NASHVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) August 23, 2016
Showhomes®, the nation’s largest and most successful home staging franchise known for using a variety of unique services to sell homes faster and for top dollar, continued to expand its reach in communities across the country, recording a record start to the first half of 2016 in the process. Showhomes closed Q2 by marking its highest ever nationwide revenue increase.
In the month of June alone, Showhomes’ total nationwide revenue was up a staggering 23 percent over June 2015. Factoring in Q1 revenue, the brand’s jump in year-to-date revenue is even more impressive, up 36 percent compared to the same period last year. Showhomes’ success is especially evident in markets like Minneapolis, Tampa and Volusia County, Florida, where local Showhomes franchises set all-time individual revenue records.
“Showhomes is growing at an incredibly rapid rate and we attribute that to one thing: the overwhelming positive response from the communities we serve,” said Matt Kelton, Showhomes’ Chief Operating Officer. “Our strong second quarter proves once again why our business model perfectly positions our brand for quick expansion, and our passionate franchisees are capturing that momentum. Showhomes will also be expanding into even more new communities as we continue into the second half of 2016.”
To fuel the brand’s impressive growth even further Showhomes offers a variety of value-added services, like the brand’s proprietary Home Manager™ program, that go far beyond those offered by other traditional home staging companies. Showhomes’ Home Manager program matches high-end, vacant homes currently on the market with individuals or families who have beautiful furniture, artwork and accessories, but are in need of temporary housing. Acting as professional caretakers, the Home Managers keep the home in “show to sell” condition, providing peace of mind to homeowners and staging services at a fraction of the traditional cost. Showhomes also provides up to $5 million in additional insurance coverage for any home utilizing the Home Manager Program.
In addition to its superior home staging services and Home Manager program the brand also offers home updates, giving homeowners the ability to hire one company, rather than a host of sub-contractors, to update key selling points like paint colors and flooring. Each of these unique services opens the door to four different revenue streams for local business owners, ultimately creating consistency in the naturally volatile real estate industry.
As the U.S. housing market continues to improve, Showhomes plans to leverage its position as an industry leader to dominate an even bigger piece of the home staging industry’s market share. Showhomes now boasts 58 locations in 18 states, and has helped facilitate the sale of nearly $30 billion in residential real estate. Within the next three years, Showhomes plans to double the size of its franchise operation to 125 total units.
“Over the last three decades, Showhomes has grown to become so much more than just a traditional home staging company,” Kelton said. “We continue to evolve to adapt to the shifting real estate industry, and that’s why Showhomes growth potential is unlimited. We are poised to continue our record setting growth and to dominate the home staging industry in the months and years to come.”
