Outback GutterVac Gutter Cleaning Franchise Appeals to Millennials Seeking Maintenance-free Living

Posted Feb 13th, 2017

Home buying millennials love the suburbs but don’t love spending time on exterior upkeep

Millennials make up nearly half of home buyers, according to a recent study on consumer housing trends from Zillow. They are more likely than their older homeowner counterparts to take a proactive approach to home maintenance, with four in 10 indicating they plan out their home maintenance projects, budgeting time and money for projects such as gutter cleaning.


“Outback GutterVac provides the level of professionalism and technology that millennial homeowners demand,” says Scott O’Hara, Outback GutterVac Managing Director. “While the ThunderVac™ Technology Process proves the efficacy of what we do, by cleaning not only what is visible to the eye, but also the debris and the bacteria that is unknowingly growing in your gutters — we don’t rely solely on the technology. Our franchisees are professional, polite and true experts at what they do, not only providing the much needed service of cleaning gutters, but also proactively alerting clients to roof damage.”

Outback GutterVac gutter cleaning franchise delivers an easily scalable business with multiple recurring revenue streams, rigorous service and safety training programs that meet OSHA and ANSI standards, and the pride that comes with providing homeowners a vital link between protecting their investment and health. The value of low startup costs ranging from $93,900 to $120,750 is underscored by custom CRM systems and mobile apps, a Business Support Center and a state-of-the-art customer call center.

Here are just a few reasons the services provided by Outback GutterVac will be in high demand by millennial homeowners in 2017 and beyond.

1.) Millennials are known as the “I want it now” generation. Millennial homeowners want to know they can rely on dependable service providers to help them maintain their homes. They can rest assured knowing they can hire us for our professional gutter cleaning services and not try to squeeze gutter cleaning or pressure washing into their busy work and social calendar.

2.) Millennials are more likely to purchase older homes. Millennial homebuyers are attracted to existing homes in the suburbs, which need more maintenance than newly constructed homes, according to the 2016 National Association of Realtors Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends. Consumer demand for our power washing services for such tasks as cleaning grime from sidewalks and walls will also be on the rise as millennials are drawn to older homes.

3.) Millennials will dominate the homebuying scene. For three years running, millennials have been the largest group of homebuyers and that trend is not expected to slow down. Google “millennial homebuyer trends for 2017” and you’ll get headlines such as, “First-Time Millennial Buyers Poised to Revolutionize the Real Estate Market in 2017” from, the leading publication for the real estate industry. A recent survey indicates that more than half of all homes will be bought by first-time home buyers, with the majority of those home buyers being millennials.

“2017 is shaping up to be the year of the millennial homebuyer and Outback GutterVac’s professional services provide them the peace of mind they seek when it comes to upkeep and maintenance decisions to preserve the value of what for many is the biggest financial investment they have made in their lives,” Scott says.
