TLC premieres Hope for Your Home

kirsten kemp beckerTLC is adding to their real estate reality slate once again with Hope for Your Home. The show, hosted by Kristen Kemp Becker (Property Ladder) will feature families who are trying unsuccessfully to sell their homes. Each half-hour episode will showcase one family facing tough financial circumstances. Kemp Becker will advise the family as to what improvements they can make, a contractor will help them make said improvements, and a real estate agent will come in after and assess the home's value and how quickly it could sell.

While Hope for Your Home sounds informative (especially for families looking to make cost-efficient changes to their properties), it sounds really boring. I find Extreme Home Makeover annoying but at least we get a bunch of quirky personalities ("quirky" is probably the most generous adjective I could think of) and we get "extreme" changes to the homes. It's interesting to see how the team does a complete overhaul on the house. This show? I'm not so sure. What do you think?

Hope for Your Home premieres on Saturday August 9th, at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.

We live in Canada and was wondering about getting help with our home improvements. We bought our home 2 years ago and due to health problems we might loose our home. We cannot afford to fix it up to sell it and need HELP>

HGTV has "Designed to Sell" which was so successful they now have teams in three different parts of the country filming shows. I don't think it will be boring at all.

If it's the uber-hot Kirsten Kemp hosting I'd watch a show about choosing the best sandpaper.
