What Pillar To Post Offers You
At Pillar To Post, we pride ourselves on being a reliable partner and resource for our franchisees. While you might be going into business for yourself, you’re not by any means going into business by yourself. Here’s what we offer our valued home inspection franchisees.
A Solid Return on Investment
Everyone wants to feel like their investment comes with minimal risk and a high return. We want you to be able to confidently take the first step toward franchise ownership without feeling like you’ve broken the bank. That’s why we keep our franchise fee low, at just $18,900, and offer affordable financing to cover $9,000 of the total. For veterans or existing home inspectors, even further financing is available. These low startup costs make us the most affordable home inspection franchise in North America
While every franchise is different, and your growth is dependent upon your own motivation, acumen, and desire to learn, the average gross revenue of a Pillar To Post franchisee has increased 35% since 2012, and is steadily growing. Our average gross revenue for franchisees is high as well. In addition to the stellar performance of our franchisees, we attribute these positive trends to our great support team here at Pillar to Post and to our network of resources we make available to you.
Strong Support System
If you’ve never worked in the home inspection industry before, don’t worry. We have a team of 30+ people dedicated to assisting you grow your inspection franchise and guide you toward success. Each of our franchisees is paired with a personal business coach, with years of experience in franchising. They are well-equipped to answer questions, provide guidance, and give you the tools and resources to make your investment worthwhile. We do, however, expect you to have a desire to learn. We teach you how to inspect homes and how to run a home inspection franchise.
A Proven Business Model
One of the most challenging and daunting aspects of opening a new business is that you’re starting from scratch. Luckily, with Pillar To Post, you’re being handed a turnkey business. Our business model is the product of 23 years of experience and success, and we’re proud to pass it along to you and watch you make it your own. We want you to inject your own personality in your franchise, but we do ask that you respect our years of experience and follow our guidance. During our many years in the industry, we have developed the ideal business, marketing, and inspection processes to help you grow your franchise. You do not need to reinvent the wheel.
As one of our valued franchisees, you’ll benefit from a sophisticated training and support system, comprehensive operations manuals, and in-house technical and computer support. We have the infrastructure and experience to guide you in the right direction.
Existing Network of Real Estate Partners
Entering a new industry with no contacts can put you at a disadvantage. The more players you know, the easier it is to establish yourself—this is especially true of a new business owner. That’s why Pillar To Post partners franchisees with industry experts, including already-successful franchisees and real estate agents. As a Pillar To Post franchisee, you will spend a lot of time networking with realtors and educating clients as they prepare to turn a house into a home. A strong network is crucial not only for generating client leads and making important industry contacts, but also creating brand awareness.
To aid with location selection, we partner franchisees with one of the world’s top real estate firms, who help identify the perfect site for your inspection franchise and participate in lease negotiation. Their assistance will prove invaluable to franchisees choosing a home for their business.
A Thriving Industry
As a prospective franchisee in the home inspection industry, you can be confident that unlike many industries, there is no single company dominating our space. There’s plenty of room for your franchise to take shape, grow, and compete. We are currently a 3 billion dollar industry with 4.6% annual growth. Timing is essential in franchising, and it’s a great year for the housing market. Nearly 6 million Americans purchased homes in 2016, and that number is only expected to rise.
