New York [March 12, 2020] Excitement, stress and emotions will run high in HGTV’s fast-paced house hunting series House in a Hurry, premiering Sunday, March 22, at 9 and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. Cameras will follow in real time as a family who needs to relocate spends 72 intense hours searching for the perfect home in their new town. With an exciting life change on the horizon, the families will face a hard deadline to find and buy their new dream home in an unfamiliar city.

House in a Hurry is house hunting on steroids,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV. “These families are under a serious time crunch to buy a home and sometimes things reach a breaking point—it’s a real roller coaster ride!”

In the premiere episode, a family is relocating from Raleigh to Charlotte, North Carolina, for the husband’s job and needs to quickly find a new home before their teenager starts high school. With their desire to find a great house in a popular, eclectic neighborhood close to downtown, the couple will have their work cut out for them. Throughout the season, House in a Hurry will feature more families as they navigate the challenges of making important real estate decisions at hyper-speed—including buying in highly competitive markets where homes sell in hours. With a looming deadline, it’s more challenging to find properties that can check off the wish list and fit the budget. 

Fans are invited to connect with House in a Hurry on HGTV’s digital platforms. Each episode will be available on HGTV GO the same day as the TV premieres, Sundays beginning March 22. Viewers can visit for inspirational home content, including exclusive video and photo galleries from the show, and can follow @HGTV and #HouseinaHurry on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
