Open House franchise



Open House estate agents are offering a unique and exciting franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to start their own estate agency business.

With ambitious plans to capitalise on the changing estate agency business model at a grass roots level, Open House are looking to expand its current estate agency network throughout England and Wales via a skilled team of franchised personal local estate agents.

Operating in exclusive geographical areas, based from home or a small office; Open House is looking for individuals with the drive and entrepreneurial flair to build a profitable and sustainable business, with massively reduced overheads allowing Open House agents to compete with all high street and online concepts.

For a minimal investment, this full ‘turn key’ package provides successful applicants with a comprehensive training programme (including an industry recognised qualification) and structured business support systems, to enable franchisees to offer a full estate agency and tenant finder service.

You, your future, your businessProperty and estate agency franchise - Open house

As an independent owner and operator you will have the freedom to run and develop your own business – plus the help, support, buying power and shared learning that comes with being part of a nationwide franchised network.

Let us take the worry out of your business, so you can concentrate on looking after your clients and selling or letting their properties! This results in a better bottom line for you, with an OTE of £55,000 pre-tax profit in year 1.

The future of estate agency

The way that people are searching for property has changed, with over 80% of successful home buyers and tenants using the internet to search for property. Combine this with those who spotted their next home through local press advertising or by a ‘for sale’ board in front of the property; then this figure rises to a lot closer to 100%. This means that the traditional estate agency model needs to change, but not at the cost of a quality personal service and the benefit of having a local agent.

Offering a revolutionary new concept in estate agency, as one of our personal agents, you’ll be able to deliver a fully personalised estate and letting agency service at a fraction of the cost of most high street agencies and online concepts – by reducing unnecessary overheads, such as expensive high street stores, over ambitious TV campaigns, and pass these savings on to our customers.

This new model has been identified by many experts as the ‘future of estate agency’ and the first  true hybrids concept in this country, including the property media and estate agents themselves – with two thirds of agents believing that a high street presence will no longer be required by 2018 or sooner.

As an Open House Personal Agent you will be able to combine the best of what a traditional agent offers with the latest cutting edge technology of an online agent.

This is not internet selling; this is the future – local online estate agency.
