Starting a business in the evergreen home inspection industry can be very rewarding. After all, your upfront investment is extremely low ($27,000 to $37,000) because you do not need storefront or inventory, and you can work from home. Moreover, you can grow flexibly as a sole operator or with a team. Lastly, you can build a thriving business while helping others. However, building a successful home inspection business requires key traits and an experienced team to support your journey.

At WIN Home Inspection, one of the largest and fastest growing home inspection franchises, our franchise owners share several traits:

  1. They join WIN from all walks including military, real estate, construction, sales, technical and corporate
  2. WIN franchise owners are passionate about helping others
  3. They are highly motivated and growth oriented
  4. Win franchisees value flexibility and freedom

No wonder, WIN Home Inspection franchise owners can make four times what a home inspector makes on an average. Here are the qualities that help build a thriving home inspection business.

Building a Successful Home Inspection Business 

Building a successful home inspection business requires hard-work and motivation. However, our franchisees have additional traits that set them on a path toward success as business owners.

Self-Motivated and Driven

Motivation is not enough to be successful. You need to be self-motivated. It’s one thing to do the job when you have a boss breathing down your neck. When you invest in your WIN Home Inspection franchise, though, you are in the driver’s seat because of the exceptional support you enjoy while focusing on your growth.

Additionally, our franchise owners seek flexibility and financial freedom. They want to spend more time with their family and friends. They love having personal time. WIN Home Inspection offer cutting-edge marketing programs to help promote your business, and a lifelong training program that is second to none in the industry.

Passion for Helping Others

Home inspection is a very attractive industry. For example, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 10 percent growth in the industry, and outpace many other professions over the next five years. This means you should have no issue expanding your business.

However, growth is not the only motivator for the franchise owners at WIN Home Inspection. They are passionate about helping others by providing outstanding home inspection services. They are skilled at their profession, and bring peace of mind for homebuyers, home sellers and real estate agents. After all, buying a home is one of the most critical and expensive financial decisions for most. At WIN, we offer our franchise owners tools and innovative programs to help them in their mission to serve others while building a highly rewarding business.

New Skills, New Boss and New Hats

Franchise owners at WIN Home Inspection want the freedom that comes with being your own boss. They are also excited by the opportunities to learn new skills and wear multiple hats. We prepare our franchise owners through rigorous and ongoing training. They learn skills for home inspections, running a business and interacting with clients. Our system allows WIN franchise owners to wear multiple hats, whether an inspector, budgeter, financial reviewer, marketer or relationship builder. WIN franchise owners see their partnership with WIN as an enabler to control their future while enjoying top notch support.

Prior Experience Needed to Build a Home Inspection Business?

One of the main hurdles to be successful in any industry is a lack of experience. However, at WIN Home Inspection, we complement your traits with tailored, rigorous and ongoing training. Our training is conducted by industry experts, and includes classroom and field training to ensure you’re properly prepared for your new entrepreneurial journey as a WIN Home Inspection franchisee. Moreover, we offer a one of its kind peer mentorship to further bolster the support.
