A Place In The Sun viewers cringe at low and 'cheeky' offer placed by couple



A Place In The Sun viewers hit out at the 'cheeky stunt' pulled by a couple who viewed a house that was on offer for a low price.

Presenter Lee Juggurnauth took couple Julie and Peter on a tour of their possible dream homes in the southwest of France.

The duo had a budget of £200,000 and were seeking out a two-bedroom detached home with traditional French features.

Lee showed off a few viable options but it was the final home that impressed the couple.

It was a three-bedroom property located in Degagnac, which used to be an old school building. The home was on sale for £185,000.

Although the home was already on sale for a low price, the couple decided to put in an offer for £150,000.

Upon hearing their offer, the presenter asked: "That is significantly lower than the asking price, what's the reason for that?"

Julie explained: "We need to put in a shower room downstairs for the second bedroom, convert the annexe garage doors into proper windows and doors and we would like to put a swimming pool in."

Their low offer, despite being within their budget, was rejected.

Fans were confused by the pair and took to Twitter to complain about the couple's offer.

"WoW they were hard work!!! That was uncomfortable to watch…" one user groaned.

Another added: "Once again, a couple expecting the seller to pay for their renovation."

"£150k for a £185k property? That is quite the stunt to pull," one viewer commented.

It wasn't the first time A Place In The Sun had to work with a couple's small offer.

Recently, expert Jean Johansson faced an almighty task when she was asked to find the dream holiday home for a retired couple in Italy with a budget of £60,000.

Despite their small budget, the couple agreed they were "open-minded" about the property they would be able to afford.

"We are just wondering what you're going to come up with because our budget isn't a very big one," Linda said.

Jean replied: "I am glad you've brought that up, Linda. I mean I have to say, I've never worked with a budget of £60,000, so it's going to be a challenge for me."

The couple explained their hopes to spend half the year in southern Italy and were looking for a one-bedroom property with some outdoor space.

After finding a property they liked, which was on the market for £63,000, they initially put forward an offer of £57,000.

It was initially rejected but the couple came back with a counteroffer that was eventually accepted by the owner much to the couple's excitement.
