Bravo, the don't-call-it-basic cable channel, has found its ideal housing market for the next season of the delicious show Million Dollar Listing, as we got wind of last summer. Now we can expect the San Francisco season, which will follow real estate agents and their wealthy clients, to premier on July 8th.
Whatever you do, don't call it fake. It's probably scripted, but as one of the stars tells the Chronicle in an interview released today, “The deals are very real...You can’t fake a big deal.”
And yet, I've got one quibble regarding realism. With median home prices here hitting $1,092,500 in February, shouldn't we really upgrade the show's title to Billion Dollar Listing? Either way, it comes at our expense.
