HGTV takes advantage of the convenience of home improvement shows to become an entire network dedicated to real estate shows. There is certainly some form of charm in seeing a run down, boring house being converted into something that could be taken out of an art book. Perhaps it is the nature of OCD within each of us that home improvement shows “fixing” by turning evil into good or unclean into tidy. While home improvement shows are of various kinds, they typically revolve around people’s primary residential property. However, vacation homes are a whole different ball game. This is exactly what the “Vacation Home Rules” address.
Vacation homes have totally different requirements. Also, those seen on TV or in other places can be quite pious. Therefore, HGTV’s âVacation Home Rulesâ show how the dream vacation home can be achieved at minimal cost. The show depicts a common roadmap that can be used to convert boring homes into full-fledged, photogenic vacation homes.
The show is hosted by real estate expert Scott McGillivray. He has several years of experience in real estate and renovations to his credit which he puts to good use in the show. Other shows he has appeared on include “Buyers Bootcamp”, “Scott’s House Call”, “Canada’s Handyman Challenge” and “Home to Win”. The full title of âVacation Home Rulesâ is âScott’s Vacation Home Rulesâ.
