We have a fine-tuned onboarding process and the initial business set-up requirements are very minimal when compared to other types of franchises. If you have a suitable vehicle, a mobile phone and a computer, you virtually have everything you need.
Previous property management experience is not required to start a Propertyscouts business! We'll provide all the training and support you need to thrive in the industry, whilst giving you the freedom to grow your business as much or as little as you like.
Steps to Becoming a Propertyscouts Business Owner
To get the ball rolling, all you need to do is get in touch with our friendly franchise team. From there, we will guide you through a 6 step process to becoming a business owner.
Contact us with any questions you have. We will then send you our Expression of Interest form which you can send or post back, along with a copy of your photo ID.
We will contact you to arrange a phone interview. This will be an opportunity for us to find out more about you and will also give you the chance to ask any further questions you may have about being a business owner.
You will be asked to sign our Confidentiality Agreement. You will then receive more information about the business (including financial figures, training programme details, and operations manual extracts). We will also request a refundable deposit from you.
Site Visit & Interview
You will join us for a site visit to observe a Propertyscouts business in action. We'll also carry out a face to face interview and planning workshop.
You will be sent the Franchise Agreement. You will have the opportunity to ask us any questions you may have about the terms and conditions before both parties sign the agreement.
Congratulations! You are now a Propertyscouts business owner. We will conduct on site training to get you up to speed and will then provide ongoing support as needed.
How much can you expect to earn in the first year as a Propertyscouts business owner? The answer depends on the individual! Some franchises exceed expectations and others don’t. Invariably, success is determined by the level of dedication and commitment displayed by the franchise owner.
Unlike other property management franchisors, we don't cap your growth. So long as you have the capacity to provide exceptional service to the properties you manage, you can grow your rent roll infinitely.
Propertyscouts Franchise Options
Our Classic Business option (starting from scratch) doesn’t come with any properties under management. This means you are responsible for building your own property management portfolio and there will be no income until you start gaining new clients.
This option requires a much lower initial investment than our Quick Start Business option. We can’t tell you it will be easy, but you will have full support to grow your business.
At Propertyscouts, we have a 100% success rate for 'start-up' franchises. All of our current franchises started from scratch, and all are still operating. A very small number have onsold to new business owners.
Quick Start Business
Our Quick Start Business gives you the chance to purchase an existing portfolio of properties under management (existing portfolios are commonly referred to as rent rolls). The major upside of this is there is income for the business owner from day one.
We will help to negotiate the purchase of an existing rent roll portfolio. We also assist with due diligence and end-to-end facilitation of the rent roll acquisition.
A Propertyscouts Quick Start Business will require a higher initial investment as the price is dependent on the size of the rent roll. Please note this option is only available where an existing rent roll is available for purchase.
