Maybe it was the realtor that gave the clients "the impression" that the house had sold. But it seems likely that this was done to give the episode a nice and neat ending.

Notice this line from the post: "The show was already finalized and edited (just weeks before air). Too late to be pulled."

Too late to be pulled, too late to be re-edited, but not too late to add a card at the end that said that the sale didn't go through.

Clearly I'm watching too many of these shows, too!

They pre-tape two endings for the show -- one "We sold it!" and one "We're waiting for an offer." They go with whichever one is true at the time of editing. That doesn't mean that things can't change after the show has been edited with one ending.

We know the couple whose house was used in one of the recent "Designed to Sell" shows. You know that shot at the end when they have "prospective" buyers walk through the house and comment on it? We recognized every single one of those prospective buyers: they were friends or work-related acquaintances of the owners.

The whole thing is staged for TV. There's very little "reality" about it.

I'm not saying it's not true, but I always found it amazing that the 'couple' bought the house for 'X' dollars and it's 40% more in 2 years after applying some paint.
