Who pays for the Home Town Takeover renovations?
The Home Town Takeover renovations are paid for in part by the homeowners of the property.
When applying for shows such as Vacation House Rules or Home Town Takeover, the application requirements involve the homeowners having some money to spend on the renovations.
Erin Napier said back in 2017 that she tries to re-use any items that the homeowners already have and that “the homeowners get a catalogued binder of everything we use that shows the special price our shop owners offer if they would like to keep it“.
Do the people get to keep their furnishings on Home Town Takeover?
Erin also addresses the subject of whether the people who feature on the show get to keep all the belongings that are shown in the final shots of the house in her IG post.
She said: “The homeowners’ budget usually does allow for lots of pieces they get to keep + the custom pieces @scotsman.co builds for each home.“
The residents of Wetumpka, Alabama get to keep some of the items as seen on the show. As per Distractify, the homeowners’ budget almost always covers the cost of any new furniture. The homeowners aren’t paying for Erin and Ben’s service, though, so their fee is covered by HGTV.
The locations renovated during Home Town Takeover are The “Big Fish” house, East Bridge Street, Coaches Corner Sports Bar & Grill, Orline Street, Company Street and Jerry’s Barber Shop, Opelika.
