Want a Vacation House for Free?
We're now casting for season two of Vacation House For Free. We are seeking vacation home buyers who aren't afraid of properties that need work!
Properties on the show would be in need of updating and renovation and have values up to about $600,000. Ideal candidates are outgoing, creative, and would set aside around $30,000 to start their renovations. If candidates are selected, the show would supplement that budget to ensure a fabulous finish!
We are looking for couples and families interested in lake homes, mountain homes, getaway homes in popular vacation destinations and even second homes in small charming cities (think Savannah, Ga., or Santa Fe, N.M.). We are especially interested warm-weather beach towns and the great vacation properties you can find there! Shooting will start during winter 2014, so spots that feature less extreme weather are ideal; however we will consider any vacation destination location in the United States (or possibly foreign location) that is truly fabulous!
Participants will work with our producers and host to find and make a property of their dreams into a "home away from home" and one that potential renters will scramble to book for their vacations. Let us help you create a dream vacation home and show you how rentals can pay the costs! If you're a vacation home lover who likes to househunt and is raring to renovate, please email the casting team at email@example.com with a bio about yourselves and the kinds of places you love. If it seems like a good fit for the show, we’ll get back to you immediately.
