A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series takes a positive, optimistic approach to finding a dream home. While homebuyers are often reluctant to buy a fixer-upper, the brothers show how hard work and determination can turn dreams into reality. Setbacks are handled rationally.
Positive Role Models
The brothers are extremely likable, polite, and professional at all times, though they occasionally gripe about picky or nagging homebuyers. Potential buyers are middle class folks from all walks of life.
Violence & Scariness
Nothing violent, but there's lots of knocking down walls and breaking apart cabinets and other structures. Renovation mishaps sometimes lead to spark-yielding electrical shorts. Frustrated homebuyers occasionally get short-tempered.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Property Brothers is a real estate and renovation show that offers some information and inspiration about buying, renovating, and even decorating a home. Despite some images of home construction-related logos (Lumber Liquidators, Kenmore, etc.) and an occasional champagne or wine toast, there isn't much to worry about here. It's not the kind of thing kids will clamor for, but parents and kids might enjoy the show together.
Is It Any Good?
Property Brothers offers a fun and interesting wake-up call to viewers who are thinking about purchasing a home by underscoring the actual costs and the many difficult decisions involved in both buying a move-in ready home, and in renovating an outdated one. It also shows how buyers have to be ready to deal with unexpected problems and costs during renovations, especially when dealing with older homes, in order to ensure that that the structures are safe, secure, and up to code.
The brothers are definitely likable, but the show's real entertainment value comes from seeing the fixer-uppers -- which range from old and dirty to hideously ugly -- and then actually looking at the finished product. Homebuyers and homeowners alike may get inspired by what they see here, but ultimately, there isn't much here for kids to get particularly excited about.
