The Schreuders Bring in the Cash With Our First Home Win

The tension ran high at the Our First Home auctions this week, with the family selling their home with the largest profit margin receiving an extra 100,000 dollars as the icing on the cake.

On Monday night, the Schreuder’s sold their three bedroom Titirangi home for a whopping $721,000, with a profit of $190,400, giving them a profit margin of 35.88%, beating out the Gourley’s 24.87% and the Wardlaw’s 34.14%. This means the Schreuder’s netted a staggering total profit of $290k! And it’s not surprising, with their well renovated home! Harrisons are proud to have provided added value through the quality installed Harrisons Positano 090 Carpet, and a great five panel solar system to produce their own electricity.

The Schreuder family are ecstatic (and slightly overwhelmed) with the outstanding result.

“This is the icing on the cake! We’ve had the most amazing journey and we could never have imagined we’d be in this position when we got to the end of it. This is a life changing amount of money and we can’t wait to start looking for a house.

“Thanks to our family and friends, sponsors and all the people who have supported us up and down the country.”

The other families’ profits are also nothing to be scoffed at, ending the first season of Our First Home on a high note. All the families definitely completed their goal of giving the next generation a step up on the property ladder.

“It’s great that all the families have been so successful at auction and with over half a million viewers watching each auction episode, the TV ONE audience has also been right behind them.”
