DENVER, November 20, 2019 — HomeAdvisor, an operating business of ANGI Homeservices (NASDAQ: ANGI) that is transforming the way people care for their homes, today announced a new, on-demand way to get home projects done—from painting a house to unclogging a drain—for homeowners across the US. Through HomeAdvisor, homeowners can now view clear, upfront pricing on more than 100 popular home services, then seamlessly schedule and pay for them in less than a minute. Jobs are then delivered by HomeAdvisor’s network of screened local home service professionals and backed by a happiness guarantee.
“This marks a major milestone for both HomeAdvisor and the home services industry as we’re making it possible to buy and schedule complex home projects online: instantly, seamlessly and with peace of mind,” said Brandon Ridenour, CEO of ANGI Homeservices. “For the first time, U.S. homeowners have the option to instantly purchase a wide breadth of home services online, with transparent pricing and guaranteed outcomes, at a scale never seen before.”
Available across the U.S. in over 100 tasks and expanding to over 150 tasks by 2020, HomeAdvisor’s new offering meets the needs of millennial home buyers, currently the largest segment of homeowners in the US, who expect to engage and transact online and on-demand. HomeAdvisor’s 2019 State of Home Spending found that millennials have completed the most home improvement projects in the last year as compared to any other generation and are more motivated by ROI than any other generation.
“Millennials now represent the largest share of the home buying market and have a strong desire to remove friction – like searching for the right pro or haggling over price – from the process of getting a project off the ground,” continued Mr. Ridenour. “HomeAdvisor can now meet the needs of a powerful home buying segment while giving our pros access to more work and allowing them to spend more time and energy on completing jobs. We see this as the future and where home services are headed.”
With HomeAdvisor, homeowners can now:
- See up-front transparent pricing for a job – no hidden costs or fees;
- Instantly schedule services for the time of their choosing;
- Seamlessly pay for services through HomeAdvisor;
- Have peace of mind that projects are backed by a guarantee from HomeAdvisor.
