About Showhomes

Showhomes began in 1986 with the concept of transforming vacant houses — often seen by buyers as stale, lifeless and unappealing — into fully furnished, inviting, valued show homes. Now, in the brand’s fourth decade of service to homeowners and their realtors, Showhomes has become America's premier home staging franchise coast-to-coast.

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 staging.

Showhomes helps homeowners appeal to buyers by making homes move-in ready. With the brand’s on-trend exclusive Showhomes color palettes and updating-certification program, the brand revamps homes with fresh paint, flooring and other cosmetic updates. Showhomes can also help redesign the home, using what the client already has in their occupied homes to change a space with placement and creative applications. For Showhomes clients considering a new look for their home or wanting to prepare their home to sell, Showhomes can help with decorating trends, furniture placement, color choices, home improvement and much more. When clients take advantage of Showhomes’ home updates or redesign, homeowners get the biggest bang for their buck when preparing their home for going on the market.

Also, Showhomes matches high-end vacant homes for sale with people who own beautiful furniture, artwork and accessories that need temporary housing. Showhomes can also provide a live-in professional caretaker who cares for the client’s home and keeps it in show-to-sell condition while giving the client peace of mind that their home is safe and sound. 

The Power of Home Staging with Showhomes

Why Showhomes? Why Now?

The luxury real estate service franchise concluded 2019 up 32% in gross revenue and is climbing toward the top of the $99 billion home services industry in the new decade.

Showhomes spent the past few years building out its core revenue streams beyond home staging and management to include design updates and renovation. Recognizing the significance of the pivot on the luxury real estate services space as a whole, a number of franchise industry publications doled out some much-deserved recognition to the brand. Not only did Franchise Business Review induct Showhomes into its 2019 Hall of Fame class (meaning the publication has named the brand a top franchise for 10 years), but the brand was also named among 1851 Franchise’s top real estate franchises to watch in 2020 and was highlighted in a CNBC piece as one of the top low-cost franchise opportunities on the market. 

There are numerous "top franchise" lists out there, but Franchise Business Review's annual Franchisee Satisfaction Awards are the only franchise ranking based on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Each year they survey over 26,000 actual franchise owners, representing more than 350 leading franchise brands, to identify the Top 50 Franchises. Showhomes has consistently earned a “Top 50” Award in the Real Estate category.  They have also been awarded the FBR Hall of Fame Award for 10 years of franchisee satisfaction excellence.

In addition, Showhomes franchisees consistently average top customer satisfaction scores using the well-recognized NPS measurement. The brand ranks alongside successful brands such as Apple, Costco, Starbucks and Amazon.

The brand’s one-stop-shop model creates recurring revenue streams for franchisees and the potential to build a large scale home based business. With the potential for consistent revenue, recurring revenue streams) and steady demand despite economic conditions, the solid unit economics of the brand’s multi-faceted business model has made Showhomes a major brand in the real estate industry.

Showhomes’ training and support infrastructure also stands out in the industry. Franchisees have access to an Online Showhomes University, one-on-one business coach, proprietary customer relationship management (CRM) software, online operations manual, initial hands-on training in Nashville and ongoing training support, local website creation and hosting, search engine optimization (SEO), social media management, annual conference and regional meetings, a national PR firm and much more. 

The brand’s recession-resistant business model is viable in various market conditions. Showhomes offers multiple revenue streams that have potential in “hot” real estate markets and “soft” market conditions. Showhomes has continued to provide exceptional services to its clients for more than 30 years in every type of economic climate.

The Showhomes franchise opportunity also offers an unparalleled level of flexibility that allows owners to work from home and spend more time with their family.

Franchisee Stories

Why is Now the Time to Invest?

"Home staging used to be optional. Today, it's a necessity in selling a house,” said Barbara Corcoran, businesswoman and "Shark" investor on ABC's Shark Tank.

In 2019 Showhomes’ total gross revenue increased 32% from 2018, breaking company records. In addition, the brand closed out the year with a whopping 67% year-over-year increase from December 2018.   

With 9 out of 10 buyers previewing or finding their homes online, presentation has never been more important. A survey by Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corp found that staged homes spent half the time on the market compared to non-staged homes and sold for more than 6% above the asking price. 81 percent of homebuyers say it is easier to visualize the property as a future home when it’s staged, according to the National Association of Realtors and 5.51 million existing homes were sold in 2017.

Showhomes has also adapted to the demands brought on by COVID-19, in part, by ramping up its marketing support and digital efforts for franchisees. The brand now offers virtual consultations and electronic proposals. Showhomes has also rolled out a customizable online quoting tool and provided its franchise system with an enterprise version of Zoom to allow for seamless video conferences.

With a proven business model, a home-based opportunity, innovative services and over 60 units nationwide, the time has never been better to join the Showhomes team.
