While it’s true that real estate themes are nothing new to home improvement shows on cable television (look at the success of shows like House Hunters, and Flip or Flop; A&E put a new spin on the concept with Sell This House. The show began airing in 2003, featuring home sellers and their quest to make their homes attractive to buyers.
It all starts with an open house that takes place after the sellers prepare the home for the market on their own. After this open house, an expert assesses the problems with the house as they relate to showing to prospective buyers, then the sellers, family and friends, and the expert go to work staging the house properly on a modest budget. Once the prep work is done, the buyers are brought through the house again. In 2011, the show was restructured to one hour rather than a half hour and the name changed to Sell This House: Extreme.
Wouldn’t it be great if you had an expert on hand to guide you through the staging process? It sure would make selling your home a heck of a lot easier! However, there is an easy way to sell your home, without any prep work or staging at all.
