Top Real Estate Shows on Netflix USA

1. Stay Here

StarringGenevieve Gorder,
Peter Lorimer
ProducerMeredith Wright

Interior Designer Genevieve Gorder and real estate expert Peter Lorimer have won the hearts of millions as they team up to turn short-term property rentals into 5-star money-making showstoppers.

At first, you might feel that the show is based on the same old formula: A person has a property, wants to renovate it but doesn’t have the means, and gets on a TV show to make his/her dream come true. And while most of it is true, with each episode, you will understand that it is much more than an ordinary home renovation series.

The show is addictive, quick-paced, and funny and features transformations that will make your jaw drop. Each episode is based on a different setting and property type. It shifts dramatically from a houseboat in Seattle, Washington, in one episode, to a brownstone in Brooklyn, New York, in another, to even a firehouse in Washington, DC, lending viewers a wide array of options.

The only downside to the show is that it fails to give the viewers a clear picture of the money involved. How much did the owner invest? How much was on the shoemakers? All of these questions remain unanswered. The show enjoys a 7.5 rating on IMDB and has eight episodes in the house garden genre of reality TV.

This reality TV show was released on August 10, 2022, and has eight episodes. The show’s cast includes Danielle Brooks (Host), Adair Curtis (Interior Designer), Nick Cutsumpas (Exterior Decorator), and Paige Mobley (Designer- Special Projects).

The show is unlike any other home renovation show on tv; this show eliminates the long, dragged-out renovation processes. These four cast members plan the makeover up to three months in advance and then do the needful accompanied by a massive crew on the day of the episode’s shooting in 12 hours.

Though Instant Dream House is similar to other reality shows in many ways, it gets its edge because the renovations are completed within the stipulated time. There has been skepticism around the show regarding whether the work on a home was completed within 12 hours, as claimed. However, the cast disregarded all rumors on their social media handles.

Most of the show’s cast has been seen in other shows too. The episodes are 40-47 minutes long and quite engaging.

Watch John Weisbarth and Zack turn tiny spaces into full-functioning houses with Tiny House Nation!

Tiny House Nation aired on July 9, 2014, on the FYI network. This American series has two volumes on Netflix, each containing seven 30-minute episodes. Unfortunately, the series has five seasons, so you will have to find the other three seasons elsewhere than Netflix.

That is precisely what the show is about. The redesign challenges due to the lack of space bring out the best in the two hosts. Tiny House Nation is more of an emotional journey into what you truly value in life and then making space for that.
