New HGTV Show Pays Cash For Home Improvement
A woman in Sherman Oaks, California, Kelley Alexander, is participating with the hopes of avoiding foreclosure. As a Chicago Tribune article reports, if she loses, she could also lose her home. While other shows in the past have focused on fixing up a house to sell it for more money this show represents an economic shift where most people are renovating with plans to stay in their homes for the long haul. If you have to do it yourself, you may as well get paid for it. The show is hosted by Drew Lachey and starts May 31.
