Ugliest House In America Contest Includes Chicago, Dallas, New Jersey, Boston, Richmond, And... Denver

Every city in America has some ugly homes. Or at least, as some say, houses with "character." But is there a city with the absolute ugliest? The company behind those ubiquitous (and equally ugly) "we buy ugly houses" yard-signs is attempting to find out. While the competition currently only includes six cities, and at this point it seems more a contest of cleanliness than aesthetics, there's a small part of us hoping Denver can land the title.

The contest runs through July 22, with the winner receiving a $500 gift certificate to Home Depot. The event sponsors noted in a statement sent to HuffPost that "Most of the houses nominated have since been rehabbed and transformed into lovely homes."

Click through the slideshow and let us know -- which city has the ugliest house?
