COMPETITION: List with us and win the trip of a lifetime

sell home competition

We know you deserve a holiday this year – especially if you’re selling your home.

That’s why, when you list your property for sale with us before the end of July, you’ll go into the draw to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip for two to either Santorini or the Maldives.

Santorini is one of the most desirable locations in the world right now, with its unmistakable white-washed buildings stacked upon soaring cliffs. The most glamorous of the Greek Islands, it’s renowned for its romantic sunsets, intriguing history and volcanic sand beaches.

The Maldives are equally stunning and have long been the luxurious destination of choice for the discerning holiday-maker. With white sand beaches and crystal clear seas, they boast a breath-taking underwater world of coral reefs and marine life.

Both destinations offer exclusivity, fantastic weather and beautiful scenery. And that’s why we’ve chosen them as the potential prizes for two very lucky people (and their travel companions) who decide to list with us in the next couple of months.

All you have to do is head to this page and fill out the form to show your interest in listing with us.

After that, a sales consultant from your local Harcourts office will be in touch either by email or phone. They’ll ask to set up a time for a free appraisal so they can assess your property and tell you what it’s worth. At this stage, you’re under no obligation to go ahead with the listing or sale. We’ll give you all the information you need about the current market, your home and the sales process so you can make an informed decision. If you then decide to go ahead and list with us, that’s when you’ll be entered into the competition.
