Congratulations to Showhomes Madison in Madison, WI!
I don't know about your high school kids, but I imagine if mine built a house, it might have more than a few flaws.
Vocational high school students in the Oregon School District in Madison, Wisconsin did just that. They built two houses for school projects and put both on the market for sale to recoup expenses. These were very nice, well-built homes priced in the $300,000 range. Both homes sat on the market for more than a year empty.
The school district hired Showhomes to stage the home and provide a live-in Home Manager. Despite the sluggish market, the first home sold in 35 days, and the second home sold in 57 days.
Here are a couple of pictures of the staging that sold the house:
The school district was thrilled, and happy enough to write a testimonial for Showhomes (see below.) What do you think?
|"After a full year of trying to sell this house, we decided to contract with Showhomes. They did a Great Job staging with a live-in Home Manager. We were able to raise our price and still receive three contracts within 35 days! We are so pleased with Showhomes. They bring value and transform a House to a Valued Home. I am convinced that this is the only way to market a home. Quick results made me a believer in Showhomes staging. They are currently helping us with our second home and we received an offer within 3 weeks after it was staged."|
