Are you looking for, or have you recently purchased, a new home? Imagine being able to make your most important financial decision with the help of a trusted ally…Sarah Richardson! The bonus?

Here’s how it works:
•We are seeking motivated homebuyers who will receive a renovation or design makeover from HGTV's top design talent, Sarah Richardson.
•Each makeover will have a value of at least $25,000 in products and design services, and will be conducted in a short period of time depending on the scope of work (approx 2-8 weeks).
•The homebuyers will need to contribute a minimum of $10,000 to the project.
•To be eligible, homes must be located in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area).
•We are seeking dramatic "befores" as the backdrop for TV-worthy "afters."

•We are seeking interesting spaces with loads of character and “great bones”, which can be transformed through re-decoration or light renovation (no extensive structural work), and home buyers willing to share their real estate and renovation or design adventure on camera.
•The team will consider your taste and style notes when designing your room, but being a fan of Sarah's style is imperative.
•The TV crew needs to have full, unsupervised access to the home throughout the duration of the project and full co-operation of the homeowner.
