June 17, 2014 // Franchising.com // POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – The nation's leading home inspection franchise, A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI) U.S.A, announced today that it is adding more fuel to its aggressive U.S. expansion program. Already exceeding the growth rate of its direct competitors in the United States, as well as the vast majority of franchise concepts regardless of industry, ABCHI is easing the process for new and prospective franchisees seeking to roll retirement funds into purchasing the ABCHI franchise opportunity.
Guidant Financial, the premier provider of rollovers for business start-ups (ROBS), is now aligned with ABCHI to add more momentum for franchise growth. Guidant's services give ABCHI candidates awarded the franchise opportunity the freedom to purchase their business using their retirement funds without taking a taxable distribution or getting a loan.
Ideal for corporate escapees in search of greater work-life balance, 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. The low-cost franchise investment includes training, marketing tools and ongoing support from the home office.
"There is an incredible amount of interest in joining the ABCHI family of franchisees and we're even better prepared to award qualified individuals who bring a strong work ethic the opportunity. The relationship we've formed with Guidant now makes this easier," said Bill Redfern, founder, president and CEO of ABCHI. "We're a low cost franchise investment. Guidant is perfect for our candidates who have saved their retirement funds to invest in an ABCHI franchise."
Currently, ABCHI franchise units are seeing nearly 20 percent growth in revenue, a reflection of both improving housing markets 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.
"Everything is pointing in the right direction for ABCHI," said David Nilssen, co-founder and CEO of Guidant Financial. "We team up with franchises such as ABCHI because we know they can offer so many positive life-changing results for individuals becoming franchisees. We're proud to work with ABCHI."
The company's U.S. growth expectations will make it the world's largest home inspection business. 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.
Redfern is a seasoned industry executive with more than two decades experience developing, owning and managing real estate. Notably, ABCHI is the only major home inspection company with a foundation deeply rooted in the real estate industry.
A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI) is a franchise business meeting the huge demand for home inspections. The company is rapidly expanding throughout the United States, Canada and worldwide, on a path to become the world's largest home inspection company. By focusing on developing and maintaining local, trust-based relationships with its customers, ABCHI is creating a home inspection business unlike any other.
