Martin Roberts "puts Money Where Mouth Is", Bbc1 Now

Recommended Posts

.. first thing you've already missed:

1 ) rejected UK out of hand;

2 ) says on phone : "so definately not france or spain."

Hmmmm, now that's a line we don't often hear from these luvvies property experts.

Don't you mean "Che?" ( he's in Italy - earthquake zone ;) )

edit - apologies to early thread viewers - I meant Martin Roberts - Homes Under the Hammer - not Lewis.

Anyway, in case you are not aware of this new series - "Put your money where your mouth is" - essentially all the "experts" from the antique dealers to the car-booters to, yes, the property developers, have decided to take part in a series where they take their own advice. The idea is to turn a profit - of course.

In the antique dealers progs, two participants have competed against each other to make the biggest profit. The proceeds go to CHARITY, so unless they fancy boosting the bottom line from their own pockets ( which I would not rule out ), profits have to be real. The contest usually takes place over a month and the Beeb provide the funds.

HOWEVER, in this show, Martin is NOT competeing with any other "expert" AND he said he'd arranged a mortgage!!! Also he said he's given himself 3 months. Nevertheless, this seems to be better viewing than the usual tosh, but I am prepared to be disappointed (ie paper profit instead of realised cash). On til 12:15

This is actually pretty interesting viewing. Because it's his money he' :

a ) more thorough;

b ) consequently more cautious.

... and he's decided to go ahead ... but there is only 7 mins left to close this show, so how he's gonna realise the dough, god knows ...

He just bought the place (allegedly) , and looks like he's got 18 months building ahead of him.
