This Block Couple Can’t Buy A House Despite $800K Win!

While Josh and Charlotte pocketed a cool $800,000 after being crowned winners of The Block back in April, they are still struggling to get into the Sydney housing market! 

Charlotte Ekas and Josh Terret claim they have missed out on several properties at the auction, revealing they are yet to set down roots, eight months after winning the Channel Nine Show. 

Talking to the Manly Daily, Josh, 26, said "We've found a couple (of houses) that we like but we missed out at the auction by quite a lot". 

The couple took home $810,000 after selling their renovated unit on The Block for $2.2million. 

When Charlotte, a lifestyle blogger, signed up to compete in the show, she said she had less than $1,000 to her name. 

However their windfall isn't enough for the North Shore home of their dreams. 

Josh hopes that "the market starts to slow down a little". 

While the couple have treated themselves to new cars, most of their cash remains in the bank until they find the right property. 

Good luck to you both!
