            Six reasons to choose Open Door Auctions

              1. Consumer behaviour. Auctions are becoming an increasingly popular way of buying and selling property.
              2. No national competitor. Open Door is the only property auction franchise operating at a local rather than a regional or national level. It therefore offers a genuine alternative to conventional estate agents.
              3. Low start-up costs. Open Door does not require franchisees to have a high street presence which saves thousands of pounds. It also believes in an owner-operator model which reduces overheads and boosts profit margins.
              4. Multiple revenue streams. There are multiple revenue streams available to Open Door businesses including auction entry and buyer fees, sales commission and third-party referral fees (i.e. to solicitors).
              5. Efficient operations model. Open Door operates a refined business model that, when executed properly, can produce a year 1 pre-tax profit of £59k. Based on proven numbers, this increases to c.£100k by year 3.
              6. High-quality, dedicated support team. While all franchise propositions offer ongoing support, very few combine property knowledge with FTSE 100 consulting experience and/or trade body qualifications. This knowledge and experience is shared across the franchise network.
