Since the shine came out of the housing market here in Australia it seems that it has also come out of the home improvement, DIY, renovation and Real Estate television shows.
Home Improvement television shows used to dominate prime time television here in Australia. I am watching a home improvement show right now, but it is a repeat, and right now it is 11.55 at night, not exactly prime time.
Lots of people are saying that with the current housing market there will be more people renovating, not less. People will want to look at improving where they live now, rather than upgrading to a new home. I guess that some of the glamour has come out of it however, since people will now most likely be making their renovation choices based on lifestyle, rather than ROI (return on investment).
The new "flavour" on television now in Australia seems to be cooking shows. What is it like in your part of the world? Are there fewer Home Improvement shows on television where you are? What has taken there place where you live? Let us know in the comments below …
