It show

IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, part of the HSF Affiliates LLC family
of real estate brokerage franchise networks, today launched its “Love
Your Home” Sweepstakes promising a total of $80,000 in cash prizes. The
sweepstakes, held in conjunction with HGTV’s hit show Love It or List
, runs through June 17.

Viewers simply register at
for a chance to win a $2,500 prize in 12 weekly drawings or the $50,000
grand prize. The first winner will be announced April 6 followed by
weekly announcements through June 22. The grand prize winner will be
named in early July.

This is Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ second sweepstakes
incorporating the popular HGTV network. Last year’s $50,000 Sweepstakes
set one of HGTV’s highest totals for consumer registrations. It was won
by Barbara Wakefield, a Lawrenceburg, KY housewife and grandmother,
whose name was drawn from among more than 1.5 million entrants.

“Our sweepstakes generated an incredible amount of excitement and
exposure for the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand,” said Gino
Blefari, CEO of HSF Affiliates. “Our objective with this year’s Love
Your Home Sweepstakes is to build on that success with even more winners
leading up to the grand prize announcement.”

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices President Stephen Phillips said HGTV is
an ideal venue for the contest. The network features familiar
programming such as Love It or List It, Fixer Upper, Rehab
, House Hunters, Property Brothers and others.
“HGTV is incredibly popular among our key demographics and we anticipate
another fantastic outcome for our Love Your Home Sweepstakes,” Phillips

Through its agreement with HGTV, Love It or List It stars Hilary
Farr and David Visentin will appear in vignettes featuring “Good to
Know” home design and renovation tips that will appear on HGTV and its
digital properties, including DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking
Channel, Travel Channel and Great American Country (GAC).

Farr and Visentin recently attended Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’
2016 Sales Convention in Dallas to promote the sweepstakes and
association. “It was great to see how enthusiastically our network
responded to the Love It or List It stars,” said Kerry Donovan,
VP of Marketing for HSF Affiliates. “With their overwhelming popularity
and our bigger prize offerings this year, we expect a lot of fun and
consumer engagement with our brand.”
