The Iowa Finance Authority (IFA) and IAR recently announced the contest winners for Under Construction: A Home Improvement Photo Contest. More than 300 REALTORS®, lenders and housing counselors registered for the contest and more than 8,500 online votes were cast for the photo entries.

The winning homeowners received a home improvement gift card, and the lender and REALTOR®, who won their respective contest categories, each received a community betterment grant. The goal of the contest was to foster pride in homeownership and spur home sales throughout the summer.

Congratulations to:

  • Homeowners Joshua and Kelly Adelyotte of North Liberty
  • REALTOR® Karol Miller of Lepic Kroeger in Iowa City
  • Lender Kristen Mayo of Shelter Mortgage in Dubuque
Thank you to the many REALTORS®, lenders and housing counselors that participated in the contest, and encouraged your clients to participate. The true spirit of the contest was to engage Iowans in a fun, friendly competition in efforts to highlight the benefits and significance of homeownership. And your relationships with your buyers and sellers helped us do that.
