With so much going for it, you'd think someone would want to snatch up this piece of paradise. But one look at the downstairs ohana and it was obvious out why this place wasn't moving. The rental unit was inhabited by two surfers for whom housekeeping was not a top priority. The carpets were filthy, the kitchen hadn't been cleaned in ages, and the bedrooms were a disaster.

      Greg's tenants were moving out of his Santa Monica home, so he thought it was time to sell. The place was a little run down, but property values in the area regularly ran into the low millions, so it was not surprising that, even with a dark interior and some pet odor issues, this place was priced at $850,000. But potential homeowners weren't going to bite unless there was a carrot at the end of the stick. The living room was dark and cramped with outdated furniture, and the master bedroom was overflowing with furniture. Roger had a plan to give the living room a fresh new tropical-beach feel.

      The house had hardwood floors, a large yard, a patio - the perfect family home - but for some reason, the place hadn't attracted any buyers. The Filancias had lived here for just over a year, but they were being transferred to Finland for work, so they had to find a buyer, and soon. However, the living room stood in as the dining room and the dining room had become a home office. Roger devised a plan to declutter the office so it could be painted and turned back into a dining room. In the living room, Roger and Tanya cleared out the clutter and borrowed some furniture from the family room to return it to its original state. The fireplace had a case of the blahs, so they installed an entire mantel.moreless
    • Cathedral City, CA - Reina Delgadillo & Deborah Deechan
      Set in the desert oasis town of Cathedral City, California, with a pool out back, and lots of living space, Reina and Debbie's place should have been a quick sell, but instead the house had been lingering on the market. In the den, the faux finish on the walls looked like smoke, so Tanya and Roger replaced the tired browns with a cheerful new shade of green.

First, it was time to bring a little more sparkle to the sunroom by repainting the brick wall white and taking up the carpet, then recutting the shades to fit the windows. Hanging baskets were added to the fence in the yard. Roger's goal in the kitchen was to bring some cheerfulness to the room and tie it in to the adjacent dining room and living rooms, which he painted the same color.moreless

      Sallie's home has a big backyard with a swimming pool, over 2,700 square feet of living space and lots of charm. Other homes in the neighborhood often sold in less than two weeks, so why couldn't she find a buyer? Well, for starters, it could have been the 25-year-old wallpaper in the entryway. Then there was the matter of the two stoves in the kitchen, and lots of unused space that just didn't bring buyers in. Tanya and Roger modernized the kitchen, repainted the cabinets and, with a few clever tricks, Roger Hazard updated the hardware. Then he removed the extra stove.

      Just miles from Hollywood, this spacious ranch house with four bedrooms and 2-1/2 bathrooms was perfect for raising a family. So why were Jim and Donna Jackson having such a hard time selling their house? Maybe the bright green carpet, reminiscent of a golf course, and the master bath that had a "grimy" feel?

    • Alpharetta, GA - Doug & Patty Skinner

However, their personal style tended toward a heavy, Roman theme, and their home was so full of collectibles from their travels there was hardly room for open house guests to turn around. Their solution was to move to a larger home with more space to accommodate their passion for art, but first they had to find a buyer for the current house. Roger discovered the den was really a hidden bedroom, a fact that would please space-conscious buyers, but he needed to find a creative way to draw attention to this overlooked detail.moreless

      Rose had been living in her house in rural Montana for a long time, and most of her children had moved to the city. She planned on joining them, but first she had to sell her house. With shag carpet and a bar in the living room, her place looked like it was frozen in time and, unfortunately, the time was the 1970s. Roger Hazard's plan was to update the house, but still leave the rustic charm. The shag carpet that covered hardwood floors was the first thing to go and the faux brick on the walls was painted a lighter color.

It was located on a quiet cul-de-sac, had a large backyard, and had great amenities such as a fireplace, and it was priced just right for the neighborhood, but it was looking just a little bit dog-eared. Could this explain why it had been on the market for an entire year? Tanya Memme guided them through the tough process of learning what people really thought of their place. Then, it was time for Roger Hazard to the rescue! His first prescription: bring some light into this cave! The ugly old curtains in the living room were history.

They wanted a bigger house for Jeff's home business, but before they could move, they needed to sell their current home. The entry to a home makes the first impression to homebuyers, but this one was scaring open house guests away with its unkempt deck, pet odor and stained walls.
