This is one of the top searches that brings people to my blog for answers each day: “Is Love It or List It fake?” Apparently there are a lot of people out there who 1) watch the popular show on HGTV but 2) aren’t buying that all the drama in the episodes is real.
Otherwise most homeowners would end up loving their newly remodeled houses and staying put, and poor David would never get to “win.”I live in the area and know a couple who were on the show.
What we don’t see is that some of the houses the couple are looking at are not actually for sale.
We see a one-hour rendition of a three-week process.
It’s a lot for the home owners to process and the anxiety is apparent.”In the end I’m not sure how much it matters if the show’s drama is “faked” a bit for TV. We make each other laugh a lot.”This month a new version of the show premiered in the States (it was already airing in Canada) called Love It or List It Tooand real estate agent Todd Talbot are the hosts of this one, which takes place in Vancouver instead of Toronto.
As well, the “after” shots of the rooms are not actually finished sometimes.
My friend’s room was only half finished as they ran into more problems during the renos, so they took the shot to look as though the rooms are complete.
We get to do a little house hunting with the couple (even if they’re not always serious about moving) and it’s fun seeing how the renos turn out. I’m not sure why so many people think they might be. This seems to have caused a lot of viewer confusion and angst.
Maybe because they bicker like an old married couple on the show? A lot of people think this means David and Hilary got the boot.
I’m not sure what the actual discount is, perhaps lower labor costs, but it’s cheaper than if they had hired an independent contractor to do the work.
If she’s right, then it would make sense for the producers to choose how each episode ends.
Second, the speed of service is not what many guests (especially Americans) are used to. People frequently ask, which is the newest Sandals resort?
