HomeVestors Welcomes 800th Franchise in First Quarter 2017

75 Additional Franchises Join Growing “We Buy Ugly Houses®” Brand

May 23, 2017 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - HomeVestors of America welcomed 75 new franchises during the first quarter 2017, including the brand’s 800th franchise in Allentown, Pa., a new market for the “We Buy Ugly Houses” company. Other new territories include Little Rock, Arkansas; Twin Falls, Idaho; Duluth-Superior, Wi.; Beaumont, Tex.; Charlottesville, Va.; Omaha, Neb.; and St. Cloud-Alexandria, Minn.

“Homeowners throughout America enjoy the efforts of franchises like these who are working to once again turn ugly houses into an asset to their communities,” said David Hicks, HomeVestors co-president. “The franchises that come to HomeVestors have an entrepreneurial drive and passion that has helped build our company over the last 20 years. We are happy to welcome these additional franchises, and to recognize Sjaun Lobdell, our 800th franchisee.”

Sjaun hails from Allentown, where he previously worked in information technology. He and his wife Jamie, were seeking a way for Sjaun to invest himself wholeheartedly into a business opportunity that would allow more meaningful time with their family of four. Sjaun recently was recognized while attending UG University in Dallas.

“I’ve always been interested in real estate, but felt overwhelmed at the prospect,” said Lobdell, the 800th HomeVestors® franchisee. “After the great experience we had re-doing our own place, and facing a crossroads in our life, we saw HomeVestors as a way to seize the day to enjoy freedom through our business. We’re looking forward to doing the hard work required with the tremendous backing of the ‘We Buy Ugly Houses’ brand.”
