NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Home sales continue to rise as the housing industry strengthens, and interest rates for mortgages approach record lows since 2013. With a shift in the financing marketplace, low rates give new home buyers and home refinancers six percent more buying power than last year. These changes are leading to an increase in home sales, which has a significant impact on related businesses that assist in the sales process, like the home inspection industry.
The home inspection industry, which has been shaped alongside the evolution of the real estate industry, is continuing to grow both hyper-local and national networks prepared to assess homes during the selling process. The sustained growth is opening the path for leading franchise networks like WIN Home Inspection to further expand its system of franchisees across the country, and build meaningful relationships with real estate brokers.
WIN Home Inspection, a leader in the home inspection industry, currently has over 150 owners operating in 190 designated markets, and has created a network of more than 200 home inspectors. WIN will be adding to its network of franchise owners and inspectors, by bringing on 24 new operators by the end of this year, with up to 30 new operators slated for 2017, with a strategic focus on Texas, Florida, California, Arizona and Atlanta.
“The WIN brand has spent more than 20 years developing the WIN Operating System, becoming experts on home inspection and the policies impacting the home sales process,” said Steve Wadlington, president of WIN Home Inspection. “Our strategic franchise partners are true experts in the field, and provide invaluable expertise and confidence during the crucial moment for a home buyer or seller.”
As the home improvement industry has been a growing field as the housing market has improved in recent years, opportunities abound for prospective business owners. WIN Home Inspection has maintained a consistent growth across its system through strategic, targeted growth plans. In key real estate markets, the brand works to saturate its presence by developing a strong network of franchisees and inspectors, which bolsters its relationship with local real estate communities as WIN operators become integral members of the closing sales team.
“At the local level, our strategic partners provide a key service during the home selling process, by helping the agents, buyers and sellers see the home objectively for what it is, and as a result, quickly build relationships with local agents,” Steve added.
