Interesting home buying show probably won't appeal to kids.

Watch it every night.

I'm in love with this show. I love how they're not being fools when choosing houses, they actually have GOOD reasons for picking the houses they want. The houses are generally nice, no too fancy, not too crappy, just right. I just LOVE this show, it is just perfect, I just love EVERYTHING about it.

Definatly appropriate

Apropriate for anybody. But young kids aren't really interested.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (16):

House Hunters offers viewers the chance to see what goes into the complicated home-buying process -- from finding affordable properties and qualifying for mortgages to negotiating details like closing costs. It also highlights property values in different regions of the country.

While, there's not really any age-inappropriate content in the show, the subject matter probably won't interest most kids. But viewers thinking about buying a home may find the series useful.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
