Florida Couple Tries Raffle Approach To Unload Their Mansion
One Fort Lauderdale couple has taken a the raffle route to sell their waterfront mansion. As the press release says, moving from their dream home is something the Brannans never thought would happen but the couple has decided that the raffle is the best possible solution. They are selling tickets for $10 and a portion of the proceeds go to a local charity. They are hoping to sell 300,000 tickets which would equate to the house selling for $3 million.
A portion of the proceeds from the drawing will benefit The Mission of St. Francis, a charitable organization in Ft. Lauderdale. The home has six bedrooms including a master suite which measures 1,000 square feet and has a second story balcony overlooking the waterway. The luxury home includes an eat-in kitchen, theater room with a 120" screen, four car garage, and there is a pool and a dock on the waterway. The pictures in the gallery below are small but do show a typical Florida luxury home.
The drawing is set for Christmas Day 2009 or as soon as all the tickets have been sold, whichever comes first. If all the tickets are not sold then a 50/50 drawing will be held with 50 percent of the money collected going to the winner and the other 50 percent going to the charity. Records on Property Shark show that the Brennans paid $2.35 million for the home back in 2005.
