Can You Guess Which House These People On "House Hunters" Picked?

Three houses, but only one will become a home.

Posted on

1. Tammy and Troy — Provo, Utah

HGTV

Tammy and Troy have a budget of between $150,000 and $180,000.

Their wish list includes:

• Three bedrooms

• A white kitchen with a big pantry

• A basement

• She wants a single-family home with projects, while he wants a move-in ready townhouse

House 1

The first home is a 3 bed, 2 bath condo listed for $177,000. They like the garage and vaulted ceilings, but Tammy wishes it were single-family and they both agree that they'd like to have more of a yard.

House 2

Listed at $128,000, the next option is a 3 bed, 2.5 bath townhouse — but it's a short sale, which makes them worried. It doesn't have a basement, but it does have a lot of nice upgrades.

House 3

Their final choice is the only single-family home they saw, and it's a 3 bed, 1.5 bath fixer listed at $160,000. It is the largest of all of the properties they've looked at and has a good basement, but needs updates.

  1. So which house did they pick?

    House 2!

    It took them six months to get the short sale, but they're happy they did. Since the house itself didn't have any projects for Tammy, they've been fixing up furniture together. And despite it being a townhouse, she agrees that this property feels spacious and comfortable.

    Although Joshua had to compromise a bit on the music room, he and Tracy are thrilled with their new home. They love the master bedroom and all the space it provides, which is a good thing, because they just found out Tracy is pregnant!

3. James and Deanna — Seattle

HGTV

This couple has a budget of $450,000.

Their wish list includes:

• Four bedrooms

• Space for their growing family (and dog)

• Good cell phone/internet connection for work

House 1

This model home has 4 beds, 2.5 baths, and costs $460,000. The curb appeal could be better, and the price is steep, but they like the upgrade potential and its fiberoptic network for tech products.

    House 1!

    Although pricey, they ended up choosing House 1 — although without any of the upgrades that could have bumped the cost up even more. The yard is small, but there are plenty of parks and trails nearby for the dog.

House 2

Their second choice is a 2 bed, 2 bath walk-up apartment listed at $1.35 million. The space is great and large, but the office is actually a separate room located three floors above the apartment itself.

    Jayne and Edouard went over budget, but got a view of the Eiffel Tower in exchange. Jayne's separate office space is growing on her, as it provides good privacy. Together, the two have added a puppy to their household and love taking walks around the neighborhood with him.

5. Scribner and Amanda — Chicago

HGTV

Scribner and Amanda want a place with a "young, hip vibe" in their $350,000 budget.

Their wish list includes:

• An updated kitchen

• A backyard for raising chickens

House 3

The final home isn't in their preferred neighborhood, but at $239,000, this 3 bed, 2 bath home is the cheapest option. The bedrooms are small and there's nowhere to raise chickens, but it does have an income suite.

  1. Did they go with House 1, 2, or 3?

    They ended up having to go a bit over list price (paying $352,500), but Scribner and Amanda love House 1. He's a huge fan of the kitchen, and she's glad that they spruced up the outside to give it some extra charm. Plus, they got a couple chickens to start their urban farming endeavor.
