LOVE IT OR LIST IT AUSTRALIA
Brand new locally-produced property series for Lifestyle.
Foxtel announce today the commissioning of a new locally-produced property show, Love It or List It. Already a hugely successful global franchise, the all-Australian version of the show will pair up Lifestyle’s much-loved real estate expert Andrew Winter and esteemed interior designer Neale Whitaker as they help homeowners decide whether to keep their newly-renovated home, or sell it.
“We are thrilled to announce Andrew and Neale as hosts,” says General Manager of Lifestyle Channels Hannah Barnes. “When we put them together we were blown away by their chemistry and competitive comradery. The beauty of this format is that it covers buying, selling and renovation all in one show so viewers can expect to get fantastic advice and tips with a lot of fun and entertainment along the way.”
Currently filming the tenth season of Selling Houses Australia, Andrew Winter relishes the opportunity to sell even more houses saying “Love it or List it eh? No argument from me – list it! Get the move underway – onwards and upwards as they say. The fact the question has even been asked means it should be time to sell. I intend to show homeowners not only properties they would expect to like, but the unexpected too.”
In the ‘Love It’ corner, Neale Whitaker will redesign homes to help them realise their full potential. Using tight budgets and often recycling items already in the house, he will transform the house and hopefully persuade the owners to stay.
“I’m excited to be pitting my wits against Mr Winter,” says Neale. “Moving house is definitely not the only option. Sometimes it makes financial and emotional sense to renovate – especially if you love your home. I’m here to explore the possibilities, push the boundaries and make sure your home’s a keeper!”
Love It or List It will commence filming in 2017, produced by Beyond Productions exclusively for Foxtel’s Lifestyle.
