During a recent episode of A Place in the Sun, Channel 4 host Lee Juggurnauth took retired couple Dabi and Devi to Valencia in the hopes of finding them their dream holiday home. The couple from Croydon had a budget of £180,000 and were looking for a property they could spend six months at a time in. Dabi and Devi seemed to be impressed with the properties they viewed, although, the pair couldn’t come to an agreement about which holiday home to put an offer in for. In the end, the house hunters stunned Lee when they decided to flip a coin to decide which house they picked.
The couple seemed to have a disagreement on which of the five properties were their favourites.
Dabi preferred the second holiday home that Lee took them to, while Devi dreamed of living in the fifth property.
Property two was a four-bed villa located in Barx. It had a patio area and a balcony that overlooked a private pool and mountain views.
It even came with a games room and a galley kitchen. The property was priced at £179,000, slightly under the couple’s budget.
Property five was another four-bed villa located a 10-minute car journey from the centre of Oliva.
It was put on the market for £198,000 which was £18,000 over the couple’s budget.
The villa came with a communal pool and a front terrace that boasted mountain views. It even had a ground-floor annexe with a separate entrance.
After Dabi and Devi had viewed all five properties, they sat down with Lee to make their final decision.
“So, how was your night?” Lee asked them. “Stressful? It’s a big decision. We had two contenders.”
“Devi and I, we loved both properties,” Dabi replied as Lee asked: “What did you think of property five?”
Devi replied: “It ticked all the boxes of location, space, view…”
Dabi didn’t seem too convinced as he hit back: “But to me, when I walked into the property, I just felt a slight compactness about it.”
Lee replied: “I feel like it’s a bit of a competition. We’ve got team Dabi who’s property number two and we’ve got team Devi who’s property five. Who is going to win?”
Dabi shocked the host with his response as he explained: “We tossed a coin, yeah. We agreed that we’d do that.

“You actually did that?” a baffled Lee quizzed. “Literally, you tossed a coin?”
“I won,” Dabi continued while Lee tried to comprehend the unorthodox buying technique.
“So, basically I want to open up with property two by making an offer,” Dabi added as Lee said: “This could potentially change your life.”
Lee proceeded to call the estate agents to put in an offer of £160,000 for property two.
After the current owners declined the offer, the couple increased their offer to £170,000 – which again the owners declined because they wanted the full asking price.
In an unexpected turn of events, Dabi and Devi decided to put in an offer for property five, which was originally priced at £198,000, £18,000 over their budget.
However, the couple thought they would put in a cheeky offer of £160,000 to see if they could push their luck.
After the current owners declined the offer, Devi and Dabi increased their offer to £167,500, which was finally accepted – meaning they saved more than £30,000.
Viewers could not believe the couple managed to bag their dream home for a bargain price.
Taking to social media, one penned: “Bloody jammy! Good for them good start for Lee.”
Another wrote: “Love this couple. Well done, Lee.”
A third commented: “OMG so happy for them.”
A Place in the Sun airs weekdays at 3pm on Channel 4.
