Company Celebrates its Tremendous Success in 2014 and Plans to Become Largest Home Inspections Firm in the World.
HALIFAX, Nova Scotia - A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI) is finishing up an outstanding 2014 filled with dozens of office openings and an increased presence around the world. The company continues to provide trust, safety and security to homebuyers and realtors through an innovative home inspection business model.
And, 2015 is projected to be even bigger and better.
Growth plans in 2015 call for another year of double-digit office increases in Canada, building on the incredible 16 additional franchises added in 2014 so far. And now, more realtors across Canada are recommending ABCHI, boosting the brand’s increase rate of inspections year over year to more than 15 percent in 2014.
“It is very rewarding and quite impressive to reflect on all of our talented franchise partners’ accomplishments across the globe this year,” said Bill Redfern, founder, president and CEO of ABCHI. “The success we have experienced with A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections is grounded in the strength of support the brand offers our home inspector franchise partners. We take pride in our ability to provide extensive training, ongoing marketing assistance and a collection of proven systems and processes to help franchise partners run an effective business. And the numbers reflect that it is paying off.”
Already, ABCHI is Canada’s largest home inspection business and it is on its way to becoming the largest in the world, growing steadily in North America, Europe, South America, New Zealand and beyond.
The success ABCHI franchise partners are currently experiencing is a reflection of both the incredible marketing horsepower and industry relationships as well as 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 firms, agents and mortgage companies are also commonly recognizing ABCHI franchise partners as unparalleled in working with their clients.
Ideal for corporate escapees in search of greater work-life balance, ABCHI offers franchise investors a turnkey operation. According to company estimates, franchise partners 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. The low-cost franchise investment includes training, marketing tools and ongoing support from the home office.
“We are seeking to award franchises to candidates who may be tired of working for someone else or who are seeking a new career path,” added Redfern, a former realtor who specifically trains franchise partners on the realtors side of the transaction and how to best work with all parties on a professional level. “The right franchise candidates 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 provinces and states require of independent home inspectors.
