The main requirement you need to be eligible for the Home Town casting call is that you have to be buying a home in Laurel, MS, or buying a home in an area that is close by.

Another thing to note is that this is not a casting call to actually join the cast of the HGTV series. The casting call is for those applying to be the featured homebuyers in an episode. The cast is then tasked with renovating your home and making sure you are happy with your purchase.

To apply for the show, visit the HGTV website. No deadline was included in the post.

Talking about her move, she said that, "About four years ago, I had the opportunity to purchase a Laurel homestead with roughly 16 acres (that also happened to be an eight-minute drive from my parents’ house) and jumped at the chance to purchase Jones County real estate."

Rebekah went on to say that she loves the hospitality of the area.

"Even within the state of Mississippi, which is known for having friendly residents, I think Jones County natives are among the most welcoming," she added. "I would describe our residents as having a healthy mixture of hospitality, good-nature, strong independence, and a touch of contrarianism. We are the Free State of Jones, after all!"

Another happy customer is Rhona Phillips, who purchased a home and starred in Episode 11 in Season 4. Not only did the cast of Home Town renovate her house, but they did so quickly. “It was fast. They bring the whole team to a project. That itself is exciting," she said.
