We're back in Ireland again for yet another win a house competition. Despite their high ticket prices these raffles for properties in that region continue to perform well. Win Atlantic Home for example finished early! Hoping to emulate this success is Richard Thompson who is raffling his "fabulous house and home bar in the countryside". The property is located close to Waterford City and beaches are just 5km away. We don't have a valuation for the home so we've made an estimate based on an estate agent listing for a similar property in what we think is the same area.
About The Property
The country house comprises of four bedrooms, country style kitchen and lounge/diner with real fireplace. A detached garage has been converted into an Irish themed bar and this apparently can seat up to 20 people! Added into the prize package is a brand new shed, Honda lawn mower, gardening equipment and a hot tub. There are even a couple of storage sheds which could be used to house chickens if you fancy trying a bit of "The Good Life". All fees, taxes etc will be covered by the host so the winner won't have to worry about anything other than picking up the keys.
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 £15 and there's no limit to the number you can purchase. You can purchase online using debit cards. The competition page doesn't indicate any specific good causes but the hosts do say that they will make donations to charity. These details will be outlined on their Facebook page if/when the property is won.
50,000 Ticket Sales
The promoter hopes to sell 50,000 tickets (total revenue £750,000) by September 2021 in order to conclude the draw. Note that the host does indicate that if "the target is not reached they will make a decision on whether or not to give the prize depending on the amount sold". 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.
Ireland house competitions with high ticket prices and low targets seem to do well - we have no idea why - and there's no reason to think this one will be any different. In fact we'd be very surprised if this particular competition struggles. We like the look of the property and there's plenty in the package, including the garage bar, that many will fine attractive. The host's Facebook page is already quite active which is a very good sign. Hopefully this will be another success for the Irish.
