Sell This House: Ping Edition

A&E has a TV show called Sell This House. You can guess what it’s about, but I’ll tell you anyway: people are trying to sell their houses, they aren’t, and people help them do it. Once you’ve seen perhaps 3 episodes of this show, though, a pattern becomes clear on how to do it.

Which means that you don’t need to watch this show. Ever. Here’s how to sell this… er, that house:

  1. Get a storage room or rent a storage space.
  2. Put all of your stuff in it that isn’t furniture.
  3. Move the furniture around.

That’s it. Every episode I’ve seen has utilized this technique. You don’t need to do anything else. That’s it. If you want a snarky host, one of us can come over and tell you that everything sucks, if you like.

You forgot about painting. On every home selling show the experts insist that the homeowners paint any room that isn’t white.

4. A fresh coat of neutral paint does wonders!

What is this then?
