Although this competition is new to Loquax (March 2018) it has been running for some time and featured on local news channels including TFM Radio and BBC Tees. The owner opted for a competition after receiving only one viewing after having his home up for sale for some time.
The website isn't the best we've seen - and the limited payment options aren't good. However, this is probably the only competition where the target number of tickets (35,500) multiplied by ticket price (£5) closely matches the property valuation.
