HGTV Eagerly Looking for My First Sale Participants: Figure 1

In May, HGTV began casting for the upcoming second season of My First Sale. UrbanTurf received word from the show's producers this morning that the program has ratcheted up its efforts to find interesting and qualified participants:

My First Sale is looking for fun, high-energy first-time home sellers (and their Realtor!) who are interested in being featured on the show! These homeowners should be very motivated to sell and open to having a camera crew shoot all of the exciting processes and experiences of listing and selling their first home. We are accepting applications from home sellers who have just started the process, or are ready to list soon. They must also have a reasonable goal of selling within three to four months. We are looking for pictures ASAP of the home and the homeowner(s).

Interested? Contact Rebecca Cope at 303.712.3174 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). But before you reach out, look at the application and official announcement to make sure it's something you're qualified for and genuinely interested in.

For those of you curious about what it's like to sell your home on reality television, watch for our piece later this week featuring one of the first DC residents to actually participate on My First Sale.

    Not sure that a DVD copy of the show and a "modest check" would be worth the time and effort involved. . .perhaps that is why they are having problems finding interested participants?

    I think it would be way fun to be on TV. Who wouldn't want a copy of themselves on national television and a little extra cash for their new place? what a great experience if you ask me!

    Being on TV is the reward. How many DC sellers are in so far?

    One wonders if the lack of interest has more to do with timing...Three to four months from now would be listing in late autumn, not exactly the liveliest season for home sales.

    I would have signed on for this a year ago! I had a very interesting experience. The first person to look at my house put in an offer! We went under contract, but the buyer backed out at the last possible moment after her parents didn't want their girl living in a "rough" neighborhood. I lost several weeks of potential buyers, and it never sold. Not a pretty ending, but a harsh reality of 2009.
