phil and kirstie how to buy a house

Relocation, Relocation was cancelled in 2011 due to economic conditions making it difficult for people to buy one house, let alone two.[3] Repeats are frequently shown on More4 and it has also been dubbed in Italian and broadcast in Italy by Lei with the name: "CAMBIO CASA (FINALMENTE!)".[4] An Australian version of the show began in 2011.
A traditional turn of phrase used by property experts is that the three most important factors in determining the desirability of a property are "location, location, location".

In response to the findings, 'Kirstie & Phil's House Hunter' app, available from , is the first to allow buyers to search across thousands of UK properties while being guided through every stage of the house buying process, from searches and viewings to making an offer and closing the deal.
New research launched this week by TV property gurus Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer has revealed that UK home hunters overspent their combined budgets by a staggering £3.7 billion* last year, despite falling house prices and what should be a buyers market.
House Hunter is packed with videos and audio tip guides from Kirstie & Phil and contains chapters including a definitive guide to finance, mortgages, dealing with agents, legal processes and exchange and completion.
It’s like saying to a child: “There are Smarties on the table, but don’t eat them.” I’ve lost count of the number of times vendors’ estate agents have leant over and whispered to me: “Look, actually, you can get it for a lot less, because they’re desperate to sell.” They just can’t help themselves.
Kirstie Allsopp: My battleplan for house buyers and sellers Television’s property expert Kirstie Allsopp explains what works – and what doesn’t – when it’s time to move house.
It’s not cheap to get two solicitors together, but if you’re buying a £500,000 or £1 million property, it is worth it in terms of time saved, and all sorts of bills reduced (storage, removals and interim renting).
If you’ve gone bankrupt, for example, and are going back to your parents’ house with your tail between your legs, just tell the buyers you’re “moving to be closer to your parents”.
Of course, no estate agent is going to say the place is unsuitable, just as no clothes shop assistant is going to tell you your bottom looks big in that new dress.
If buyers ask awkward questions about why you’re moving, use phrases such as “It seems like the right time”, or “To be nearer friends and family”, and make sure to say, “We’ve been very happy here”.
We’ve teamed up with Zoopla to give you an inbuilt property search engine so you can look for houses all over the country, save them, call or email the agents directly from the app.
It’s a pocket Kirstie & Phil with you every step of the way, guiding you on everything from searches and viewings to making an offer and of course, closing the deal.

Kirstie Allsopp – the bubbly foil to the more considered and softley-spoken Phil Spencer – has been talking to a local newspaper in her adopted county of Devon about her property portfolio, as many people like to call multiple home ownership now.
It’s a holiday home-cum investment property and is available to rent for £2,000 a week plus it’s also featured in her recent TV show Kirstie’s Homemade Home during which she did up the dilapidated cottage for £23,000 and learned 15 crafts along the way, including iron mongery.

The survey of 2,000 home buyers, announced this week (29th June) to coincide with the launch of the new app ‘Kirstie & Phil’s House Hunter’ this summer, has revealed that almost half (49 per cent) blow their budget on average to the tune of over £10,000.
The 44-year-old – who has co-hosted Channel 4 property show Location, Location, Location with Miss Allsopp for 13 years – said they are so close his children are used to having a secondary mother figure in their lives.
Now Location, Location, Location presenter Phil Spencer has revealed he and Kirstie Allsopp are so close that he calls her his ‘other wife’.
Mr Spencer and Miss Allsopp spent half the year filming together, and the other half working on independent projects through their jointly owned production company.
I must admit, I don’t watch ‘Location, Location, Location’, but I know it’s an extremely popular show, and I know the pair are talked about quite a bit in the property industry, especially the extremely do’able Allsopp (anyone else feeling her sexual vibe?).
On Monday (17th November), Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer from ‘Location, Location, Location’ were on the show as guests; ready to answer a few property related questions from the public.
I initially started this website because I wanted to document my every step from property idiot to property landlord, in hope that people would find my site and help me along the way.

When I first started working with Kirstie and Phil, people would say to me that buying properties would be so much easier if only they could have these two kings and queens of property right there in their pocket as they tackled the complexities of finding a mortgage, dealing with the agents and negotiating the right price for their new home.
In the last week BBC Worldwide made that all possible with the launch of their first mobile phone app – Kirstie and Phil’s House Hunter – in the iTunes store.
Working in partnership with Kirstie and Phil’s new production company, Raise the Roof, the first task was to translate their expertise into an easy to read and digestible guide that could fit neatly onto an iPhone.
So through your programme/contacts can’t you get some of the ‘newbuilds’ required by govt to be built this way? It would release many of the properties now owned by the older generation to go onto the property ladder and fill a need for older folk that will just get bigger as years go by and people live longer.
Will shortly be looking for property in Anglesey, Currently selling my beachside stud farm which I will be sad to leave but its hard work now since losing my husband, i will be wanting to buy a property locally for my parents, pay off my mortgage and maybe buy myself a small renovation project as well to sell on.

Dear readers,It’s been an eventful year for me – the birth of my first child, a bouncing 11lb boy – and time away from the television.Yet the issues I’m passionate about remain unresolved ­and are perhaps getting worse.
We all know we could improve our homes to increase their value by making small changes – but where do we start and how much will it cost? Often it’s the smaller, cheaper improvements that can offer higher returns than the more expensive ones.

For a man whose career consists of helping people move, I have to own up to the fact that it is not an experience I like – and I did it for probably the third time in my life last year.
When that happens, presenters Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer are happy people… Sometimes you get what you wish for and Phil Spencer is one of the lucky ones.
Property experts Phil Spencer and Kirsty Allsop were asked for advice on beating the house price slump.
Phil from Relocation Relocation suggest you haggle hard when buying – bear in mind the house may soon be worth less than you paid for it – the market always has troughs and peaks.
Kirsty Allsop suggests house swaps are a good way to beat the stale market conditions.
We live in a remote scenic village on the North West coast of Scotland and have been trying to sell our house for a year.
It’s all relative – remember, when house prices fall, you may take a hit on your own sale, but you can make this up when buying as the drop hits the whole market.
TV property expert Phil Spencer talks about his partnership with Kirsty Allsopp and offers his top tips for home improvements and adding value.
They’re the yin and yang of property experts, with Phil’s down-to-earth practicality and Kirstie’s bubbly and effortless ability to bond with couples seeking homes on Channel 4’s two hugely successful series, Location, Location, Location, and its successor, Relocation, Relocation.
Phil’s budget tip: "You can really add value if you splash out on quality tiles, lighting and cabinets.
He says the majority of people spend around $10,000 on a kitchen, and agents estimate it can add around 5% to the value of a property.
"A bathroom is a job most people don’t want to do themselves, so it’s always a relief to see that it’s done when you’re viewing a house," says Phil.
Now, the mantra’s "don’t move, improve" and Phil not only welcomes the change in approach, but has put together a new comprehensive guide called Adding Value To Your Home.
Updating a boiler, ensuring wiring is up to date, and a roof is sound are essential basics, he says, and while they may not be visually decorative, they add to a property’s worth and avoid the potential of expensive remedial work.
The cost of moving is high and homes aren’t shooting up in price as rapidly as they once were, so people are staying put much longer," Phil points out.
