We didn't think the housing market was this bad: Now, you can get a $4.3 million mansion in California for just $175. And a little bit of luck.
An Oakland non-profit group is raffling off a 9,000-square-foot dream house in Oakland Hills. The description reads like a realtor's dream: views of five bridges, seven bedrooms and seven full baths, a home theater, a fitness room and more. Raffle tickets start at two for $175.
The Neighorhood House of North Richmond is holding the raffle, and proceeds benefit a number of community-based programs, including a senior center, youth violence prevention and youth mentoring projects, residential drug and alcohol treatment.
The odds of waking up in your own mansion are long. A total of 110,000 raffle tickets will be sold before the Oct. 26 drawing. But we can dream.
