Franchise Opportunities


This franchise opportunity definitely warrants further inspection. With Americans constantly on the move, running a home inspection service can take you where you want to go.

Franchise Profile — HouseMaster

Ken Austin had a burning desire to own his own business. In the late 1960's he began researching the idea of home inspections after seeing an ad for such a service in the Wall Street Journal.

Ken saw the home inspection as a valuable service for home buyers like himself that often felt they were making real estate decisions based on very limited information.

After developing a high volume home inspection business, Ken decided to take his program to the national level. In 1979 he created HouseMaster�, The Home Inspection Professionals�, which remains the oldest home inspection franchise system. With an annual potential of five million re-sales and over one million new homes, the market for professional home inspections is tremendous!

This excellent market potential, combined with our ability to instill in you and your staff our considerable experience through quality training, offer you an outstanding professional business opportunity.
