The latest RSL draw triples the excitement of a home lottery win by offering you the chance to walk away with three luxurious apartments at once. Each one comes complete with a lavish design package and top of the line furnishings and electricals. If you want to feel like a mogul, there’s no better way to do it than by picking up the keys to your new apartments in Melbourne, Sydney and Airlie Beach.

The beauty of winning multiple properties is that you can pick and choose where you want to live – and how much rental income you’d like to receive. The approximate combined return on renting out the three apartments is just over $126,000 a year and given their locations, that figure is only likely to rise. This fantastic first prize package is worth over $2.7 million and comes with terrific investment and income potential. Live in one home and rent out the other two or sell all three and take your millions to the bank.

The apartment in Melbourne is a stylish one-bedroom located in Southbank, close to the city’s cultural precinct. You’ll enjoy great views of the Melbourne skyline and be within minutes of the art galleries, shops and cafes of St. Kilda Road.

The Sydney apartment lets you feel like you’re living in a resort right in the middle of the country’s biggest city. The complex has three pools, groomed gardens and all the amenities you’d expect from a luxurious residential development.

The third home is in Airlie Beach in the heart of the Whitsundays. Living alongside the Coral Sea is like being on a permanent tropical vacation and you’ll be able to make the most of all the attractions and natural wonders that draw visitors from around the globe to this very special part of the country.

A Home in Southbank

This one-bedroom apartment is in CityView Tower 2, right in the heart of Melbourne’s Arts Precinct. You’ll be able to stroll the riverside promenade along the Yarra, stop for a craft beer, and take in any number special exhibitions, plays and live performances.

The apartment is functional, stylish, and loaded with great appliances and beautifully textured furnishings. The spacious balconies look out over the city and you’ll be only a couple of kilometres from the CBD. Keep the apartment as your retreat in the city or rent it out for an estimated income of around $27,500 a year.

Explore the marvels of the Great Barrier Reef, walk through the pristine rainforests, and spend a lifetime exploring all 74 islands that make up the Whitsundays.

Your new home is spread over two levels of luxurious comfort in the Elementa residential complex. The entry level of the apartment is divided between an open concept kitchen, dining and lounge area, and a large master bedroom. If you think it’s hard to get worked up about a bathroom, wait until you see the master ensuite! Timbered countertops, mirrored walls and a full walk-in shower are just a backdrop to the gorgeous Picasso stone tub and matching sink.

21 November 2018: The draw will take place at 10:00 am at Anzac House, 283 St Pauls Terrace, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006.

A Permanent Income

Choosing to rent out the three apartments could net you an income that will allow you to retire early, work part-time, or do something entirely different with your life. That’s because the estimated total annual income from the three apartments is in excess of $126,000. If you decide to live in one of the homes and rent out the other two, you can still expect to receive between $77,000 and $100,000 a year depending on which one you choose for yourself.

All three homes are in hot real estate markets and if you decide to sell you’ll be a multi-millionaire. Hanging on for a few more years may add to your profits but selling now could launch the lifestyle you’ve been waiting for. If you’ve got the winning ticket on November 21st, be prepared for some tough decisions!
