'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' winner Sadie Holmes holds garage sale at foreclosed house



ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - The winner of a lavish home from the ABC television show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is selling some of the furnishings that the network gave her.

Sadie Holmes won the house in 2006.

The show built the mansion on Amanda Street in Altamonte Springs for Holmes and her children based on her compelling life story. She beat an addiction to crack and started a nonprofit food pantry.

She needed money to run the business so she took out a $50,000 mortgage on her house.

Holmes couldn't keep up with the payments, so earlier in May the title was given to the mortgage holders.

Thursday, some of the stuff remains for sale on the front lawn. The entire front yard and driveway was filled. From Christmas decorations to clothes, it all had to go.

There were even four bathroom sinks for sale.

Neighbor Nick Tanner said the show set them up to fail.

"I don't think they think ahead when they're making all these home improvements. They don't realize their property (taxes) are going to go up. Their air bills are going to go up, electricity. All these other things," Tanner said.

Holmes didn't answer any questions Thursday.

"God is in control," Holmes said.

Holmes would not say how much she made off the yard sale, and it is unknown when she has to move out.

Holmes' attorney did not respond to Channel 9's emails for comment.
