What’s the first thing you’d buy if you won the lottery? A new house? A new car?

Well, HGTV will gift one lucky contest winner with both — plus $250,000 cash — as part of its 2018 Dream Home Giveaway. Entries are being accepted starting Dec. 27, 2017.

Why This Is the Best Giveaway Ever

I may be a little impartial: I love HGTV, and I’ve entered the network’s previous home giveaways a few dozen times. But you’ve got to admit, this is one sweet contest.

The grand prize winner will get a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home in Gig Harbor, Washington, about a 45-mile drive from Seattle. Of course, the waterfront property comes fully furnished and decorated — an HGTV lover’s dream come true.

Originally built in the 1970s, the 3,500-square-foot home was remodeled to bring it up to dream-home quality. It’s a tri-level residence with a casual, coastal-inspired decor and plenty of room for entertainment.

Check out the photo galleries and video clips on HGTV’s website. A one-hour special on the home’s renovation process is set to air on the DIY Network December 28 at 11 p.m. ET.

Another hour-long special on everything from finding the home to adding the final design touches will air on HGTV Jan. 1 at 8 p.m. ET.

In addition to the house, the top prize comes with a 2018 Honda Accord and $250,000 to spend however you’d like. The whole package is valued at over $1.8 million.

Here’s How to Score a Chance to Win

Unlike winning the lottery, this contest doesn’t cost a thing to enter.

For the best chances at winning, enter online daily — once on HGTV’s website and once on DIY Network’s site — through Feb. 16, 2018, at 5 p.m. ET. You can even sign up for email reminders so you don’t forget to submit an entry every day.

There’s also the option of submitting entries by mail as many times as you wish — though, in that case, you would have to pay for postage.

To be eligible to enter, you must be a U.S. resident and at least 21 years old. You cannot be employed by any of the sweepstakes’ sponsors or live with or be an immediate family member of an employee of one of the sponsors. Check out the complete contest rules for details.

HGTV will conduct a random drawing on or around Feb. 27, 2018, to select the grand prize winner and will contact that winner in the weeks following.

Good luck!
