What You Get For The Money is a real estate series that compares three different properties in three different parts of the country, but they’re all valued at the same price point. If you’ve ever wondered how much bang for your buck you get in other housing markets, this show delivers.  From sprawling ranch houses to waterfront properties, modern and contemporary new builds to historic character homes, it’s a cross country real estate tour where homeowners open their doors and let the viewers in. The style, size and locations of each house may be different, but pride of ownership is the same – they love their home and we find out why.  300 thousand, 400 thousand, 700 thousand and up.

26 July – 01 Aug: Episode 5

A tour of $800,000 homes across the nation begins in Dallas, TX, where a couple’s home becomes their private oasis after a long work day. Located in a mature area, their floor-to-ceiling windows provide nature views and a feeling of living in a tree house. Then on the coast in St. Augustine, FL, a contractor builds his family home and maximizes a corner lot adding a guest house and a pool.  By installing patio doors to the yard and a glass garage door on the guest house, he creates the perfect mix of indoor/outdoor living. And in Kalamazoo, MI, a couple buys their dream home – a Frank Lloyd Wright original. After a year of restoration, the mid-century home has been returned to its original glory. Six quick tours of additional $800,000 properties include a modern lakefront property in Eagle, ID with cantilevered deck over the water, and a Madison, WI home from Frank Lloyd Wright’s American System era, that has been restored and updated for modern living.

Episode 6

From around the country, the variety of $300,000 properties is showcased, starting in Milwaukee,

WI, where a family shows us why their midcentury home is called the upside down house. They love this period so much, they updated their kitchen with a retro 70s design. In Beaufort, SC, a military family makes move number 10 into a 3-story low country home, complete with two wrap around porches, and they convert a third level attic space into their daughter’s retreat.  Then the charm of a century craftsman home in Corpus Christ, TX, starts outside with a white picket fence.  And inside, updates are done, including a second floor addition with a large master suite, but the character is maintained. Six other properties in this price range are featured, including a 70s house in Jacksonville, FL with updated kitchen, and original vaulted ceilings from this era. Up the coast in Bangor, ME, a 3,200 square foot character home is over 100 years old, with 5 bedrooms and sits on an elevated lot.
