Without even trying, you can easily sabotage an entire day’s to-do list by sitting down with “a little” HGTV, whether broadcast, magazine or social media. So many gorgeous homes, so many exotic locations, so much inspiration!
This year, five homes in North Texas have been chosen as HGTV’s 2021 Ultimate House Hunt finalists. And all five are under the Ebby Halliday Companies umbrella. Coincidence? Hardly. It’s more like … Connections!
Not just any home can be considered for the annual competition. To add an element of exclusivity, HGTV partners with Luxury Portfolio International, and only member-company properties are eligible for consideration.
You see, the Ebby Halliday Companies are a founding member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a global network of 565 vetted firms with 130,000 sales associates able to share listings with prospects around the world. LPI is LeadingRE’s members-only luxury property marketing program. So only the best of the best make the cut (i.e., no chance that a ‘WTF Wednesday’ feature could accidentally be crowned winner).
There are eight categories of listings in the Ultimate House Hunt. The local 2021 finalists are:
- Downtown Dwellings
- Downtown Dallas Penthouse Swathed in Luxurious Neutral Tones – listed by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate
- Outdoor Escapes Category
- Luxurious Texas Home is an Outdoor Wonderland – listed by Ebby Halliday (Sold)
- Amazing Kitchens
- Glam Kitchen Shines With Crystal Pendants – listed by Ebby Halliday (Sold)
- Curb Appeal
- Contemporary Curb Appeal With Clean Lines and Trailing Vines – listed by Williams Trew
- Homes With a History
- Texas Victorian With a Second-Story Ballroom – listed by Williams Trew
Voting takes place now through August 4, and you can vote daily for your favorites in each of the eight categories. After you vote, be sure to enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win $10,000!
If you’d like to say you live in an HGTV Ultimate House Hunt Finalist home, you better hurry. Two listings have already sold since the contest began. But three are still available and waiting to become the winner of your heart!
