Horror Stories, Please!

Buying a house for the first time? Do it recently? Have a horrific story to tell us? Then listen up. A mere three weeks from now, we'll kick off the very first Curbed network-wide Rookie Roosts theme week.That means we'll be featuring maps and guides for first-time buyers, neighborhood tips and advice, and reports from the front lines of buying property for the first time, among other nuggets of wisdom and fun tidbits.
A bit more info on how the contest will work: All of our fellow Curbed sites nationwide will collect the entries and put the best and the brightest up to a vote toward the end of Rookie Roosts Week (March 26 through March 30). The winners from that round will all face off in a massive contest hosted on Curbed National—all voting dates and times TBD. Then—and here's the big thing—the national winner will claim their rightful $2,500 gift card.
