With the Marbella Villa now won and The Lake District II property about to compelete, it's not a surprise that Omaze have launched a new prize draw which will carry them into The New Year. The new prize, a town house in Islington, also blows away our theory that Omaze are targeting cheaper properties. The last couple have been heading down to (only) £2million but this one is valued at around £3million. Although Omaze are happy to give the location as North London there's actually few details (so do check out the comments below as we're sure our House Compers will dissect this one). It seems slightly odd to us that a UK property prize draw site describes the location as London and goes on about sight-seeing icons like The Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, St Paulís, the Tate, The Shard. We're pretty sure everyone knows what's in London! So come on Omaze why not actually tell us about the property location and neighbourhood?
About The Property
At least the property looks attractive. It boasts four bedrooms and three floors. The main bedroom is location on the first floor with bedroom 2 whilst 3 and 4 are on the second floor. Downstairs comprises of a sizeable lounge area alongside an equally large kitchen/diner that opens up to the back garden. At the back of the garden is a studio area which looks perfect for working from home or getting away from the family. Omaze suggest that the property could make an ideal rental and suggests that it could earn up to £8000 a month. As ever, remember that big houses cost big money to run and frustratingly Omaze still don't provide information regarding general costs such as council taxes etc. Having a millionaire's house is fine provided you can afford to own it! A £100,000 cash prize will be included though to help you settle in or hang on to it long enough to sell so that's at least something.
How To Enter The Competition
Tickets for the competition cost £10 for 15 entries. Unfortunately you can't purchase less than £10 worth of tickets. Other ticket packages cost £25 (40 entries), £50 (85 entries) and £150 (320 entries). A recent new option is the subscription service. Pay £10 a month for 30 entries. Do check the terms before siging up for this! For a free entry you can send a postcard or envelope to the address given on the website. This is worth doing as "once a postal entry has been processed it will be entered in to the next available draw and all subsequent draws until the final Grand Prize drawing". Postal entries have an equal chance of winning as any one paid entry. If a postal entry wins a prize there will be no further purchase or payment necessary to be notified of the win or to receive the prize.
As we mentioned in the other competitions, we think that it's worth entering this Omaze competition as the prize is guaranteed even if not enough tickets are sold. This means there will be a home winner and no competition extensions. Additionally there are early bird entry prizes on offer and the chance to win weekly cash prizes. For example enter before 2nd January 2023 (a longer time frame than usual) and you could win a Jaguar F-Type. Look out for other additional prizes that are offered as incentives for you to enter during the course of the promotion. In terms of good causes, The British Heart Foundation will also benefit from ticket sales. Omaze has guaranteed a minimum total payment of £100,000 for the charity. Note that the competition is open to UK residents only.
Whilst other property platforms are struggling to create winners, Omaze continues to amaze and deliver the goods. The good news for win a house enthusiasts is that they're continuing into 2023 and hopefully we'll see more chances to win from Omaze throughout the year. This particular London Townhouse property we think has a lot more appeal than say the recent Kent, Cornwall and Lake District options mainly due to it's high rental potential and/or easier to sell on for a decent price due to location. It may also generate a bit of interest thanks to people purchasing last minute Christmas Gifts (and why Omaze don't offer the chance to gift we don't know). One final point is do be wary of the subscription service. If you are a regular buyer of tickets it may work out to be good value, but just remember you're buying every month. However you can cancel or skip a month at any time so it might be canny to subscribe for £10 and 30 tickets then cancel as opposed to buy 15 tickets for £10?
