Ultimate Real Estate Test

Schoolteacher Han Trieu and wife Michelle have outgrown their home of four years and are ready to sell. The sooner they sell their home the better, so they turn to the Designed to Sell team to help them accelerate the process.

  • The exterior of this house is dreary and dated, according to real estate expert Shannon Freeman.
  • The sofas are in a strange location, and there is no coffee table to create cohesion between them.
  • The living room is now a beautiful space that is sure to sell itself.
  • Another problem with the living room is that there are too many personal photos on display.
  • A common mistake is hanging artwork too high, LaPorta says.
  • This kitchen lacks adequate storage space.
  • There's lots of room to slice and dice in the kitchen now, thanks to new cabinets, countertop and a spacesaving microwave/hood combo.
  • This room is dominated by the oversize bed.
  • The bedroom makeover is equally dramatic.
