I like to look at homes that are for sale and for rent even when I have no intention of moving. I watch a lot of HGTV and even though I don’t know much about decorating or anything I still like to see how they decorate their homes. I like to watch House Hunters and look at the places they look at and decide which one I would pick and which one I think they should pick. Sometimes I’ll spend hours online looking at places that are available in my town just for fun. I’m not really planning on moving but it’s fun. I’ve noticed that the prices vary a lot, too. You can click here to see one of the sites I use to look at available places.
I also like to watch this show called Love It Or List It. Basically they take a family who are thinking about selling their home and they have a specific budget that they use to make renovations to their home and then there’s also another guy who takes them out to look at houses that he thinks would better meet their requirements. At the end of the show they get to see the renovations to their own home and think about the places they looked at and then decide if they’re going to stay in their own home or put it up or sale and move into one of the new homes.
I don’t really watch that much TV but I do watch a lot on HGTV. The renovation shows aren’t really that interesting to me, though. Seeing the end result is cool but actually watching them make the changes is kind of boring. I prefer the shows where they’re looking at places that are already done. I have pretty modern tastes so I don’t really like the older homes, but I like the newer ones with updated kitchens and big kitchens. Everyone seems to have their own tastes, though. Some people really want the older style and want to make changes themselves or just want that style. Not me. I wouldn’t get along with some of the people on those shows at all. Our tastes are too different. I guess that’s why there are so many different styles of houses, though, because everybody wants something different and if everything was cookie cutter that wouldn’t be any fun now would it?
