How Sellers can save in a Buyer's Market

A buyer's market can be a tough time for sellers. 

The longer your home sits on the market, the more you spend on carrying costs each month (HOA fees and utilities) - these can add up fast.  
When a seller stages with Showhomes Houston, we not only set the home up for marketing success, we minimize these carrying costs- saving sellers money while giving them peace of mind until the home sells. 

How do we do it-  With our trusted and insured Home Manager program.

What is a Home Manager-

A Home Manager is a live-in caretaker who maintains your staged home and let's Realtors show the home while also paying a monthly fee to stay in the home with no lease. 

Showhomes painstakingly selects and trains each Home Manager in accordance with the system we've developed through three decades of experience.

How can I benefit from a Home Manager-

A Home Manager benefits the Homeowner by caring for the home and reducing the Homeowner's carrying costs. Some examples of carrying costs that a Home Manager would cover would be electricity, gas, and water- plus you have the ability to take advantage of our national insurance program.

The Home Manager also assists the Realtor's efforts by readying the house for showings. Homes staged with live-in Home Managers typically out-perform vacant homes by large margins.

Benefits include:

  • The home is ALWAYS show-ready (cleanliness, temperature, and odor are under control)
  • Peace-of-mind in knowing the home is clean and secure
  • Full Vacant Staging at reduced cost
  • Utilities & minor maintenance items are paid by the Home Manager
  • Vacant Home Insurance is not required
  • The home stays staged until it sells - no renewal fees after initial setup
  • Showhomes and the Home Manager carry damage and liability coverage

Realtors also like the program since the home is always show-ready:

  • NO SURPRISES - the Home Manager performs a detailed checklist before every showing
  • The Home Manager is required to vacate for every showing and open house

It's a win/win relationship.
