With a three-hour commute to Dad’s new job (and to the family’s temporary crash pad in the neighbourhood), the Kinchleas are desperate to sell their three-bedroom, Victorian mid-terrace home in Bow, East London… But after ten months on the market, only ten viewings, and not a single offer, they fear their upside-down lifestyle may be permanent. The home features a great location and plenty of period charm. But its phantom fourth bedroom, cluttered kitchen, over-personalized bedrooms, and overall shabby interiors are turning potential buyers off. Even a £40,000 price cut hasn’t made a difference.
Enter property experts John Rennie and Sofie Allsopp. They promise to revitalize the home’s prospects. And, as John takes the agent to task over some misleading marketing materials, Sofie neutralizes the interiors, and highlights the home’s original charm.
