Do you dream of living mortgage free? This new series presented by Sarah Beeny features inspiring people across the country who are liberating themselves from debt and are sharing their secrets on how you could do the same.
In the opening episode, Sarah meets Annie from Lincolnshire who, at the age of 27, saw the potential in an unused industrial brownfield site, which she snapped up for just £25,000. Just two years later she’s now the proud owner of a house worth over a quarter of a million pounds, where there was once an old reservoir, without owing anything to the banks.
With designer Max McMurdo and architect Damion Burrows, Sarah meets 29-year-old Kimberley who’s desperate to be free of the monthly burden of ever-increasing London rent. With £25,000 of savings, her ingenious solution is to buy a 100-year-old derelict Dutch barge and transform it into her bijou home on the waterways. Sarah also meets Nick, who’s 69, from Kent, who spotted a property no banks would risk giving a loan for: a 2400 square foot Victorian flat pack tin chapel that Nick got for a bargain £90,000, mortgage-free.
Plus: the young family who became mortgage-free in just eight years without moving home by using some very clever and simple tricks.
