Propertyscouts Franchising

Training & Support

Your success is our success. At Propertyscouts, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive processes, including the start-up training and ongoing support we offer Propertyscouts franchisees. Whatever your background, we’ll empower you to succeed in your business venture.


No experience necessary!

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. 

Robust processes

We have robust processes that mean your business will function efficiently right from the start, giving you more time to focus on the important things, like building your business.

Comprehensive initial training & ongoing support

We have a comprehensive onsite initial training programme followed by ongoing coaching and support. You also benefit from being part of a nationwide network - meaning you’re connected to other Propertyscouts business owners and can discuss your business, exchange referrals, and pick up tips on best practices.

Marketing & more...

As a Propertyscouts business owner, you’ll also have access to a full range of marketing resources, including strategies to acquire new business, client information packs, flyers and print advertising templates, and a brand toolkit. We also offer a centralised admin service!

Access to support, knowledge and companionship from a network of property management experts

What's included?

Initial Training and Ongoing Support

  • On Site Training

    Each of our franchisees will go through initial on site training before commencing their business activities. This training covers a range of subjects from New Zealand law, to office management, to bringing on new business and includes some "on the job" training.

  • Ongoing Coaching & Support

    Following initial training, you’ll receive ongoing coaching and support from people who are experienced in all aspects of property management - to help you in any business scenario.

  • Operations Manual

    We have a comprehensive, 225 page Operations Manual that covers all aspects of property management. You will receive it when you become a Propertyscouts Business Owner.

  • Marketing and Branding Toolkit

    Including social media set up & assistance, and a collateral suite including everything from branded stationery to car signwriting templates.

  • Regular Internal Comms

    We send out regular internal comms to the entire Propertyscouts group to keep everyone updated on a broad range of subjects and to provide useful tips and tricks for day-to-day property management.

  • Propertyscouts Conference

    We host regular conferences for Propertyscouts Business Owners to provide in depth, group training, empowerment and a chance to connect face-to-face with other like-minded people.

More time to focus on growing your business

Centralised Admin

Every Propertyscouts Business owner has the opportunity to take advantage of our centralised administration service that is delivered via our Auckland-based Center of Excellence.

For an additional fee, our centralised administration service allows you to focus your time and energy on growing your business, rather than being stuck doing the day-to-day admin.

This vs That

Going it Alone vs Buying a Propertyscouts Franchise

Going it Alone

Starting your own property management business from scratch can be an incredibly rewarding journey. You have the opportunity to be your own boss with the creative freedom to build a business around your goals and lifestyle, rather than someone else's.

If you’d prefer to build your own processes and systems from the ground up without having to follow a pre-set path, going it alone is the best way to achieve this. However, if you’re risk averse, starting your own property management business from scratch may not be the right path for you. In New Zealand, it’s been estimated that 80% of new businesses fail in the first year.

Buying a Propertyscouts Franchise

If you are detail-oriented, good at following directions, and comfortable with established systems, franchising provides a quick and easy way to become a business owner. Buying a franchise will give you all the satisfaction of creating your own business, without the risks and the pain of starting from scratch. 

Becoming part of a franchise network with established processes is an obvious choice - especially when success rates are known to be over 90%. To date, every one of our franchise businesses has been and continues to be successful.
