Ten years of family wear and tear have left their mark on Manuela and Ramon's four-bedroom ranch style home in Valley Stream, New York. Although the couple wants to downsize, the sagging property has been on the market for nearly two years and they're stuck in real estate limbo. Property expert Sofie Allsopp explains that while they think their home is move-in ready, the outdated decor, worn wallpaper, and over-the-top paint colors are sending potential buyers running for the hills. Sofie comes up with a dramatic design plan that includes a basement overhaul and gets the entire family involved in turning the house from unsellable to sold.
