After a series of draws where just a cash prize was offered to the winner, Raffle House have decided to feature an actual property for their latest giveaway. The featured property is described as a "magnificent family home in Kent, worth £2.7m that includes a whopping £200,000 worth of furnishings". A quick Google search shows that the house has recently been for sale on Rightmove with a guide price of £2.3million. The estate agent explains that "Meadow View is a beautiful, luxury, detached family home, built from new by the current owners in 2019". They also give the location as in the Kent town of Cranbrook which is 30 minutes from Tonbridge and around a couple of hours travel to London. To keep all options open though Raffle House are also offering the winner the value of the house as an alternative prize.

About The Property

The six bedroom property comprises of two floors with five bedrooms, all with en-suite, on the top floor. The main bedroom also has it's own dressing room. Downstairs you'll find the sixth bedroom alongside a large kitchen/diner, snug area, lounge, games room and office area. A two floor outbuilding houses a double garage, pool house and storage. This is all set in 1.3 acres of magnificent grounds which also include your own swimming pool. The property comes fully furnished. Raffle House will cover all the required legal costs including stamp duty. According to Rightmove's listing the property has "the remainder of a 10 year new build warranty in place" and "advanced heating and electrical systems ensuring energy efficiency in a low-cost eco home". Raffle House have a few images of the property on site but you'll find more on Rightmove.

How To Enter The Competition & Discounts

To enter the prize draw you simply need to select the number of tickets that you wish to purchase. It now operates in a very similar way to Omaze. For example for £10 you can get 15 tickets, £25 lands you 50 tickets and there's a massive 500 tickets should you wish to part with £100. The 2000 tickets for £300 looks to be back for this round - not good in terms of responsible play. However there is a free postal entry option. Note that you must be registered with Raffle House to use this option. For this prize draw Raffle House are supporting multiple charities and entrants are able to choose from one of over 25 charities to donate to. Like Omaze, Raffle House have also added a subscription option. This apparently gives you three times more tickets than a one-off purchase and exclusive prize draws.

Ticket Target

As with Omaze there isn't a ticket target indicated on the site. All we know is that there's a closing date set for the 31st August 2024. This draw also does have an early bird draw. Enter before the 31st July 2024 and you have the chance to win a BMW 520i or £55,000 cash. According to the terms if by the closing date "the actual number of Entries received is less than the required number of Entries, the Competition will close and on the Draw Date there will be a Draw, at the sole discretion of the Promoter, by reference to the proceeds received from the Entries to award to the Winner the Cash Prize". This figure is determined as "70% of the total value of the total Entry Fees received up to the Closing Date net the Promoterís operational costs; less (2) the amount of the Charity Donation".

Our Verdict

It's interesting to see Raffle House switch back to featuring a property - we think for a win a house competition it's a good move, especially as the property is pretty decent. Of course RH are keeping all bases open by also offering cash to the winner. This does make us wonder what happens to the property if the winner does decide on the cash? Of course there's also the issue with respect to whether enough tickets sell. Whilst Omaze always guarantees that the featured prize will be won Raffle House doesn't and that's something to consider. What would be great to see is a RH winner outside this £2.7million property as that would give us a genuine alternative to Omaze. Will you be entering? Is a featured property better than just a flat cash prize? Let us know in the comments below. Enter Competition Here
