Cruz Cervantez is a bachelor who is ready to trade in his spacious home for something smaller. When he purchased this Spanish-style house two years ago, he had high hopes of making it his own. Turns out it was more than he bargained for, and now he needs help transforming it into a moneymaker. He goes to the Designed to Sell team for help.
Real estate expert Shannon Freeman is the first to assess, touring the house and offering her opinions on what changes need to take place before the house goes on the market.
She is impressed with the exterior appearance, pointing out that curb appeal can seal a deal if it's good enough. Moving into the house, she finds that it feels cold and impersonal in nearly every room — very bachelor like. That's not a good selling point. Houses on the market need to be more appealing to the general public.Advertisement
