Selling Houses Australia

Reno Recap: Pymble, NSW

This couple is desperate to sell up and move on... but they just can't shake their beloved son.

Charles and Dale have lived in their five-bedroom, three-bathroom Pymble home for 32 years and raised their four children there. But, with the size of the property and maintenance, it's time to downsize.

The pair are trying to do that, but there's just one little problem standing in their way - their son, Heath. The youngest of the clan, he is 37-years-old, and is still at home! He has it way too good, getting his meals cooked for him and a laundry service without paying rent.

Charles and Dale love him to bits... but he just won't take the subtle and not-so-subtle hints to leave the family home. They're now going to the extreme length of moving to an inconvenient location on Sydney's northern beaches, where he can’t catch the train to work in the city everyday. 

They’ve had the house on the market for over a year at an asking price of 2.4 million, which, according to their agent is not unrealistic given the size of the property. Despite a few offers at the low end of 2 million, Charles and Dale are hanging out for more. Will the team be able to get them the price they desire?

The verdict

The renovation was truly spectacular, and managed to attract an offer of 2.75 million. However, Charles and Dale were confident they could get more, preferring to hold on to their home for the time being.

Looks like the owners don’t intend to sell .. as they refused a very reasonable offer
