Franchising is a great option for those looking to start their own property management business. Going the franchise route provides security of the training and proven systems of the franchisor to rely on. It makes sense that franchises have a higher success rate than starting a business from scratch, but starting a franchise business still has its risks.

FRANCHISING PROS

A proven system. When buying a franchise you get access to a proven system and business model. Most Franchises boast decades of experience and success in the industry.

Training and support. Many people realize that starting a new business is no small endeavor. A good franchise provides you with superior training and ongoing support, giving even the most experienced business owners a greater chance for success.

Name recognition. When you buy a property management franchise you tap into an already established brand. People are more apt to trust a brand that is established, recognizable, and has a good track record.

Networking. On top of being able to get support from the franchisor, you get access to an entire network of franchisees just like you to learn from and grow with.

FRANCHISING CONS

Startup costs. Buying a property management franchise will require an initial investment generally in the mid to high 5-figures, to cover franchise fees and overhead.

Ongoing fees. There are ongoing fees and royalties payed to the franchisor as part of the franchise agreement. Though you benefit from the support and marketing efforts, you will always owe a percentage of your profits to the franchisor.

Less autonomy. Franchisees are obligated to follow the system. The franchisor looks for franchisees that have the ability to be and team player and not a “know it all”. As a franchisee you are bound to follow the systems and policies determined by the franchisor.

Contractual agreement. When you buy a franchise you sign a contract that locks you in for a certain amount of time (usually 5 to 20 years). Breaking a franchise agreement can be difficult and costly.
