CHANDLER, Ariz., Aug. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- nuHome, a free resource for homeowners seeking local professionals for home products and services, has become one of the fastest growing companies in its industry. The Arizona-based company has grown from a single office to serving over 30 major markets nationwide.
nuHome's mission is focused on helping homeowners create a better home, get projects done and save time and money on related products and services. The company's robust list of recommended vendors (Preferred Partners™) is vetted for quality and integrity. In addition to its local partnerships, nuHome is also working with trusted national brands to complement its current offerings.
National providers will bring more variety, familiarity and retail opportunities to the new homeowner Welcome Gift Box; one of the company's most recognized products. Personalized for the new homeowner, Welcome Gift Boxes contain valuable discount offers in the form of nuCards®, a business specific offer similar to a gift card. nuCards can be redeemed with the specific business and cover home improvement services, retail, family fun and dining.
nuHome also offers an expansive online resource to homeowners that includes the ability to select and review vendors, as well as schedule appointments in a variety of home service categories or with the individual providers themselves.
Founded in 2014, nuHome was the brainchild of CEO Matt Willes. Willes understood that new homeowners spend approximately eight times as much on home related projects compared to existing homeowners, especially within the first few stressful and costly months. Unlike its competitors, nuHome begins its relationship with homeowners at the time of home purchase with the free welcome gift delivered within days of closing.
"Our mission is to initially welcome the new homeowner with a great collection of local discounts and offers that most homeowners routinely need," says Travis Williams, Chief Marketing Officer with nuHome. "We want to begin a long-term relationship by extending a helpful hand during the move-in process. Our hope is that they will quickly embrace us as a critical resource throughout their homeownership and project needs."
When the homeowner enrolls and activates their nuCards, either online or with one phone call, they join a fast growing community. Membership is free for homeowners and does not require any fees for services offered. Preferred Partners range from plumbers and electricians to security system and cable companies. Retailers can include homewares, decorative accessory and hardware stores. Home improvement and related businesses interested in signing up can create a free listing on the company website and learn about benefits of joining the fast growing Preferred Partner network.
Each week, nuHome delivers over 25,000 welcome gift boxes. More than 12,000 new homeowners activate each month and it retains approximately 97% of those customers. The over 2,900 Preferred Partners of nuHome receive more than 30,000 pro requests each month. The company also has over 200 employees throughout the United States who manage the company, handle activation of new subscribers and schedule over 260 Preferred Partner appointments each day.
The ease of this home maintenance model is particularly appealing to the millennial-age new homeowners who want a simpler, digital-focused life. In addition to the Welcome Gift Boxes, nuHome utilizes social media to spread the word about its services. The company has experienced 2870% growth in social media fans on its sites since July 2015 and currently has more than 20,000 fans on Facebook.
