Local spotlight

White Rock has been chosen as a location for a “fantasy lifestyle property” TV show that is to air on the Home and Garden Network (HGTV) next year.

In Live Here Buy This!, North American homeowners describe where they fantasize about living and the lifestyle factors that would make them happiest.

While they remain in North America, JV Productions of Toronto then shows them what their life could be like in three very different communities that meet their criteria.

Their television tour guides sell them on desirable local lifestyles and why each community is a fantastic place to call home. Then, based on the current market value of the homeowners’ North American home, they tour two homes for sale in each of the three communities featured in the episode.

The South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce is to work with JV Productions to showcase White Rock as “the place to live,” and the program is to air in spring 2012.
