Overview

In today’s housing market, there’s a marked contrast between the houses that sell in a heartbeat and those that languish on the market.

 

The home that’s properly staged for the market clinches the deal while also maximizing the sale price. Cluttered, dirty, dark and old fashioned homes struggle to get noticed while in the same street better presented example are being snapped up in days. Cue the energetic, stylish, fun-loving House Doctor, Tracy Metro, whose goal is to prove that with a minimum investment, simple home-styling can turn dodgy décor into unrecognisable, show-home material.
