It’s no secret that home values in and around Coeur d’Alene are climbing, and if you’re in the market you have to act fast once a new home hits the market. If you’ve struck out on the last couple homes you’ve bid on, why not try a new strategy. Someone will be moving into a brand new Greenstone home and all it will cost them is $100.

The North Idaho College Really Big Raffle is now in its 25th year, and the Grand Prize winner won’t be disappointed. The lucky ticket holder will receive a new 2,000-plus square-foot home in Greenstone’s newest Post Falls development, North Place. The open concept home includes a chef’s kitchen and vaulted great room, quartz countertops, stainless appliances, eco-friendly flooring, a three-car garage and the list goes on.

Tickets for the Really Big Raffle are currently being sold for $100 each with a maximum of 5,500 available for purchase. All proceeds through the Really Big Raffle support charitable programs through the North Idaho College Foundation.

Even if you aren’t the grand prize winner, there are pretty incredible consolation prizes including checks of $20,000, $10,000, $3,500 and $2,000. The drawing will be held on July 18 and though you need not be present to win the big-ticket items you will want to show up as 25 additional gift cards will be given out at the drawing but only to ticket holders who are present.

You can purchase your ticket at NIC’s main campus and Workforce Training Center, area Super 1 Foods, Stein’s Family Foods, Post Falls Yoke’s, Buck Knives and BMC. If you would like to see the home, there are open houses scheduled from noon to 4pm on June 3 and 17 at 551 E Penrose in Post Falls. Good luck!
