Adam Thwaites and his family have decided to try the house raffle route as a way to sell their property and raise up to £50,000 to Grace House. This Sunderland based charity aims to enrich the lives of disabled children, young people and their families. The property is located in South Shields on Tyneside and is just a short drive from South Tyneside beaches and marina. No valuation is given for the property but with £50K being assigned for charity and 10% heading to Raffall for admin fees - the property valuation will be less than £130K.
About The Property
The house is described as having three bedrooms although the smallest of these is currently being used as an office/storage area. Downstairs is a living/dining area and there's a rear extension where the kitchen and bathroom are located. A low maintenance outdoor space completes the package. No images of the outside of the property are provided on either the Raffall page or social media page. However there are a number of images and a video of the rooms. All property transfer fees will be met by the host.
How To Enter The Competition
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. A donation of £50,000 will be made to Grace House provided the competition concludes successfully.
200,000 Ticket Sales
The Thwaite's aim to sell 200,000 tickets (total revenue £200,000) by 7pm on Christmas Eve 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.
UK properties on Raffall have been at a premium this year so it's nice to see a new addition. It's also great to see one with a ticket price of £1. We like the fact that the hosts are also using the raffle to donate quite a sizeable sum to charity. For comparison Omaze guarantee £100K to a good cause with their million pound house promos. The Thwaite's are looking to giveaway £50,000 - a quarter of the total revenue. Will it succeed? With a fair wind and a bit of coverage the £1 ticket price may hook in interest. However we do wonder whether the Christmas Eve deadline doesn't give the prize draw enough time.
