60 minutes

When a home no longer suits a family's needs, the homeowners are left with a big dilemma: renovate or sell it? Love It or List It, Too helps undecided homeowners choose. In each hour-long episode, Realtor Todd Talbot and designer Jillian Harris go head-to-head for the homeowners' final choice to stay or go. Todd's expert knowledge of the real estate market helps target affordable listings to prospective buyers, but Jillian is committed to showing homeowners that, within their budget, she can turn their unwanted house into a renovated home they can love. If the owners make the choice to list it, Jillian's hard work adds to the home's resale value. It's a hard call either way. Which choice would you make?

Although I have watched both Love It or List It shows for as long as they have been on and will more than likely continue to do so, the latest episode [1/9/2015] really worked my nerves! I understand that a lot of money had to go to resizing the deck and moving the footers (which was a given), but, come one, the fact that Jillian had trouble reallocating money to give the couple what they needed before undertaking any renovations was unbelievable to me! With $190,000, I repeat, $190,000, the upstairs should have been renovated as well with a functioning bathroom,to say the least! What about options, compromise and or sitting down with the homeowners to come up with viable modifications to achieve a "win/win" scenario, even if camera time is not devoted to this but implied in some fashion? 1st of all, as the homeowner, I would have only given her $120,000 initially (for example), and when she asked for more money, possibly have given her the rest! But then again, I say this about almost episode I watch of either show and am always pleading with the homeowners through the television to "Hold on to some of your money until you find out how much it is going to take to renovate your very old home!" And, what's up with all of the white walls, cabinets and countertops? Cheaper for Jillian, maybe, but at the expense of creative design aesthetic... It seems as if the designers' own agendas take precedence over the desires of the homeowners, so that they can go back in and complete the remaining projects, just in case couples do decide to side with Todd and list their homes! Furthermore, the contrived drama is truly unnecessary since there is enough of it watching Jillian inform the couples of what she is not going to do for them, which is exasperating and more of a distraction than not! I do like watching the design crew transform ordinary rooms into spacious and functioning living areas, but the journey and end results very seldom seem to meet my expectations as a viewer!
