Jeanette Forrester really enjoyed her McDonalds, even more than usual, when she opened it to find the winning sticker in their Best Chance Monopoly nationwide promotion, bringing her £300,000 to spend on a new home.

FindaProperty.com partnered McDonald’s in the promotion which ran for six weeks. Sarah Boorman, Marketing Director of FindaProperty.com said; “We are delighted to have a winner. It’s fantastic to be able to help Mrs Forrester and her family find their dream home. It’s equally pleasing to present one of our member agents with a new sale.

Promotions such as the McDonald’s Best Chance Monopoly are an essential element in attracting more home buyers and renters to our sites, as well as landlords and vendors looking to put their properties onto the market. This is another example of our long-term brand investment into FindaProperty.”

Jeanette Forrester and her husband Simon went to a local estate agent Nock Deighton to assist in purchasing a spacious four bedroom house in Priorslee, Shropshire. Mrs Forrester said, “Being mortgage free will give us real peace of mind. When I found the winning sticker we couldn’t believe our luck – it’s what dreams are made of. We were collecting the Monopoly stickers for fun – I didn’t think in a million years we’d actually win anything.”

Equally pleased was James Carlon, Sales Manager of Nock Deighton in Telford. “I was absolutely delighted to find a new home for the Forrester’s. Finding a buyer in today’s market with the means to purchase without needing any finance is a real rarity. Discovering that we were working on behalf of the McDonald’s Best Chance Monopoly campaign winner came as a very pleasant surprise!” FindaProperty.com says that 57 per cent of agents believed the promotion added value by raising consumer awareness of the property site providing the prize. Enquiries to agents during the campaign increased by 3.9 per cent and brand awareness amongst home searchers rose 27 per cent following the McDonald’s promotional activity, according to independent analysis by BMRB.
