Picture this.

Buying a pack of gum is relatively easy. In comparison, buying a car on Ebay is significantly more painful. And In further comparison, purchasing a home is quintessentially hell on earth. At least this is true if you are me. Idiot theory aside, the process of legally obtaining real estate can be right up there with chewing one's arm off. There are any number of emotions involved, giant piles of money exchanging hands, people to blame, deadlines to miss, negotiations to break down into beligerent "Fuck THEM"s. You want to make a compelling reality show? Follow me as I make a purchase of greater than $5000. The more money, the more agonizing (and therefore entertaining for a third party.) HGTV meets MTV meets HBO meets Pay-Per-View porn (just the scenes where I get bent over by the bank/the seller/the appraiser/the title company/Cable guy.)
