16 Year Reputation

This well-established, often referred home inspection business has been serving Santa Clara County, Alameda County, and surrounding areas for 16 years. They are the “Go To” inspectors for single family homes, town houses, condos, mobile homes, and apartment buildings.

Demand continues to be strong for inspections, with almost every property being sold, there is a request from the seller, buyer, lender, or other interested party. Commercial and business inspections are a source of new clients that remain to be pursued and would increase sales. Two apartment building inspections have been completed already in 2022 towards capturing that segment of the business.

2021 sales included the following inspections, 106 single family dwellings, 65 condos, 17 town houses, and 323 mobile homes, for a total of 511 total inspections. Inspection services are required during the sale of a home, for approving work of contractors, providing evidence for insurance claims, HOA, community and local department of housing compliance; several revenue streams which support the notion that the growth potential for this business is very realistic and achievable.

For this business, a three-year average cash flow is applied making the business price more favorable to the buyer. The multiplier applied in this case is 2.74x, below the market in favor of the buyer.
