Couple Raffling Off Their £170,000 House And A BMW For A Quid
A family who want to pack up and move to Australia are raffling off their home and car.
Richard and India Taylor are offering the chance for one lucky winner to pick up their £170,000 County Durham property and their BMW X3 for just a quid. Not bad, eh?
The couple were originally trying to flog their house the traditional way but say the pandemic made it impossible, so they decided to try and raffle it off.
Richard, 27, India, 29, and their two young sons have lived in the property for around 18-months but are desperate to sell up and move to Perth to start a new life.
Speaking to Chronicle Live, Richard said: "We had an aim to move by the end of October but now that plan is in jeopardy.
"We are getting a lot of positive feedback on the house with people saying they'd love to put an offer in, but many are struggling to get a mortgage at the moment.
"We have had no joy and we have some friends in Yorkshire who raffled their home so we thought we'd give it a try."
The three-story house has three large bedrooms, with the master bedroom having its own en suit; a spacious lounge with a bay window;an open plan kitchen and dining area; a study; and a 'suntrap' back yard.

Meanwhile, the 'midnight blue' car comes with tinted windows, alloy wheels and heated leather seats. Fancy.
Richard added: "The house is completely mortgage free and the car is finance free.
"All the legal fees will be paid on both sides. The raffle company does take a percentage of the money.
"It is so difficult trying to get on the property ladder so for £1 that is incredibly cheap and is life changing for someone."
Raffle tickets are on sale now and are already picking up a fair amount of interest.
The family are hoping to move to Australia later this year and, as such, have placed a deadline on tickets of 7 November.
