    This popped up online earlier. I've not taken part but its interesing the website differs to the news articles about whether it would sell easily.

    Strangely, I can't actually work out what answer to the question is.

    Never mind...hopefully someone actually does win it.

    Well, a bit of Google detective work found the house on right move, and it was first listed on 28 Mar 2002. It has currently been removed by the agent. I guess 2002 is the correct answer, but is also possible that it was bought as a new build from the contractors in 2001 and then resold in 2000, but I can't find any proof of that ;)

    I've seen this done before and I think the competition got cancelled in the end because they didn't have enough entry money to cover the cost of the house. As the house is valued at over £300K they are going to need a lot of £2 entries.

    I think its because the market is starting to reduce. People are thinking it is a good way to get over market value for a house.

    But truthfully, home many of these competitions actually end up with the house being 'won' or just people (hopefully) getting the cash promised.
