Winthishouse.ie are offering the chance to win your very own holiday home in Ireland. The property is located in the seaside village of Dunmore East on the south coast of Ireland and is valued at 300,000 Euros. The owners say that the property is "located within easy walking distance of the beach, the park and all local amenities". They aim to create a winner so that they (the winner) can enjoy Summer 2021 in their new home!
About The Property
Actual information about the prize is actually quite limited. We know it has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, whilst the master bedroom has it's own balcony and seaviews. Beyond that it's a bit of guess work and/or enjoy looking at the video/images that can be found at Winthishouse.ie. The property is described as a holiday home so is it only for vacation use or can you live there all year round? Does it come fully furnished? The promoter also doesn't give any indication with respect to costs, fees etc. although it is usual in these cases for them to be undertaken by the promoter.
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 cost £20 each 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 in this contest.
80,000 Ticket Sales
The promoter hopes to sell 80,000 tickets (total revenue £1.6million) by the end of September 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.
Although property competitions in Ireland have been successful with the high price/low ticket target approach this one is on the grabbing the profit side of the fence. However they could still shift a quarter of the tickets and have enough in the kitty so maybe there's wiggle room to giveaway the property if sales tick over 20,000 or more. It's great that the promoter has picked up a domain and had some coverage in local media, but we still think the details about the property, fees etc are way too limited for a property contest.
