About Showhomes

Showhomes franchisees help home owners and real estate agents make vacant houses more appealing to buyers by filling them with furniture, accessories and art. They also provide home managers to live in and manage the house until it's sold, pay all or part of the utilities and reduce the risk of vandalism. The company is based in Nashville, Tennessee, and has been franchising since 1994.
