Real property management and real estate franchises are still tremendously popular in the UK, due to the strength and underlying positive sentiment of investors in this sector.
In the US and Canada the property management is popular too, although in the US housing has not been as resilient to recent market downturns. Canada is now witnessing huge increases in property values due to Chinese buyers in the top rated cities and areas.
Day to day
Property management niches focus on the management of properties for landlords, and cover leasing, legal requirements and collecting rent whilst also dealing with the day to day tenant issues and offer a great service to protect landlords from their tenants.
So if you look to find one, remember you will be the shock absorber between the tenant and landlord, and are expected to professionally manage that relationship.
Franchise opportunities service the tenants and landlords whilst also require the owner and operator to identify and sign up new as well as existing landlords. The business is about expanding and finding new property management clients and tenants that are suitable for the properties being managed.
When advertised they will often look for and allow a new business owner the ability to walk into a fully systemised business, where the requirement for an office is needed as a fully inclusive operations manual and the contracts and lease documentation is provided as part of the package.
Often some signage is also provided and letter heads, branding and even a support system to help the new business owner to get started. When looking at the real property management franchise cost and evaluating if the business is good value a new franchisee should look at how much support and additional training is provided by the company who are selling and promoting the opportunities.
The thing that makes the UK franchise business look good is the demand as the lack of housing stock that is ultimately causing a rash of investors who are now using property as an investment vehicle.
The UK and US property management inc model is allowing people to grow a fantastic business which grows the incoming revenue streams through long term contracts and monthly fees for the management service, this means that the cost and the value of the business as it has ongoing revenues is an easy one to evaluate for a new franchisee looking for their own property management version.
When looking to evaluate one, what you should look at is if the model is based on a high street model or an online model.
Both are popular still although a real estate or a property management version will have a different pricing models and running costs and skill sets required for each may vary, based on the model selected.
