The owners of this Manchester home renovated it just over one year ago. We presume that they aimed to sell it via conventional means but "due to covid [we] have decided to put it on competition". The exact location of the semi-detached home isn't given but we do know it's in the M7 area of Manchester and just five minutes drive to Manchester City Centre. No valuation is given but M7 semi-detached home prizes do seem to vary considerably on Rightmove. Our valuation is an estimate based on info provided in comments.
How To Enter The Competition
The house has three double bed sized bedrooms plus fully renovated kitchen and bathroom. New flooring has been laid throughout the property and it also benefits from a new boiler. It has a large rear garden plus there's a parking bay (but no garage). According to the Raffall page some of the furniture will be included plus the prize includes £10,000 cash and a 14ft trampoline in back yard. Images of the proeprty and a video can be seen on the Raffall site. Details about taxes and costs are not mentioned but generally these should be met by the owner.
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 £3 and there's no limit to the number you can purchase. You can purchase online using debit cards. No donations will be made to charity as part of this competition.
350,000 Ticket Sales
The owners of the property aim to sell 350,000 tickets (total revenue £1.05million) by the end of September 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. Note that if 100% of the tickets are not sold then the promoter receives nothing.
Whilst looking at valuations for three bed semis in Manchester M7 we struggled to find any that were worth over £1million. Regular visitors to Loquax's win a house section will therefore know what comes next. Yes - in our view this one is trying to sell way too many tickets. If house competitions were able to generate 350,000 ticket sales and pull in a million in revenue then we'd see many more successes. Good luck to the owners if they manage to pull this one off but we'd be surprised to see if Salford do get another win a house competition winner with this contest.
