Jimmy and Tam: $1,066,000
Surreal and unbelievable. It was ridiculous.
It's the emotional connection that we created for our buyer. Emese [Fajk, the buyer] loved watching our journey creating this home. Everyone told us it was so important to create that.
We would love to buy some land and build our off-the-grid barn of our dreams. We created a mini version of it in the Lego challenge.
We absolutely adore our daughter Frankie. We did this to change her life, but one is more than enough for us!
Luke & Jasmin: $506,000
Coming into the auction we were comfortable... but as soon as we had to walk up to the auction couch, it hit home. Not only did we want to do well, we had been given the task to set the auction bar high.
We felt like our dreams had come true.
We were really hoping to get between $250k to $300k. That was our ultimate.
We are hoping for financial freedom. Pay off the mortgage, buy a bigger house for the kids, then get a caravan.
Look, we didn't win, so we really need to think about that plan, and a caravan for five might break the budget. But we will see!
Harry and Tash: $650,000
So nervous! We were worried going last that all the money may have left the auction room. We had just seen Danny Wallis buy two houses and thought he was done!
We thought $300k would be nice but thought we'd be lucky to get $150k, so to get $650k, it's just next level.
Tash plans to use it as a deposit for a house and is going to go for a career in musical theatre!
Sarah and George: $650,002
Euphoric is the best word. We were in utter shock. When Sarah said, "Babe, that's our mortgage gone..." there was just so much to process.
We were preparing ourselves for $100k. Our wildest dreams were $400k.
Pay off our mortgage and... a family is definitely on the cards.
Daniel and Jade: $460,000
It was just relief. With coronavirus we weren't sure we were going to sell on auction.
At the end of the day we wanted $20,000. The fact that it skyrocketed was just amazing.
We could pay off our mortgage... that would allow Daniel to spend more time with me and the kids.
