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.
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.
