A great show for all homeowners....the first "reality"
28 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

concept show that actually helps the audience, gives us useful information and has lasted for over 20 years on TV.

I have recently watched the "Boston" series, where homeowners can make $2,000.00 per month renting their property, so renovating an historic brownstone from 1875 is well worth it. Having lived in Boston, I can assert that the architecture and surroundings are both unique and storybook-like; trees on Commonwealth Avenue and at the Boston Public Garden are preserved, as opposed to NY or other large sprawling metropolitan areas.

While aspects of the show are sometimes a bit technical, this show is well worth it for anyone who wishes to improve the quality of their home, and appreciate its value. This show and "Sell this House" (regularly shown on A&E cable) are the ONLY two reality shows I watch; they are both educational and interesting. Highly recommended. 9/10.
