Hot Property is a Channel 5 show originally broadcast from 1997 to 1998 and hosted by Sandy Mitchell. It was then revived from 5 November 2001 to 11 July 2003 in two formats; originally hosted by Tris Payne in 2001 but then replaced by Alice Beer from 2002, when the series was retooled into a game show.

An Australian version of the show began on 1 January 1999, hosted by Michael Caton. A 14th season was aired on Nine Network in 2013.

Format[edit]

Revival series[edit]

For the first series, host Tris Payne followed first-time buyers as they decided among three properties to purchase from.

From the second series on, the show's format was retooled into a game show presented by Alice Beer. From then on the premise followed first-time buyers trying to win their first step on the property ladder. Each episode would feature a young couple desperately in need of a home of their own. The contestants view three properties, pick their favorite and then guess the price. If they guess within the allotted amount, they win the house of their dreams.

Programmes were filmed in the UK, along with specials giving British couples a chance to win their dream home in Spain.
