Could Your Home Be Used For A Movie Or TV Commercial?

If your home is chosen for a movie or TV commercial setting, the payoff can be much larger than cash fees of $1,000 to $15,000 a day. It all depends on a film�s budget, the length of shoot, and the owner�s negotiating skill.

Compensations have included everything from a fresh coat of paint outside or inside to an overhaul of the landscaping to a new deck added (with your permission). Film companies try to leave a home in the same condition as they found it�or better.

To get a leg up on the competition list your home with your local film commission, and ask for a list of location agencies. (Agencies act as agents for your house, aggressively promoting it in exchange for taking a cut of 10% to 30% from the shooting fee.)
