Home services franchises perform an array of home improvement and maintenance services on residential homes, helping busy home owners keep their houses, lawns, windows and more looking and functioning beautifully.
What kinds of services do people need?
Popular home service franchise areas include flooring, concrete, moving and storage, painting, plumbing, pest control, and lawn care. There are also opportunities specializing in decks, closets, landscaping, garages, windows and more.
Anything you can think of that the average homeowner doesn’t have the time or skill to accomplish can be a successful home services business.
Pay attention to the seasons
Worth considering is that some of these businesses are seasonal depending on location; lawn care for example is more in demand in most of the country in the spring and summer months.
Do I need to be handy?
Not particularly. You will be the one hiring employees and managing the business, but not the one cleaning carpets or installing windows. Of course, if your dream is to become a home decorator, you could get hands-on experience with the right franchise!
Many home services franchise are taking advantage of current trends with processes that are environmentally friendly.
With low interest rates and the recession tailing off, the home services industry is poised for a comeback, making this a great time to invest in a home services franchise.
