Originally founded as HomeVestors of America in 1989, the We Buy Ugly Houses franchise model became available in 1996. Since then, HomeVestors and We Buy Ugly Houses franchisees have purchased 75,000+ homes nationwide.
We Buy Ugly Houses franchisees are home buyers who purchase "ugly" homes. This includes homes that are difficult to sell for a number of reasons, and also homes that have their owners in ugly, captive situations. We pay cash to purchase these homes from their owners, rehab them, and then sell these homes to investors or buyers, or rent them to tenants.
In doing so, we're home buyers who help the owners get out of their "ugly" housing situation so they can finally move onto a new life, and we provide outstanding opportunities for renters and first time home buyers while dramatically improving neighborhoods throughout the process.
Why Our Franchise?
HomeVestors® offers low-cost franchising opportunities to investors seeking to build wealth. Its unique business model includes a proprietary software system that franchisees use to evaluate single-family homes for purchase and repair; mass advertising based on high-impact billboard campaigns that quickly achieve nearly universal market awareness; and a direct-selling program that helps franchisees identify buyers or investors who already have a stake in the neighborhood.
With consistent support from the company, HomeVestors franchisees generate positive cash flow and equity. They build real estate portfolios and wealth by acquiring investment-grade, single-family properties at discount prices and rehabbing them, then selling them or operating them as rental properties.
