We're past the 55 weeks of January and already McKinney are on their third property raffle for 2024. Unlike the previous two we don't think that this particular property has been featured although a similar competition did run in 2023. Back then it was a 4 bedroom property with cash and a BMW. This time round the house looks different and there's a Range Rover Evoque outside. After a Google search we think that the property involved is in fact 6 Woodford Villas, Armagh. There was a listing for this particular home on Property Link Estate Agents but it's recently been removed. According to the website "the home is located in Woodford, just off the Newry Road, in the exclusive relativity new development Woodford Villas". From what we can gather from this site, CPS Property, valuations start from 290,000.

The Property

McKinney describe the property as a "detached home with a generous garden and spectacular outdoor features". It has four bedrooms with two on the ground floor and two on the upper floor. The upper floor houses the main bedroom which comes with an en-suite, a walk-in wardrobe, and a cozy reading area. The living area "includes a wood burning stove, a stylish drink cabinet, and electrically controlled furniture" whilst outside you'll find "a bar, fire features, stunning landscaping, a hot tub, and ambient lighting". The property comes fully furnished and the pize bundle includes 20,000 to help you move in and a Range Rover Evoque. McKinney don't mention anything about rental for this particular draw. If a new home in Amargh isn't for you then there's a cash prize alternative - which for this draw is set at 200,000.

How To Enter The Competition

To enter the competition for the chance to win property in Armagh or cash alternative you simply need to answer a multiple choice question about the country. Note that you're not told whether your answer is right or not but the question is so absurdly easy that you won't need Google to check. Once you've made your selection it's simply a case of completing the purchase of your tickets. There is a free entry route offered for entrants who wish to take that option. Entry is via postcard and details about how to complete your entry are given on the website. Obviously with just a few days left (sorry) and the current postal strikes it's probably a little too late to get any NPN entries in now.

39999 Tickets

McKinney Competitions aim to sell a maximum of 39999 tickets at 59.97 (total revenue just under 2.5million assuming full prices are paid) by the end of the month. At time of writing however the ticket price was down to 35.98 so do look out for discounts. To encourage you further to play there are instant win prizes of 100-500 up for grabs too. According to the website the draw date is "always brought forward to next working day after all tickets are designated" and that the "date counter is just a possible maximum draw date". At time of writing just over 1100 tickets had been sold and this only really jumped when the discount was added. We are constantly amazed though that people are still willing to fork out 35+ for the chance to win a property.

Our Verdict

McKinney are loving the property prize draws in 2024 and there's no sign of the bubble bursting. Whilst they'd love to sell out this particular draw they just don't have to. Sales of 1100 tickets is still a lot more revenue than some previous win a house draws could imagine taking. Furthermore despite the short turn around time, McKinney know that they probably only need to sell around 6000 tickets to make this a profitable venture for them. The house itself is quite attractive but perhaps is only going to appeal to those in the local area. For everyone else a ticket price of over 30 (make sure you're not paying full price) for the chance to win 200K might be a lot less appealing. Enter Competition Here
