Series 5 · Episode 10
Alexis and Kylie are paying the price of an impulsive decision. A year ago they bought a house in Montmorency, Melbourne, thinking they would fix the place up and live there happily ever after. But work pressures meant Alexis couldn’t cope with the thought of renovating, and things got so bad she quit her job and the couple decided to move to Brisbane to start afresh. They thought their Montmorency home would sell in a flash, and were so confident they took out a loan for $555,000 to buy a new house in Brisbane. With Alexis now back at Uni and Kylie the sole breadwinner, the girls are struggling to make ends meet. Things are so bad, in just a few months they will be in arrears on the mortgage and the bank could take their Brisbane home. To add even more stress, Alexis is expecting twins, so they desperately need this sale.
