Company Offers Rent-a-Residents

A company called Showhomes Management LLC is taking staging one step further by hiring resident managers to occupy vacant high-end homes, furnish them, and keep them spotless until they sell.

There are about 2.2 million vacant homes for sale, according to census data. And that means the Nashville-based company, which has business operations is 34 states, is doing fabulously.

“I hate to be the one positive person in the real estate market,” he said. “We’re really excited about the bust because there are so many vacant homes. We can be really selective — almost picky,” says Thom Scott, vice president of operations.

Home managers actually pay Showhomes to do the job – about $1,200 a month to live in the houses, which are often multi-million dollar mansions. In return for the bargain rent, they are expected to fill the homes with nice furniture and keep the properties open house ready. The deal lasts until the home sells – usually five or six months.

Scott says finding managers isn’t hard. Often people who have just sold their own expensive home sign on. Newly transferred executives are also likely candidates.

5 Reasons You Need a REALTOR®

1. A real estate transaction is complicated. In most cases, buying or selling a home requires disclosure forms, inspection reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, deeds, and multi-page government-mandated settlement statements. A knowledgeable guide through this complexity can help you avoid delays or costly mistakes.

2. Selling or buying a home is time consuming. Even in a strong market, homes in our area stay on the market for an average of ____ days. And it usually takes another 60 days or so for the transaction to close after an offer is accepted.

3. Real estate has its own language. If you don’t know a CMA from a PUD, you can understand why it’s important to work with someone who speaks that language.

4. REALTORS® have done it before. Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. And even if you’ve done it before, laws and regulations change. That’s why having an expert on your side is critical.

5. REALTORS® provide objectivity. Since a home often symbolizes family, rest, and security, not just four walls and roof, home selling or buying is often a very emotional undertaking. And for most people, a home is the biggest purchase they’ll every make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you keep focused on both the business and emotional issues most important to you.
