    135. Is It Time to Put Modern Farmhouse Style Out to Pasture? (w/ Katie Holdefehr from Real Simple)

    135. Is It Time to Put Modern Farmhouse Style Out to Pasture? (w/ Katie Holdefehr from Real Simple)

    This week, Real Simple senior editor Katie Holdefehr joins us to deep dive on one of the most pervasive home design trends ever, modern farmhouse. It's currently a contentious topic—some people love it, some people hate it—and we're here to break it all down and ask the ultimate question:  Is modern farmhouse past its prime?
    In our conversation we discuss why modern farmhouse became so popular, the most egregious modern farmhouse furnishings (we're looking at you, mason jars...), and how it's evolved over the last decade.
    We also cover Christina Hall's new ultra-modern Newport Beach mansion, and we crown this week's celebrity real estate winners.

    134. What Happened to 'The Staircase' House? Plus, Erin Napier's Stranger Danger

    On the heels of the new HBO drama series "The Staircase", we dive into the status of the Peterson house in Durham, NC, where Kathleen Peterson died. Who owns it? Does it still look the way it did in 2001 when the crime occurred?
    Plus, we discuss Erin Napier's terrifying ordeal with a stranger who came to Laurel, MS, in search of her family. And, we crown this week's celebrity real estate winner.

    Lil Jon's New HGTV Show. Plus, a Real Estate Scam You Probably Haven't Heard Of

    Lil Jon's New HGTV Show. Plus, a Real Estate Scam You Probably Haven't Heard Of

    From "The Tinder Swindler" to the Elizabeth Holmes saga, our fascination with scammers knows no bounds. So, you can imagine how intrigued we were to learn about the brother-sister team who conned homebuyers out of $6 million in down payments. On a new episode of "House Party," we discuss this case and try to figure out how on earth the accused parties pulled it off.
    We also wrap up our thoughts on "Selling Sunset" season five, give our brutally honest thoughts on the newest HGTV show "Lil Jon Wants to Do What?", and crown this week's real estate winner.

    132. 'Selling Sunset' Season 5: The Real Estate Wars Continue; Plus, a Grammy-Winning Duo Takes a Loss

    132. 'Selling Sunset' Season 5: The Real Estate Wars Continue; Plus, a Grammy-Winning Duo Takes a Loss

    "Selling Sunset"—the Netflix reality TV show that focuses on luxury homes in Los Angeles and the relationships between the agents who sell them—is about 10% real estate and 90% drama. Some people wish the beautiful properties were highlighted more, but frankly, it's just not that kind of show. You might come to "Selling Sunset" for an up-close look at eight-figure mansions, but you stay for the not-so-controlled chaos that plays out among the agents on the show
    After tearing through Season 5, which started streaming a week ago, we were fascinated by how the agents of The Oppenheim Group handle bidding wars, deal with difficult clients, and negotiate closing cost credits.
    On this episode of "House Party," we dig into all the drama of the latest season. We also discuss the return of "Windy City Rehab" and Alison Victoria's season of "hell." And we crown this week's celebrity real estate winner and losers.

    131. 'Christina in the Country' Has a Lot to Prove. Plus, What Happened to the 'Rock the Block' Homes?

    Hi friends! This week we wrap up our "Rock the Block" talk with a discussion about the statuses of the houses designed on the show. Then, we get into Christina Hall's latest real estate coup and her new show, "Christina in the Country." We also talk about "Retro Plant Shop with Mikey and Jo," John Wayne Gacy's house (which is back in the news thanks to the new Netflix series, "Conversations With a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes"), and this week's celebrity real estate winner and loser.

    130. 'Rock the Block' Showrunner Shares Season 3 Secrets, Plus the HGTV Stars You'll Probably Never See on the Show

    Frequent "House Party" listeners know that we love to nerd out on HGTV shows. So you can only imagine how excited we were to talk to Patrick Byrnes, the showrunner and executive producer of "Rock the Block." Byrnes has been helming the show for the past two seasons, so he has plenty of first-hand knowledge about casting the show and all the hard work that actually goes in to creating a design competition.
    If you're craving more "Rock the Block" after you listen to our interview with Byrnes, check out our recap episodes from the past six weeks.

Talking with friends.

Loved the conversational nature of this pod and the interviews and behind the scenes details. This is my favorite subject matter. I’ll continue to listen.

Vinegar

I really enjoy listening because in every podcast there is a learning theme. Vinegar was my go to cleaner, not anymore. I particularly enjoy decorating ideas ins/outs of today’s ideas. Is square footage really a tool to price a home? Look forward to next episode. Our friends parents had several (too many) Coca Cola memorabilia in their house. Funny about Michigan guy!! That was fun listening, great one!! Final 2020 episode was fantastic! Look forward listening in 2021. Natalie and Rachel have great insights, each with different styles and opinions. Fun listening!! Ty was awesome, such great energy and tips! Thank you Natalie and Rachel for sharing his insights.
