HouseMaster was the first company to franchise in the home inspection industry. Since our inception in 1979, HouseMaster has performed over two million home inspections and has grown to almost 400 franchises. Our company culture focuses on franchise relationships, support, technical proficiency, proven marketing methods, aggressive risk management tools and cutting edge technology. HouseMaster’s high level of success has earned us the #1 home inspection franchise ranking in Entrepreneur Magazine for 2009 and 2010. This year, HM was also named the number one home inspection franchise in Franchise Business Reviews Annual Franchise Satisfaction Survey.
Unlike other home inspection franchise companies, all of our franchisees are certified by our National Institute of Building Inspectors (NIBI). Our franchisees are committed to continued education and annual recertification. We have trained tens of thousands of agents over the years on everything from common conditions found on inspections, environmental concerns, risk management and pre-inspections. We’ve been a featured presenter at international real estate tradeshows and are a regular presenter at many local board meetings and new agent training programs.
Aggressive PR campaigns, and the success and reputation to back them up, have landed HouseMaster in the national spotlight. Interviewed by media giants such as the Associated Press, Fox Business, The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, HGTV, USA Today and the NY Times, HouseMaster is the recognized authority on everything home inspection.
Industry data shows that well-furnished, maintained homes sell at prices 10 percent to 20 percent higher than vacant houses—and they move 30 to 90 days faster. That’s the simple, yet ingenious concept behind Showhomes.
Our turnkey package includes whole-house furnishing, professional decorating, staging and a live-in home manager to maintain an inviting, clutter-free Showhome. Homeowners pay an initial set-up fee and a success fee when the home sells, which is greatly offset by reduced carrying costs for the house while it is in the Showhomes program. Homeowners also gain significantly higher average selling prices and an accelerated sale. The service is free to real estate agents.
Showhomes is a win/win proposition for agents, homeowners, franchisees and home managers. Homeowners save money on utilities, insurance and maintenance costs—and get top dollar for their properties. Realtors have a fully furnished, tastefully decorated listing in show-to-sell condition seven days a week–without the headaches of home management.
Home managers have the luxury of living in a gracious, well-appointed home for about what they would pay to rent a two-bedroom apartment. Franchisees participate in a full program for growing a successful real estate service business, with tremendous earnings potential. The more homes franchisees help to sell, and the faster and higher-priced the sales close, the more money franchisees make.
With 35 franchises in more than 21 states, Showhomes has helped sell more than $8 billion in residential real estate and over 25,000 homes since 1986.
