I have an obsession with Homes Under the Hammer. It is one property show I love watching on BBC. I have been a fan of this show for many years now, Been loving it long before we became home owners. My obsession is so serious that I watch this show everyday and play catch up on BBC iPlayer when I miss it. I remember daydreaming about owning homes or at least a home to start with in the UK. It is amazing we now own our home, but building a property portfolio is still a dream. I hope to change that dream to a reality one day, and I know I can with hard work, planning and determination.
Why do I Like Homes Under the Hammer So Much
I think the show is brilliant. I love seeing deadbeat homes transform into luxurious houses. The whole auction and renovation process is very interesting. It is amazing to see how much a deadbeat house is worth and how much money and times goes into renovating it. Seeing the profit margins motivates me even more to get into the property business as soon as we can.
The fact that a house can be easily transformed with some tiles/carpets, blinds, beautiful decor, paint, lean to conservatory, French doors, and more is great. It makes me want to step up my DIY skills. I have seriously improved when it goes to DIY. Some months ago, I couldn’t even use a screwdriver properly when I had to change the batteries in the kiddies’ toys, but now I can. With things like this, it takes determination, and I am determined to be better at doing home improvements around the house.
Our plan is to paint some of the rooms in the next few months, and I am looking forward to getting my hands dirty. Most of the homeowners that appear on Homes Under the Hammer do a good portion of the home improvements themselves to save money, and I don’t blame them. In order to increase the profit margins, you have to be able to do some of the work.
