For some reason, it is always hard for me to get to this recap. The recaps don’t get many views so it get pushed for things that bring higher numbers. But I do really like the show. So let’s see what the guys got up to this week. I really hope that James didn’t drink!
Ut-oh! One of Flagg’s buyers has disappeared from the face of the earth after agreeing to the deal. That’s not good. Meanwhile he is off to a new listing appointment. It’s big with lots of windows but it is a very masculine, and contemporary. It’s basically $20 million.
Flagg has set up several private showings set up thirty minutes apart. But everyone seems to stick around and show up early. It’s basically a brokers open. Flagg is pissed.
Flagg has negotiated with one of the first clients in a fancy private cigar bar. They finally have a deal at $19.5 million. The developers paid 6.3 for it. I wonder how much they put in into renovations ? I’d guess around five or six million. They made off well on that three year turn around..
David and James
The Brits party all the time seller has gone missing. Apparently, he is in Russia. His dad says if they don’t get full price on the house, the gadabout seller is going to move into it. The father gets the Brits a working key to the house. It really is a pretty house.
We get a cute scene with James and his family. James and his wife have been married for five years. James wants to do something fantastic for their wedding anniversary.
The Brits meet to discuss the listing with the hard partying seller who is currently drinking vodka in Russia. Their Burning Man Party open house has been very successful. James has a buyer. David sais the party has been very lucrative. James says that he thinks that those parties are too risky for the two of them since they are both trying to maintain their sobriety. The agent comes and makes an offer of two million on the property. The Brits have to explain that they are not authorized to negotiate. It’s full price or the seller will move in. She gets pissed and huffs off, but she comes back apparently because after the commercial the scene replays with the walk off ever happening. Her client wants it. So she paid full price. I wish I know what kind of jeans that female agent was wearing. Good big girl jeans are hard to find.
Altman has a listing that is fugly. But it is a Wallace Neff home. Wallace Neff is apparently a famous architect. Let’s just say it’s not my style. If it even has a style. It should be a teardown. Oh wait, the owners don’t want to sell it as a teardown. The is beautiful. He lists it for $9,995,000 for a seven day listing.
He shows a couple of buyers the house. One wants to preserve it the other wants to bulldoze it. The contractors offer $10.5 million to sweeten the deal and motivate the sellers. But the offer is only good for two hours. The sellers are not happy with the one hour time limit. The guy who wants to restore it offers $9.5 million. The sellers suddenly decided that the sentimental attachment to the house was not more important than a million dollars. They took the $10.5
I’ve never understood why you would care what was done to the house after you leave it.
Next Week: Josh Altman gets revenge on Flagg for the glitter incident.
