HOME MANAGER STAGING
HOME MANAGER STAGINGShowhomes matches high-end vacant homes for sale with beautiful furniture, artwork, and accessories. We can provide a live-in professional caretaker who cares for your home and keeps your home in show to sell condition while giving you the peace of mind that your home is safe and sound. What does all that mean to you? Great staging at a fraction of traditional staging costs paid at closing, a reduction in your overall carrying costs, care of your home from the inside and out, statistically faster sales and significantly higher offers than a similar vacant home that is for sale. Showhomes also provides up to $5 million in additional insurance coverage for you and your home.
Experienced Real Estate Agents know that a home that is beautifully staged tends to sell faster than a house that is not. Also, vacant houses are often perceived to have a lower value than homes that are staged and can often receive "low-ball" offers from buyers who perceive that the owner is desperate to sell.
Showhomes provides customized staging solutions tailored to each home. Staging options include design and decorating by staging professionals, whole house staging or partial home stagings as well.
Showhomes is America's Leader in Home Staging with a proven method to stage and market your home for sale. Staging is the most effective way to sell properties in today's market.
"Home staging is no longer optional in this real estate market, but a MUST. It's what will make the difference in whether your home sells or not." - Real Estate Mogul Barbara Corcoran In today's real estate market, buyers have lots of choices when it comes to buying a home. Successful real estate agents know that beautifully designed and staged homes have more buyer appeal than vacant or non-staged homes. Statistics have shown that staged homes sell faster, bring higher offers and create happier sellers. Staging is the best marketing strategy available with proven results.
Interested in a new look for your home? Love those designer makeover shows and wish someone would makeover your home? Are you selling your home and need help making it look perfect for showings? Interested in staging to get the "model home" look that captures premium buyers? If you're looking for some design ideas for your current home or have a home on the market for sale that needs some makeover magic, we can help. Staging your home by a professional stager is the most cost effective way to refresh your home. A professional stager can help with decorating trends, furniture placement, color choices, home improvement and much more. Whether you're ready for a new "look" or selling a home, Showhomes can help.
No one wants to spend money on the home they are getting ready to sell. However, most buyers are looking for a move-in-ready house with fresh paint and flooring. Very few buyers want more work and expense to update the home they will purchase. To appeal to the broadest base of buyers and to increase the value of your home, a few changes can provide the greatest return on investment when selling your home. Beyond basic de-cluttering and cleaning, Showhomes can assist with making these important changes for you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What is home staging?When a home is "staged", it's furnished and decorated in a way that's carefully designed to maximize the home's appeal to prospective buyers.
- What benefits does home staging offer to a Homeowner?A properly staged home has just the right quality and quantity of furnishings for a buyer to understand how rooms function and how spaces flow. Staging creates warmth, life, and positive emotion. Good staging avoids clutter or overly personalized decor that might be a turn-off to some. It maximizes the home's strengths while minimizing any shortcomings. Staging engages prospective buyers, increases their interest and perception of value. A prospective buyer becomes more likely to buy!
- Do you provide staging services for owner-occupied homes?Yes, we are a full service staging organization and can provide help for homes that are occupied either for sale or for those who just want to update the look of their property.
- What is a Home Manager?A Home Manager is an individual or family who assists Showhomes by living in a Showhome and caring for it while it's on the market. Showhomes painstakingly selects and trains each Home Manager in accordance with the system we've developed through three decades of experience.
- Why would I use a Home Manager to help sell my home?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 utilities, gas, water, and the ability to take advantage of the savings of our national insurance program. The Home Manager helps in the sales effort by readying the house for showings and through the added life and emotional appeal their belongings contribute. Homes staged with live-in Home Managers typically out-perform vacant homes by large margins.
- Is a Home Manager present during showings?No, Home Managers are not present during showings. Prospective buyers won't know that your home is even staged; it will simply look and feel like a homeowner lives in and loves the home. Everything is in its place and your home shows as well or better than it would if you still lived there.
- How is Showhomes different from others who offer staging services?Life sells homes. Buying a home is an emotional decision for most people and Showhomes is unique in the way it helps to sell homes. Using a live in Home Manager assures you that the entire home is staged to perfection and that it is always tuned up and in show-to-sell condition. Because of this, your home is far less vulnerable to low-ball offers than it would be if it were simply staged with furniture.
- Does Showhomes act as a Realtor?No. Showhomes provides staging services that make your home far more attractive to prospective buyers. Almost all Showhomes are listed by full-service Realtors. Showhomes does not represent buyers or sellers in the real estate transaction; that is the service your Realtor is trained and licensed to provide.
- Does Showhomes offer staging services without Home Managers?Yes. If you are interested in staging services without a Home Manager contact your local office. Pricing varies by location.
- Is smoking allowed in a Showhome?No. Our promise to homeowners is a smoke free home that appeals to the largest percentage of prospective buyers.
- What happens when a Showhome sells?As soon as you accept an offer, we begin the process of relocating our Home Manager. Unlike a tenant, our Home Managers are under contract to move on short notice and once we succeed in selling your home, we are often ready to begin staging another home. We return your home to you in as good or even better condition than when we received it and the new buyers get a fresh, clean home to move into.
- What are the benefits of being a Home Manager?Flexibility, low housing costs, short or long-term housing solution, no long term committment.
