WIN Home Inspection (WIN), founded in 1993 in Seattle, Washington, has developed a U.S. network of home inspection professionals, making it one of the fastest growing home inspection companies today.
WIN began with home inspection business franchises in the Pacific Northwest and within a year, not only dominated this regional market but has since expanded across the U.S., with more than 170 locations in 27 states.
Why Choose WIN HOME INSPECTION?
Part of the equation for success of WIN is the growing demand for home inspection services. Driving this increase is heightened consumer awareness of the necessity for home inspections in the buying process, an advocacy of home inspections by Realtors® and lenders, and the introduction of mandatory property disclosure laws requiring the seller to fully disclose any problems with the property.
WIN home inspectors are chosen time and time again because of their professionalism. In fact, when surveyed, Realtors® chose this trait as the #1 aspect considered when referring a home inspector. Also setting WIN apart is its unique high-visibility "mobile business" concept which includes everything from its inspector's brightly identified service vehicles and clothing to their exclusive, computerized narrative inspection reporting system.
