The Agent listing features on Channel 4 Show


If you’ve seen the latest episode of Channel 4’s prime-time show ‘Love It Or List It’, you may have noticed some familiar sights! If not, you’re in for a treat.


The popular show follows TV’s Phil Spencer and Kirsty Allsopp as they try to convince buyers to either renovate and ‘love’ their existing home - or list it and move to a new property more suited for their changing needs.


This most recent instalment was set in the cathedral city of Lincoln, (where we are largely based) and prominently featured one of our very own listings. It was brought to the market by Charlotte Jones (our Lincoln agent) and was a key contender in trying to convince one indecisive couple to upsize in order to accommodate their growing family.


With two teenage boys and a new baby crammed into a small bungalow, the episode showed Carly and her husband Eric as they grappled with the choice of whether to move house or reimagine their 2-bedroom bungalow on the outskirts of Lincoln. Essentially, they were looking to maximise space and minimise problems caused by excess noise and being filled to capacity.


With their choices being a £50,000 extension of their current home or a move elsewhere for a budget of £250,000, the tense episode drew vocal feedback online from many local lincolnites! Carly was adamant that she would stay in her existing home, having lived on that street her entire life with her relatives close by, whereas Eric was keen for a change of scenery and more space for their children.


After being thoroughly unimpressed by the first property they viewed, the second listing shown on the show made an immediate impact on the young couple - and it’s one we’re proud to represent.


On the market for £260,000, the recently refurbished bungalow on Wragby Road was a firm favourite; impressing the couple with its spacious open-plan kitchen/diner, separate large sitting room and three good size bedrooms - the third of which is set on the first storey extension.


“It’s a lot bigger than I expected it to be!” - Carly


With an expansive 125ft garden, the property is deceptively quiet for its central location on one of Lincoln’s most connected transport links, as well as being over 20% bigger than their current home and with almost 40% more internal floor space. Finished to a high specification with new features and fittings throughout and in a prime position for commuting and direct access to the city centre, it’s little wonder why this listing caused such a commotion.


If you’ve not seen the latest episode of Channel 4’s ‘Love It Or List It’, don’t worry - we won’t spoil the surprise for you. You can watch online right here and see for yourself if Team ‘Love it’ or Team ‘List It’ won out.


SPOILERS AHEAD:



If you have seen it, you’ll know that Carly and Eric (but mainly Carly) decided to stay put and love their existing property. However, the impressively refurbished bungalow that we marketed on Wragby Road was sold by our Lincoln agent Charlotte Jones within a few days and the sale completed a few months ago! So, whilst it might not have been the property for Carly and Eric, it’s definitely made one lucky homeowner very happy indeed.
