Episode Guide

Mitcham

Series 3 · Episode 9

Jacqui and Brian were asking $630,000 for their two story, four bedroom weatherboard home in Mitcham, half an hour east of Melbourne. It was on the market for fi ve months without an agent, just listed on a ‘for sale by owner’ website, where they only received one buyer enquiry and no inspections, so they dropped the price to $580,000. They then did some work painting the outside and certain rooms inside and re-listed it with new photos online which produced two inspections… but still no offers. Despite their efforts, the house remains dated looking and there is still heaps of work to do. So with Andrew as motivator they agree to spend some more money on the property. With a makeover budget of around $15,000 it’s hoped a grand old home will re-emerge and sell quickly with or without an agent.

Hi Shaynna. loved the makeover and hoping you can advise me where to purchase the Timber bed & oval bedside tables in one of the bedrooms as well as the lounge at the end of he bed.

I thought the renovation looked fantastic. I am also trying to chase up the beech coloured curved bedside tables used in the master bedroom of this project - can't locate them anywhere and am not keen to settle for anything less on my current project! Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks.

Hi 'Rybald'
they were from a company called blinds online- go to their website and they have a calculator online for costs depending on the size of your window. Good Quality to!

This series just gets better and better...so disappointed that there is only one episode to go.

Loved this makeover, everyone did a fantastic job and I felt that it was a great result for the couple overall. Personally I think I would have taken it to auction and hopefully bumped the price up more. Such a unique house and I loved the size of it!

Can't see how it achieved this price without bathroom renovated.

Love it! Desperate to know what the white bedside tables are in the massive downstairs room - they'd be perfect for my place!
