Selling Houses Australia
No-nonsense property expert Andrew Winter brings his popular UK and European series to Australia to show the Aussies how to maximize their profits and achieve a quick sale on one of life’s biggest investments. Today’s unpredictable housing market is not for the faint of heart. Stressed owners whose properties have been stuck on the market for months are desperate for a sale and unable to comprehend why no one wants to buy their home. Winter brings all the parties together to figure out problems of pricing, presentation and communication. After the home makeover, he helps his Australian clients strategise how to bring potential buyers closer to the sale.
27 Jan 02 Feb: Episode 9 – Cobbitty – New South Wales
Maree is a mother of three grown boys who lost her husband 14 years ago before buying a house on half an acre at Cobbitty, an outer western Sydney suburb. It’s a character filled old weatherboard which needs a lot of work to make it market ready. The team suspect it hasn’t been sold because there’s market demand for new and modern these days – so the SHA team are here to save the day, and are especially welcome as Maree has already bought elsewhere and is now desperate for a sale.
Episode 10 – Oxenford – Queensland
Stevie Adams is a real estate agent and still can’t work out why her three bedroom townhouse isn’t selling. The property is located in Oxenford near the Gold Coast theme parks – a place where homes usually sell within 30 days, but the unit she shares with boyfriend Wayne has been on the market for six months without a nibble. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact she’s been there for seven years and hasn’t done much in the way of repairs and enhancements.
Episode 11 – Hindmarsh Island – South Australia
Steven and Theresa own a dated six bedroom waterfront home on Hindmarsh Island near Adelaide. It’s been on the market three years with three agents. The couple have lowered the price from $680,000 to $570,00 but can’t really go any lower as they need to relocate to Adelaide for health reasons. In come the SHA team…
Episode 12 – Casula – New South Wales
This week the SHA look at an incredibly dated 1970s four bed home on an elevated block with a steep driveway. The owners are a lovely family with two kids and they’re preparing to downsize. While the family are at a bit of a loss as to why it’s not selling, the SHA can see that the state of the place is scaring off potential buyers. Hopefully the family will lower their expectations, because even as stands they’re asking for $100,000 over the suburb average.
Episode 13 – Middle Ridge – Queensland
Three siblings, Amanda, Paul and David, are selling their five bedroom family home on a bushy 12 acres near Toowoomba. They’ve decided to do so after their doctor parents were tragically killed in the MH 17 plane crash over Ukraine in July 2014. While the place looks pretty shabby, the SHA are here to help. And the family have generously offered to donate a portion of the profits to Medecins sans Frontieres.
