A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series shows how the competitive home auction market works, and the kinds of strategies -- not always positive -- used to make it profitable.
Positive Role Models
Greed is what motivates the buyers. Some of them engage in sneaky tactics to keep others from making money.
Violence & Scariness
Some buyers like to antagonize each other during auctions. Occasionally arguments break out between them, which leads to some yelling and screaming. Frustrated buyers sometimes throw (and smash) phones on the street.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Property Wars will appeal to folks interested in real estate or home flipping, but it isn't geared towards kids at all. Home buyers often insult each other during auctions or get into heated arguments. Some of the buyers also exhibit some sneaky behavior. The show also contains the occasional iffy language ("crap"; stronger words fully bleeped).
Is It Any Good?
Property Wars offers a chance for viewers to see the various tactics real estate buyers employ and the financial risks they take when attempting to break into the property market through housing auctions. It also shows some of the sneaky ways that buyers attempt to keep others from buying homes in specific areas or making a profit, including purposely driving up bids without any desire to purchase the homes.
The series is not really geared towards kids, but folks who are interested in real estate-related television will definitely learn a few things here. Occasional tips offered by auction buyers in-between show segments are helpful too. But if real estate isn't your thing, you probably won't be buying into this series any time soon.
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.
