It’s no secret many find their home design concepts and fun real estate facts from HGTV. The network gives the general public a bird’s eye view of renovating, interior design, and real estate agents. Homeowners binge shows to get ideas to then share with their local realtor. Though HGTV gives a glamorous look at the home market, you can bet everything on TV is not always how it goes in real life. I get a kick out of the latest DIY tips and tricks, investing advice and quick-to-find a home journey the shows impress upon us. While real estate is a unique trade, the process generally takes longer than the show depicts it to be.
Our expectation of real estate can be skewed by TV’s interpretation. While the hope is to have a smooth buying and selling experience, there may be times when delays or change of circumstances occur. The reality is that buyers could preview a couple of homes until finding the gem of a property. That goes without saying that each person has their style and taste for decoration. As a Realtor, I help you see beyond the personal relics and redesign the space for you. HGTV always has its own sales proposition. The design styles used in the homes are often what the network wants viewers to see to purchase. Home industry companies sponsor shows and place their products on TV. Kitchen or bathroom fixtures are on display, so new homeowners will run to the store and grab the same good. Buying what you see on TV is not bad; however, when your budget comes to mind, it’s always wise to be savvy when shopping for home appliances and accessories. Don’t blow your budget on trendy here now and gone tomorrow goods, instead invest your money in heirlooms that will last.
Overall, HGTV is quite useful for quick budgeting and design ideas. The assortment of shows helps viewers realize they too can own the home of their dreams. A network dedicated to houses and exploring new areas helps the industry boom and stay popular. We can’t help but aspire for great homes with everything we want, though the reality is, HGTV is months of a process simplified for a sixty-minute show. While quicks deals and settlements happen, we must be optimistic when the process takes a different direction.
