A dad who’s been trying to sell the family home and car to move to Australia has decided to raffle it off.

Dale Tate, from West Yorkshire, has been struggling to make the sale amid the pandemic and decided to take matters into his own hands.

For just £1, Dale is offering a three-storey home, legal fees and stamp duty, along with his 2017 Volvo XC90 Hybrid with a full valet and a years car insurance.

Photos of the house show a front porch, a large garden, and a double driveway for off-street parking to the side, leading to a detached single garage.

The lucky winner will win to the modern-day home, complete with a guest bathroom, four spacious bedrooms, one of which is ensuite.

Dale reiterated that it is a genuine sale as he and his family are keen to sell everything and permanently move to Australia.

The dad just needs to sell 400,00 tickets which he’s offering on Raffl.com.

He listed the details of the house on the raffle website which compensates users should the host not see through their offer.

If the host fails to provide a prize, the winners will receive a share of the compensation amounting to 75% of all ticket sales.

Happy days.

Writing on the website, Dale said it was the ‘chance of a lifetime’, adding: ‘People haven’t got anything to lose really, it’s only £1.

‘Your odds of winning the lottery are about 45 million to one, but this is 400,000 to one if you spend £1.

‘If all the tickets sell, then somebody has to win it. It will make somebody’s day that’s for sure.’

If anyone wants more information on what’s up for grabs, you’ll be getting vinyl flooring on the ground floor, a guest WC, and a lounge at the front.

The kitchen features a range of modern white wall and base units with worktop over, integrated oven, hob, and extractor fan as well as integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. French doors lead to a large rear garden.

The property also features Phillips Smart Lighting throughout, which is controlled by an app, along with a Nest Heating System and smoke alarms.
