           Downside of a Real Estate Franchise

Franchising is not for everyone!!!

Franchise standards and policies limit the scope of business independence. Many brokers fear loss of control and personal and professional autonomy.

There are also financial considerations. Initial franchise fees may be expensive. Franchisees also face ongoing costs such as percentages of franchise revenue and advertising/marketing fees.

Due diligence is important to ensure that the franchise parent is financially sound with no legal or ethical issues pending.

Exit strategies may affect your ability to compete in the market if the franchise relationship does not work out.

A reputable real estate franchisor welcomes your questions about their real estate franchise opportunity. After all, your success contributes to their success.

          Finding the Right Real Estate Franchise

Before you affiliate with a real estate franchise, do your homework. Remember, your business success may depend on it.

Most experts recommend that as you search for a potential franchise you do the following:

  • Search the Internet. Begin with a general search of "real estate franchises" and follow the links to top real estate opportunities.
  • Contact business brokers who specialize in franchises. A good business broker who knows the market and helps screen franchises for you makes their fee a worthwhile investment.
  • Attend franchising trade shows where major real estate brands are represented.
  • Make a list of well-known national/international real estate brands and contact them for information on their real estate.

Finally, double check your research at the National Association of Realtors' website. They have articles, statistics, and current news about real estate franchising.

       What is a Master Real Estate Franchise?

In most cases, a master real estate franchise grants an individual or business exclusive rights in a selected area to license real estate franchises and oversee the development of a real estate brand.

You must qualify professionally and financially for a master real estate franchise. The initial franchise fee may be significantly higher than single real estate franchises. Sales and management experience are required.

There are also other factors you should consider before taking the plunge into master real estate franchises. Research the franchise brand. Research the master franchise territory to ensure it has high potential for franchises. Have a franchise attorney review the master franchise contract. Talk with other master franchisees about their experience. Learn from their success and challenges.

Depending on the franchise agreement, master franchisees will receive a share of franchise fees sold in their territory. They also receive a percentage of monthly income generated by their sub-franchises. When a master real estate franchise matches your personal business goals and is a smart financial investment, it is an opportunity to get in on the ground floor to develop and grow a real estate brand in your area.

   Before you Invest in a Real Estate Franchise

In any business venture, it is always a good idea to build a solid professional and information resource network. This is especially true when investing in a real estate franchise. Find a good franchise attorney and tax consultant to add to your real estate resource team.

Likewise, it's important to know the laws governing your business. Federal and state laws govern buying and selling franchises. The Federal Trade Commission website has useful information about franchises and franchise regulation by the states. The American Franchisee Association (AFA) and American Association of Franchisees and Dealers (AAFD) are national trade groups that provide information on all aspects of franchising.

    Training Offered by Real Estate Franchises

One of the leading benefits of association with a top real estate franchise is access to proactive, on-going and comprehensive career training.

Although initial pre-license training differs from state to state and is a prerequisite to enter real estate, on-going training at all levels increases the odds for success for realtors and their brokers.

Franchisors offer training to franchisees on all aspects of the real estate franchise and making their franchise a success. Franchisors offer courses on management strategies and decision-making, continuing education, sales, lead generation, negotiation, time management, and other career skills classes.

Training should also be provided for real estate accreditation and certifications such as the Residential Marketing Masters (RMM) designation. Franchise coaching and mentoring services are also proven paths to career success.

When considering which real estate franchise to choose, easy and inexpensive training for you and your team should be a relationship priority.

                           Franchise Offering

The Uniform Franchise Offering Circular (UFOC) is a valuable resource for due diligence when considering a real estate franchise. The UFOC is a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) required by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for all franchise offerings. It must be provided to all prospective franchise buyers by the franchisor at the first face-to-face meeting or 10 business days prior to any contract signing or payment of money related to the franchise relationship.

The UFOC covers 23 key areas of disclosure. Some of the topics include information about the franchise parent company and business experience of all executives, litigation history, financial statements, franchise fees and other costs, restrictions, and obligations.

It is an imposing document filled with legal descriptions and terminology but invaluable for people entering into franchising relationships. Ask your accountant or a franchise attorney to review the UFOC, put it in layman's terms and examine the pros and cons for your real estate franchise investment.
