Home renovation shows are usually limited to specific geographic locations. Therefore, when you try to replicate the featured project in your own property, with a different zip code, the budget may vary considerably. In order to allow viewers to get a sense of the expenses in varied cities, HGTV came up with ‘Flipping Across America’ — a house-flipping reality series where similar renovations are executed in different locales. But how does the show incorporate this seemingly complicated concept? Read on for some detailed insights.
Flipping Across America Season 1 Release Date:
‘Flipping Across America’ season 1 will premiere on July 9, 2020, on HGTV at 8 pm ET/PT. Episodes will also be available to stream online on Spectrum-On-Demand and YouTubeTV. Otherwise, you can catch the episodes on the HGTV Go App.
Flipping Across America Host
‘Flipping Across America’ is hosted by Alison Victoria. The Chicago-based home renovation expert is known for her show, ‘Windy City Rehab’, and she features in an episode of ‘Design At Your Door‘ — a reality show where designers guide homeowners in overhauling their properties virtually while following social distancing norms. The tv-personality took to Instagram to announce ‘Flipping Across America’. She wrote: “🎥🎬 NEW SHOW ALERT!! #FlippingAcrossAmerica, with yours truly… coming soon on @hgtv!”
Each episode sees Alison pairing up with two sets of home reno stars from HGTV as they flip houses in different cities. Some of the notable names featured in season 1 include Mina and Karen from ‘Good Bones‘, Desert Flippers’ Lindsey and Eric, Clint Robertson and Luke Caldwell, and Jessie and Tina Rodriguez, among others.
What is Flipping Across America About?
Each episode of ‘Flipping Across America’ follows two sets of ‘well-known stars and flipping masters’ as they execute separate renovation projects in similarly priced properties with similar budgets. But the teams work in different cities. For instance, in one episode, Mina and Karen tackle an Indianapolis house with water issues while Lindsey and Eric restore a fire-damaged home in Palm Springs, CA. Again, in another episode, Clint Robertson and Luke Caldwell transform a 1900s triplex in Boise, ID while Jessie and Tina tackle a home in Redlands, CA.
Host Victoria Alison guides viewers through these featured flips and explains how location, contrasting budgeting plans, and types of design can result in different outcomes and overall costs. The show also highlights the cities where buyers make the maximum profits in flipping projects. HGTV outlines the series’ format in its official description, which goes as follows: “Alison Victoria travels America to show how favorite flipping masters economize their renovations. She follows two hosts with similar purchase prices and budgets, and the flipper whose remodel and design nets the biggest sale is declared the winner.”
