Are you in the market for a new home in the Waco areas, just starting your search or trying to narrow down your choices on which one to buy? Is the home you're interested in, but have not yet bought, in your dream location and neighborhood: close to your job, near a great school for your children, but sadly that’s all you love about your potential home?

We have your answer! A new HGTV pilot brings our remodeling, design & real estate pros in to help you figure out exactly which home (and why) to buy – and then help you fix it! With our experts' vision, we’ll help you renovate and design the deal killers so that it becomes the right house in the right location!!
Homeowners must be able to financially contribute to the makeover.
