Do you have a deep appreciation for original hardwood flooring and well thought out kitchens? Do you read real estate listings despite the fact you are neither buying, nor selling a home? If so, House Hunters is probably the television content of your dreams. House Hunters follows people from all walks of life on their journey to home ownership. Viewers at home get a first row look in to several of the properties they visit. The soon-to-be homeowners debate everything from paint choices (always an easy change to make) to kitchen cabinets (very expensive to replace). As you tag along on their home tours you also get a peek into the emotional side of the experience. Viewers get to see what happens when buyers fall into the usual home purchase pit falls such as buying homes above their budget because they have fallen in love with the property. Sometimes the home buyers aren't on the same page in regard to what property to buy and for what price. As the drama begins, your anxiety level rises right along with theirs. Along the way, you also learn a thing or two about real estate. For instance, is buying the worst house on the nicest block really a sound financial strategy. Where should you put your remodeling dollars to get the most resell value? Are houses with pools really hard to resell or is that just a myth? Once the couple has chosen a property, you follow them through the negotiation process. Watching someone negotiate the purchase price of a home is as fraught with emotion as you would imagine. In the end, the viewers do get a glimpse into how the purchase worked out when the cameras return several months later. As they give the camera crew a tour you get to see what changes the homeowner's have made and their choices in paint and decor. House Hunters is a real estate hobbyist's must see.
