Lending relationships built by DreamMaker make it easier for remodeling franchise owners to offer consumer financing, boost sales
Remodeling a kitchen or bathroom can be an expensive project — especially if homeowners want a room worthy of a magazine spread or a remodeling TV show. DreamMaker can handle a wide range of price points, but our customers tend to come to us for their dream remodels. When a customer's budget doesn't match their vision, consumer financing can sometimes bridge the gap. That's why DreamMaker's headquarters team works hard to build partnerships with great vendors who can provide financing to help homeowners afford their dream remodel. The financing, in turn, allows DreamMaker remodelers to close sales.
DreamMaker works with several lenders, and our vendors can provide up to $100,000 in financing to qualified homeowners who are ready to remodel their homes.
“Our customers sometimes come to us with bigger dreams for their remodels than their budget allows,” says Doug Dwyer, president of DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen. “We want to satisfy our customer’s visions, and so we offer a range of financing options so that our customers can complete their remodels now and pay it off using a bonus or other earnings at a later time.”
DreamMaker works hard to enhance the lives of customers by providing exceptional remodels. Part of how we do that is by listening to customers and paying attention to the styles they like, and suggesting features that add functionality, such as pull-out shelving or floor plans that maximize space. By listening, we are able to deliver custom designs that are crafted for each customer.
Sometimes we'll even suggest they wait a little while and save some money so they can afford the remodel they truly desire. After all, they will be enjoying their new kitchen for many, many years, and we don't want them to be asking "what if" five years later. We want them to still be saying "wow."
Financing can often help bridge the gap for customers without them having to wait, or worse, settle for a remodel that's not quite what they want.
The financing options DreamMaker's headquarters team has secured on behalf of our remodeling franchise owners are just a fraction of the benefit that we deliver to franchisees by negotiating with vendors. DreamMaker leverages the buying power of our entire network to gain access to the best deals and the best materials from remodeling vendors and other business partners nationwide.
DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen is a remodeling franchise that helps entrepreneurs and remodelers earn strong financial numbers while also focusing on improving their quality of life. Our franchise owners enjoy much stronger margins than most remodelers — and their customers report much, much higher satisfaction. DreamMaker's business practices are guided by biblical principles of service, respect and integrity — and are key to our success.
DreamMaker has helped existing remodelers take their operations to the next level by providing training, systems and support; those same resources have helped entrepreneurs without a remodeling background launch businesses that are among DreamMaker's top performers.
