I notice on google street view the painted house has again got cars and rubbish back.
I guess he didn't sell and back to his old ways.

A lot of people would have just run away from this challenge, but you three did it with lots of dignity with Roy who was obviously overwhelmed by his predicament. Not even Andrew could give his usual sarcastic comments...well done!!

I notice the usual discussion about the cost of renovation was not held on this ep - who paid for the renovation?

My partner and I have just finished watching this episode of your program and cannot thank you and your team enough for the sensitive way you and your team dealt with this situation, and the result that followed. Needless to say Roy wanted a higher selling price once his mess of a house became a home - human nature I guess.

We both thank you for your professionalism and careful handling of the situation. We are both avid viewers of the program, mainly because of your sense of humour, which is hard to find in this day and age - that's why we both voted for you and Selling Houses in the Astra awards.

We really enjoy the program with you and the team.
