Hot Mess Overhaul in Chicago

Jen and Nick live in a crowded condo in Chicago with their two young children. Desperately needing more space but facing high home prices in the city, they've secured a mortgage-renovation loan where the costs of renovation are added into the mortgage. They're looking for a "hot mess" fixer and helping them find a good bargain is real estate agent Annie Bauer. Because the homes they're looking at haven't been touched in decades, it won't be easy to see past all the flaws and zero in on what has the right potential.
