Few days separate us from meeting the winner of the draw for the Vera Playa house. A prize that will go to the winner of the first draw organized in Spain by the technology company Sesortea and for which there are still entries available from € 5. You can follow the draw live transparently and before a notary. Despite the pandemic, the company will meet all its deadlines, without postponements, and the draw will be repeated as many times as necessary until a sold number appears.
There is still time to participate with very special offers for this final stretch in a draw that is generating a lot of interest. Founded by Manuel Gonzálvez and Pablo Carballo, Sesortea aims to popularize the house lottery in Spain. This platform allows homeowners, whether individuals or companies, get around their houses with all technical and legal guarantees.
The participations are five euros and packs are also available that include additional numbers and discounts to increase the chances of being awarded. Sesortea also has a recommendation program that allows users to obtain discounts and additional shares for free.
The house being raffled is located in Vera Playa, Almería, located just a few minutes from the beach. It has all the comforts to enjoy a family or couple vacation, with two bedrooms, two terraces, a swimming pool and a garage. The property is located in a private urbanization, just a few minutes walk from shops, restaurants and outdoor leisure activities.
Administrative expenses covered
The numbers can be purchased online from anywhere in the world through the company’s website with the only requirement of being of legal age. The buyer must register on the platform and request the number of shares they want with a maximum of 1,000 per person. The sale will be open until March 22, 2021, the date on which the number sale process will be closed. Unlike other platforms that make it possible to carry out real estate raffles, Sesortea guarantees the winner to cover most of the taxes derived from a housing transfer operation. It assumes the administrative expenses (notary, registration, etc.) up to a total of € 5,000 and the entire Patrimonial Transfer Tax (TPO) that varies according to the autonomous community in which the property is located.
Finally, and in relation to the capital increase in the winner’s personal income tax, Sesortea covers the winner up to a total of € 20,000. Due to the size of the draw organized by the company (125,800 entries), participants will be more likely to win than with other traditional lottery models, such as the Quiniela, the Primitiva, the Bonoloto, the ONCE Coupon or Euromillions *.
Although in Spain we are still surprised to hear about the house raffle, in Europe it is already an increasingly common practice. And in our country this type of raffle has been regulated since 2011 by the Ministry of Finance and the Directorate General for the Regulation of Gambling, responsible for analyzing each property thoroughly before authorizing the raffle. Unlike other countries, the supervision of these bodies guarantees the buyer the maximum legal guarantees, the execution of the raffle and the delivery of the home.
