Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

This show is probably the most well-known house remodeling show ever even to those who aren't familiar with it. The original program ran for almost 10 years (between 2003-2012), but the show was so popular that it aired again in February this year with a new season.

The show transformed the home of families who suffered some kind of tragedy or would not have been able to afford a remodeling, thereby brining huge happiness into their lives. These families said goodbye to their old home, then moved out of there for a while, only to return to their reborn home, which was first seen after uttering the famous "Move that Bus" line.

Love It or List It

The formula of the show is simple, given a house and a couple (at least most of the time) who are unable to decide whether to sell their home and relocate or transform the existing one into something like they desire. The couple has a specific budget for both scenarios.

It is up to the two presenters to represent each case. Hilary assesses how to keep the house and remodel it within the given budget so that they won't need to sell it. Meanwhile, David is looking for the perfect property for them to sell.
