#WhyWeRent Instagram Contest

Posted in  Contests, Hollyburn, Promotions,  on August 15, 2018



Get your camera’s ready! Hollyburn Properties Limited is excited to announce our new Instagram contest, #WhyWeRent. From August 15th – September 30th, we want to hear from YOU for a chance to win a $5000 package to The Brick PLUS two months FREE RENT* and other amazing prizes.

This contest aims to shed light on the budding sharing-economy and perpetuate the idea that renting long-term doesn’t have to mean a “transition phase.” It’s time we stop making excuses for why we rent and take pride in this lifestyle decision! Through sharing photos on Instagram that depict why YOU rent and some of the benefits you’ve experienced in doing so, we can work together to de-stigmatize renting and re-define the meaning of “success” for modern day.

Integrated communities and the rise of the sharing-economy has blossomed in recent years, meaning many are choosing to invest in experiences, travel, activities, and lifestyle instead of real estate, vehicles, and large material possessions. This is proven in the successes of companies such as Car 2 Go, We Work, and Spotify as well. Given the current market, choosing to rent versus own can be largely economical, resulting in increased flexibility, sustainability, and transparency.

“Freedom strikes when the pressure to save for a down payment is let go.”

Enter the #WhyWeRent contest and share what you LOVE about renting! The winners will be determined by a panel of judges, looking for creative imagery, relevant captions, and post engagement.

How to Enter:

Post a photo or video on Instagram telling us why you rent.
