Strapped for cash but in the market for a new house? Dunstan Low may be your man. The 37-year-old is struggling to find a buyer for his six-bedroom manor house in Lancashire, England so now he's raffling it off.
"After lovingly renovating our house between 2011 and 2012 we have struggled to pay the mortgage," Low explains, "and have tried but failed to sell the property through traditional routes and we would like to avoid repossession."
The house is currently on the market for around $810-thousand, but a raffle ticket only costs $2.50 a pop. If the house sells prior to August 1st, all the money raised will become the prize money for the winning raffle ticket.
