We are all guilty of watching at least one reality TV show that we loved. Reality TV is actually the perfect escape from the monotony of regular things. One genre of reality TV that makes a regular and tedious activity more fun is real estate.
Be it shows about flipping houses or buying them, the real estate reality TV genre is on the rise and has become more popular than the old overused dating genre.
Especially since the rise of streaming services, binge-ing shows has become a crowd favourite activity. Thus, we have curated a list of 7 Top Binge-Worthy Real Estate Shows on OTT platforms. The list is in no particular order.
So if you’re looking for a good binge-worthy real show for the weekend, we can assure you that none of the series listed below will disappoint.
Selling Sunsets is the gateway to real estate reality TV. This show has it all, million-dollar listings, drama, celebrities, love, over the top events, and more. It’s most probably one of the most ridiculously unreal portrayals of the real estate world but it’s for sure entertaining to watch.
Most shows on this list are those that will be enjoyed by home hunting or renovation enthusiasts, but Selling Sunsets is a show for anyone who has even the slightest interest in reality TV.
Million Dollar Listing
Million Dollar Listing is another show that blurs the line between the personal and professional lives of the real estate agents it follows. The show was originally based in Los Angeles but the success caused producers to produce spin-offs based in New York, Miami, and San Francisco.
However, real estate agents don’t really spend as much time bickering as they do on this show.
Tiny House Nation
Tiny House Nation is a non-typical typical home renovation and construction show. It’s non-typical because the tiny house movement is comparatively new and has been a refreshing and welcomed change from traditional homes. The show also gives you great ideas to use smaller spaces within your home to their optimal capacity and configuration.
The show is a typical home renovation and construction show because the hosts, John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin, follow the same uplifting and teaching model of construction and renovation that real estate reality TV has been following.
House Hunters falls under the category of some of the most realistic reality TV shows when it comes to real estate. The show follows the journey of property buyers’ as they select amongst three options. It shows that every house has its pros and cons, unlike some other shows that only portray a divine connection between the buyer and the home they decide to buy.
The show has had a few spin-offs like House Hunters: Million Dollar Homes, House Hunters: Vacation, House Hunters: International, and House Hunters: Renovation.
The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes
Hosts Caroline Quentin and Piers Taylor travel across the globe to see some amazing marvels of modern architecture that some people call home. This mini docu-series is also a perfect weekend binge due to its length. With just 16 episodes spread over two seasons, you’ll finish this series in no time.
In addition, Caroline and Piers’ chemistry is an added bonus as you watch this show.
Grand Designs is an amazing show to binge especially if you’re interested in home decor. If your interest in home decor and design is at 30%, this show is sure to push it past 100%. The show’s host Kevin McCloud follows people who are driven to construct their dream homes and are inspired by modern design, tech, sustainability, views etc.
The homeowners on this show are definitely not your normal homeowners as they go above and beyond and even get their own hands dirty just to see their home vision come alive.
Do you like AirBnBs? We all do! But how do you convert a home into a place where people would want to come and stay? That’s what Genevieve Gorder and Peter Lorimer are teaching the people homeowners that come onto the show Stay Here.
They teach homeowners how to take their ‘normal’ property and turn it into a home with a unique USP that draws customers from all over the world.
These eight shows are available to stream online and are some of the best reality TV shows, even if compared with those outside the real estate genre. The list above is in no particular order.
