Baltimore real estate on the small screen
If you like real-estate-related television, this is your week.
"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is in town to build a new home for a nonprofit that provides a group-home setting for boys and girls. Excel Homes, which is coordinating the work with the Maryland Community Builders' Foundation, is still looking for skilled volunteers.
The show is known for providing "over-the-top living spaces," as reporter John-John Williams IV points out. Even so, this one will be a record for the series -- more than 11,000 square feet.
Meanwhile, Baltimore residents Jen and Joe Di Mattina were just on HGTV's "Bang for Your Buck" as part of a "compare these kitchen renovations" episode. Darned if I can find the actual episode online, but neighbor Matt Gonter reports that their kitchen was judged the best of the three. (UPDATE: Here it is. Thanks, Grant!)
HGTV comes to Baltimore on a semi-regular basis. (Here's a local example from "Real Estate Intervention.")
Any other real estate reality television shows shining a light on our neck of the woods?
