Sell This House is an American reality television series that premiered July 6, 2003, on A&E. Host Tanya Memme helps homeowners who are having trouble selling their houses. For its ninth season, the show's name was changed to Sell This House: Extreme and the format expanded to one hour. Construction expert Charlie Frattini and designer Daniel Kucan joined the cast.[1]

Premise[edit]

In seasons 1 through 9, cameras were set up to record prospective buyers' reactions in a one-day open house, followed by Memme showing and discussing the comments with the homeowners. Afterward, designer Roger Hazard makes his evaluation. He, Memme, the sellers, and their friends and family then work to stage the house, fixing, minimizing or hiding any problems he has found, on a budget of a few hundred dollars. This generally involves painting, removing excess clutter and personal items, and rearranging furniture. Finally, the same potential buyers are brought back for a second walkthrough.

In May 2020, A+E Networks announced the series would be returning for its tenth season. Season 10 premiered on May 18, 2020, and the series will now air on FYI.[2] The latest season focuses on houses that have been sitting on the market for over 100 days. Memme starts by conducting an open house to get feedback from buyers, before working with a local designer to transform the homes. After re-listing the homes online and conducting a new round of open house inspections, viewers see the transformation, hear prospective buyer feedback, and find out for what price the home listed and if it sold.
