If you've ever dreamt of living on an island with 180 degree views of the Atlantic Ocean then this is the competition for you. Bryan Gallagher is offering the chance to win this spectacular house which is located on Arranmore Ireland just off the North West Coast of Northern Ireland. The property is accessible by ferry which you get from Burton Port in County Donegal. No valuation is given but we have discovered the property for sale at 250,000 Euros. As far as we're aware the property is still on the open market.
About The Property
The property that can be won is a detached dormer bungalow. It has four bedrooms, two with en-suite as well as a family bathroom. Downstairs is a living room plus a spacious kitchen/diner. Outside is a private enclosed garden. The property looks fairly modern and well looked after. The views are incredible judging by the images on the estate agent's page. Note that the property comes fully furnished. All costs, fees and taxes will be covered by the owner.
How To Enter The Competition
To enter the raffle you need to be registered with Raffall. This can be done via Facebook or email login. Once at the house raffle page it's a case of answering a question and purchasing tickets. The question pops up in a window which we found disappeared very quickly. Tickets only cost £10 and there's no limit to the number you can purchase. You can purchase online using debit cards. A donation of 5% will be made to Pieta, a charity that helps support people and communities in crisis.
60,000 Ticket Sales
The promoter hopes to sell 60,000 tickets (total revenue £600,000) by the end of July 2021 in order to conclude the draw. If insufficient tickets are sold then the winners will receive a share of the compensation amounting to 75% of all ticket sales. All compensation payments are guaranteed and paid directly by Raffall Limited. This is a little bit different to house competitions run by individuals and should offer more assurance to entrants.
Irish properties tend to do very well when it comes to raffle and the same may well happen here. The property's location is ideal for a holiday rental, especially as vacation may need to be closer to home for a while. The ticket price is on the expensive side but that usually doesn't stop entrants for Irish properties. However we do have to raise the the revenue target versuse valuation. The property is on sale for 250,000 Euros yet the owner is trying to achieve £600,000! Good luck to them if they do reach that target.
