertising company has come up with a way to brand its clients’ messages while putting money in homeowners’ pockets.

The Adzookie advertising company will come to your house and paint the outside of it with ads for one of its clients. As long as the house is painted this way, Adzookie will pay your mortgage (with a minimum agreement for three months).

CNN / Money reports that the idea has sparked a massive response; over 3,000 homeowners signed up as interested in the idea.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of them will end up disappointed. Adzookie is a start-up company, according to CNN / Money, and has only budgeted $100,000 for the program. With the painting / repainting of the homes estimated to cost $8,000 each, that leaves little money left over to pay for mortgages.

Even more unfortunately, I’m pretty sure South End Landmarks wouldn’t allow you to paint the brick on your building.

Details from the Adzookie website:

We’re looking for houses to paint. In fact, paint is an understatement. We’re looking for homes to turn into billboards. In exchange, we’ll pay your mortgage every month for as long as your house remains painted

Here are a few things we’re looking for: You must own your home. It cannot be rented or leased. We’ll paint the entire outside of the house, minus the roof, the windows and any awnings. Painting will take approximately 3 – 5 days. Your house must remain painted for at least three months and may be extended up to a year. If, for any reason, you decide to cancel after three months or if we cancel the agreement with you, we’ll repaint your house back to the original colors.
