Usually we're quick to spot new Raffall property competitions but this one, despite launching in May, has gone well under the radar. David Brophy is giving away his five bed semi in Ireland - and once again County Waterford is the location. The home itself is described as being "2 minutes from the beautiful beach and promenade area". No valuation is provided and there doesn't seem to be that many similar properties on the market. Therefore for our records we've plumped for a mid-figure based on the ticket target amount. We'll update things if we learn more in the future.
About The Property
The property has five bedrooms (four double and one single), kitchen/diner, living room, reception room, garden with decking and off street parking for two cars. You'll need that space because the property is being raffled along with a 14 Reg Mazda 6 Sky Active and a 15 Reg Audi A3 S Line. The house also comes fully furnished which is ideal if you win and want to offer it as a rental or holiday let. If all that wasn't enough the host is adding in a 5000 Euros cash prize too. All legal fees and stamp duty fully paid. Whilst all this sounds great, the competition does suffer from a lack of good photos. There's only one of the house and nothing of the back garden.
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 £15 each and there's no limit to the number you can purchase. You can purchase online using debit cards. If the property is won then 5% of the host's revenue will be donated to Pieta, a free of charge counselling for people who are suffering from suicidal ideation, engaging in self-harm & those who have been bereaved.
50,000 Ticket Sales
The promoter hopes to sell 50,000 tickets (total revenue £750,000) by the mid October 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.
It's safe to say that Irish House raffles have gone a little bit off the boil and that means successes are harder to come by. Unfortunately we're not convinced that this one will buck the trend. Unlike many other prize draws from The Emerald Isle it doesn't seem to have had any media coverage and whilst there's some social media activity there aren't too many followers. The addition of the cars, cash and furnishings may make this one a little more attractive, but we can't help wonder what the story is behind the host's desire to raffle their property.
