Viewers of PERFECT House, Secret Location spoke about the HUGE budget that guests have on the show.
Channel 4 viewers joined host Steve Jones as he helped Keith and Tracey find a unique forever home by driving blindfolded families across the UK in a van in a bid to find them a Dream house.
The Essex couple were looking for a property with more space, a bigger garden and a place where Keith could build a “man’s cave”.
Builder Keith, 48, was also hoping to find a home that needed minimal work.
The family had a big budget of £650,000 to £700,000 and hoped it would be their last home after moving five times in the space of three years.
Steve showed them a 17th-century pub, an upside-down former butcher’s shop, a seaside haven and a prefab 1980s pavilion.
But viewers criticized the program for showing only families with “unrealistic” and “ridiculous” budgets.
One viewer wrote: “@SteveJones loves the new show #perfecthousesecretlocation but come on these budgets are ridiculous!!
“Each house is around 3 times the national average. Ple3ase3 aligns it more with the average. Please align it more with the average person – a budget of £300,000 would be in line with what the general public can afford!”
Another posted: “#perfecthousesecretlocation all the episodes where the family doesn’t have a fucking stupidly huge budget, by any chance?!?”
A third said: ‘It must have been over £700,000 as the presenter said the average price in this area was £350,000 (or thereabouts) and they had double the budget.’
“Watching #perfechousesecretlocation on Channel 4 and wondering how people have budgets of £650,000 for a house,” a fourth replied.
The program aims to show people how far their money can go in places they wouldn’t normally consider.
At the end of each episode, the families are left with a big decision: stay put or take a leap of faith and start a new life somewhere far away.
Last month viewers saw Steffi, 37, and Jimmy, 38, who had been based in Brentford for fourteen years with their three children Alice, Heidi and Franklin, looking for their ideal property.
The family visited a fake Tudor house, a Georgian house with a wine cellar and a converted old post office as they searched for more space.
They were taken to the coast at Hastings for their first visit, where they saw the spacious Tudor house with six bedrooms and four bathrooms.
“London w*****s who can afford to buy a castle after selling their crappy little suburban homes,” annoyed one viewer.
A second chimed in: “You want to know precisely what’s wrong with housing in Britain today?
“Why London has such a toxic effect and how smug housing schemes can make you deaf and howling with anger when whole generations can’t be housed? Head to Perfect House.”
Perfect House, Secret Location returns to Channel 4 on Thursday at 8 p.m.
