Property developer, Sarah Beeny returns to Channel 4 with Sarah Beeny’s Selling Houses which gives competing home owners looking to sell their properties the chance to check out their rivals by giving them the unique chance to look around each other’s homes. After one week and with £1,000 to make improvements, Sarah brings in the buyers to hear the final verdict.
The Sarah Beeny’s Selling Houses team visited families selling their houses in Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells back in October 2012 where they met Paul and Kerry, in their colourful family home, Phillip in his modern minimalist detached and Paul and Adie in their country detached house.
