Buy a Raffle Ticket, Win a House?

Raffle Tickets

What happens when the real estate market takes a total shit and you can’t sell your $1 Million house? Well, Raffle it off at $50/ticket instead. So, if you’re interested in a $1M house in Annapolis, you can buy a ticket, or two, or a dozen. The drawing’s the last day of the year, and there’s some charity benefit to it all, as a charity must be involved in any raffle like this. If they sell enough tickets, the house will be yours, free and clear.

Except for 40% taxes, which amount to a cool $400k.

Oh, and Real Estate taxes. So it’s not free. Or cheap. But, you could get a $1M house for $400k…
