Here's Where HGTV's Love It Or List It
Is Filmed
While many episodes of "Love It or List It" are shot in America, Hilary Farr is based in Toronto, while David Visentin lives with his family in Barrie, Ontario. It makes sense, then, that the first six years of the show were filmed in Toronto and surrounding areas in Ontario, Canada.
In September 2014, the show moved to North Carolina, and they’ve been working with homeowners in Raleigh-Durham and the very close surrounding areas ever since. With Realtor listing the median listing home price in Raleigh as $354,000, it's much more affordable than some of the properties that were worked on during the show's time in Toronto.
In 2021, HGTV announced the show would return to Toronto for a new season. On Twitter, they wrote, "The hit HGTV show is now casting in Toronto. To be eligible you must currently own a home in the GTA and surrounding area, [and] need expert design and construction help."
