An American home staging company, Showhomes, is looking for home manager to help sell luxury homes in Potomac and Bethesda, Maryland. Showhomes has recently launched an office in Foxcrest Court, Potomac, in January, and since then, the staging company has been finding applicants and screening applications for home manager.
Home manager reside on the vacant homes, and transforming them into life-filled and inviting homes while real estate professionals try to sell them.
Applicants for the home manager posts are usually those who are relocating to an area — they can occupy a home while finding a new place, which is a win-win situation for they can look-after the house.
According to the business development manager at Potomac Showhomes, Scott Cillay, homebuyers often wants to have someone else’s property and a vacant house is not as inviting as the “lived-in” home.
A home manager for the company makes sure that the home is well-cared for, because homes with people living in it are usually more attractive and sell for higher prices than empty houses.
But a home manger are first required to pass a background and lifestyle before occupying a vacant luxury home, they have to be non-smokers, do not own pets, provide own furniture appropriate for the house, and must pay at least 1/4 to 1/3 of what the current market rent rate would be — to be eligible with the program.
Showhomes in Chevy Chase, Potomac and Bethesda are currently looking for applicants for the post. A home manager will be working with local real estate firms to form partnerships.
