Homeowner Expectations. Exceeded.

We've helped millions of homeowners find the right pros for their projects. They've told us that their hiring decisions are based on more than whether or not the pro has the right skills for the job.

Here's what homeowners are looking for:
Be Prompt
Time is of the essence, especially when a homeowner needs help. Calling new prospects immediately is one of the most effective ways to win the job.
Be Professional
One of the most important things homeowners look for when hiring a pro is professionalism. Whether it's showing up on time or making good on your word, they want a pro they can trust.
Be Proactive
Many homeowners are busy and may require more than one follow-up attempt. Proactively following up to discuss their project and explain the value you can deliver can mean the difference between winning and losing a job.
Complete Your Profile
As a homeowner's first introduction to your business, your business profile is your chance to make a great first impression - telling them who you are, what you do, and how you're different. Take advantage of our free tools to make your profile stand out.

Building Your Business Profile

Your HomeAdvisor business profile page lets homeowners know that you are the right pro for their project. Make a great first impression with prospects by:

  • Completing all aspects of your profile to give homeowners the details they need to hire you.
  • Adding recent pictures that showcase the quality of your work.
  • Offering unique deals to help you stand out from the crowd.

  • Submitting a starter review from a previous project.
  • Requesting ratings & reviews from HomeAdvisor homeowners after each and every project.

A Great Asset to My Business

"In 9 out of 10 cases, I find that homeowners coming through HomeAdvisor are smarter and more informed than what I got through newspapers. There are some "shoppers" that come through, but most customers are looking for a good quality contractor. . . . Having a steady stream of prospects and the flexibility to manage my flow of work using their tools has made HomeAdvisor a great asset to my business."

More importantly, I've found the people at HomeAdvisor to be very knowledgeable about selling, lead generation, and my industry in general. They have great ideas and really care about me as a customer."
