About Showhomes
Founded in 1986, the Showhomes® franchise system has helped Realtors® and homeowners sell more than 25,000 residential properties worth more than $8.5 billion, by transforming high-end vacant houses into fully-furnished, inviting, valued Showhomes homes. Currently serving prominent communities in 18 states, the Showhomes system is a rapidly expanding franchise with nearly 60 offices nationwide. Boasting the expertise of long-time real estate and interior design professionals, Showhomes businesses are a one-stop-shop for home staging, home redesign, “One-Day Makeovers” for currently occupied homes, and the proprietary Home Manager™ program – a proven model to get upscale vacant homes sold faster. Many major national media outlets in the U.S. have praised the work of Showhomes businesses and the brand has been prominently featured on Oprah, HGTV, DIY Network and the Travel Channel.

Why Showhomes?

The National Association of REALTORS®' annual profile of home staging for 2015 revealed a whopping 81 percent of REALTORS® representing buyers confirm their buyers can better visualize themselves in a home that is staged. As the housing market has remained fairly unpredictable, Showhomes, the nation’s leader in home staging and design, has continued its track record of being a market-proof business model with another consecutive year of revenue increases and unit growth. 

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Showhomes is the only home staging and one-day makeover franchise in existence and has more than 61 locations in 20 states. Throughout the company’s history, the range of services has evolved from a sole focus on home management to include traditional home staging and one-day makeovers.
