For a world that is bustling, home can often prove to be the perfect shelter. HGTV’s popular show 'Love it or List It' ensures that your home is perfect. One way or another. The show portrays the dichotomy of making the transition to a new home, or to choosing and embracing an updated version of their old home — with the help of HGTV hosts, interior designer Hilary Farr and real estate agent David Visentin. 

According to HGTV's description, "While interior designer Hilary Farr gives the old home a major facelift, real estate agent David Visentin is always on the lookout for new properties." Running since 2008, ‘Love It or List It’ is one of the biggest hits in the network's history.

How much does it cost to feature on HGTV’s ‘Love It or List It’?

Who wouldn’t want to be a part of ‘Love It or List it’, one of the most loved renovation shows? Even though a lot of people might think that to appear on the show, the hosts have to pay a certain fee, the reality is the contrary. HGTV does not charge the hosts for them to appear on screen but makes sure that they have a house that needs to be renovated and can spare a $100,000 renovation budget. This requirement was previously $50,000 and then $75,000. To address a peeking question, no, the people/homeowners don't get paid to appear on the show either.

Other rules include homeowners should be willing to move out of their house for the duration of the renovation and shoot and be outgoing, fun, enthusiastic homeowners and available to be on camera for up to seven weekdays of filming, spread over 6 to 8 weeks.
