HGTV's House Hunters looking for Southern California family for new season

HGTV's House Hunters looking for Southern California family for new season

One of the popular house hunting shows is coming to Southern California and trying to recruit a family.

HGTV’s “House Hunters Family,” a spin-off of “House Hunters,” is looking for a family with children between the ages of 7 and 15.

The Southern Californian families should be passionate about a home search and have “fun, opinionated personalities and interesting stories,” HGTV said.

Searching for a home in San Diego could prove logistically challenging for the show. Homes stayed on the market an average 31 days in 2017, and the median home price rose 9.1 percent in a year to $540,000 in December.

Still, the show’s precursor “House Hunters” often features affluent buyers. In an episode that aired in September last year, the show followed a 30-year-old aerospace engineer and a venture capitalist with a $1.2 million budget looking for a home on the coast. He bought a home in Bay Ho for $735,000.
