A Systems Approach to Remodeling Business Success – Understanding the Kitchen Solver’s Franchise Advantage
If you’ve been thinking about getting involved with a remodeling business, now’s the time!
Coming out of a recent recession with the realty market looking as unpredictable as ever, more and more Americans have decided to settle into their homes to ride out the storm. And while that may be bad news for the realty world, it’s a big break for remodeling business owners across the country. Any time homeowners decide to stay where they are, their interest in home improvement projects spikes up. It’s not hard to see why; hiring a remodeling business to give your kitchen or bathroom a facelift is one of the best ways to spruce up your living space, even as it builds the value of your home. When it does come time to sell, hiring a remodeling business really pays off, contributing an average of 5-10% more to the final sale price according to realty market experts (Goetzmann& Spiegel, 1995; Potepan, 1989).
So you know it’s a good time to get started with a remodeling business, but how do you go about it?
Self-Starting Your Remodeling Business
Starting a remodeling business from scratch is no easy task. Before you open your doors for business, you’ll need to find and lease a location, secure your tools and materials from reputable vendors, acquire signage, and work your way through a startling amount of paperwork. This is all assuming that you’re operating a sole proprietorship, and that you require no training in construction, marketing, bookkeeping, customer service, sales, or design. If that’s not the case, you’ll need to worry about staffing and skills development, too. This is all paid for out of your pocket long before the business generates a single cent in profitable returns.
But that’s not all; self-starter remodeling businesses also need to build a local reputation. Gaining the trust of the consumer and community is especially important in the remodeling industry, as a day’s work involves entering into somebody’s home. Remodeling boom or not, until you’ve built a solid reputation in your area, you can expect your sales to drag a bit.
For many people, self-starting a remodeling business is not the best path to success. Many business close their doors before a single customer has walked through them.
Fortunately, there’s a better option.
