Kirstie took on the first-time buyers, while Phil took on Kerrie and Dave – but Phil had his work cut out for him.
Kerrie and Dave had high expectations for their new home, and the couple had two very different ideals.
The first property the couple were shown was in Carlingcott, six miles from Bath.
It was a £525,000 former chapel, but the couple weren’t very impressed with its inside.
Its huge garden wasn’t a hit as it was overlooked by the neighbours. Dave said: “I don’t have a great feeling about this. The garden is a big negative.”
Phil speaking to Kirstie alone said: “I feel like I’m not a house hunter.”
Kirstie replied: “You’re a marriage counsellor.”
In the end, the couple took a fancy to one home, but the asking price was too high.
Phil said: “I am just delighted to have found something you both like.”
In an episode of Location, Location, Location in January, Kirstie and Phil were in the south of England searching for homes – but Kirstie was less than impressed with her fellow presenter when he announced the wrong asking price for a house in front of the perspective buyers.
Kirstie began her home search for a couple in Shoreham-by-Sea, just a short distance away from Brighton, but the house – with its small garden – wasn’t for them.
The next property she showed the couple was in Cuckfield, a large village and civil parish in Mid Sussex.
This time, while she showed the couple round, she enlisted the help of Phil – which she would soon come to regret.
Phil took the lead in giving an introduction to the house, but made a silly error with his figures.
Phil said: “I think you might like the price – it’s £350,000.”
But just as Phil was about to continue, he was interrupted by Kirstie, who revealed the house was actually £550,000.
She said: “No, no, no you stupid a*** – it’s £550,000.”
Phil hung his head in shame, and later used the excuse: “I just have numbers and figures coming out of my ears.”
