A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series highlights the emotional and financial challenges that come with making home renovation and purchasing decisions.
Positive Role Models
Middle- to upper-middle-class homeowners -- almost always couples, of various family types (blended families, same-sex couples, retired folks, etc.) -- are the focus of the show. Some folks are easier to work with than others.
Violence & Scariness
Mild arguments often break out between homeowners and the hosts. Occasionally Hilary gets into heated arguments with her team.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Love It or List It is a real estate show designed for adults, but with almost no issues of concern for kids. There are some occasional arguments and references to drinking, but it's pretty mild overall. This being said kids probably won't be clamoring to see it.
Is It Any Good?
The fun series addresses some of the emotional and financial challenges homeowners face when making renovation and home-buying decisions. Love It or List It also highlights the kinds of things that people must factor in when upgrading a home, and offers some perspective on how these renovations can factor into purchasing a more desirable one later.
Some of the interactions between the hosts and the homeowners seem rehearsed, especially when they are touring differing homes. Furthermore, some of the homeowners' expectations seem a little irrational to be real. Folks interested in real estate and renovation may find it interesting, but kids won't find much here.
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.
