A Charlestown resident and his brother will be featured on a new real estate show on A&E that airs this weekend.
Real Estate broker John Griffin of Charlestown, along with his brother Danny, also a real estate broker, will star in the new "60 Seconds to Sell" series that begins Saturday, June 14 at 12 p.m. on A&E.
The show highlights the brothers who aim to sell homes within 60 seconds by using a technique they refer to as "The Quick Sale Auction," through which they help homeowners who need to sell their homes quickly by asking them to do "homework" and make simple improvements to the property.
"Then we list the house for half the asking price," John Griffin said in a statement. "This is the craziest part because the homeowners usually have a panic attack when we tell them our plan."
The Griffins then great buzz around the house to bring in a large open house crowd, after which they auction the home off to the highest bidder.
"It's a huge risk, but when it works, it pays off big time," Danny Griffin said in a statement. "We don't just sell the house, we sell it fast and a lot of times for even more than what the sellers are hoping for."
Each episode aims to highlight the emotional impacts of homeowners who are looking to sell their homes.
