Selling a home in 2020 is a tricky business. With so many resources at their fingertips, buyers these days are as savvy as ever. The longer your home sits unsold on the market, the more money you risk losing on the sale. But even with modern technology and information at the push of a button, one thing about homes has held true – your house has to look AMAZING to buyers – in online listings and in person – to achieve full value. So what can you do if your home is just stalled on the market with no offers? You send Tanya Memme to the rescue.

With a ticking clock and thousands of dollars on the line, Tanya will have to get busy fast in order to sell this house!
