There was no smile to trace, since Astrid and Steffen from Frederiksberg then this house, as the experts in the program 'home purchases in the blind' on TV3 had bought for them - for their own money mind you.
Before they had entrusted all their fortune money and a power of attorney to three experts, who had the power to buy a house and renovate it.
the Pair was not allowed to see it, before it was bought, and seen with the benefit of hindsight it was perhaps very good .
When they saw the house the first time, they were far from convinced that the 60'is the villa that they had bought for their money, would ever become their dream home.
How it works the concept:
In the 'home purchases in the blind' is the participants ' own money is on the table, when getting bought a house.
But the new homeowners have not seen the house, as the experts have invested in on their behalf.
the House is being traded, so there are little funds to put the home able. But it is only the participants ' money that is on the table.
the Experts refurbisher and decorate the house, as the participants are actually moving into when they see it for the first time.
- I'm obviously more fussy than I ever thought. I think it is terrible, it sounded downcast from Steffen, when he first cast eyes on the dwelling.
And Astrid had to agree.
- Right now I'm just completely disheartened, told Astrid in the program and described how she had a lump in my stomach over the fact that they had bought a house, which they in no way could see themselves in.
But perhaps, the couple were still a bit too quick to judge the house. When the experts had renovated the house for several months, and the pair should again see it, it was almost not to recognize.

Disappointed, mine was swapped out with a big smile.
The space in which the pairs had been dissatisfied with the dark wood ceilings and old-fashioned bathrooms, was now completely changed.
- It is quite amazing - I had just not seen come, saith the 31-year-old Steffen, when he sees his new home again.
And the pair have not looked back since.

It is now three months since they moved into the house, and they have been more than wild with it ever since.
It tells the 30-year-old Astrid to Ekstra Bladet.
It was a very surreal feeling to hand over all our money to some other. Even though we had bought the house, it felt not the case, but today we are so happy that we were with in the program, she says.
Actually, there is not one thing that Astrid has not seemed well on the post.
- all of It is megalækkert. The only thing that we might do a little differently is that we would have saved a little bit more. But that is not something that we think is bad, she says.
the Couple has since also intend to stay in the house, just like they now even have started to make on their own small projects at home.
- We are very happy, and the house has only been worth more. We have thought ourselves to be and live, saith the closing from a happy Astrid.
