North American’s Fastest Growing Home Inspection Company Sets Sights On Providence for Continued Expansion

PROVIDENCE, RI – A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI) USA is knocking on the door, ready to bring Providence the most professional home inspection services in America.

The Pompano Beach, Fla.-based company — known throughout North America for providing comprehensive and reliable home inspections — announced today its strategic franchise growth plans specifically targeting Providence and Rhode Island. The strategic expansion will provide the local real estate market a much-needed upgrade in home inspection services complete with incomparable reporting documentation.

“Through market analysis and ongoing discussions with key players in the local real estate market, we’ve identified an incredible need for professionally certified home inspections in Rhode Island,” said Bill Redfern, founder, president and CEO of ABCHI USA. “No home inspection company in North America has spent as much time as ours perfecting how local homebuyers and sellers want a home inspection delivered. We have streamlined the home inspection process to meet the needs of all parties involved, ensuring customers are getting the information they need to make clear decisions in critical moments.”

With the U.S. housing bubble dramatically impacting home sales in America during the past half-decade, the company had been steering clear of the U.S. market — until late 2012.

Showing uncanny confidence in the U.S. housing recovery, Redfern moved the company headquarters from Nova Scotia, Canada to Pompano Beach, Fla., to completely immerse itself in the United States.

Beyond expansion plans into Providence, the company’s U.S. growth expectations will make it the world’s largest home inspection business. Already, ABCHI is Canada’s largest home inspection franchise with more than 120 branches throughout the country.

Additionally, the company has grown into Chile, the Czech Republic, New Zealand and Slovakia.

Redfern is a seasoned industry executive with more than two decades experience developing, owning and managing real estate. Notably, ABCHI is the only major home inspection company with a foundation deeply rooted in the real estate industry.

Currently, ABCHI franchise units are seeing 15 percent growth in revenue because of the rebounding economy, an improving housing market and ABCHI’s proven business model. With demand growing for reliable and professional home inspections that publish easy to understand results, the company is filling a void in what is often seen as an ad hoc home inspection industry. Using proprietary software, ABCHI creates comprehensive reports for consumers that help them make more informed decisions about homes they are considering purchasing. A growing number of real estate agents are also partnering with the home inspection service, taking a proactive approach to attract homebuyers to properties.

Ideal for corporate escapees in search of greater work-life balance, an opportunity to work from home and a fast growing sector with unlimited potential, ABCHI offers franchise investors a turnkey operation. According to company estimates, franchisees can earn a healthy living working less than eight hours a day following the ABCHI business model. With few additional startup costs, the total franchise fee is $29,900, but has been reduced to $19,990 for a limited time. The low-cost franchise investment includes training, marketing tools and ongoing support from the home office.

Redfern started his home inspection business in Canada in the mid-2000s, remarkably turning it into the largest home inspection franchise in that country after only two years of franchising. His track record of success stems from his remarkable attention to detail. Every ABCHI inspector is insured and certified above licensing standards, going beyond what states require of independent home inspectors.
