They're Back!

'Kirstie and Phil will be back on Monday, June 25th with an all-new series. This time each episode will be an hour long, so there'll be more thrills and spills than ever before as househunters visit location after location after location...'

The end of the series should be late september (although I expect most of it has been filmed already). I hope by then we have 'THE CRASH' well and truly accepted by the MSM & the LLL team end up looking like a bunch of c****s.

God I hate them.

checked out the section on Leeds, described as one of the Top Ten Property Hospots, is includes the following:

"Until recently, rising property prices meant that investors made a good profit when buying off plan at lower pre-construction costs, but with the undeniable housing plateau versus a market flooded with new builds there is a risk that your home could be worth less than the original agreed sale price… "

Their Ireland episode is gonna be a laugh riot. May even have footage of the people selling the property on their hands and knee's begging them to take it off their hands.

This is (mostly) property porn of the highest order.

Episode 2 - Faint-hearted first-time buyers Helen and Paul have lost three houses in the last 12 months, and want different things: Paul wants a renovation project but Helen wants a ready-made home...

Their budget? Well the properties they're being (been) shown are £360k to £450k.

Edit: Errr.... ignore that the Episode information doesn't tie up. The houses are all in Jersey.

Whats wrong with this prog?

All they do is suggest places for people to live and try to explain to ol' joe public that their 100k budget isnt going to get them a 19 bedroom mansion with swimming pool and tennis courts. Explaining the concept of "compromise" seems like a good thing to me.

If nothing else, it keeps the women happy whilst the rest of us head off for a pint ;)!

Episode 7: Yorkshire

Lara and Roger Griffiths have won £1,800,000 on the lottery, but with a budget set at £650,000, how will they react when they see that they won't necessarily be able to afford a mansion?

Apparently it didn't turn out that well, for his at least.

A lottery winner who won a jackpot of £1.8million has revealed that he ended up wasting his winnings and now has just £7 in the bank.

Roger Griffiths spent his prize on luxury cars, business deals and reuniting the band he was in as a teenager.

At one point, he earned £340 in interest every day, but a series of ill-advised deals drained him of all his cash.

They bought a new home for £670,000, spent £20,000 per year on school fees for their children, and took holidays in sunny destinations like Florida and Dubai.

But it started to go wrong when the couple ploughed £200,000 into a beauty salon in Boston Spa, West Yorkshire.

They had hoped that the income from the business would allow them to finance their high-rolling lifestyle on a permanent basis, but the financial crisis and recession hit them hard.

The salon lost £4,000 a month, but because the Griffiths had borrowed against the value of their home they felt they had to keep it going.

In 2010, their house was consumed by a house fire, which proved to be the last straw for their 14-year marriage.

Mr Griffiths moved in to a house in Harrogate which was supposed to be an investment, and had to sell off most of his possessions to repay his debts.

Thank you my friend for sharing that marvellous bedtime story - I will sleep a little warmer in my bed tonight.

XYY

I see one of the comments admonishing them for their stupidity says that they should have gone into BTL!

The 25K he flushed down the toilet on his band would have helped purchase one of a series of buy-to-let properties. If he had bought some houses or flats to rent out, he could have lived very comfortably for the rest of his life. Not a jet-set lifestyle, but definitely a life of luxury. He could easily have watched his net worth grow by reinvesting the rent money and increasing his property portfolio.
