Omaze seem to be working on running a new house prize draw every three months which is great news for wannabe property millionaires. The prize on offer this time round is a beach front home in Kent which has stunning sea views. It's valued at £2.5million and it looks incredibly attractive. With respect to the location of the property details are pretty limited but it's possible to determine it. Omaze are saying that it's a beachfront house in Kent but then Kent is a pretty big county with a number of seaside towns. However if you read the blurb on site then Omaze reveal that "Kingsdown’s secluded shingle beach is just a few steps from the house". This places the location north of Dover and south of the town of Deal. See the comments below for more details as posted by Loquax users (thanks especially to Jason Clery).
About The Property
The four bedroom house, which takes up 435sq metres, is mainly contained over one level with just bedroom four on the lower ground floor. On the Ground Floor are three bedrooms - all with ensuite - plus a large kitchen diner, sitting room with bar, study and a plant room! A lift takes you down to the Garage. Images and a video tour of the property can be found on the Omaze website. There’s no mortgage, no stamp duty or conveyancing to pay. Omaze suggest that the property is perfect for holiday lets and could bank £5,000 per calendar month. We always remind at this point that big houses cost big money to run and again Omaze 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 £50,000 cash prize will be included though to help you settle in or hang on to it long enough to sell.
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). 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". Confusingly the terms state you can make one entry via the free entry route and then says that there is "no limit to the number of entries" made that way!
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 July 24th 2022 and you could win a Porsche Taycan 4S. Look out for other incentive prize draws to encourage you to purchase tickets. In terms of good causes, Global’s Make Some Noise 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.
Omaze have again picked out another stunning property to offer to entrants. If you fancy living in Kent with amazing seaviews or having an incredible rental property on your hands then this is well worth checking out. Interestingly the value of this particular prize is £1million less than The Cotswold II giveaway and £500,000 less than The Cornwall giveaway. Could the decision to offer slightly cheaper houses be indicative of a decline in interest in Omaze prize draws? Possibly although we have to acknowledge that there's still a £2.5million prize to be won. We wonder whether if Omaze will instead offer more spot prizes thereby creating more winners during each house raffle period?
