Sell This House!

Services for Real Estate Pros

Have you ever seen this show, "Sell This House!"?

I haven't.. But!

You can bet I'll be watching tonight!

It is a very special episode!

The house featured tonight is one I spent a lot of time at back in the early 90s.

It is the home of my sister-in-law's parents!

It is going to be so strange for me to see my sister-in-law who I haven't seen since 1996, and the rest of her brothers and sisters, and the house that holds so many special memories for me on cable TV.

You can bet I'll have the Kleenex at hand for this. I know they paint over a wall mural that her mom did, a "family tree" if you will. It tore my sister-in-law apart when they did that, but if you watch, they did something special for her with that. I hope they show it.

Tune in tonight, A&E at 7:00 PM ET, SELL THIS HOUSE! to see where I spent part of the early 90s and the family that I still consider mine.

Oh yeah! "SELL THIS HOUSE!" is sponsored by Century 21! How cool!

Kim & Cyndee, It was neat seeing my favorite sister-in-law and her family again. They focused on 3 rooms, living, dining and a weird bedroom. I spent time in the kitchen and in the back yard. That's where my memories are. I didn't know I would be seeing some of the family and that was neat.

I really wished they would have cut out the sheetrock where the kids measurements were. Mary's sisters both lost sons, Claires son died about 3 yrs ago at 17 and she mentions how hard it is going to be to paint over his name. I lost it right there.

The episode will be on again next Saturday at 7:30 if you can catch it.

I saw that show this past weekend on A&E.  I recalled seeing a strange dining room layout.  They did a really nice job of painting and staging.  Did it sell after that?

Bruce, They did do a nice job on the house, they've received offers but no sale yet. I was told on Sunday they are going thru a counter offer stage.
