HGTV is looking for First-time Homebuyers to be on “My First Place!”

One of HGTV’s most popular series, “My First Place” will be in Portland for its SEVENTH season to film first-time homebuyers through all the trials and tribulations of looking for, bidding on and ultimately buying their first place! Each half-hour episode features people making the dream of homeownership a reality!

We are currently looking for homebuyers who are:

  • Buying their FIRST place.
  • Fun, interesting people who are excited to be a part of this show.
  • People willing to share their personal & financial struggles with viewers.
  • Buyers that are going to be closing before the end of 2009.
  • Will be buying within a 90-minute radius of downtown Portland.

Candidates who are chosen for the show will also receive a housewarming SURPRISE gift at the end of shooting to thank them for being on the show!

Singles, couples and families are all encouraged to apply!
