David Bromstad My Lottery Dream Home
David is the host of “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV. The show airs Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT. He presents the winners a list of homes to consider. He says that it is a challenging show to produce because the number of people who actually win a lottery is finite, so casting is difficult. The show also requires finding winners who also want to be on TV.
“We do a real estate beat, where I go in and I have a pre-conversation with agents. They’ve already hunted for the parameters of what we’re looking for, so they hand me a stack of papers and then I go and I search for the best ones to show my homeowners. I listen to my clients and whatever they want, I deliver. I try to, of course, give them the best version of what they’re asking for, but you can only lead a horse so far. This is their money. It’s not mine. I’m just here to show options.”
He says the decision to purchase a home is not about buying a dream home, but in buying a dream location.
“I love showing homes to people who are ready to renovate because the options are limitless. I can show any type of home and it’s a lot easier. But a lot of people want move-in-ready homes, which is another ask. It’s more difficult. I’m like, ‘If you went up $50,000 more, then you could have that true move-in-ready,’ but that’s part of the challenges of having the show. It’s part of the fun. It’s hunting.”
David Bromstad Home

He said he chose to live in Orlando as most of his friends live there. “I had a choice of where I wanted to live, and I chose Orlando because all my best friends are living here, and they’re retiring here, and they’re not going to be moving anywhere else. My parents retired in The Villages. So I wanted to be here.”
