LOS ANGELES CA – OK, here’s the pitch. You’re a first-time home seller; that buying thing has been so-o-o-o done to death already. And you’re located in the eight-county Philadelphia area. And you want to be on television in one of those prime-time reality shows.
Here’s your chance for 15 minutes – no, wait, make that a half-hour – of fame.
HGTV – the Scripps broadcasting network known for hits like “Designers Portfolio” and “Rate My Space” – is preparing to air a new program called “My First Sale,” and says it’s “looking for fun, high-energy people who are just starting the process of selling their first place” in the “Philadelphia metro area.”
“We’ll be there to capture all the trials and tribulations, stress and success of prepping for sale, pricing, negotiating, and ultimately selling a home for the first time,” the program’s creators, High Noon Entertainment, said in a news report carried Monday (Sept. 21, 2009) by Fwix.com.
Ideal candidates, according to High Noon’s Cindy Baggish, will be “motivated, financially candid people who want to share the experience and the purchase details” with HGTV and its audience. Singles, couples and families all are welcome to apply.
Home sellers who participate in the program will receive a DVD copy of the episode in which they appear, as will real estate agents involved in the deal-making. Taping is scheduled to begin this fall and will continue through Spring 2010.
Interested? Request an application from Baggish via e-mail, or call her at 303-712-3093.
