2021 could well be the year of Irish win a home competitions because here's yet another. The destination this time is the seaside town of Enniscrone which can be found on the Atlantic Coast of Ireland. It is the home of The Big Yoke which apparently is a Boeing 767 which will soon become a glamping destination! If sleeping in a plane isn't for you then this property might make the ideal holiday home. We don't have a valuation for this property but a similar one was for sale at 145,000 Euros.
How To Enter The Competition
The property has three bedrooms with two upstairs and one downstairs. It includes an open kitchen and living area plus living room with wood burning, back boiler stove. There's also a large front garden and enclosed back garden. The owner has included a video of the property on their Raffall page and you can see a few images on social media. However we would like to see a little bit more of what's on offer. Note that the property comes fully furnished. All costs, fees and taxes will be covered by the owner.
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 £20 and there's no limit to the number you can purchase. You can purchase online using debit cards. As far as we're aware no charitable donations are being made with this contest.
20,000 Ticket Sales
The promoter hopes to sell 20,000 tickets (total revenue £400,000) by thestart of June 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.
The key issue with this particular competition is the ticket price of £20. Usually we'd say that this is too high and could be it's achilles heel but Irish home competitions seem to do well. Therefore it wouldn't come as a surprise if this starts to generate sales. What we do like is that they have set the target down but we're not sure of the target to valuation relationship. The addition of the extra cash prize and the property being fully furnished is good but this competition is looking to generate double the property valuation. Will the luck of the Irish carry this one over the line?
