New 'House Hunters' Series Sets Sights on a Youthful Audience

Based on HGTV's latest House Hunters spinoff, it appears that we may be entering a young-buyer's market. Very young.

Quick trivia question: Just how many episodes of HGTV's House Hunters are there in the universe? Well, I'd tell you the answer, but I'm not 100 percent sure that even we know. Consider this: The series has been around since the last millennium (literally), and there have so far been somewhere in the neighborhood of 130 individual "seasons" — typically with 13 episodes or so in each. So well over 1500 episodes, let’s just say.

And that doesn't even take into account the various spinoffs, specials, permutations and pilots — House Hunters International, House Hunters on Vacation, House Hunters Renovation, House Hunters RV, House Hunters: Where Are They Now?, House Hunters Off the Grid, House Hunters: Outside the Box... (That, by the way, is by no means an exhaustive list.)

You can rest assured that creative minds are forever pushing the envelope, coming up with new, fresh and original takes on the demonstrably proven formula of property-search television. If there’s one thing we know, it's that people love to watch other people search for the perfect place to live. (Not to mention occasionally snipe, argue and disagree about it.) And there is, after all, a great big world out there. And the grass is always greener, and the search never ends and...well, enough with the clichés.

Even given all that, you can imagine that it's sometimes a challenge to tap wellsprings of originality when it comes to something that is, by its very nature somewhat formulaic — even if it is undeniably a winning formula.

To that end, we've got  something for you that you likely haven't seen on HGTV before. Let's call it a new and youthful perspective on the House Hunters phenomenon. And as Art Linkletter — one of the giants of early television — rightly pointed out, kids do say the darndest things.

Okay, truth time. So don't expect to see this exact series on our new network lineup. (At least not yet.) But we do have a brand new season of House Hunters Family — with real famlies (kids included) on real house hunts. And as you might imagine, the kids are not shy about speaking their minds. So if you thought the finicky adult clients on House Hunters make things interesting for real estate agents, just you wait.
