Our First Home’s Wotton family have come out on top in the competition, taking out the grand prize and banking a total of $199,284.
Opportunity to now find their own home
Tonight's result is a dream come true for the Wottons and Bex and Josh look forward to exploring their opportunities and finding their own first home.
"We're delighted to have won the competition and we're incredibly proud of what we achieved. For Bex and Josh this is a huge leg up for their future together. We had extremely worthy opponents who created amazing homes and we wish them all the best for their futures."
"We'd also like to thank all our family and friends, as well as the show's sponsors, and the viewers for the support we've had up and down the country."
TVNZ Head of Content, Jeff Latch, says the Our First Home Live Auction Week has been a captivating watch for TV ONE viewers.
"The three families have worked incredibly hard throughout the competition and have done themselves proud. The TV ONE audience has been alongside them every step of the way and we’d like to thank the families for their commitment to the show. We’re pleased their involvement will help the kids take another step toward securing their first home."
Homes sold under the hammer
As a supporting partner of Our First Home, we sold all three homes under the hammer. Managing Director, Peter Thompson says the auction process was the ideal method of determining the winning property.
"The families made a tremendous impact on their homes through their renovations and with three very different competing properties, the auctions provided the benefit of transparency around exactly what the market was willing to pay on the day."
