List Rules Vote up the HGTV cliches you’ve definitely noticed.

HGTV is the channel for house hunting and home makeovers, and fans of the best current HGTV shows find entertainment in watching couples search for their new forever home. Perhaps the appeal lies in seeing real people actually seek their dream home on House Hunters, or maybe it's the endless HGTV cliches that keep viewers engaged. From fantasizing about sipping coffee on that fixer-upper balcony in the morning to melting over granite countertops and walk-in closets, the funniest House Hunters cliches make the show what it is. 

Next time you're looking for a house or watching someone seek their new residence on TV, make sure to note how close the neighbors are and don't be surprised when a beach house is more expensive than the suburbs.
