How about a Channel 5 series investigating how smirking City tw@ts like these three get away with fleecing the general public year after year?

Does anyone else remember Sarah Beeny (probably at least 10 years ago now) telling someone who'd gone mad doing God knows what to her house,  that given the way prices were shooting up, she'd probably have made the same amount even if she'd done sod all - I.e. saying in not so many words that it wasn't all down to her own cleverness at all?  

Whether C5 will actually include anyone who's made a loss in a very different market, may be worth betting a fiver on. 

She said it regularly on the property ladder series.

Still total porn but with a slight dose of reality and the nonsense of it all compared to homes under the hammer.

This is comedy gold. "Rupa" - a woman who is "project managing" which inolves going to a tile shop, getting them to do the calculations as to how many square feet she needs, then getting shirty about it when she doesn't understand the difference between square feet and square metres. She wants a full kitchen supplying and installing for under 2 grand, and flits from one company to the next trying to get someone who'll work for nowt, and then gets confused about putting together some kitchen units and rings the company to complain that it's "not as easy as she thought it would be". OMG

I have to say I am really enjoying this; so far its bear food.

Nah, it's neither that nor 'property ramping' as one poster above implied. It's not meant to encourage or discourage anyone not already in the business. It's targetted purely at existing LLs, so they can watch the telly, nod with appreciation and keep muttering to themselves that 'the struggle is real'.

Mary obviously didn't have a clue about property development but she does have her head screwed on. Out of the two I knew she would do OK.

Rupa tried to sell her house for 340K - (90K profit / 130K more than she bought it for!) and couldn't (surprise surprise) and is now paying for someone to live in the house! Hilarious.

Yeah, and she's supposed to be "good with negotiation" as she does it for a job. I bet she makes so right cockups at work!

I'm surprised she has a job at all! Where was her house, I missed it. Tried to sell it for an 86k profit, no takes, perhaps she should of priced it to sell. Idiot.

That's greed for ya! In what world is she living in, where a few months flouncing around, p*ssing people off and getting everyone else to do the work for you puts 86K in your back pocket? Nutter.

Loved the whole thing:  watery cement, sqft-sqm conversion, tears, kitchen install, standing on a rake, bearish commentary!

Disappointed with a potential profit, but I am sure that didn't price their own and family's labour into costs, the profits would have been even thinner.

Looking forward to watching Rupa's paper profits evaporate as the February bounce up North fails to materialise.

She said she was 'glad to be back at work'. Has she costed in the X months wages lost while she 'property managed' her renovation?

How can £75K projected profit enable you to retire at 55? Who is going to finance her up to the pension age of 67 (+)?

I don't think she'd actually thought about how much her yearly spend would be. The extent of her thought process was probably something along the lines of "75K is loads innit, I can have about 15 holidays with that".

I need 66m2 of floor tiles!! Is it a spanish villa? :lol:

Then the sales assistant correctly pointed out it was 66 ft2.

Did he then spoil it by converting that as 10 m2 or did I mishear? Still she will have 4m2 left over for spares.

It was like an episode of the Apprentice.

If idiots like rupa can make 86k there ain't much hope for the housing market...

She didn't make any money yet! She's only just convering the mortgage with the rent (£80/month left over). Factor in costs, repairs, tax, etc and she must be making a fairly hefty loss!
