Overview

Has the love affair with your home hit a roadblock? Should you start seeing other houses? Will you love your home again? Or, will you list it?

Love It Or List It is the critically acclaimed, internationally adored, real estate based reality show that finds homeowners at a crossroads when it comes to the future of their house. Changes in family dynamics combined with time creates a scenario where a family’s needs have outgrown the function of their house, splitting the couple down the middle: one person wants to renovate the house to fix the dysfunction and create their forever home, while the other see’s no end to the issues and wants only one thing- out!

Enter our ever feisty and competitive hosts, designer Hilary Farr and realtor David Visentine, who’s trademark banter and one-upmanship fuels this family’s journey along their emotional and often hilarious road. After being presented with a list of “must have’s” and a budget to work with, both hosts head out on parallel journeys, in an effort to sway the couple to their side.

Hilary is convinced she can use her renovation budget to transform their current home into the stunning and functional space of their dreams, while David knows he can turn his house-hunting budget into a worry free move to a different home that suites them perfectly!

But if structural realities and budgetary constraints threaten Hilary’s ability to complete every renovation on her list, or unrealistic demands and pricey neighbourhoods prevent David from finding the perfect combination of house, location and budget, emotions will run high for our homeowners!

But when the tears clear and the heated, candid conversations come to an end one thing is certain: Forced to weigh their options between David’s spectacular new home or Hilary’s inspired re-imagining of their old one, the hosts and audience alike will be on the edges of their seats desperate to hear the homeowners decision: Will they love it?
