MICHAEL: NEW AT 6:00, WE’LL TA YOU INSIDE THE ASHEVILLE HOME MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TRIED TO WIN. IT’S N F SAL CAROL: GABRIELLE KOMOROWSKI EXPLAINS WHY PEOPLE WHO WIN THESE CONTESTS RARELY HANG ON TO THEM. GABRIELLE: THE 1920’S BUNGAL WAS IN WEST ASHEVILLE.>>THEY CHOSE WEST ASHEVILLE BECAUSE IT IS AN URBAN WALKABLE NEIGHBORHOOD. GABRIELLE: IT UNDERWENT A HUG TRANSFORMATION.>>THE HOUSE WAS COMPLETELY GUTTED AND TAKEN DOWN TO THE STUDS. GABRIELLE: THEN RENOVATED AND DECORATED CELEBRATING THE LOCAL STYLE. MUCH OF THIS ART COMES FROM ASHEVILLE ARTISTS, THE WHITE OAK USED FOR THE ISLAND IN THE KITCHEN USED TO BE ON THE FLOORS. MILLIONS ENTERED THE SWEEPSTAKES PUT ON BY HGT FOR THIS HOUSE AND OTHER PRICES AT $600,000. THE WINNER OF THE CONTEST WAS A WOMAN FROM WASHINGTON STATE. SHE CHOSE TO KEEP THE HOUSE BUT A FEW MONTHS LATER DECIDED TO KEEP IT ON THE MARKET.>>SHE DECIDED RATHER THAN MOVING HER FAMILY TO ASHEVILLE, SHE WOULD PUT THE HOUSE UP FOR SALE. GABRIELLE: MIKE SAYS WINNERS OFTEN CANNOT UPROOT THEIR FAMILIES A THEY DON’T REALIZE HOW MUCH THEY WILL OWE IN TAXES.>>MOST OF THE TIME, T WINNINGS ARE SUBSTANTIAL SO YOU GET ELEVATED INTO THE TOP TAX BRACKET. GABRIELLE: WE LOOKED AT OTH CONTESTS, ONE WAS SOLD LAST YEAR AND T 2013 OASIS HOME IN BOSTON WENT ON THE MARKET SHORTLY AFTER IT W WON ACCORDING TO A REALTOR’S WEBSITE. THIS HOME I PRICED AT $450,000 AND COMES FULLY FURNISHED. EVEN THOUGH THE WINNER WON’T BE LIVING HERE, THE HGTV CONTEST WAS STILL A BIG WIN FOR THE AREA.>>A LOT OF ATTENTI GIVEN TO

Someone that does not need the homes always wins them. Give it to someone living in a shack or mobile home.
