Montgomery Homeowner Wins the #MyAlabamaHome Selfie Contest!

Twenty-two entries were received, and more than 2,100 votes were cast in the #MyAlabamaHome Selfie Contest that wrapped up July 7 on AHFA's Facebook page.

AHFA launched the #MyAlabamaHome Selfie Contest on June 1 to celebrate National Homeownership Month. The contest was open to anyone who used an AHFA program to buy their home (or who closed on a home in June using an AHFA program).

Entrants simply needed to snap a selfie inside or outside their home and tell us what they love most about their Alabama home, post it to AHFA's Facebook page during the month, and use the hashtag #MyAlabamaHome

See below for the winner and all selfies submitted during the contest.

Montgomery homeowner, Royale Singleton, won the contest! She had 590 votes on her selfie. As the winner, Singleton will receive a $250 Visa gift card. She purchased her home with the help of lender Reginald Hawkins, formerly of IberiaBank Mortgage, and now with Bancorp South.
