I like Andrew Winter, he is brutal and honest with his clients and on a couple of occassions he has hit the nail on the head. People have asked for his help but really didn't want to sell, they just wanted the makeover. Andrew knew this to be the case after they got their makeover done, by refusing to sell because they felt their house was worth more.
Most times when selling you have to do all the jobs you haven't finished in order just to get the best price for your home. Just because you finish those things shouldn't mean you get more for your house. It means you finally finished all those jobs and your house is now ready for resale.

My home is on the outskirts of Surfers Paradise in a million dollar housing area but I have tried to sell my very large duplex four times with no success. It is unusual in that the property is two duplexes one on top of the other; not side by side. On development land for three $900 villas. Inside my duplex is very saleable with three oversize bedrooms and a terrific backyard but the front of the property is "ugly". I am begging you to come and help me, please.

I need help. I have a small fibro house on a large block of land in the inner city of Sydney. The area has become really popular but I seem unable to sell the house. I have been trying the house close to two years now, I've reluctently reduced the price quite a lot but still no luck. Developers want the land cheap and house hunters want the house cheap because it's small and unrenovated. No one seems to see it as a whole. I think it's quaint and many people have commented on how sweet it is. I just don't know what the problem is. Please help so much depends on me selling and for a good price to cover all my debts. If I can't sell I'll have no choice but to borrow more money and add an extra bedroom to let it at all as it's only a one bedroom house. I need to some income from the property as I have a mortgage no to mention the land tax and other rates. Would appreciate your help. Thank you Francesca Bayley

Have you thought about why it is not selling? Is the price you seek comparable with other unrenovated properties (1BR) on similar sized blocks? Perhaps there is a way to sell to cover your debts and agree to receive a % of any profit that is made, after redevelopment,at an agreed time. With the market being uncertain (down), people may not be willing to pay a premium price for a property that has a small rental return and a lot to be spent to upgrade it.

We are at a point where we want to sell but we will lose to much to when buyers walk to the front door and see our cracks is there a cheaper option to fix or is underpinning our only choice ?? We have tried Uretek but it was too vbigger job for them !!

I'm addicted to the show and find Andrew very believable. I would love to know what do I have to do to get help with my home. I'm 78 and on my own. I'm desperate to sell to enable me to give my 90+ year old husband half for him to move on. I tried with an agent once, but it didn't sell. It's such a pretty home but needs a little makeover. Help! help! help! help!
