Join me on TV

I have two ideas for tv series. But I need to find people who are happy to join me on camera.

The first idea is simply about My Unique Friends. In other words those of you who advertise your homes on the Unique Property site. However, you dont have to advertise on the site to appear on tv. What I want to show is unique people who live in unique homes.

Is there something unique about where you live? It could be the unusualness of the home itself, or it could be very photogenic. It might have an interesting history. And, are the people living in the house interesting and unusual in any way? Do you have unusual hobbies, or have achieved something out of the ordinary? And I do need something I can get my teeth into, that will keep the interest of the average viewer for half an hour.

If you think you and your home fit the bill then please contact me, and we’ll see if we can get the show on the road.

The second idea is based upon the swap section of the Unique Property site.

Times are tough. It’s tough getting finance to buy a house. Everything seems tough. In such times we need to get creative. How about swapping homes? It may prove difficult to swap a finance deal, but assuming you have a mortgage already you are presumably good for the payments. If you are good for the payments on one house you should be good for the payments on another, always assuming the other house values up.

We have a Swap section on the Unique Property site. However, it isn’t doing very well. It’s a new concept, and I guess folks are wary of doing something untested. We need to raise the nation’s consciousness as regards House Swapping.

Is there anyone out there who would be interested in the idea of swapping homes as a possible alternative to buying and selling? If we can find enough people interested in the idea I am sure it is something I could sell to a tv channel.

So guys, I need to hear from you. Post a comment below and I’ll let you know how I get on.

  1. Hello
    I am interested in putting my property on your website. I am rather put-off doing so as there is no email address listed. Just links to credit card payments.
    If I do list my property do I automatically have access to your newsletter or do I have to pay for that on a separate basis?
    Lookin forward to your reply/

  2. Hi John,
    As you know we have been trying to sell our unique house for some time so that we can move to France. I would be happy to go on camera and talk about the house and how we built it from a very small corporation cottage, designing and doing a lot of the work myself. As I am dyslexic I have a sort of 3D vision – I have the ability to see things finished in my head. You can see from the website that the views from the house are stunning and we even have a concrete pad at the bottom of the garden that a helicopter has landed on! I am an entrepreneur who left school at 15 with no qualifications but I run 3 businesses – Sign Sense which is a signwriting business, Sign LED which makes, imports,sells and installs LED sign products and more recently Lux LED which we set up to fill a gap in the market to supply LED lighting which is far superior and more environmentally friendly and economical than incandescent bulbs. See the links http://www.signled.ie and http://www.luxled.ie. I am a bit of a Mr Fixit as I am interested in how things work and I am self taught.
    My wife is an artist and we have many of her paintings on display in our house. However she is a bit too shy to be on camera.

  3. Thank you for another informative site. The place else may just I am getting that kind of information written in such an ideal approach? I have a project that I am simply now running on, and I have been on the glance out for such information.

  4. Hi John,
    Do you need help with the tv projects , my
    Husband is an RTS award winning documentary tv director he also does up property! Getting tv programmes commissioned
    Is a political nightmare and nowadays budgets
    Are very tight. However I think your idea is
    Very interesting and there still is an interest
    In property with the British public.
    If you want to discuss anything further , don’t
    Hesitate to contact me and I will put you in
    Touch with my husband.
    Regards
    Julie

    • Swaps dont seem to be very popular. I guess it is very difficult getting two people to agree on the fact that they want each other’s property.

      Dont you want to simply sell it rather than swap. I think would give you a much better chance.

  5. I am not a big believer of government mandates, but maybe the government should require kids to take and pass a course in high school that deals with finance. Just maybe some the issues with debt, credit cards, and savings would disappear.

  6. I simply want to tell you that I am just beginner to blogging and site-building and absolutely savored you’re blog site. Most likely I’m planning to bookmark your blog post . You amazingly come with outstanding writings. Regards for sharing with us your web site.

  7. Hi John
    We still have not sold despite reducing the price to more than £100k below what we paid for the house – actually we have ‘sold’ many times however, everyone needs a mortgage OR has a property to sell which just aint happening!!! so, count us in on the TV programme!!

    • I still haven’t got round to progressing that side of things. Too many other things getting in the way. I will try and push it to the top of the list. The trouble is, it is difficult getting people to commit themselves on programming, but I will try and progress things.

  8. I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here frequently. I am quite certain I’ll learn a lot of new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

  9. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your site. You have some really great posts and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Thanks!

  10. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic nonetheless , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or possibly guest writing a weblog post or vice-versa? My weblog covers lots of exactly the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. In case you are interested feel totally free to send me an e-mail. I appear forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

  11. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again very soon!

  12. I’ve just been reading your blog mainly because we love unusual houses (I have previously lived in a derelict French farm for about 14 years) and then on your excellent blog I came across the piece about you wanting to make a TV series about swapping houses in the current climate. Well I’m up for that, I have this house http://youtu.be/RQ5Dv_xfQXA for sale with an estate agent (at less than advertised on my video) and not a single viewing, I’ve had it advertised previously online on Househop, not a sausage and I’ve tried on my local Facebook sites and so on. The house is fantastic for a young couple and if I could have had one like that when I started out instead of crappy shared digs, life would have been much better. Anyway, I’ll swap, I’ll consider all offers and I’m willing to have it / me on the TV, but be warned I do have a face for radio, so if I still have the property when you make the series (the likely hood is I will) lets get swapping. Keep up the good work.Mick

  13. Your style is really unique compared to other people I have read stuff from. Many thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I’ll just book mark this web site.
