Danielle and Eric Brown are longtime renters who bought the house they used to rent, but never really felt like they owned the place. They are ready to sell and buy a house out of state. The Designed to Sell team signs on to help.
Real estate expert Shannon Freeman is on the scene first and is immediately impressed with the exterior, noting in particular the well-groomed landscape. Once inside, her tune changes. She compares the interior to a college dorm.
Designer Lisa LaPorta steps in next and is charged with formulating a plan to get this house in better selling shape. She wants to focus the team's efforts on improving the living room, kitchen and bathroom.
Step 1: Match the book to its cover. Make the home's interior just as inviting as the exterior so buyers won't be disappointed.
Step 2: Graduate in style. Use proper design to turn this college dormitory into a top-dollar home.
Step 3: Leave the past behind. Bring the basics up to date so the home has that move-in ready feel.
Carpenters Steve Hanneman and Brooks Utley lend their expertise to the project.
