Property shows for your viewing pleasure
A year into what is probably the world’s longest lockdown due to the pandemic and you’ve run out of TV shows to watch. You find yourself mindlessly scrolling through YouTube, Netflix and all your other streaming platforms but nothing seems appealing. Let us help you with that dilemma. Don’t blame us though if you get hooked.
From giving us a look inside some of the world’s multimillion dollar homes to showing us what it takes to get these off the market, here are some shows that feature some of the fanciest real estate listings one can get.
Secret Lives of the Super Rich
CNBC OnDemand / Apple TV and Amazon Prime / Youtube.com/SLSR
Take a virtual tour of some of the world’s most expensive mega mansions on “Secret Lives of the Super Rich.” The CNBC series gives an exclusive peek at the charmed, swanky lives of some of the wealthiest people on the planet.
Feast your eyes on a colossal home in Los Angeles, California, that’s on the market for a jaw-dropping $100 million. The 71,000 sq ft house has automatic glass doors and windows, a cigar and wine-tasting room, a 25-seater movie theater, two-lane bowling alley, a spa, a putting green, tennis court, a waterfall that goes directly into an 80-ft infinity pool, 12 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms. (Is this even a house still?)
Even those gorgeous, upscale homes can’t just sell by themselves. Reality series “Selling Sunset” features the agents of real estate brokerage firm The Oppenheim Group and how they go about the nitty-gritty of showing and selling homes—with a sprinkling of juicy personal drama on the side. The show first aired in March 2019 and is now on its third season.
Million Dollar Beach House
Go window-shopping for your dream vacation home in The Hamptons on “Million Dollar Beach House.” Featuring a group of young—and high-reaching—real estate agents from Nest Seekers International, the show takes us around the US seaside resort that’s a favored summer destination among New York’s rich and famous.
Remember the good old days when we could travel? How we’d get lost browsing through pages and pages on Airbnb, searching for that rental that is not only accessible and budget-friendly but also cool and nice-looking. “Stay Here” follows interior designer Genevieve Gorder and real estate broker Peter Lorimer as they help homeowners transform their living spaces into attractive short-term rental homes.
Watch how a historical 1884 firehouse in Washington, D.C., is fixed up into a warm and cozy home with lots of rental potential without losing the story that it holds. You can even pick up a thing or two from Gorder and Lorimer while they help a Seattle couple market their houseboat to be more appealing to vacationers.
