Arlington Couple Featured on Episode of HGTV’s ‘House Hunters’

An Arlington couple was recently featured on HGTV’s “House Hunters,” where TV crews followed them as they bought their first house in the county.

Suzanne and Nick, a pair of newlyweds currently renting in Arlington, were the stars of an episode of the popular show last week.

Local real estate broker Alex Ordonez was able to secure the couple a spot on the show after applying this past summer.

The couple examined homes in Falls Church, Arlington and Alexandria, and even stopped for drinks at Clarendon’s Heritage Brewery over the course of the episode. Ordonez previously told ARLnow that HGTV filmed the episode back in August.

The pair ultimately opted for the house in Arlington, citing its proximity to D.C. and favorable price — the couple ended up paying about $411,000 for the house, substantially less than the county’s average home sale price, which hovers closer to $670,000.

“House Hunters” has filmed in the county several times over the last few years, including episodes in 2012 and 2014.

The full episode is available online.
