HomeVestors Mobile App Gives Franchisees Real Time Ability to Evaluate Properties, Estimate Repair Costs

New ValueChek App Increases Home Buying Productivity

ALLAS, Nov. 14, 2012 // PRNewswire // - HomeVestors, also known as the We Buy Ugly Houses® company, is equipping its 260 franchise owners in 36 states with a mobile app that helps them to accurately evaluate a property, develop a list of repairs that need to be made and accurately estimate the cost of repairs so that home purchase decisions can be made on the spot.

"Our franchisees spend 70 percent of their time on the go, evaluating houses all over their respective locations," says Ken Channell, co-president of HomeVestors. "In the fiercely competitive market of single family investment real estate, our franchisees need to be able to complete their due diligence research, make a home purchase decision and make an offer in minutes not hours or days."

The mobile app, called ValueChek, incorporates a national home improvement supplier to provide real time home repair costs to our HomeVestors® independently owned and operated franchisees and was developed by Nitro Mobile Solutions a leading provider of enterprise mobile application solutions.

"Nitro demonstrated to us that they knew more than just mobile technology. They could connect our business and its historical IT applications and Home Depot's website to a mobile app," said HomeVestor co-president Dave Hicks. "We expect that ValueChek will translate into increased productivity and efficiency, and help to ensure that we take advantage of opportunities we may be missing."
