Series 3 · Episode 4
Ian and Jenny are selling the home they’ve lived in for 35 years to fund their retirement. It’s a five bedroom Californian Bungalow located 200 hundred metres from Maroubra Beach and has been on the market for nine months with an asking price of 1.5 million. Very ambitious, given its dated mismatched interior. Young urban professionals, the most likely buyers, are looking for something smarter than this. After Andrew’s straight talking visit, Ian and Jenny agree to part with $25,000 to modernise the place for sale. The money stretches a long way inside and out and the home blossoms into a lighter, brighter, more stylish property. With the asking price still a sticking point between the agents and the owners, the house is re-launched on the market at auction with a nervous Ian and Jenny anxious to see if they will get the price they need.
