HouseCall, an app connecting homeowners with vetted service professionals, announced that it has raised an additional $1.5 million in strategic funding.

The lead investor in the round was Canter Capital, with participation from KGC Capital.

HouseCall previously raised $1.5 million from e.ventures, a global venture firm that was the first institutional investor in Angie’s List. With a total of $3 million of investment since the company’s inception late 2013, HouseCall is now one of San Diego’s fastest funded startups.

Canter Capital is a subsidiary of the real estate investment firm, Canter Companies, based in San Diego.

“We began to see trends in our user data that highlighted home buyers and sellers as some of the most frequent repeat users of our app, and working with Canter has helped us expand the product to fit this need,” said Ian Heidt, CEO of HouseCall.

The HouseCall app gives homeowners a seamless way to book and pay for home services from locally recommended service professionals. The HouseCall Pro app gives service professionals a modern way to manage their schedule, workflow, customer database, payments and invoices all from their smartphone.

Since launching, HouseCall has thousands of users in San Diego booking services across all home service categories. Approximately 35 percent of users that have used the service have already booked two times or more, with recurring usage common across home service categories. Many independent service professionals using HouseCall Pro are now earning over 50 percent of their income through the app.

With the new funding, HouseCall will continue to expand its local services platform by developing an Android version for both homeowners and service professionals for release this summer, and launch into new geographies.
