'Love it or List it' sees a mother-son duo decide on listing their house and fans can't believe he gets a say in this
'Love it or List it' returned to HGTV for an all-new episode on Monday night and this week it was a challenge for space and budget.
Hilary Farr and David Visentin had a challenge up their sleeve this week with the homeowners and their requirements, but as usual, they made it work somehow. But that was not the only thing that stood out this week. This week the decision was taken by a single mother and her eldest son. While this is not something we see often on the series, fans are having mixed reactions with the son being the decision-maker.
Nanika and her eldest son Isaiah were both looking for different things, while Nanika had her hopes set on David finding them a new house, Isaiah believed that Hilary could give them what they want in their old house itself.
Their current house had three bedrooms and two bathrooms. They wanted four bedrooms, so Hilary will not have to share her room with her youngest son, they wanted an open kitchen space, more storage, and an even bigger kitchen. The budget for the renovation was $75,000 and the budget for the new house was $2,50,000.
It was definitely a challenge, but David managed to find them a house suitable to their needs, and even though it was a tad over budget the family decided to list their house. Taking to Twitter fans are having mixed reactions about the son having a major say when it comes to making the decision.
Some fans said that it was a good thing that Nanika had her son with her, while some others refused saying the son doesn't get a say in the decision making because he isn't the one putting the money in.
"Watching @LoveItorListIt and this son is the greatest child ever. He’s a great young man and very smart. #loveitorlistit," a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, "Wait.. mom & son are deciding? Alrighty then.. lol #LoveitorListit."
"How you gonna have a child in the decision on whether you buy or sell your house? Do they put in on the mortgage? Nah yo. Not even for TV. AND Mom shares a room w/ the youngest!!! HELL NAH! #LoveItOrListIt," a fan shared.
