The franchise model is open for anybody to consider if they’re willing to put in the hard work and are dynamic, dedicated and determined to succeed, but there are certain groups of people that may find our franchise model more attractive.
Why a Property Franchise?
Property is the back bone of the UK economy and the best performing asset class consistently over the last 50 years.
As the demand for somewhere to live increases with the growth of the population, the lack of deposit availability, lack of new build housing stock, decaying and dereliction of the old stock, the ageing and extended population and increasing immigration, plus many more factors. Where else in business can you guarantee this sort of continued growth. Everyone needs somewhere to live!
There are approximately 5 million rental properties in the UK, with over 500,000 self-managed and a further 1 million un-occupied or boarded up. As the market moves forward these 1.5 million properties, along with the standard anticipated growth of a further 2 million needed over the next five years or so coming to the market, this alone highlights the potential of this business.
The Go Direct Lettings Franchise opportunity is aimed at maximising your ability and income potential in this very dynamic and lucrative market place, by utilising many different strategies and mixed transferable skills to develop and combine several income streams.
We don’t believe in the overnight millionaire stories, in fact they’re nonsense. It takes time, training, education, dedication, opportunity and action, but what we do believe is our franchise offers all of these segments and with our guidance, ongoing support and training, and your dynamic input and positive mindset, you can definitely achieve success.
Why Become a Franchisee?
If you are interested in franchising but still weighing up the pros and cons of franchising versus starting a business by yourself, we have listed below some of the main advantages of becoming a franchisee against disadvantages of “going it alone”.
Less risk– if you are someone who likes to minimise risks, then franchising could be ideal for you. When you buy a franchise, you are buying a tried and tested business, where the systems are proven and most of the problems ironed out before you joined. But, bear in mind, any business has a risk, but this is vastly reduced by entering into a franchise which is supported by years of experience and it is a proven fact that the failure rate is more than halved.
85% of new start businesses fail with in the first 3 years, where 95% of franchises succeed.
Strong Brand Awareness
The more established the franchise, the greater the brand awareness. You need only look at some of the biggest brands in the world, such as McDonalds, Domino’s Pizza and Subway to get an understanding as to how powerful a franchise brand can be.
Go Direct Lettings
Each time we open a new franchise, we are ultimately generating or increasing awareness of the brand in that geographical location. As we continue to open new franchises, we are generating more and more brand awareness for all concerned. If you started a business yourself from scratch, you will be on the bottom rung of the development ladder.
National Supported Marketing
With a franchise, you will be supported by our on- going marketing across the brand, supporting each franchise and as the group grows, so will each individual franchisee exposure.
Location, Location, Location
Finding the right location for your business is a major contributor to how successful you may be as a business owner. We will assist you with site selection by using our knowledge of which demographic locations work best for our franchisees, as well as helping to negotiate a better rent and lease agreement.
I am at the beginning of my journey, but so far, so good I could not be happier and to be honest wish I had done this years ago. The current climate in the private rental sector is ripe for forward thinking motivated people to change their lives and run a business in a booming and growing industry, no matter what your experience is, the opportunity is huge.Paul
