My Top 6 Favorite Real Estate Themed Movies

Hi blog readers!  I thought I would have some fun with FB and IG this week and posted my Top 6 Favorite Real Estate Themed movies!  If you missed it – here’s the run down – I would love to find out what your favorite Real Estate Themed movies are!

I’ve listed them from Like to Love.  Can you guess my line up?

Number 6

1 money pit.jpg

The Money Pit – 1986

Tom Hanks, Shelley Long – Directed by Richard Benjamin.  Written by David Giler.

This was an easy choice, buyer beware!  A classic, worth a good laugh and some consideration if you’re looking at fixer uppers.

Number 5

1 back to future lyon estates

Back to the Future 2 – 1985

Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson – Directed by Robert Zemeckis.  Written by Robert Zemeckis, Baby Gale

The reason I selected this classic time travel tale is for the exact moment Marty is standing at the Lyon Estates Entrance and his street is still farmland.  That sparked my love of history and real estate and as a little girl, I started looking into the history of San Carlos – which started off just like that.  Stay tuned for my History of San Carlos bit coming soon!

Number 4

2 field

Field of Dreams  – 1989

Kevin “Dances with Wolves” Costner, James Earl Jones, Ray Liotta – Directed by Phil Alden Robinson – Written by W.P. Kinsella and Phil Alden Robinson

I had to choose this movie – as in the options when you are a homeowner – as in – you turn your cornfield into a Field of Dreams.  The message is clear, homeownership allows for your dreams to come true – whatever they may be.  Super cheesy – however I just love Kevin Costner and baseball so I had to pick this!

Number 3

1 home poi_gallery_image-image-3b98779b-3d8c-423b-856d-cdfe978a6e25

Home Alone  – 1990

Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci – Directed by Chris Columbus – Written by John Hughes

Now, this is one of my childhood favorite holiday movies but what I really fell in love with was the house.  Did you know the entire home was decorated in Christmas colors – red, green and white?  That beautiful colonial home will always be Christmas to me.

Number 2

1 blandings

Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House – 1948

Cary Grand and Myrna Loy – Directed by H.C. Potter – Written by Eric Hodgins, Norman Panama

A true classic film starting Cary Grant (swoon) and Myrna Loy (Gorgeous).  I love every aspect of this film.  Each headache Mr. Blandings experiences is as true today as then.  A great movie just to laugh through your own remodel.

Number 1

6 Under_Tuscan_Sun_Villa_Pool_Embed

Under the Tuscan Sun – 2003

Diane Lane and Raoul Bova Realtor Vincent Riotta  – Directed by Audrey Wells  – Written by  Frances Mayes, Audrey Wells

First I love Diane Lane.  Who doesn’t.  She is divine in this role and so is Bramasole.  Another home that just beckons to me.  But Martini, the Realtor played by Vincent Riotta is just perfection.  The whole movie is a feel good moment.  I love the theme of turning a house into a home, and again how dreams really do come true.

Thank you for following my favorite Real Estate themed films.
