The 10 Top Real Estate Shows to Binge-Watch Right Now

If you're thinking about becoming a real estate agent, enjoy TV shows about people in the industry, or simply love looking at incredible homes, there are some amazing real estate shows out there that might delight you. 

From flipping houses to showing high-end, million-dollar mansions, these real estate shows are sure to keep you inspired. 

1. Fixer Upper 

If you're thinking about purchasing a fixer upper with the intent to renovate and rent it, this HGTV show might give you some great ideas. Married couple Chip and Joanna Gaines have a redecoration and renovation business. If you've ever wondered what it's like to make the old new again, this show will be simultaneously informative and entertaining.

They are faced with homes that are in need of a serious makeover, but somehow they always manage to make them sparkle. Home improvement is the name of this game. You can watch Fixer Upper on Amazon Prime. 

2. Flip or Flop

If you’re interested in flipping houses, you'll love Flip or Flop. Season 11 is especially interesting; hosts Christina and Tarek El Moussa are exes, working together to flip homes. What could possibly go wrong? 

You'll have to see if these flippers manage to get along as business partners and whether or not their properties flop. You can catch this show on Amazon Prime as well.

3. Million Dollar Listing

When you're dealing with million-dollar homes, the stakes are incredibly high: These real estate agents lead stressful lives because there is so much money on the line. 

In addition to the stress of selling luxury homes and the high sale prices, the social dynamics of the workplace are simultaneously a thrill and a stress point for many of the show’s agents. Josh Flagg, for instance, is willing to travel far and wide to make a record-breaking sale, but he must team up with his nemesis, Josh Altman, in order to make it happen. Will these two be able to put aside their differences long enough to become successful business partners, or will their personal grudges get in the way of their potential paycheck? Million Dollar Listing is available on Bravo through Amazon Prime, Peacock, and Apple TV. 

4. Selling Sunset

Selling Sunset is a seriously interesting series which documents the ups and downs of office dynamics at a luxury California real estate brokerage called The Oppenheim Group. It follows a team of strong and successful women as they sell luxury homes in Los Angeles. This program is a wonderful source of entertainment, and the houses shown are absolutely gorgeous. Christine is definitely the more experienced agent in the office, whereas Chrishell is the newbie, and the competition is only heating up. You can catch all three seasons on Netflix.

5. House Hunters 

Purchasing a home is a majorly stressful and emotional event, especially if the two people who are about to live together for the rest of their lives have very different preferences. House Hunters brings you into a couple’s home search each episode, and it’s a simultaneously touching and entertaining show. You can watch the processes couples, individuals, and families go through as they decide where to plant roots and the compromises they’ll need to make to find their dream property. You can catch House Hunters on Hulu.

6. Property Brothers

This Canadian TV show is excellent. Twin brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott aim to help couples find homes that need some tender love and care before transforming them into dream abodes. Needless to say, their clients are usually thrilled, and the transformations are absolutely jaw-dropping. You can watch this series on Hulu. 

7. Tiny House Nation 

Tiny House Nation is an amazing show that covers some of the most incredible tiny homes in the U.S. The ever-charming Zack Giffin and John Weisbarth are a wonderful, entertaining, and talented couple. If you yearn for a place that's affordable, creatively arranged, and easy to clean, this is the show for you — their storage hacks are absolutely ingenious. You can observe the brilliant duo in action on Netflix

8. Interior Design Masters 

The interior of a property is arguably more important than its exterior, since most residents plan to live in one location for a long time and need to feel comfortable. This competition-style series is so much fun to watch as ten aspiring interior designers show off their skills in order to win a life-changing contract. The stakes are high, the interiors they design are totally gorgeous, and it's hosted by the fabulously witty Alan Carr. You can watch their amazing (and some not-so-great) ideas come to life on Netflix

9. My First Place 

My First Place follows first-time homebuyers through the house-hunting rollercoaster until they finally see their dreams come to fruition when they finally receive their house keys. Host Jill Cordes often has to be brutally honest with couples, particularly when their dream home is sadly above their price range. This program is informative and often entertaining. You can catch it on Amazon Prime.

10. The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes 

If you are a fan of unique architecture, you will love The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes. For instance, this masterpiece is an incredible, open concept home. Delve into the world of beautiful, unconventional homes with the lovely Piers Taylor and Caroline Quentin. You can watch this brilliant series on Netflix.  

You don’t have to be considering a career as a real estate agent to love TV shows about the industry. Not only do these programs make for great television, they help inspire their audience to think differently about both the real estate industry and their personal abode. So put on some comfortable pants, pop some popcorn, and settle in for some dramatized real estate goodness today.
