Starting a Home Inspection Business

The Most Exciting Opportunity You've Never Considered

You may have been considering franchise opportunities for some time but have not yet narrowed your options or made a final decision on the type of business you would like to own. If this describes you, then now is the perfect time to explore a high-demand franchise in the home services sector that you many find to be a diamond in the rough.

A home inspection franchise with HouseMaster® could be just the opportunity you are looking for but didn't know existed. We have been awarding franchise businesses to entrepreneurs for over four decades and have established our brand as the preeminent name in the home inspection industry.

Why HouseMaster?

Home Inspections Done Right for Over 40 Years

The HouseMaster home and building inspection franchise system was founded in 1979. Since then, we have grown to over 300 locally owned and operated offices across North America. Our trusted team of inspectors has collectively performed over 2.5 million inspections for prospective homebuyers.

HouseMaster is far and away, the premier brand in the field. We've helped millions of home buyers and sellers make informed decisions by consistently offering the highest-rated inspections in the category. We know first-hand that home is where the heart is – our franchise owners ensure it every day.

The Power Behind the Brand
The HouseMaster Brand is the first home inspection company to franchise and hands-down the most experienced franchise with over 40 years of brand recognition.

We have pioneered every significant advancement, including introducing ASHI, the first industry trade association to set home inspection standards, and NIBI, a premier home inspection education, and certification resource.

We introduced the first on-site written report, agent indemnification program, and online training programs. We continue to lead the way in technology, training, and support.

Our average franchisee has been with the HouseMaster system for over 12 years, and our average gross sales are the highest in the industry. For us, happy customers and happy franchise owners mean great business success!

Why The Home Inspection Industry?

A Promising Future Driven by Increasing Demand

It is no secret that a U.S. housing shortage has driven home prices higher in many areas of the country over the past few years. And the work-from-home revolution has fueled worker migration, keeping home resale activity exceptionally strong.

We expect the demand for home inspections to grow with industry organizations like the National Association of Realtors and the American Society of Home Inspectors continuing to educate buyers and sellers on the importance of these services.

Benefits of Owning a Home Service Franchise Like Home Inspection

Owning a home services franchise, like a home inspection business, can come with several meaningful benefits, including:

Speed to Get Up and Running
You will get to build your business much faster, thanks to the tools and support provided by the franchise. This allows you to start your business with a trusted name and time-tested operating procedures.

Tap into Existing Customers
Opening a home services franchise within the Neighborly® family of brands, provides for an introduction of your new business to the brands’ existing customers in the market.

No Need for Permanent Office
A significant benefit of operating a home services business is keeping expenses and overhead low by working from home.

Affordability
Launching a franchise is often a lot more affordable than starting your business from the ground up. With HouseMaster, as part of Neighborly, we are excited to offer franchise owners the opportunity for membership in our preferred vendor discount and rebate program.

ProTradeNet® is an asset that greatly differentiates us from our competitors. With the power of this program, we can offer supplies and products to our franchise owners at discounted prices not available to independent business owners. In addition, we offer a rebate program, which has resulted in hundreds of thousands of annual rebates systemwide.

Established Operating Systems
With a home services franchise, you get access to systems that have worked time and time again. Established technologies can manage accounting, marketing, and admin tasks.

Ideal Franchise Owner

Over four decades of experience working with franchise owners has consistently reaffirmed the characteristics we see that successful home inspection franchisees generally share. Beyond the universal desire to own your business, if you identify with any or all of the following qualities, then a HouseMaster franchise could be a great fit.

Business Acumen
Running a franchise requires skill, experience, and knowledge related to the various facets of business, especially sales and marketing. You don't have to be a proven, all-around business expert, but the more experience you have, the better.

Bedside Manner
What we do is driven by care. We look for owners who find joy in building and maintaining relationships and approaching fellow franchise owners, local real estate professionals, and every customer with compassion.

Love of All Things Home
Everyone in the HouseMaster system is motivated by a strong interest and sometimes inexplicable fondness for a home's design, architecture, structure, and maintenance. We love houses. And we think you should, too.

Get the Foundation for Business Success

HouseMaster franchise owners have the opportunity to work in one of the most important industries in the world: residential real estate. And Neighborly ensures you'll have the tools and systems you need to serve your community with success.

From marketing and advertising to training and development, the Neighborly system stands behind every franchise owner to assist with operations today – and growth for tomorrow.
