Showhomes Greater Raleigh

Showhomes home staging in Greater Raleigh offers homeowners an opportunity to get the best return on their investment. Showhomes helps sellers get the highest and best offers. We help sellers get their homes ready for sale, not just with staging, but also cosmetic updates to truly make sure the home stands out from the crowd.

Staging ensures you make a great first impression. Whether someone sees your home for the first time in photos or prospective buyers step through your front door, we help them establish an immediate emotional connection with the home. They see how much it has to offer and feel good about making an offer.

Our numbers speak volumes.

In 2022, the average time on the market for a vacant staged home was 9.5 days versus 14 days* for unstaged homes. This is 30% less time on the market.
Listings with Showhomes home staging in Greater Raleigh sell for a higher price. Our average original list-to-sales price was 106.8% versus 102%.*
If you listed your home for $500,000 last year (below the average Wake County price), your home would have sold, on average, for $510,000.
Had you staged your home with Showhomes, you had a chance for it to have sold, on average, for $538,000! That’s an additional $28,000 made from a staging investment.

Greater Raleigh has a hot selling market. There’s a lot of population growth and lots of new construction. There is also a lot of job growth in the area.
Over the past two years, there has been an incredible seller’s market, with homes selling in just 10 days (2021) and 14 days (2022) on average.* North Carolina continues to see population growth. Good weather, the moderate cost of living, and a healthy job market all play a role in attracting people to the area. The area’s growth is partly spurred by major employers including Google, Amazon, Apple, and others moving to the area.

This last November/December, we noticed a drastic change in the housing market. Homes sold, on average, within 29 Days (November) and 34 Days (December). This slowdown also impacted the original list-to-sales prices. Wake County’s average for 2022 was 102.5%, but that declined to 96.0% in December.

These numbers are still healthy. But it’s a big contrast from last spring and shows the need for sellers to ensure their homes stand out in the market. Showhomes can help. With an investment in home staging in Greater Raleigh, you’ll get the best return and quickest sale possible.

  • Showhomes Greater Raleigh did a fantastic job staging our model home at 800 St Mary's Apartments! We're so pleased with their work. They pulled colors from our Clubhouse design and incorporated this into the model. It has made such a huge difference in this space and we love being able to show it off. We highly recommend Showhomes if you're looking for design ideas in your empty space!

  • We have had two very recent interactions: one with staging and another with enhancements. Both had wonderful results. The team was flexible and easy to work with. The first home they helped us with, we sold quicker than a similar nearby home. The most recent made the home feel very clean not sterile, modern and homey. The modern home was beautiful, but the Showhomes team was able to enhance its finer points and make it feel modern, yet warm. I would recommend this team to help you and your clients get the most traffic for the sale of your home. A big Thank You to Leanne, Tara, and the Showhomes team.

  • This group of incredible people help make the home you're selling absolutely beautiful. Leanne has a wonderful design eye and fantastic ideas and Tara is always there to take your call, answer questions or give advise. The movers they use are very professional and take great care of the furniture being moved into and out of the house. They take extra care that they don't damage the walls. I am super impressed. I will be using this group again and again!

Home staging involves preparing a home for sale by expertly arranging the right furnishings, accessories, and artwork that result in a warm, inviting space that appeals to a broad range of home buyers. Decluttering and depersonalizing is another crucial element of the home staging process. By highlighting a home's key features and fostering a sense of flow and scale, home staging showcases your property's full potential. Making the property feel spacious, comfortable, and inviting invariably leads to a quicker sale at a higher price.

Establishing an emotional connection between a buyer and a property is the most cost-effective way to impact a property's value. Numerous studies (including statistics compiled by the National Association of Realtors) indicate that staged homes spend fewer days on market and sell for higher prices than their unstaged counterparts. Sellers who invest in home staging invariably receive higher, more competitive offers for their homes, resulting in an ROI of 6 to 10 times the cost of the service.

Yes, we offer a full suite of staging services, including staging occupied homes on the market as well as providing updates to those sellers who want their property to reflect current trends.

Home staging is both an art and a science – requiring knowledge of design, color, furniture placement, architectural flow, and the latest lifestyle trends. Showhomes has the expertise and the track record to create inviting and appealing environments that help sell homes quickly and for higher prices. We have carefully curated a wide array of furnishings, art, and accessories to enhance the look of your home. We would be glad to provide objective feedback on what must be done to make your home most attractive to potential buyers.

Yes, even if your home is already furnished, it can still benefit from staging. Home staging involves creating a neutral, welcoming, and appealing environment that showcases your home's best features and allows potential buyers to envision themselves living there. While you may love your current decor and furniture, it may not appeal to everyone and may not be the best way to showcase your home's features. Showhomes often works with existing furnishings and decor to create a more cohesive and attractive look that can help sell your home more quickly and for a higher price.

The most important rooms in a home that must be staged are the living room, the kitchen, the dining room, the primary bedroom, and the bathrooms. In addition to these critical areas, you should also consider staging any other areas of your home with unique or particularly valuable features, such as a home office, a family room, or a backyard patio, summer kitchen, or a pool deck.
