Indonesian property portal Rumah123.com, owned and operated by the iProperty Group Limited, announced it was launching its ‘Rebutan Rumah Gratis’ campaign back in May. The contest quickly became the biggest ever online and social media campaign to be organized by a property portal in Indonesia, promising one lucky Indonesian citizen the chance to win a free house worth over 500 million Rupiah in Jakarta.
Over 70,000 people participated in the contest, and this past weekend 123 Indonesians from all walks of life were hosted by Rumah123.com, where they awaited to find out which one of them would be the proud owner of a brand new house in one of the most popular housing areas in Jakarta.
The panel of judges were:
- Property expert from Indonesia’s Property Watch (IPW) – Ali
- Miss Indonesia 2008 – Zivanna Letisha Siregar
- Tribunnews.com journalist – Choirul Arifin
- Tempo.co.id journalist – Burhan Solihin
- Prominent blogger – Edy Prayitno
Mona Noviyanti from Jakarta South, was declared the official winner of the home valued at RP 500 million in elite Bumi Serpong Damai (BSD), South Tangerang, Banten, having collected a total of 84 points and outranked the other 122 contestants.
“This is totally unexpected. I am still in disbelief! My family members told me not to be disappointed if I don’t win. It is truly a blessing and God had answered the prayer that my husband and I have prayed for,” said Mona Noviyanti.
