Property Virgins - HGTV
HGTV is having a Casting call and audition for their home TV series Property Virgins. It will be filmed this summer and will air between May and August.

Property virgins is looking for first time buyers who are house hunting in those areas and would like to share their experience on HGTV.

Property Virgins takes viewers inside the intense world of house hunting through the eyes of first-time buyers. The series focuses on the roller-coaster journey of property virgins’ first foray into real estate, offering tell-it-like-it-is entertainment and practical take-home advice. Part Realtor, part therapist, friend and financial advisor, host Sandra Rinomato helps new buyers see the difference between their hopes of acquiring the out-of-reach dream home and the hard reality of what it takes to find the right property.

  1. Hello HGTV!
    It has always been a dream of mine to purchase a home on my own. I am a 29y/o female born and raised in SoCal and I save lives for a living as a registered nurse. I feel now is the best time for me to be completely independent, especially now because I share a single family home with 7 other people. I am open to areas throughout southern California within the Los Angeles and Ventura County. Being chosen for this show would not only be a great blessing but I will be a living testimony to all the single late twenty/thirty year old ladies out there sending a message that you do not need to wait for a family or to be married to pursue your dream of owning your own home.
    I also love this show and it would be a dream come true to be chosen.

    Sincerely, Ashley Angeles

  2. My husband and I will be moving to the Austin, Texas area during the fall and are looking to buy our first home. We have been living in San Antonio, TX for almost 9 years, but have been forced to move to Austin for job opportunities for my husband. I am finishing up my doctorate during the move and we are looking to start a family in the near future. With everything going on, I know we will be completely overwhelmed with information to do an adequate job house hunting without some help from pros! We have already been searching for homes and we're already feeling overwhelmed. Please help us in our mission to find the perfect home for us in an up and coming area in the capitol of Texas!

  3. Happy Trails!

    My boyfriend and I have been together for over three years and opted out of living together since we are not married and wound up spending thousands of dollars renting to please our parents! My boyfriend is completing his medical residency at the end of June and we are looking to move to the Atlanta Metropolitan area in August….wait for it…TOGETHER! This will be the first home purchase for the both of us. We admit inexperience, an need help! I am afraid that a large increase in our finances will prompt us to potentially make a poor decision. We do not have children, however, we are looking for a starter home that our families will likely visit often. We are from the Chicagoland area, and will be a long way from home. Your helps is so greatly appreciated! We would love to be apart of the show. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

  4. Hello! My name is Kimberly Turley and my fiance's name is Michael McKell. We have been in a long distance relationship for over a year. We are getting married in June and will be finally in the same place for more than two days. We want to be in a house by early fall.

    We are both teachers and have been renting our entire college careers and first years of teaching. We are sick of paying rent and the housing market in Utah County is a home buyers dream.

    After we get married, since I am moving from another state and he lives with four roommates–too crowded, we will be in his parent's basement until we find a home. It is a crowded space, so we are definitely motivated to find something.

    Helps us find our first home where we won't have to leave each other after two days and can get a couple of puppies!

    Thanks for your time!

    Michael and the future Kimberly McKell

  5. My boyfriend and I are looking for our first house in the Smyrna/Vinings area and it's proving to be taxing, and much harder than I thought. Everything seems to be getting snatched from us and it's very discouraging. He tells me to keep my chin up and I'm trying! We know the perfect house is out there for us to really start our lives together! We're looking for a place we can be happy in for the next 5-10 years and then turn into an investment property.

  6. We are a family of 3, parents to a beautiful 5yr old Special needs daughter. She is severely delayed, therefore we are looking for asimple ranch style home.

  7.

  9. My son is a sergeant in the Army and is being transferred to Fort Hood in Texas. He and his wife and two kids want to purchase their first home. They are new to the area and new to home buying and could really use expert help.

  10. My husband and I have been married almost 13 years and he has been active duty in the United States Air Force our entire marriage. We have always lived either on base or rented houses/apartments which has always been fine..until now. We are currently living in Alaska, and this is actually our 2nd time being stationed here. We fell in love with the state the first time we lived here and always said we wanted to retire here. Well now we're back and feel that it's time to FINALLY take the plunge and buy our first home! We've looked at listings online and contacted realtors but to be honest we have NO idea where to go from there, and everything they say in their emails to us looks like jibberish and makes no sense! We would LOVE to be on your show so that we can find our forever home in the beautiful state of Alaska!!

  11. I'm a 26 year old social worker looking to purchase my first home. I am sick and tired of paying someone else's mortgage. I found a steal of a rental 45 minutes away from my work which is often a 1-2 hour commute. I do not see myself continuing to commute like this for the next 5 years while still maintaining my sanity. I work in the mental health field and it would be a tragedy to see my life go that route. I also can not justify paying over $1,000 in rent if I do not own the property. So few people of color and especially women of color own homes. I not only want to create a legacy for myself and my family but I seek to break barriers and statistics showing that people of color can in fact purchase homes. My goal is to inspire and motivate which is why I have the career that I do. I have finished grad school and found an amazing career the next step I hope to achieve is to become a home owner. I hope that you choose me and help me in this journey. I also would like to spotlight some of the first time home buyer programs to show individuals that it is possible to become a home owner.

We could sure use some help.. OH and there is me..either a mother in law unit in each or a home somewhere in the middle..

  15. I am a graphic designer living in Atlanta, and I recently have calculated how much I have spent in rent over the past several years, and it makes me sick thinking that I do not own my own place. At the age of 31 I feel its the perfect time to start considering my options of buying a new home for myself. I have gone through the process of trying to buy a home once before, but after I put in my offer, I got really nervous and had to cancel the offer. This is my year and I am ready!

    I'd love to be on the show and have help.

  16. I have lived in my home for the last 25 years. My step dad retired and filed bankruptcy so we have a few months to vacate. My husband works so I can be home with our 5 year old daughter. We live paycheck to paycheck and we are about to have to add a rent on top of it. We have had no luck finding any homes and we loose the ones we do find to other renters. It's very difficult to explain to a child where we are going to live.

Now that we have a 8 month little girl, are one bed room home is so small for us with all the extras of having a child brings.We need as much help as possible because we do not know the in's and out's about buying a home. If we are going to get out of renting we would really appreciate a professional to help with understanding what it takes in buying a home.
    Thank you for your consideration.

  19. My 22 year old son is looking to buy his first house, he has been approved for 135,000.00 plus he has every thing for closing and down payment.

  21. Hi,

    My wife and I have been living with my mother-in-law for the last 2+ years. We've been helping to carry the house, but I'd really like to get a place of my own (my name on the deed and such). What's more my wife is pregnant and is expecting in July. Ideally we would like to get a place before the baby comes. But since we're both full time teachers (I'm private, she's public) we barely have the time (until the summer) to search. It's our first home and we want to do this right for our baby.

  22. From Sunny Hawaii to Snowy Chicago:

    My Navy husband and I are relocating to the windy city and don't even know where to begin! After living in <400 sq ft in Honolulu, Hawaii, we are ready for a home to call our own. Our budget is $200,000 for our first single family home to start a family/have puppies/babies/etc.

    We have two different styles. I am modern/art deco chic, while my husband is country/southern stye.

    Feel free to check out my webpage monicamerel.weebly.com to get a little more background on our personality/style.

    Mahalo nui,

  24. Hey Sandra,

    I have lived in Cobb County for the past 5 years and moved here from Delaware. I have never owned a home and working for a non-profit I am limited. I moved down with terrible credit from college and worked hard over the 5 years to finally get myself back on track. I am 30 and single and now ready for my next move. I have been pre-approved and have a down payment. My biggest stipulation is that I have a pitbull that I rescued from a bad area when he was a puppy. He is my life and although he is the sweetest baby, I am worried that I will have an issue finding a home. PLEASE HELP!!!!

  26. Hi, I am actually entering my son & daughter in law that live in San Diego. They are newlyweds looking for their first home. Because we moms can't be there to help, we feel that Sandra would step in and do what their realtor has neglected to do, know the laws and help them find their home. I watch the show all of the time and know that San Diego has been shown before. Thanks!

  27. Lisa and I want to get on your show desperately. We have been together for six years and wedding bells are in the near future. We rent an apartment, in a closet sized apartment, under the flight path of incoming planes, to San Diego Airport. We have a high need Yorkie, Jack, who needs a yard. We have the down payment and we are prequalified. We want a fixer upper with good location. Please help. Love HGTV. Wish your show was on more….

  28. My name is Ben. My Fiance, Lisa and I are living in a closet sized 1 bedroom apartment, under flight path of incoming planes to San Diego Airport. We are now looking for a home of our own in San Diego. We want a fixer upper close to the water. I am handy and want to have our dream home become a reality. I hope this comment will help me get on your show somehow. I tried to apply before and I think I applied to become an actor/ model instead. We watch HGTV and your show constantly.

  29. My name is Tara Cannon, I moved to Atlanta approximately a year ago in search of the "american dream" for one!! I am single and own a pet name Dakota (cat). We are originally from the Bronx. I always wanted to own my home. Here in Atlanta my dream seems obtainable. I am currently searching in Metro Atlanta and hope to move in to my first owned property by November 2012, as my lease will be up. I truly need the assistance & expertise that you can provide, as I know nothing about the process, but look forwward to the challenge. I think it would be interesting to document my search, as I am a girl born/raised in the jungles of the urban city of New York, and here I am now in beautiful Georgia searching for my very first home, then a husband. One thing I promised Dakota when I picked her out of an abandoned litter in an alley, that I would one day give her a better life. Now help me keep my promise!!! Thanks.

  34. Hello,
    My name is Autumn and my husband Zach and I have been searching for the perfect home in Boca Raton Florida. We have put 7 offers on homes and either investors have bought them by paying less and using cash, or they want a conventional loan. We are ready to make a purchase and call south Florida our home. We dated for 6 years and have been married one year this March 19 2012, what a great anniversary present to be on your show and purchase a home. I am a Registered Nurse and my husband is a Project Engineer, we have money saved and great credit, please help us make our dreams come true!

  35. Oh, by-the-by, love your show and love, love love, HGTV…I honestly have it on all waking moments, (well, unless I'm watching the odd show on DIY that is) -y-

  36. Hello Sandra,
    I am a 50+ single woman (finally) in search of my first home in the Tri-State area (within 30 mi of NYC) and I’m very motivated to buy very soon!!!!
    My credit score is 720+ and have pre-qualed for $200K+…I am an Independent Corporate Flight Attendant and work out of the White Plains, NY, Farmingdale, NY, Teterboro, NJ, Morristown, NJ, and Waterbury/Oxford, CT airports so I need to be within a 2 hr. driving distance between all 4 airports.
    Due to my “Tri-state” interests and state realtor licensing restrictions, I've been quite diligent with my own on-line research but must admit it's becoming somewhat overwhelming.
    I’ve done a little research on the current government 203k home improvement loans, which I’m also interested in as my (distant) background is that of Interior Designer and Home Re-modeler so I’m not afraid of homes/townhouses that need updating or “TLC.”
    Although I have no children, for resale value, I’m interested in areas with “good school districts” such as: Stamford & Greenwich, CT, areas just north of NYC (New Rochelle & Momaroneck, NY), and/or areas on the west side of the Hudson River in NJ; i.e., Fort Lee, Edglewood Cliffs, Teaneck, Glen Ridge, Clifton, etc
    Because my new home interests include all 3 states, I cannot find a Realtor who licensed in all three states so narrowing down my search has become very challenging.
    My wish list is (in order of preference): outside space (patio or balcony), laundry (hook-ups) in unit/home, parking garage, central heating/air (or upgradable to), 2 bdrm + den, 2 bath, 1st floor or elevator,
    Please HELP me ASAP!!!!
    Thanks (inadvance)!!

  40. Hi Sandra

    I am obsessed with your show! My Fiance Brad and I are getting married in July 2012 and desperately need your help. Currently we are both living at his parents’ house in Maryland. Neither of us has ever purchased a home before and we now have enough money saved up to buy a house.

    Brad and I are very different decision makers. I see something that I like and buy it. Brad on the other hand has to exhaust, and I mean exhaust all of his options before making a decision. One week he is only interested in all brick houses and the next he only wants a house on a lot of land. I am done with all of the stipulations and ready to take the plunge into home ownership. We have seen hundreds of house and feel more lost now then when we started.

    Sandra help us!

  41. My husband and I are currently looking to purchase our first home, we have two children and are looking at the Dallas/Fort Worth areas, preferably Burleson. I wanted to find out when is Property Virgins able to come out this way in Texas? We really need some assistance,Please help us find a great house for our family. My husband works full time and we are both full time students and we feel it is time to stop renting and buy our first family home. Hope to hear back for you soon, Thank you so much in advance.

  42. Hi,
    We have been married for almost 2 years. We have been looking for a house for that entire time in Northwest Ohio (Toledo area). We want to find a home in the suburbs. We have looked at so many homes, but have difficulty finding EVERYTHING we want. We have a 1 year old daughter, and live in the Mobile home that my husband grew up in. We are so anxious to find a home where we can raise our family. Please help us to select our first home!!!

  43. My husband has been in the military active duty for almost 5 years and has been stationed in Cuba, which at the time was dependent restricted and now currently Guam, which is thousands of miles away and on the other side of the world from our family/friends and what we call home. He has been deployed for almost a year now off and on and shortly will be coming home in March. We are scheduled to move back to the mainland around August-November of this year. We will be moving to Virginia and will be searching for our first home. We have only known the military life setting, so searching for our first home will be challenging since all we have ever known is base housing or whatever was given to us. We would like to settle down in his hometown so we can start our family where not only we can have a place to call home, but also have our family involved in our lives which they have not been able to do so in 5 years. Any help would be much appreciated since we are transitioning back into the “Real World”. Thanks.

  44. I love Sandra and the show BUT Sandra drives me crazy when she keeps telling people to ask for concessions from the sellers. Concessions are creative financing terms and are not realty items. The other thing is she just mentioned on a show that lead base paint could be in homes built before 1960. Lead base paint is in homes that were built in 1978 or before. Thanks for listening to my comments. I really love all the shows on HGTV. carol

  47. My husband and I are celebrating our 8th anniversary on Feb 29th. We have been renting all of this time and are finally ready to buy our first home. I don't think I can take another year of apartment life! We've had a lot of time to think about what we want, but need some help taking that first step. We would love it if Sandra could guide us on our first home search!

  48. Marrying the man of my dreams in December 2010 was the best day of my life. What could be better? Finding the home of our DREAMS. We are currently renting and spending $1800 a month (inc. utilities) and are ready for the next big step…our FIRST home! With both of us as active duty military members, things can get hectic. We are blessed to be in the area for many, many years! Please…help us…help us find a home in Vrginia Beach/Chesapeake area!!
    Thank you!
    Christin and Gideon Scheepers (Skippers)
