Young Penrith Mum wins $10,000 in the IMB Bank Your House competition

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Australians have a major interest in real estate – everything from owning their own house to property investment, renovating and design.

And IMB Bank’s recent advertorial series, Your House, was a resounding success, both on television and online with lots of interest in all our tips and trends to help make the entire process easier.

As part of Your House, we also ran a Facebook competition and 27-year-old Penrith mum, Hailey McFarlane was the lucky winner of $10,000.

With two children under five and a wedding on the horizon, the money will come in handy.

“We were so happy to win. We couldn’t really decide what to do with it so we will use a little bit for the wedding but the majority will be left in a term deposit with IMB,” Hailey said.

“After we are married, we will start looking to buy our own home so the $10,000 will be a good start for a deposit. We will try and save a bit each week to grow it so, when we are ready, we can talk to IMB about a home loan.”

There were more than 3700 entries in the competition and, just to prove our national obsession with real estate, look at what our entrants told us:

  • 130 are looking at selling
  • 781 are interested in maximising space and decorating
  • 352 are looking to buy a new house
  • 876 are looking to buy their first home
  • 1209 are interesting in renovating
