Types of Estate Agent Franchises

There are four different types of estate agencies each focused on a different goal within the real estate industry. The type of estate agency franchise that an entrepreneur should consider depends on the individual, though overall their general characteristics are quite similar.

  • Residential Sales – The residential sales estate agency franchises focus on helping clients to buy and sell residential properties for their own personal use. Estate agency franchises are compensated on a commission basis for the sale, and are therefore inclined to get the best price for their client. Generally speaking these franchises have to be run by a licensed real estate sales person, thus an entrepreneurs involvement in such a business will be hands on.
  • Letting – A letting agency focuses exclusively on helping people find a property to rent. Or on the other side of the coin working with landlords to find new renters for their properties. The agents in this case also earn their fees based on commission, and are responsible for screening likely tenants for suitability before they move into the property franchises.
  • Commercial Agency – Commercial agencies work on real estate transactions involving large multi tenant residential properties, industrial properties, and commercial buildings. They help entrepreneurs find storefronts to open a new business in, or help them buy a new commercial building site. Similar to the other forms of agencies, they earn commission on their transactions. Their deals generally take a longer period of time to materialise, so a startup agency should expect to have sufficient extra cash on hand to operate while its first deals are being negotiated.
  • Major Estate Agent Franchises – The major estate agency franchises are like all globally recognised well-known brands. This means they are also able to charge more for their property franchises, however this extra recognition does help to bring in extra customers. A major estate agent franchise is a great way to help get the your agency business established than a smaller regional player, because of the extra traffic and training available to help the startup.
