Chicago Success Story

Home Stager with Showhomes

Congrats to Barbara Bliss, owner of Showhomes North Shore in Chicago!

She staged this $799k home in Evanston that had been on the market for sale for over 15 months. Showhomes moved in a Home Manager and the home went under contract and sold for 97% of list price in less than 60 days!

Selling a home vacant in today's market is the kiss of death; there are simply too many properties for sale competing and a home needs every advantage it can get. There is good news in today's market: people are still buying homes and rates are still low. There are just far too many homes for sale.

Congratulations to this homeowner and Realtor for using Showhomes to stage and sell this home!

I can see why, staging pays and helps buyers see the possibilities.

We have been moving a lot of homes staged with live-in Home Managers these days. Homeowners and Realtors are finding out that it is both the most economical solution to staging and produces the best sales result.
