We've seen win a house competitions for properties in Spain, France and Italy - now they have been joined by Turkey! My Street Mate are offering you the chance to win what looks like a stunning villa. My Street Mate are on Facebook - with a limited profile - and their website doesn't work. We'd like to know a little bit more background about the owners plus we'd love to know a lot more about the property including a valuation. We've estimated the price at £500,000 as mid-point based on the target ticket sales.
How To Enter The Competition
As mentioned the villa comprises six bedrooms and was custom designed by the owners. It was completed in 2019 and is still under Builders Guarantee. Outside you'll find a private swimming pool whilst a separate au-pair suite/annex accommodation offers independent living for up to two people. The property is offered fully furnished so could be used as a holiday rental. Details of the costs, taxes and other expenses are not given on Raffall. The page also doesn't explain the sale process or whether the winner would need to travel to Turkey to complete the sale.
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 cost £2.50 each and there's no limit to the number you can purchase. You can purchase online using debit cards. Note that 10% of the host's revenue goes directly to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
500,000 Ticket Sales
My Street Mate hopes to sell 500,000 tickets (total revenue £1million) by the last week of October 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 should offer more assurance to entrants about the legitimacy of the promotion. Note that you can see the number of entrants only if you've purchased a ticket for yourself.
This property definitely has a wow factor and a six bedroom villa in Turkey for £2 could be a dream come true. The Raffall page does provide a lot of information about the property but does lack some important details such as costs, potential rental, taxes and the sales process. We'd also like some idea of valuation to determine whether the target revenue is fair. It's good to see a donation going to GOSH. Whilst the French Manor house's closing date is too long we do think this one is too short. It'll be interesting to see how well it performs.
