House Raffle Tickets

By

Hello All,

A few questions have come in regarding the mailing of raffle tickets. According to the information I received from the US Postal Service, postal regulations prohibit the mailing of raffle tickets. This is a federal law mandated by congress. However, I’ve seen that many house raffles across the country continue to mail the ticket. My understanding is that one may mail a ticket confirmation or a ticket receipt, but not actual raffle tickets. So I suggest that you print out a ticket confirmation and mail that. The ticket confirmation can have the ticket number on it, but it is not the actual ticket. In fact, you want to keep the official ticket to put in the bin at the drawing event.

For more information on this, check my website at www.isoldmyhouseinaraffle.com click on the Articles tab, then click on the article titled “Raffle Ticket Format”.

To your success!

“The book really does take you through the entire process. I feel like Diane holds your hand from beginning to end from qualifying the grand prize home to what happens after the drawing. I’m a homeowner and I’ve had difficulty selling my beautiful home. Now I know what it takes to sell my home in a raffle. I know exactly what type of nonprofit I need to partner with on my house raffle and what to expect. I’m excited to get started.”

"Consulting with Diane by phone has been invaluable. Her knowledge on the subject of house raffles is enormous, and she has really given us a better understanding of the process as we move forward with our house raffle. She has been more than willing to take the time needed in answering all of our questions. After consulting with Diane, we feel we have a much better chance of putting together a successful house raffle and are excited about making it happen."

“What a great marketing tool! This is a hot new method to get a property sold. My clients love this idea—I already have my first raffle house lined up. I’ll use Diane’s process to get and sell more listings.”

“I attended Diane’s workshop on February 27th, and she’s got it all together. Not only does she know how to pull off a house raffle but you can tell that she was a teacher because she knows how to convey the information. She broke the process into bite-size pieces and gave us exercises to complete so we were involved. Before anyone attempts a house raffle, they should attend Diane’s workshop–there’s more to it than one could imagine.”
