Toni and Gary Toni and Gary’s beautiful but boring four-bedroom home has had over 70 showings in two months… And they haven’t received a single offer. Sofie says the spotless and de-cluttered home is in great shape, but it makes a flat first impression. In spite of the home’s competitive price, she says, its lackluster décor, ratty sofas, and missing kitchen table are giving potential buyers the wrong idea. In order to upgrade the home from builder basic to create the all-important wow factor, Sofie comes up with a $6,000 plan. Desperate to sell, the couple is on board from the start… And as Anthony and the team neutralize the paint colors, and upgrade the lighting, plumbing and closet fixtures, Sofie teaches Toni and Gary how to set the stage for a sale. The results are phenomenal… And within 24 hours, so are the offers…
