Ben Hillman was helping couple Gary and Jane find their dream holiday home in the Spanish town of Casares on the Costa Del Sol in Wednesday’s A Place in the Sun. The Channel 4 presenter was hoping to find the couple a spacious property for £160,000 however when Ben questioned Gary’s haggling technique, the guest hit back at the host.
Gary and Jane had visited the Costa Del Sol many times but were strangers to Casares.
Ben asked why they had their sights set on a holiday home in that particular region.
Gary replied: “Well when you look at how south it is and you can get more for your money.
“You’ve got more daylight hours, more sunshine, it’s just a nicer climate.”
“We love the property,” he replied. “But the Yorkshire in me doesn’t want to pay full price because that’s silly.”
When their initial offer was rejected, the couple agreed to raise their price to £155,000.
“That’s a reasonable price for that property,” Jane noted and Ben added: “Look what you’re getting for that money.”
Ben quickly told the couple their offer had been accepted: “You’ve done so well. Are you over the moon?”
