No-nonsense estate agent Andrew Winter takes homeowners to task as they struggle with the nation's hard-to-sell homes, from listed buildings to ex-council houses. And in this series he's reprimanding the estate agents as well as the homeowners. Marco Jerrentrup and Sally Partridge's open-plan one-bedroom garden flat in Islington, north London was perfect for them before they had kids.

But now they're a family of four, their flat is bursting at the seams. They're desperate to move but after nine months on the market, no one wants to stump up £305,000. When Andrew says they're overpriced, Marco tells him he's 'on another planet,' while their agent admits she suggested a price drop but they wouldn't listen.

C4 8PM Selling Houses

Andrew Winter offers advice to a family of four who are desperately trying to sell their open-plan one-bedroom flat in Islington so they can move somewhere with more room. After nine months on the market it would appear the sticking point could be the price of £305,000, but the vendors are reluctance to accept any less

This week's couple are a prime example of the truism that almost NO-ONE IS ACTUALLY BETTER OFF IN A HOUSE PRICE BOOM.

Sure, your bedsit may have increased to £250k, but no doubt the house you are looking to trade up to has increased by much much more.

MOST PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY BETTER OFF WITH LOW, STABLE HOUSE PRICES.

Why can't people get it into their thick heads that if you have to accept a lower offer for your place you negotiate a similar discount on your next place and, if you get the same percentage reduction, you are UP. How does £105K to £290K in 5 years seem like a bad deal? I feel sorry for their kids.

At last, a property programme really made for the FTB. Now we can sit back with our glasses of wine and laugh at the initial blatent DENIAL and eventual REALITY CHEQUE of home owners scrambling to sell, sell, sell. Priceless. :D:P:huh:;)

I liked the bit at the end.. "are you stuck with a property? Do you want to be in the next series?" How long does it take to make a series, and what does this say about how long people's homes are sticking for? B)

It must be pretty recent, the flat is still on the web as under offer.

I wonder if the "good buyer" that Gina mentioned was a BTL landlord as it must be someone who deals in property / makes a few transactions to be viewed as a "good buyer"

Here are the details

Liverpool Road, London, N1
