GTA residents with homes that need renovating are in luck: two TV series are seeking properties to fix up.
Property Brothers: Forever Home has been airing since June 3 on HGTV Canada (and since May 29 in the U.S.) and has proved so popular that another 12 episodes have been ordered. That means property owners in Woodbridge, North York, Etobicoke and Mississauga have a chance to have their houses transformed by stars Drew and Jonathan Scott.
The production team is looking for homeowners who are “outgoing, energetic, opinionated and fun”; have a need for expert help; a minimum renovation and design budget of $100,000; and up to seven days available for filming, staggered over five to seven weeks.

Meanwhile, the new HGTV Canada series tentatively titled Big Home Overhaul is seeking residents in the GTA, Hamilton and surrounding areas who deserve a major makeover by the network’s star contractors and designers.
The idea is that the work benefit “deserving families” who need a major renovation, whether it’s someone going through hard times or someone who gives back to their community.
The “feel-good renovation series” will be hosted by ET Canada’s Cheryl Hickey and will debut in spring 2020.
