In January, we mentioned that two HGTV home renovation shows — Property Brothers: Buying and Selling and Listed Sisters — were casting homeowners here in Nashville. Seems the interest in Nashville real estate isn’t slowing down in the TV world, because we can add another series to the casting-in-Nashville list: the Scott Brothers’ flagship show, plain-old Property Brothers, is looking for Music City families right now too.
If you have cable and/or have ever even accidentally stumbled on HGTV, you’ve almost certainly seen the network’s super-popular Scott twins. But just in case, here’s a primer.
Contractor/real estate agent team Jonathan and Drew Scott have a bunch of home design/renovation/buying-related shows on the network, including the aforementioned Buying and Selling and competition series Brother Vs. Brother. But Property Brothers was the show that launched them into home-and-garden-TV stardom, and it remains one of the network’s highest-rated shows.
The concept of the original Property Brothers is pretty simple: Contractor Jonathan and real estate agent Drew show hopeful homeowners a mix of fixer-uppers that could be imagined into an in-their-budget dream home. Once a winning home is chosen, contractor Jonathan gets to work dream home-ing it out, then it’s revealed, and oohs and ahhs begin.
The show was launched in Canada, so we’ve seen a lot of Toronto homeowners moving through the buying/renovation/reveal process. For the upcoming sixth season, we’ll apparently get to see some Nashvillians.
The show’s casting director gave us a shout, and if you’re considering putting your name in, here’s what she says you need to know.
— looking to buy and renovate a home in or 30 to 40 minutes from Nashville
— have a minimum $70,000 renovation budget, with financing in place
— available for up to 10 days of filming over six to seven weeks
There was no indication that you’re required to be able to tell the Scott brothers apart, but just in case: Jonathan’s usually the one wearing plaid.
To get in the Property Brothers running, you’ll fill out an application with details about you and your family (or, if you’re single, a “sidekick” who’ll do the show with you). Check out and/or fill out the Property Brothers Nashville casting application here.
The Property Brothers folks tell us there are a few weeks left in the casting process, so if you’re intrigued, jump on by.
If you end up making it on the show, please let us know — we’d love to watch some friends on the small screen getting the Property Brothers treatment.
Rather find and buy a home in Nashville without cameras following you around? We’d be thrilled to help — give ACRE a call or send us an email, and let us know what’s on your Nashville-homebuying wish list. Or, if the Property Brothers casting page got you in the mood to fill out a form, we have one of those too.
