Simona Argenti, Beyond Rights’ head of sales comments: “Love It or List It is the perfect property and lifestyle title, as it deals with the ‘should we stay or move’ issues that most property owners, wherever they are in the world, usually face at some time. If you add in useful renovation, makeover and buying tips—and everyone’s love of looking around other people’s homes—it’s no surprise that this title continues to perform extremely well, both as a format and as finished programming. With fresh versions in new locations, significant volume and franchise extensions, Love It or List It has become a cornerstone program brand for numerous broadcasters around the world, and we are thrilled that so many of our partners keep both loving it and listing it!”
