  • star rating icon


    We’re the premier home inspection franchise company in North America and the highest-rated in our industry in customer and franchise owner satisfaction.

Each HouseMaster franchise owner is a “people person.”

Our franchise owners understand that the important work of home inspection can’t be outsourced or automated. This is a process that’s about so much more than checking items off a list. A home is often the largest investment someone ever makes, and what we do is all about heart. Although no prior industry experience is necessary to purchase a HouseMaster franchise, some of our franchise owners had previous experience in real estate, construction, or contracting. Their desire to succeed, confidence to communicate findings with customers, and ability to manage a team, are a recipe for success. While some HouseMaster franchise owners start out as lead inspectors, some scale their businesses and focus more on operations while watching their business grow.

In addition to the rewards of franchise ownership, HouseMaster franchise owners love the “why” of this industry. They enjoy engaging with people who are on the cusp of home ownership. Our owners are honored to play a role in their customer’s journey by offering their expertise, attention to detail, genuine compassion, and consummate professionalism. We’re not here to make value judgments about a home. We’re here to educate our customers about the home’s condition so they can consider all factors before making that home investment.
