MUST READ: Budget Savvy Diva Opinion: FREE Mortgage Payments if……

Sharing is caring!

I know I know — ANOTHER Budget Savvy Diva Opinion Time — I call them opinion posts, the hubby calls them complaining posts… Either way – I would love if you read them – plus let me know what YOU think :)

Being a Diva I have a lot of opinions — and I love to tell you my horror stories of shopping and dealing with companies — because I feel your pain


When I first saw this picture I laughed… I mean seriously…. I guess the one good thing is that your house would be easy to spot for guests 🙂
Here is the lowdown – I totally would love YOUR opinion about this subject.
This is totally true — if you let them “paint” you house then they in turn will pay for your mortgage!
Here is some of the fine print:
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.
When I first think about painting my house as a billboard —- it seems absurd — but to not have to worry about a mortgage ??? That seems pretty nice to me. I try and rationalize the fact that I spend most of my time inside my house and would never seen the “twitter” logo under my bedroom door — but something does not settle right with me about it. How about you?? I remember in college I thought about sell ad space on my backpack for some extra cash 🙂 But a backpack and a house are a little different.

    A backpack or even maybe a car but not my house. There has to be a limit. We are exposed to so much media each day and we need a respite. Free mortgage payments are tempting but not in a residential area. Please it can’t come to this.

    You know it sounds insane…But when I think about it I would do I it in a heart beat if I had no means to pay my house note. It’s not going to be an ad forever and who cares what people say about least we would have a roof over our heads!!

    I would absolutely do this without a second thought. #1 money is tight and it would be nice not to have to worry about the biggest expense for awhile. #2 I have no interest in keeping up with the Jonses and would find it completely amusing if other people were shocked by the paint job. Everytime I saw the paint job it wouldn’t make me think “ugh media” I would think haha I don’t have a mortgage payment. I think it’s a very creative strategy to get the companies name out, and with as many people struggling to hold onto houses out there, awesome of the company to offer something like this.

    I live in a rural area, not in a residential area. So, I really don’t have to worry about it unless they decide to advertise some new fertilizer. I don’t think if I lived in a neighborhood I’d do it unless I spoke with my neighbors first. However, if they ever decide that the people in my little country type area are worth advertising to, I may would want to do it!

    I think I could see myself doing that. We get too many people staring at all of our kids as they drive past anyway, so this would give them something better to stare at.

    Unfortunately in California most homes built in the last 10 years for sure have HOA where you can’t paint anything but a pre-approved color or plant the wrong thing, let a weed show or park anything but your car in your driveway.

    I think that if it is your house you should be able to paint it however you like. I think this is a great idea for someone who tried to live above their means and is facing foreclosure. I would not do it though!

    Yep I’d do it! I’d want them to pay the mortgage note first before I let them paint my home, just to be sure it was on the up and up, but heck if it meant that being off my list of bills for 3 months to a year, heck yea I’d do it! I’d be the one laughing all the way to the bank with not having that to pay, gives us a chance to pay off a few other bills and money in the bank. I wouldn’t care what the neighbors think and if they asked why I did it, I’d tell them and I bet they’d want to do it too! lol
