Karen Davidson is the owner of this property and she is hoping to emulate the success of the first Raffall competition. She is adopting the raffle approach as it would "be a great idea to allow someone to get onto the property ladder at such a small cost". Whilst we do know that the home is located in the town of Scissett that's pretty much all we do know. The valuation of the property isn't given and there's no description of what the home offers. Thankfully there's a video and a few images of the prize!
How To Enter The Competition
What we do know is that this is a 5 bedroom detached property. It boasts a modern looking kitchen with high gloss units. A dining area overlooks the garden and bifold doors open up to let the outside in or the inside out. The bedrooms all look good and there's a modern family bathroom. Things like about central heating, parking spaces, garages etc you'll just have to guess at! We do think the promoter could have made more effort "selling" the property on the Raffall platform.
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 £1 and there's no limit to the number you can purchase. You can purchase online using debit cards. As far as we're aware this property competition is not making any donations to charity.
400,000 Ticket Sales
Davidson hopes to sell 400,000 tickets (total revenue £400,000) before Christmas 2020 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. The fact that the previous competition concluded within 4 weeks may also encourage entries.
On the plus side this property raffle does include details about the legal process should the house be won. On the negative side it pretty much excludes everything else. Whilst the images of the prize look great it would be useful to have a description or two. We still find Raffall's lack of location information really irritating but understand why it's not there. However that doesn't excuse not including details such as the property value, details of the house and more information about location and amenities. This probably won't stop people entering though!
