It sounds like a dream come true: having your favorite real estate reality TV stars come in and redecorate, refurnish, and even substantially remodel your home—sometimes even for free! But here’s the rub: What homeowners don’t know could potentially cost them thousands later on.
That’s because when folks agree to allow their home to star in a reality show, they often lose sight of the fact that they’re no longer in complete control of what happens to the home—and they may not like the end results. Also, work is often rushed to accommodate tight production schedules. And when mistakes are made, homeowners might be responsible for paying to fix them.
Read the fine print, folks!
