This home-inspection business will not only place you at the beginning of the phonebook listing, but offer an independent occupation.
A-Pro Services offers home inspection services. A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from top to bottom. It's also an essential part of buying a home--skip the home inspection and you could be in for some unpleasant surprises after it's too late.

You can order an A-Pro inspection online. The standard home inspector's report checks the condition of the home's heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement, and visible structure. No firm estimates of repairs, definitive adherence or failure to adhere to code is given. Rather, the home inspection gives the potential buyer a better sense of the house they're considering from a structural standpoint.
A-Pro was founded in 1994 and now has 60 business owners. When you begin an A-Pro franchise, the company staff of technicians, copywriters, engineers, technical support personnel, computer programmers, and information managers are at your disposal. Professional marketing materials including brochures, postcards, and the like are also provided. Thus, you can concentrate on inspections, not operational snafus.
Rather than a royalty fee, A-Pro takes a flat $125 per week. Franchises are available in all states, with initial investments ranging from $23,900 - $35,000. Both franchisees of technical and non-technical backgrounds.
