I am addicted to HGTV! There I said it. My favorite show is House Hunters! Why??? It is my life. I live it weekly. I can show 100's of houses in a week but I still enjoy watching other realtors show houses. What draws me to this show? I can watch people look at houses all day. Their comments are the most intriguing thing of all. What is wrong with me??
I love to listen to them as they rave about the abundance of natural light and windows in a room. Paint is very important to these people on TV. What is wrong with them? Doesn't their Realtor tell them that its only paint. Even a monkey can paint with quick instruction!!! They rule out houses for the most ridiculous reasons. And where do they get all the vacant houses from?? Most of them are empty. Where are all the homesellers who follow you and explain every outlet and switch to you??
Also, the prices seem unbelievable. I live in New Jersey. Granted our prices are a little higher than most of the country, I can't believe that these people can get a house for $175,000 with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. That's outrageous!!! Their mortgages are going to be less than my rent when I first got married.
I can't stop watching! It's like a car accident where everyone rubbernecks!! I guess it is why people go to open houses. It is interesting to see how people live and what their homes look like. As I write this I am watching House Hunter International and can't believe how folks in France live. Not me!!!
