Good Buy

Most of us have dreams of owning a home in a beautiful location, whether it’s by the sea, in the countryside or even in a picturesque town or village. The problem is — dream homes aren’t cheap.

But buying at auction could allow you to pick up a property that, with a bit of work, could be turned into your perfect abode – if you can make the winning bid.

Good Bid, Good Buy follows the auction process from start to finish, and features families on the hunt for their ideal home.

Presenters Clare Reid and Michael Holmes, both property experts, are on hand to demystify the whole auction process, and to advise the families on making the most of their investment.

When auction day arrives, the tension and excitement builds as the featured family bid for the house they have set their hearts on. But will their offer win them the house – or will they miss out turning their hopes into reality?

The show also follows two families who are bidding against each other for their desired property, each with different ideas and reasons as to why this is just the house for them.

Then, cameras follow the winning bidders of a house at auction to find out what their plans are for the property, as well as paying them a visit to see their progress on transforming it into a home.

Good Bid, Good Buy also highlights the range of properties available nationwide each week, showcasing one high-end property that is up for auction in ‘Gem of the Week’ – as well as a ‘Wreck of the Week’, a rundown property with loads of potential in a great location.
