Locals Clamouring For Curl Curl Beach Beauty
By: RSL Queensland
RSL Art Union General Manager Tracey Bishop said people living at Curl Curl, Dee Why and other suburbs near the prize home were buying the most tickets.
"A surprising number of tickets are going to hopeful locals," Ms Bishop said.
"People who live in this part of Sydney are keenly aware of what an incredible prize this is and our first Sydney beach house, at Freshwater, sold out ahead of time on the strength of record ticket sales.
"The $5 chance to win such a magnificent home in this beautiful and prestigious neighbourhood is tremendously appealing."
Ms Bishop said younger Sydneysiders – aged 30 to 44 – were making up a larger than usual share of ticket buyers.
"We saw unprecedented interest from younger ticket buyers for our Freshwater prize in 2016 and have been on the lookout for another suitable home since then," she said.
"Gen Ys are spending about $38 each on tickets. Across the lottery, ticket buyers generally spend $50 each, which gives you a one-in-350,000 chance.
"They are better than lotto odds and have the added bonus of helping our Defence veteran community."
The spacious five-bedroom beach house at Curl Curl, with heated swimming pool and spa and finished off with $179,000 worth of premium furnishings and appliances, has an estimated rental return of $140,000 per annum.
The cost of the lucky winner's transfer duty (almost $200,000) and first year's rates and water are all part of first prize.
Tickets are available at rslartunion.com.au (http://www.rslartunion.com.au), by calling 1300 775 888, or from the prize home at 18 Austin Avenue, North Curl Curl – open for inspection 9am-5pm daily.
Sales close Friday 12 October and the winning draw is Friday 19 October.
