Alan explained they did still want to get as close to their budget as possible so he asked Jasmine to call the agent and present the offer of £166,000.
Unfortunately, their original deal was taken off the table as the agent said the owners were unwilling to go for anything below £170,000.
The couple told the host they’d already had a discussion about going higher and made a second offer of £172,000 – £12,000 over their original budget.
After an anxious wait to see what the property expert had agreed to, the husband and wife were told they were the proud new owners of the villa.
Hilary gave her husband a kiss on the cheek as her eyes filled with tears over the result, with Jasmine over-the-moon about the sale.
