Franchise system provides owners lucrative ROI with low start-up costs as housing market heats up.
Showhomes, the rapidly expanding home staging franchise system, continues to prove its success as the real estate market finds its footing.
The brand was recently named one of the top 50 low-cost franchise opportunities in the U.S. by Franchise Business Review, a publication that highlights the top opportunities in the marketplace based solely on assessments from actual franchise owners. The publication, which compiled data by surveying 10,000 franchisees representing more than 135 brands, listed Showhomes based on the system’s leadership, training, support and financial outlook.
“We’re incredibly proud to be recognized by Franchise Business Review as a rewarding choice in home-staging,” said Matt Kelton, COO of Showhomes. “The business of making a house a home is gaining popularity and we’re excited to be part of the longevity and profitability of the growing marketplace.”
The low-cost start up investment for Showhomes starts at only $45,300 and yields some of the highest revenues in the home staging sector, securing its position as a proven model in a rapidly expanding industry.
Home staging is a multi-billion-dollar-per-year business and for a relatively low investment, those looking for an alternative career path can have a piece of the profit. Ideal candidates for Showhomes are those passionate about design or real estate. The brand can also serve as the perfect second revenue stream for real estate agents. Showhomes is a great opportunity for individuals looking for a flexible career path that is also fulfilling as well as cost-effective.
“Our sustained growth is a direct outcome of our passionate franchisees that see the value in a lucrative career with low start-up costs,” said Kelton. “We’re looking forward to our future successes as we continue to evolve and secure a bigger part of the marketplace.”
Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Showhomes is the only home staging and one-day makeover franchise in existence and has nearly 60 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. The brand is forecasting hitting the 100-unit mark in the next two years through a strategic growth strategy focusing on development in California, the Pacific Northwest and the Northeastern region of the United States.
