Home-Hunters Wanted For New Itv1 Property Programme

Recommended Posts

ITV1 are looking for home hunters to take part in Drive to Buy, a unique and exciting new property programme.

• ARE YOU LOOKING TO BUY YOUR IDEAL HOME NOW?

• ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A ONCE IN A LIFETIME BUYING OPPORTUNITY?

• CAN YOU OUTWIT RIVAL BUYERS TO BAG YOUR DREAM PROPERTY?

Drive to Buy will give four pairs of home hunters the exclusive opportunity to view three properties on the market that fulfil their dream criteria. Travelling from property to property on the Drive to Buy bus, the home hunters are all looking for similar properties at similar prices. They can bid on as many properties as they like, but there’s a catch – offers can only be made immediately after viewing the property. Once the Drive to Buy bus drives away the property is ‘off the market’.

This is the first property programme of its kind that brings house hunters face-to-face with their home buying rivals in a nail biting game of property poker.

If you are a home hunter in a position to buy a property in August - October 2011 and are interested in taking part in this original programme then please contact Renegade Pictures for further information and an application form - drivetobuy@renegadepictures.co.uk / 020 7449 3298.

Great idea - bring back bidding wars!

Er, have you any idea what this site is about?

Hint: unlike the Express, in the context of house prices crashing we tend not to use words like 'gloom' or 'misery'.

Nah, let's all sign up, with any luck there'll be enough of us for no-one to offer more than a tiny fraction of the asking price. That'll make great TV.

Thanks for the heads up on the HPC Christmas car-crash telly season. Even by the sanctified standards of pwoperdee porn, this idea beggars belief.

Sounds great, push people into making the biggest financial decision of their lives in a instant.

I hope we get to revisit the unhappy winning couples in drive to buy revisited when they are desperate to move but stuck in negative equity.

Drive to buy? More like a drive by!

So you want people to commit to a multiple salary loan to buy the most expensive thing they'll ever buy in an instant after only looking at three places?

All this for the sake of a TV show, please tell me all the properties are for sale buy people who 'have' to sell ....

"Mr and Mrs Broke need to sell their house for £150k, but when a local EA only said it was worth £120k they knew they'd struggle to clear their £140k mortgage. They've now cleaned the house, bought some twigs and baked some bread. With no-one still stupid enough to buy it, they've contacted ITV to find some idiots who think property is still a great investment. Watch as we invite three ready to move buyers over to see what they'd offer"

That might work :)

Not to mention idiots who'll do anything to get on telly.

Always plenty of those, alas.

Hahaha this is just a hilarious concecpt. So after i've viewed the property I have to make an offer there and then without knowing if the other properties are better/worse?

What does 'in a position to buy' mean? I have a couple of hundred pounds spare which I would be willing to put down on a house in an instant but that would be my highest offer, any higher and i'm out.

The only people who would sign up to this are the financial illtiterate and the stupid. Oh wait...
