The last episode of Our First Home and the last of the live auctions aired yesterday, with a Papamoa family losing the top spot.

The Pearce family (pictured) consisted of Grant, Janette, daughter Atareta, and boyfriend Tawera.

Atareta was an office manager for Moana Radio and had a small jewellery business. Tawera worked as a machine operator.

The Pearces sold their house for $807,000, which generated a profit of $17,717 - not enough to beat the Wottons.


The first of the live auctions saw the Wottons get $780,000 for their house.

The four-member Wotton team consisted of Tauranga woman Theresa Tingey - who lives in the Bay with her husband - her son Josh Tingey, his primary school teacher girlfriend Bex, 26, and Bex's father Henry Wotton.

Theresa Tingey had extensive painting and wallpapering experience from previous house renovations.

Three families renovated old houses, and the family with the biggest profit on their house took away a $100,000 prize.
