I would be more interested in those people who bought huge houses for big money and how they are doing now with the downturn.
I remember a show maybe two years ago where a man bought a weekend place in Las Vegas. I understand that is now one of the worst housing markets in the U.S. It would be 20 minutes of him sobbing about what a lousy decision he made to buy then; too painful to watch.
I did see one HH not too long ago where a couple who had previously bought a house on HH were searching for another home. But I think they were upsizing.

They've done the return to...shows on My First Place. I remember4 an episode where they mentioned they had not done enough research before buying, etc. and would not do that again. It was very real, I thought.

Both of your experiences were good for you years ago and I am glad that it worked out, but right now everybody who bought in the last few years did so at the top of the market. The people we saw on the shows might have the money to wait it out or not, so that is why a trip back in time to see what was said then and what is being experienced now would make a great "special" HOUSE HUNTERS or MY FIRST PLACE
I miss the old decorating shows on HGTV like "If Walls Could Talk" and "Designing for the Sexes" there was another his/hers kind of show where they reviewed a scrapbook at the end also. I am not looking to buy or sell my house, but would really appreciate a little help in making it more elegant.
But yeah, I would love to see such a special. I think they did one where are they now on a my first place type show. The guy was really sorry he bought in a more suburban place. His mortgage was a lot more than rent and he was far away from the action and his friends.
