What Is Property Virgins About?
Each episode runs 30 minutes, including commercials. At the beginning of each show, the host meets the prospective buyers in their desired neighborhood and asks them to guess the value of a house they like. The value of that house is usually above the customers' price range, prompting the host to reassure them that she will try to find a home in another neighborhood that meets the buyers' desired criteria. She usually asks the buyers to list some of the features they want in their new home, in order to give her a better idea of what to look for
First-time home buyers are guided through the treacherous and sometimes emotionally exhausting shoals of the process and are given candid advice on what it takes to find the right property -- and why buying a "dream home" can turn into a nightmare unless the money part of the equation adds up.
Season one of Property Virgins focused exclusively on home buyers in the Greater Toronto Area. Subsequent seasons of the show have included both Toronto and major metropolitan areas in the United States, such as Dallas, Cincinnati, Miami, Washington, D.C., Richmond, Austin, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Boston, and San Diego.
If the clients choose to purchase one of the properties, the host helps them decide on an offer and negotiate a contract. She also helps her clients understand other aspects of home buying and ownership, such as bidding wars, homeowners' association fees, down payments, closing costs, home inspections, and even renovations. The closing process, however, is not shown.
'Property Virgins' previously aired on HGTV network in the US. Last episode of the series aired on December 7, 2013.
