Selling Houses Australia

Episode Guide

Reservoir, VIC

Series 8 · Episode 6

The Gentile’s are your typical close-knit Italian family. They all live in the Melbourne suburb of Reservoir and each week gather for dinner at the old family home. Charlie built the sprawling 4-bedder with his own hands and it was a perfect place to raise the kids. However now they’ve flown the nest and he and wife Sylvia want to sell up and use the money to fund their retirement. Tragically, they can’t afford to buy in their beloved suburb, but a good sales price will mean they can still buy close to family. The trouble is, the house has the street appeal of a loading dock and an interior straight from the 70’s making it a tough challenge!

Glad to hear Charlie and Silvia sold. I think I would have tried to paint over the oil stain on the garage floor. Was the first thing I saw. Was a really great makeover. Congrats Charlie and Shayna.

Charlie and Silvia are loving couple, they remind me of my parents also Italian. I was so interested in knowing what the outcome was. The house sold for $650000 in May 2015. sold by Ray White Real Estate. I hope the continue love and warmth they had in their old house flows on to the new one. Tantiauguri??
