First-home buyer Grant Ebbers does not have a lot of faith in his friends. Which is why it took more than one phone call to convince him he had won a cool $100,000 in cash for simply buying a new home.
Grant, who is a senior school health and PE teacher at Kingston State College, was the lucky winner of CFMG Capital’s $100,000 Jumpstart Your Life competition which was drawn last week. His name was drawn from numerous entrants.
Grant went into the draw after purchasing a house and land package at CFMG Capital’s Middleton Park project at Park Ridge through Glenvill Homes.
While the money is safely ensconced in his bank account, it did initially take a while for him to accept that he wasn’t being stitched-up by his friends.
“I got a call from the salesperson at Glenvill to call him back urgently,” he said. “I was worried something had gone wrong with the block but once he told me I had won the $100,000 I was thrilled, but not entirely convinced.”
“I wasn’t 100% sure it was true so I rang the Middleton Park office and asked them if it was true. It has been a great bonus and I am very thankful.”
After being presented with the windfall last week he is already making plans on how to spend it including putting a chunk straight on to his mortgage, adding some new features to his home (shed, air conditioner and solar panels) and buying a new car and some furniture.
Construction on his house is due to commence in November and he will move into the new home in March or April next year.
CFMG Capital launched the Jumpstart Your Life campaign in June offering a $100,000 cash rebate to a lucky buyer at one of its three projects in the Logan growth corridor.
The three projects – Birchwood Estate and Solander Estate at Park Ridge and Middleton Park at Logan Reserve – are located in the heart of the high-growth Logan corridor which has become a mecca for first home buyers looking for homesites at affordable prices.
CFMG Capital General Manager Andrew Thomson congratulated Grant on his win.
“We are thrilled it has gone to a hard working local and wish Grant all the best in his future at Middleton Park,” he said.
