10 Reactions House Hunters Fans Know All Too Well

From the opening credits to the final decision, these are the top moments that make House Hunters fans say "What were they thinking?!," as told by real-life Twitter fans. Watch. Talk. Repeat.

When you can't relate to the homeowners' interests. Your hobbies: Binge-watching HGTV and breaking in your couch. 

When the budget seems just a little bit overblown. You think it might be time for a career change. 

Or, the buyers can't agree on what the budget even is. They're looking to spend somewhere between $50,000 and $500,000.

When the potential buyers get what they asked for...and still aren't happy. Granite countertops, room for entertaining and under budget? Nope, they're not having it.

When you don't understand the buyers' criteria. Nothing on the left side of the street? Only odd-numbered houses? Sure, totally reasonable. 

And, you kinda question their priorities. Guest rooms are great, but do you need 5 of them? 

Sometimes buyers get a little too optimistic...

...and you wonder what they're thinking

Then they don't even pick your favorite house. It's like they have to live there or something. THE NERVE. 

But, when the journey ends...it's time for another 30-minute emotional roller coaster. You can stop watching anytime you want, right? RIGHT.
