The sharp-witted and friendly, yet competitive banter that inspires fans who are passionate about home buying/selling will be on full display when hit HGTV series Love It or List It, starring popular designer Hilary Farr and real estate expert David Visentin, returns on Monday, May 7, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The fresh eight episodes will feature the pair as they help homeowners make a difficult decision: love their existing home after Hilary remodels their space or purchase a new house that David finds to better fit the needs of the family.
“I always do my best to accommodate each owner’s list of ‘must haves,’” said Hilary. “I may need to get extra creative depending on my budget, but I know when I finish revamping their home, the owners will love it.”
“I try to take homeowners outside their comfort zone to make the most of their budget and make them see what they could get for their money if they are brave enough to list it,” contended David.
In the premiere episode, Hilary and David will meet a young couple living in an outdated 1970s ranch home previously owned by her late grandmother. Taking on a dramatic redesign, Hilary will create an open floorplan—featuring a cozy fireplace in the living room and a stunning kitchen with an oversized island perfect for entertaining. She’ll also add a functional closet and a bright bathroom with a huge walk-in shower to transform the master bedroom. In the meantime, David will try to convince the couple to put the home on the market and buy a newer property that fulfills their lengthy wish list.
