It's always interesting to know the back story as to why a home owner decides to sell their property via a raffle. Many want to simply move or even emigrate. The story behind James Keane's decision however is very moving. They run a business from home and currently have three children with the fourth on the way. Chris has been adopted after he sadly lost both parents. He and the Keane's eldest son are both autistic. The family therefore need to move from this semi detached bungalow in the village of Campile in order to find a home more appropriate for their needs.
How To Enter The Competition
The bungalow has four bedrooms including one with en-suite and walk-in wardrobe. It is described as ideal for a family, retirement or a rental property. There are generous sitting and kitchen areas too. Located on a corner plot there's a large garden, tarmac driveway and detached steel 20ftx 12ft garage with roller door. A video of the property alongside a number of images can be viewed on the Raffall competition page. All costs, fees and taxes will be covered by the owner. No valuation has been given by the owner so we have estimated it for now.
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. A donation of 5% will be made to Cottage Autism Network.
500,000 Ticket Sales
The promoter hopes to sell 40,000 tickets (total revenue £400,000) by April 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.
Although the ticket price of this competition is higher than average we like the fact the owner has set the ticket target at a realistic level. We've seen from competitions involving Irish properties that this kind of ticket volume can be achieved so there's no reason why this one can't follow suit. With a bit of media coverage we could see this competition working and reaching a happy conclusion. Given the back story we'd love to see this one be successful so that the Keane family can move to a home that is perfect for their needs.
