It's not a surprise that more and more platforms are popping up to offer homeowners the facility to raffle their property. The latest addition is a company called Rafffl.com. It looks like they hope to be a competitor to Raffall as they're inviting users to use their service to raffle cars, tech, holidays and houses. They are kicking off their quest with this £400,000 valued home in Bridgnorth. The site itself looks stylish compared to Raffall but there are a few missing elements which we hope will soon be addressed.
How To Enter The Competition
The house itself comprises of four bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, utility room lounge and office. Additionally there's a self contained annexe which has it's own bedroom, bathroom and galley kitchen. There's also a conservatory and a large driveway. Images of the property can be seen on the website under 'Win This House'. The exact location of the property isn't given although there is quite a detailed description of the local area.
To enter the raffle you need to go to the competition page and select the number of tickets you wish to purchase. When you've decided how many you wish to buy - and there doesn't seem to be a limit - you simply need to answer a multiple choice question. Once you're happy with your answer you then just need to complete the transaction. Payments can be with your credit card via Stripe. From what we can there doesn't seem to be any option with respect to a no purchase entry route.
90,000 Ticket Sales
Rachel and Jonathan Overton to sell 90,000 tickets (total revenue £450,000) by the Christmas 2020 in order to conclude the draw. Interestingly for a property valued at £400,000 it has quite a low sales target when compared to other competitions. We only know about the closing date and ticket target due to an article in the Shropshire Star. Details about the number of tickets that are needed to be sold and closing date - in fact pretty much any sembalance of terms and conditions don't seem to be available on Rafffl.com. We assume this is an oversight but in the grand scheme of things it is a quite a big one.
Also missing - probably because the terms don't seem to be available - is information about what happens if this competition fails to sell all the tickets. According to the Shropshire Star article a cash prize will be awarded but we're not told what the percentages are or whether any funds go to the promoters. On a positive note the owners will be making a donation to the FareShare Charity. It'd be nice to know what that percentage is though. Can Rafffl.com become as popular as Raffall for home competitions? Only time will tell but a successful first competition would pave the way for further owners to try the platform.
