When we meet people who are considering opening a HomeXperts franchise, often one of the common phrases I hear is “I am passionate about property.” Property is a known national obsession with the UK population! An Englishman’s home is their castle, we love watching property prices and it is still an aspiration for many to climb onto that first rung of the property ladder.
But how do you turn your passion for property into an exciting and rewarding career?
I do not actually consider HomeXperts to be a ‘property business’, but instead a ‘people business’. For me, I feel the most important factor to enable you to be successful as an estate and letting agent, is not to love property, but to love working with people. If you genuinely like working with people, presenting your caring attitude and delivering an amazing level of service, then there are some powerful reasons for working in property.
You can genuinely change people’s lives
What could be better than meeting people, guiding them through what is one of the most stressful times of their life, moving home. You will provide solutions to their problems and ultimately, you will enable them to continue with their future.
Every day is different
Variety really is the spice of life in estate agency. You really cannot get much more varied than selling and letting a diverse array of properties, to an exciting mix of clientele. Every day is different, so you should never get bored. You can be dealing with a huge range of tasks on a daily basis. Completing actions that cover all aspects of the lifecycle of selling and letting properties.
Show me the money
Whilst there are no guarantees, the money you can earn from selling and letting properties can be exceptional. Our top franchisees earn over £10,000 per month! And with property prices rising by 7.2% in 2016 (Source: UK House Price Summary December 2016), the future looks bright for estate and letting agency. In addition to this, Rightmove predicts that prices for 2017 will rise by 4%.
However, I urge you not to decide to start this business just for financial gain, do it because you want to deliver a truly exceptional level of customer service in an exciting industry.
You don’t need previous experience
What is great about this business is that you do not need to be an established estate and letting agent to begin your journey. Joining a franchise such as HomeXperts will give you such an edge. Your determination, coupled with our award-winning training, will ensure that you can become a professionally qualified estate and letting agency owner by springtime!
So, with a passion for property and a love of working with people, you can carve a totally new career as an estate and letting agent. Call our recruitment team on 01905 678853 to start your business
