Beware the HGTV Effect

The popularity of shows like HGTV’s ‘Property Brothers’ and ‘Buying and Selling’ with Drew and Jonathan Scott may have you taking on more renovation projects than you’re ready for. (Photo courtesy of HGTV)

As we head into the spring season, many begin to think about a new home, fresh renovation or selling their existing home. Lately, we have been hearing from clients and friends that they watch home renovation shows on networks specializing in home searches and sales.

We, too, at The Goodhart Group have a slight addiction to these types of shows, but what person in the real estate industry isn’t interested in all things to do with the home? However, we have begun to notice a slight impact this type of television is having on our clients. Many have looked toward home renovation rather than selling as an option and even want to try it themselves as they have seen many do on television.
