When Andrew and Debra Pegalis learned that Andrew's job was moving two hours away, they decided to put their luxury townhome on the market and build a new house. It has been four months since the place has been for sale, and the couple, and their daughter, Brooklyn, are tired of commuting between the two places.

That's where the Get It Sold team comes into the picture. A group of real estate agents, led by Jennifer Snowden, are enlisted to point out the red flags in the home, and then host and staging expert Sabrina Soto develops a plan to eliminate them. The first problem: the big red wall and over-stuffed furniture in the living room that closes up the floor plan. Moving around the house, the family room has been turned into a large playpen, a guest room is being used for storage, and a chaotic basement-office is filled with clutter and cat stuff.

Since it is one of the first rooms seen upon entering the home, it needs to appear tidy and spacious so that potential buyers can picture themselves and their things in the room.
