If you are looking to start a business that promises great returns, a dynamic working environment and exceptional opportunity, the answer could be property and estate agency franchising.
In the past, the estate agency sector was almost composed entirely of independent and local outlets, but with property becoming big business, franchisees are now taking advantage of the opportunities available in this sector. From buying and selling to rentals, and from new builds to the luxury market, this sector is varied and prosperous.
In the run up to changes in Stamp Duty, the market was flooded with buy-to–let transactions, a rise of 77 per cent on the previous year. These landlords now need estate agents to manage their properties, which makes it the perfect time to get into estate agency and property franchising.
Buying or selling a property can be one of the biggest transactions people make in their lives. As a result, they want a brand they are familiar with and a name they can trust. That is why franchising provides an easy route into the market for savvy entrepreneurs looking to become involved in property and estate agency.
Even without specific estate agency experience, you can quickly bring a big name in property to your local area. Some of the largest property agents are currently recruiting for property and estate agency franchisees, including Town and Country Property Auctions, Century 21 and Agency Express. The benefits of bringing a big brand to a small town are plentiful. There is far less competition, rental rates are cheaper and consumers will flock to try out a trusted name right on their doorstep.
