Whether you’re an experienced property negotiator looking to branch out on your own, or an investor-owner willing to learn the necessary skills, an estate agency franchise can enable you to run your own profitable local property business with an established nationwide reputation from your first day’s trading.
The benefits of operating an estate agency franchise are far-reaching, but one of the most immediate advantages is the negotiating power it gives franchisees. Whether you’re trying to purchase agency software, vehicle insurance or local newspaper advertising rates, the buying power of a franchised group of estate agents can help you secure the best possible rate with suppliers.
The combined reputation of a nationwide network of estate agents can also help you increase your earnings. Sellers need tangible proof that they’re selling with the biggest, most reputable agents as they are looking for the best possible price in the fastest possible time. The reputation of an established national network can help achieve this.
Another major benefit is that – as with many franchises for sale – an estate agency franchisee can pick up the phone to like-minded fellow franchisees, all with the same commercial objectives, in a non-competitive environment. The benefit of discussing day-to-day business issues with a network of people facing the same challenges every day can really help a franchised estate agency to move their business forward at a faster rate than their local competitors.
