VANCOUVER – A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI) recently announced an aggressive Western Canada growth strategy, which calls for expanding from 50 to 100 units throughout Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

The company’s Canadian growth expectations will further solidify ABCHI as Canada’s largest and most trusted home inspection business.

“We’ve struck a chord with buyers, sellers and real estate professionals,” said Martin Fiesel, Regional Owner for A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. “Western Canada has grown to realize that the value we bring to the table is unrivaled. The A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections process is second to none.”

In 2013, ABCHI increased its presence in Western Canada by nearly 25 percent. Projections for the year ahead are even more illustrious for the concept, with company plans calling for 15 new units throughout the western provinces. Key areas for growth include Burnaby, Kelowna, rural Saskatchewan, Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg.

Already, ABCHI is Canada’s largest home inspection franchise with more than 120 branches throughout the country. Additionally, the company has added dozens of home inspectors in Chile, the Czech Republic, New Zealand, Slovakia and the United States.

“This is all taking shape because we’ve worked diligently to become the most trusted home inspection business in Canada,” said David Williams, Regional Owner for A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections in British Columbia.

Currently, ABCHI branches are seeing 15 to 40% percent growth in revenue because of the franchise’s proven business model and its increased brand recognition in the real estate industry. With demand growing for reliable and professional home inspectors that publish easy to understand reports, 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 low-cost franchise investment includes training, marketing tools and ongoing support from the home office.

“We are seeking to award franchisees with professional experience who may be tired of working for someone else or who are seeking a new career path,” Fiesel added. “The right franchisees for us are people who want to take control of their career and invest in a proven formula to achieve that. The key to this franchise is in the quality of the work one puts into it, not in the quantity of hours worked.”

ABCHI launched in Canada in the mid-2000s, remarkably becoming the largest home inspection franchise in the country after only two years of franchising.

Every ABCHI inspector is insured, certified and fully meets the licensing standards in their provinces, going beyond what provinces require of independent home inspectors.
