POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI) USA is returning trust, safety and security to a fractured housing market with an innovative home inspection business poised for U.S. prominence.
To meet the needs of a steadily recovering market, ABCHI today announced an aggressive growth strategy, which calls for expanding from nearly 30 U.S. offices today to more than 100 by 2015. The company’s U.S. growth expectations will make it the world’s largest home inspection business.
“Out of the ashes of a burst bubble, A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections is emerging as a key piece of the puzzle to solve the U.S. housing sector’s recovery,” said Bill Redfern, founder, president and CEO of Pompano Beach, Fla.-based ABCHI USA. “The strength of A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections is grounded in the support we offer franchisees. It’s the foundation of what we do. We take deep pride in our ability to provide outstanding training, ongoing marketing assistance and a collection of proven processes and systems to help them run their businesses as efficiently as possible.”
Already, ABCHI is Canada’s largest home inspection franchise with more than 120 branches throughout the country. Additionally, the company has grown into Chile, the Czech Republic, New Zealand and Slovakia.
“This is all taking shape because we’ve worked diligently to become the most trusted home inspection business in North America,” added Redfern, who is a seasoned industry executive with more than two decades of experience developing, owning and managing real estate.
In addition to his real estate investments and management roles, Redfern worked as a real estate broker for 10 years. ABCHI is the only major home inspection company with a foundation deeply rooted in the real estate industry.
Currently, ABCHI franchise units are seeing 15 percent growth in revenue because of the rebounding economy, an improving housing market and ABCHI’s proven business model. With demand growing for reliable and professional home inspections that publish easy to understand results, the company is filling a void in what is often seen as an ad hoc home inspection industry. Using proprietary software, ABCHI creates comprehensive reports for consumers that help them make more informed decisions about homes they are considering purchasing. A growing number of real estate agents are also partnering with the home inspection service, taking a proactive approach to attract homebuyers to properties.
“The industry is peeling away the effects of the crash,” Redfern said. “Transparency is more important than ever before, and our home inspection business is paving the way for home buyers and sellers.”
Ideal for corporate escapees in search of greater work-life balance, an opportunity to work from home and a fast growing sector with unlimited potential, ABCHI offers franchise investors a turnkey operation. According to company estimates, franchisees can earn a healthy living working less than eight hours a day following the ABCHI business model. With few additional startup costs, the total franchise fee is $29,900, but has been reduced to $19,990 for a limited time. The low-cost franchise investment includes training, marketing tools and ongoing support from the home office.
“We are seeking to award franchises with professional experience who may be tired of working for someone else or who are seeking a new career path,” Redfern said. “The right franchisee for us are people who want to take control of their career and invest in a proven formula to achieve that. The key to this franchise is in the quality of work one puts into it, not in the quantity of hours worked.”
Redfern started his home inspection business in Canada in the mid-2000s, remarkably turning it into the largest home inspection franchise in that country after only two years of franchising. His track record of success stems from his remarkable attention to detail. Every ABCHI inspector is insured and certified above licensing standards, going beyond what states require of independent home inspectors.
