Now is the Time to Take Advantage of Home Franchise Opportunities
Growing demographic of Baby Boomers is ripe for Epcon Franchising home franchise opportunities
The time to take advantage of Epcon’s home franchise opportunities is now. Epcon Franchising is looking for Franchise Builders to augment our success as we continue to provide housing popular with a huge segment of the home-buying population — Baby Boomers.
Epcon Communities Franchising Inc. is America’s 38th-largest homebuilder (“2014 Builder 100,” Builder Magazine, May 2015), and one of the few home franchise companies that exist. Epcon and its Franchise Builders develop communities of ranch-style, low-maintenance homes popular with 55+ buyers — a demographic projected to drive new home sales in the United States for many years to come.
‘Silver tsunami’ boosts the number of Epcon’s home franchise opportunities
There are millions of Baby Boomers. Many plan to buy new homes for retirement that are smaller but offer amenities that they will finally have time to enjoy. The Epcon home building franchise system is perfectly positioned to capture these buyers. Since our founding in 1986, we have considered the needs of that neglected customer segment — active adult home buyers.
That segment represents a special opportunity. There are millions of active adult home buyers, they are wealthier than other generations, and they have better credit and more equity in their existing homes. That puts them in the best position to buy, which is why Metrostudy (a division of Hanley Wood) projects that Baby Boomers will purchase 52 percent of the new homes sold between now and 2019.
Major home builders are beginning to develop products that will appeal to buyers with empty nests and eager for an active lifestyle. But Epcon’s home building franchise system communities have been popular with 55+ homebuyers for nearly three decades — a major advantage for our Franchise Builders.
“There is massive demand for active adult housing, and not nearly enough builders are focusing on the needs and desires of 50+ buyers,” says CEO and Director Ed Bacome. “This mismatch between supply and demand creates a huge opportunity for Epcon’s Franchise Builders.”
Why our home franchise system is growing
The construction downturn during the Great Recession eliminated a lot of competition in the home building marketplace. At the same time, many potential buyers who would have liked to move into a new home were stymied by a lack of financing, falling equity in their existing homes, and falling stock prices. Now that home prices are rising, financing is again available, and the stock market has recovered much of its losses — those customers are ready to buy.
