Snatch Yourself a Free Housing Deposit!

Friday, 28 July 2017 10:09

Would you like to win a house deposit worth up to £25,000? 

Augmented reality mobile app Snatch has offered a whopping £18m worth of prizes since its launch earlier this year. This summer they could be sending you the money you need to secure your own home. One lucky Snatcher will be able to win this incredible prize and not have to worry about securing their first deposit. 

All you need to do is a treasure hunt. On July 20th, thousands of parcels containing virtual keys were released into the game. All you need to do is collect three of these keys to be shortlisted for the big prize, which will also include sessions with a mortgage consultant. 

After conducting a survey of their users, Snatch discovered that 34% of millennials feel they’ll need to borrow money from their parents for a future deposit, while 19% don’t believe they’ll ever be able to afford their own home. These findings are much less positive than those found by RBS in their Millennials Home Buying Survey of 2015, which really epitomizes how rapidly the housing market has changed – causing great anxiety amongst millennials. How amazing would it be to not have to rely on your parents for help buying your first place? Win Snatch’s prize, and that’ll be a reality. 

Over the summer, Snatch is going to be releasing more and more prizes, each aimed at assisting with challenges mentioned by existing Snatch users and supporting them in every way possible. So there’s really no reason to wait. Get playing and see what you can snatch!
