Visiting a property in Southampton, Martin Roberts said: “What a lovely place to come looking for property.The property I’m here to see certainly sounds rather intriguing. £150,000 for a one-bedroom bungalow which is described as being to the rear of another property.” Heading down the side of a property to see the one up for auction, Martin said he didn’t like the little narrow corridor you had to go down to reach the home.

The bungalow was situated in a home’s garden.

Upon entering, viewers got to see the inside of the bungalow.

Martin said: “It’s just as uninspiring on the inside. We’ve basically got one long kind of design really. Everything’s one room, then another room, then another room.”

The property had a conservatory, living room area, a kitchen which was dated as well as a bathroom and bedroom.

A brand new stylish white and grey kitchen had been fitted along with new flooring and appliances.

Martin said: “Jason has done a fantastic job here. Jason and his builder have addressed the layout problems by adding a few partition walls.

“The route to the bathroom is no longer through the bedroom, as a new corridor provides separate access.”

Jason had also given the exterior of the property a lick of paint to freshen it up.

Overall, he ended up spending £8,500 on all of the work.

A local estate agent visited the property to find out how much value Jason has added to the home.

The expert said: “It feels like a completely different property…If I was to bring the property to the market for sale in the current climate, I would expect it to achieve around £190,000 to £200,000.”

Taking that top figure, Jason has managed to boost the home’s value by a huge £35,000.
