John Mason International featured on ITV’s Tonight show last week, which saw reporter Helen Skelton explore why so many of the UK population are keen to buy and sell, with the state of the economy so uncertain and asks: could the property bubble be about to burst?
The show featured one of our customers, the Rowcroft family from Salford who had always dreamt of moving to Australia, and decided that 2020 was the year that dream would finally come true, but when they put their five bedroom home on the market in February, for offers over £290,000, they had no joy.
By the summer the family were starting to give up hope, but then they heard about another family who had sold off their property – by raffling it! Using a raffle website, they set themselves a goal of selling 200,000 tickets at £2 each, the whole family got involved and they even became minor celebrities. The Rowcrofts’ hard work paid off and in September they reached their ticket sale target and they’ve made enough to give them a headstart when they embark on their new life in Brisbane.
