Wilmington, NC (PressExposure) July 22, 2009 -- Rich Morgan has found his career rewarding since purchasing his franchise with HomeVestors of America, the company who is famous for its âWe Buy Ugly Housesâ billboards. Since graduating from HomeVestors intensive two-week training program Rich has been searching for ugly houses he calls diamonds in the rough, to rehab and sell to improve the look of neighborhoods saturated with vacant houses in disrepair.
Formerly a business manager in the plastic packaging industry, Rich left the corporate world to pursue his lifelong goal of becoming a successful business owner. Joining him as partners in his franchise are his wife, Alisa and close friend, Chip Hascher.
After developing award-winning franchised real estate offices in Dallas and Houston, Texas in the late 1970s and 1980s, the late Ken DâAngelo began to focus on recycling single-family homes. The decision led to the basis which became HomeVestors of America, Inc, the âWe Buy Ugly Housesâ people.
The âWe Buy Ugly Housesâ billboard was created in the early 1990s to motivate people who wanted to sell their house quickly and at a discount. Mr. DâAngelo would purchase the home even if it were in dire need of repairs, and then resell the property to real estate investors or renovate the home to enhance the neighborhood and sell to first-time home buyers.
By the mid 1990s DâAngelo was buying and selling more than 100 properties annually. As the company grew DâAngelo decided to teach others how to buy, repair and sell homes. Ken DâAngelo became the founder of âWe Buy Ugly Housesâ franchise business system of HomeVestors of America, Inc., the first franchise company of its kind.
Today, HomeVestors has over 250 franchised offices in the US. HomeVestors was named to Entrepreneur Magazineâs Franchise 500 list for six consecutive years and Entrepreneurs âFastest-Growing Franchisesâ for four consecutive years. Visit http://wilmingtonnc.homevestors.com/ to learn more.
