Housesimple is now in Nottingham…. And you can sell your home for free!

To celebrate we are giving away cash prizes in a 12-hour Nottingham scavenger hunt. 

We’ve hidden special competition ‘For Sale’ mini-boards around Nottingham in locations that have something to do with ‘free’. 

From 7 am on Saturday 11 January 2020, we’ll be posting clues on our Instagram account - @housesimpleproperties.

Follow the clues, find the mini-boards, and post a selfie of the mini-board to Instagram using #housesimplehunt to win!

Everyone who posts a selfie of the competition mini-board with #housesimplehunt will be entered into a draw to win the cash prize. 

Good luck!

About the competition

To celebrate the launch of our free service in Nottingham, we've decided to give away 8 cash prizes (1x £250; 2x £200; 2x £100; 3x £50).

Simply follow the clues we publish on our Instagram account - @Housesimpleproperties - to find special Housesimple miniature ‘for sale’ mini-boards we’ve hidden around Nottingham in locations to do with ‘free’.

Competition Clues

We’ll be posting the latest clues here throughout the day as well:

Clue #1

9am Saturday - If you wanna win the cash, you'd better get to class quick!

Clue #2

10am Saturday - No-one does free better than students. 'Hop' over and find a prize en route.

Clue #3

11am Saturday - You could call this close-up of our next prize location a work of art!

Clue #4

12 noon Saturday - This well know musical + a burger shack = ?

Clue #5

1pm Saturday - You don't have to leave the city to find a grand hall in the countryside. "Wool" you figure it out?

Clue #6

2pm Saturday - Free by name but not by nature. Don't break the law trying to find this board or these guys might be coming for you.

Clue #7

3pm Saturday - Try not to make an 'exhibition' of yourself when you take a selfie here.

Clue #8
