NOW for those of you who aren’t the most handy or lack the skills you think you need to do this, I have got some Great news for you…. You Don’t! This business is currently run semi-passively by an owner whom had zero construction experience prior to buying this and currently works  another full time job as an engineer. The beautiful thing about this home repair business is that anyone can own it and make money without ever having to get their hands dirty. If you have good business acumen, are ambitious, and good at marketing & managing people then this business is for you.

The seller’s approximate start up costs for this home repair franchise were $210,000.  And that was without a single customer in his database to start!!. Now there are over 4,000 and counting. We are selling this business for much less than he paid. Again he had zero customers, you will 4000+ potential customers. It is terrible situation for him to have to sell it now, right as it is starting to get really good. But “life has showed up” and is basically forcing him to dump it.  However, it is a great situation for You the buyer. In fact, sudden turmoil, illness, or tragedy is what savvy buyers look for when prospecting for a business and unfortunately this is what’s happening here with our client. If you are looking to find a DEAL for a business with growth potential, proven profitability, great staff, and runs like a well oiled machine then you really should jump on this listing NOW!!
