Staging and Selling Homes with Strangers

Showhomes is a franchise business that helps home sellers stage their homes for market. They go one step further by actually putting "home managers" in your old home until it sells! The model keeps homes in "selling" condition and allows nomads to enjoy fun homes across the country.

Mike and Janine Callahan are both Showhomes franchisees and home managers. They have lived in 12 different homes since 2009. For the married pair, they say the experience offers a lot of fun and excitement. You have to be willing to move at a moments notice, but that means there is always a new adventure around the corner.

Janine Callahan handles the staging, and she has noticed it is integral to selling a home. The pair decorated their current home for the holiday season and potential buyers would never know that it isn't really their home.
