‘Property Brothers: Forever Homes’ Season 3 Episode 6: Fans want renovations that help low-income households
The Scott brothers wowed the audience once again with a house renovation in an upscale residential area in Toronto and fans think that it’s time they look at less privileged neighborhoods as well
Every time, Drew and Jonathan Scott take up a project, they make sure to leave the homeowners and the viewers spellbound. So far, most of their renovation work on the show have revolved around major cities and urban areas. Sometimes, they even visit the same city multiple times and pick up a home that they could turn around.
For instance, Season 3 Episode 6 ‘A Home Fit for Superheroes’ was also about redefining a Toronto home for young couple Waylon and Adam. Not that fans are not thrilled by the outcome, they feel that now it’s time for the home renovation experts to widen their scope and be more inclusive. While it is great to see luxurious transformations and how homeowners get a do-over on their house with high-budget repairs and restorations, some people think that it would also be nice to see how the same effect could be brought to homes for low-income groups and challenged urban neighborhoods.
Some fans took to Twitter and addressed the concern. One fan, who thinks that targeting those who do not have that kind of budget and yet wish to have a dream home, posted, “If the #PropertyBrothers/#HGTV really wanted to attract more viewers & increase ratings, how about beautifying urban/low-income areas for current residents. The impact would hit harder.”
Another fan seconded, saying, “Pardon my poverty-stricken perspective, but these families on #PropertyBrothers who want their homes renovated really convince themselves that their [wants] are their [needs]. I dream of some of their 'befores'.”
A homeowner from Chicago, who has lost his house during the current Covid-19 pandemic, hopes for the same. “When you lose the house, you had your hopes set on... I wish the #PropertyBrothers worked around Chicago so that @MrDrewScott @MrSilverScott could help us find our dream home!! All this @hgtv quarantine binging has us doing some wishful thinking!” he said.
In the latest (May 20) episode of ‘Forever Home’, brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott helped a young couple settle down in their newly bought Toronto home by renovating it for $1,60,000.
‘Property Brothers: Forever Home’ Season 3 now airs every Wednesday night at 9 pm/ 8c on HGTV. Check your local listings for the latest updates and information.
