HomeVestors Reaches Its Platinum Anniversary

Company Celebrates 20 Years of Franchised Success and Victory in Trademark Infringement Cases

More than 65,000 houses bought by 750 franchisees in 43 states

DALLAS - October 10, 2016 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - HomeVestors of America, also known as the We Buy Ugly Houses® company, today announced it is celebrating its platinum anniversary of the HomeVestors® franchise network’s success. Founded by Ken D’Angelo, HomeVestors® began franchising in 1996. Since that time, 750 independently owned and operated franchisees in 43 states have purchased more than 65,000 homes nationwide. It is the largest professional home buying franchise network in the U.S.

“When we say we have bought more than 65,000 houses, that’s our franchisees removing the burden of fixing, owning and selling a home that 65,000 customers would normally have to deal with. We’ve helped neighborhoods by taking over distressed properties, aided people who inherited homes that are costly to fix and removed the very stressful challenge of selling a home. We are the original professional home buying franchise – and show no signs of slowing down,” says David Hicks, HomeVestors co-president.

Contributing to HomeVestors’ overall success, the company has established strong, national brand identity and has aggressively defended its registered trademarks to uphold the national brand and well-established company identity. Their legal team’s assertive defense of HomeVestors’ trademarks has been fiercely defended throughout this last year. Since December 2015, the company has won 84 cases against trademark infringers by outside counsel, pursued 22 lawsuits/UDRP proceedings against infringers and more than 700 infringing social media and ad sites have been successfully taken down or scrubbed of the HomeVestors trademarks.

“We are incredibly proud of the work our legal team has done. They stand up for what the HomeVestors company believes in – honesty. That is shown through our work to protect our well-earned, national brand and by providing customers an honest service. We’ve proved ourselves to be trustworthy; our business can present interesting challenges, and I think the proof of dependability and customer service is in the numbers,” said Ken Channell, HomeVestors co-president. “In order to serve our customers the best way possible, all of our independently owned and operated franchisees receive extensive training and support from our corporate office. There is no one else out there that has done what we have.”

HomeVestors can buy houses in any condition for cash. Our franchisees cover most normal closing costs and can close in as little as 30 days. To celebrate the 20-year anniversary, the company will be holding a contest among the franchisees to find The 2016 Ugliest House in America. The winning franchisee and home will be announced in December, at HomeVestors 2016 annual convention in Orlando.
