The Million-Dollar Question – Would You Sell If You Won A Prize Home

The prospect of selling a prize home might seem daunting, but for many lucky winners of Prize Homes, opting to sell has proven to be a life-changing decision.

For those fortunate enough to own a million-dollar Prize Home, the allure of turning that windfall into cash is undeniably strong. The possibilities with a substantial cash sum are virtually limitless.

Clearing off your mortgage and embracing a debt-free life, making wise investments for a secure future, assisting struggling family and friends, or even purchasing your dream property closer to home – the choices are abundant.

Regardless of how you choose to utilize the proceeds from selling your prize home, one thing is certain: it will transform your life and potentially impact the lives of others as well.

When you shift your focus from the opulent furnishings and luxurious touches to a more practical perspective, you'll find that Australian Prize Homes, located in booming real estate areas, hold substantial value in the real estate market.

Such confidence in these markets might entice you to contemplate the possibility of selling, provided you're the fortunate winner, of course, and can muster the courage to part with the property.

But how do you navigate the process of selling your Prize Home if you decide to take the plunge?

After the exhilarating moment of winning, Endeavour Foundation will arrange a ‘Handover Day' for you at the property, where you'll officially receive the keys and complete the necessary paperwork to claim ownership. However, you won't be able to list the property immediately. Just like any conventional home purchase, it can take up to twelve weeks (sometimes faster) for the property to be officially transferred into your name after all legal formalities are completed.

This waiting period acts as a sort of ‘cooling off' period, allowing you ample time to consider your options and confirm whether selling aligns with your goals and aspirations.

The good news is, in Australia, lottery winnings are tax-free. You can sell your prize home without worrying about capital gains tax, as long as the selling price doesn't exceed the property's value on the day you won it. However, if you do sell the home for a profit, you might need to pay capital gains tax on the difference. Holding onto the property for over a year could potentially reduce the capital gains tax by 50%. For a comprehensive understanding of the tax implications in your situation, it's advisable to seek professional financial advice.

So, if you were faced with the million-dollar question of living in, renting out, or selling your Prize Home, what would you choose?
