Dear HGTV producers:
I love your channel, and am very glad that I can find my favorite HGTV shows on hgtv.com and on hulu.com. My First Place, Property Virgins, and House Hunters kept me company while I cleaned & organized this weekend.
However, as entertaining and informative as the shows are, I’d suggest you add in a financial component as well. Or, better yet, a WHOLE NEW SHOW that not only focus on the granite and the double vanity, but on FICO scores, loan amortization, fixed vs. variable, down payments, etc – in other words, the funnest parts of the home-buying process.
In fact, I’ve already come up with a name for this new show: My First Mortgage. Not snazzy enough? Well, then, behold the collective wisdom of the personal finance blogosphere:
Readers, what would your name be for the show?
