Foxtel’s smash-hit local production, Selling Houses Australia returns for its 13th season later this month.
Award-winning host, Andrew Winter is back with his brutal honesty and real estate expertise as he teams up with interior designer Shaynna Blaze and landscape designer Charlie Albone to help homeowners with property dreams that have turned sour.
After scouring the length and breadth of Australia’s heartland the Selling Houses team has found 10 more properties in dire need of a facelift – and don’t they have their work cut out for them. A tiny stone cottage in Tassie, a classic Aussie pub in remote western Victoria, and a huge resort style home on Brisbane’s tropical outskirts are some of the properties struggling to secure a sale. But there is a reason Selling Houses Australia continues to be the most successful locally produced series in subscription television history – the renovations change the lives of everyday Australians and this season we celebrate a landmark 100th sale!
Recently voted Sydney’s most liveable suburb, it’s hard to imagine that a property in Crows Nest would struggle to find a buyer. But sitting on a large corner block is a historic terrace building with an identity crisis. John and Kitsa’s online business selling organic and fermented food was doing so well, that in 2017 they decided to buy the Crows Nest property and invest 700k attempting to convert it from a residence into a store with a commercial café. But things didn’t go to plan. The business took up so much of their time that the café never got off the ground. Reassessing their lives, they decided to throw in the towel and focus on their family, listing the property as a half renovated shell. Despite a realistic asking price the house/shop doesn’t appeal to buyers who need it to be more residence and less business. With no domestic kitchen, flooring, or furniture throughout, John and Kitsa are banking on the Selling Houses team to spend their money the right way in order to make enough to clear their debt. It’s time for Andrew, Shaynna and Charlie to turn this commercial dream into a dream home and secure their 100th sale!
Season 13 of Selling Houses Australia will be the final season featuring landscape designer Charlie Albone.
A nationwide search is currently underway for a new ‘landscape legend’ to join the top-rating Foxtel series alongside Andrew Winter and Shaynna Blaze.
Selling Houses Australia returns for its 13th season on Wednesday March 25 at 8.30pm AEDT on the LifeStyle Channel
