Grandparents Carole and Russell Bramston are selling the Boya home that was renovated by their team mates on Channel 7's House Rules earlier this year.

The Western Australian couple were runners up on the series, losing out to Melbourne's Adam and Lisa.

They purchased the Boya home (pictured above prior to the House Rules renovation) off classifieds website Gumtree for $360,000, and ended up with a home riddled with structural and superficial problems, including plumbing issues, mould, pest problems and holes in the floors and walls.

Carole told WA Today that if the couple had won House Rules and had their $290,000 mortgage wiped clean, they would have kept the home. After losing, they're now hoping to offload the home to help them downsize and enter a mortgage free retirement.

The couple said they plan to use the sale of their Boya home to fund a move to the riverside suburb of Ascot, where they intend to build small townhouse.

Earlier this year, Carole and Russell faced accusations that they weren't the "battlers" they were portrayed as on television due to their three bedroom Halls Head home that they were intending to sell for $1.17 million.

However, the couple told WA Today that the Halls Head home "has a massive mortgage over it", and that they could not afford to live in it. It has since been removed from the market, after the asking price was lowered to $995,000.

Carole and Russell are not the first couple from the second season of House Rules to attempt to offload their renovated homes. Candy and Ryan sold their Emu Plains house sold their house in late August for $190,000 more than the initial purchase price.
