Amanda Lamb: Love It or List It

Posted November 23, 2015

For the past few months my family and I have been on a whirlwind adventure, one that I wasn’t allowed to talk about while it was going on. Tonight, the jig will be up.

It hasn’t been easy keeping this big part of my life under wraps for so many months, especially with my company’s push to have us share our personal lives on social media.

We participated in HGTV’s “Love It or List It.” If you aren’t already a big fan of the show and a weekend binge watcher like me, here’s the scoop: Interior designer Hilary Farr and real estate agent David Visentin vie for your desire to stay in your newly renovated home or successfully encourage you to move to a new home which better suits your needs. Along the way, they trade barbs and jokes each hoping he or she will be the one to sway the homeowners.

It was a whirlwind experience. We had to move out of our home during the process and spent many days working with Hilary on the renovation and touring homes with David. While it was most definitely a big undertaking for a family of four, I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. The crew we worked with was professional, polite and fun-loving which made the journey that much better.

Like the viewers, we will be seeing the show for the very first time tonight. Of course the question everyone is asking me is: “Did you love it or list it?” My lips are sealed … tune in to find out … and come back to WRAL on Tuesday for the photos!

HGTV Monday, November 23, 9 p.m.

Amanda is the mom of two, a reporter for WRAL-TV and the author of several books including some on motherhood. Find her here on Mondays.

    I enjoyed watching the show Monday night and wasn't surprised at all that you decided to "love it." You have a beautiful home. I'm hoping you can answer a question I've always wanted to know. The furniture and accessories in the renovated rooms -- is that included in the budget you specify (e.g., do you get to keep them) or are they just brought in for staging? I absolutely love the way Hilary decorates, and especially what she did with your new downstairs space.

    My family home that I grew up in was featured 2 weeks ago, mid-century modern in Durham, we sold it 3 years ago after my mother passed away. Hillary did a magnificent job. Can't wait to see your segment tonight!
