2016 saw the biggest year of growth for Open House with the achievement of having 100 national agents completed by the close of the year.

Open House offers a unique opportunity for its franchisees to run their own businesses whilst at the same time being part of a team. The ability to offer competitive selling and letting fees, combined with a truly personalised service; it is expected that Open House Estate Agents will continue to ruffle the feathers of some the less proactive traditional and online agents and help to substantially reduce the costs associated with moving home whilst striving to improve the customers experience.

Unlike other estate and letting agency franchises, the set-up and ongoing costs for the Open House franchise are small; which makes this opportunity a viable option for even those with a modest budget. Open Houses’ USP is that the agents control how much they invest and its not dictated for them. This is contrary to some competitors who control budgets and ask agents to make a loss in year one.

Part of a network of ‘local personal agents’ with property expertise and local area knowledge, backed with national marketing support; Open House franchisees will combine the best of traditional estate agency service with the low fees associated with personal property selling websites.

David Clement, Open House Director, commented “The way that people are selling property has changed with customers knowing they can break away from traditional pricing structures, Open house gives you the infrastructure to run your own business but with the comfort of being part of a larger national network.”

“However, people still value the expert service and local knowledge that an estate agent can provide. After all, your property is likely to be your most valuable asset and it makes sense to employ a professional to handle the sale. This is why the majority of home sellers still choose to pay up to 1% +VAT commission to an estate agent” said David.

Open House offers a range of selling and letting options to suit all budgets, which could quite literally save people thousands of pounds. These low fees are achieved by reducing unnecessary overheads, group buying power and the centralisation of non-customer facing functions. Our aim is to provide a local agent experience combined with internet prices.

“The day of the high-street agent and their associated high fees has gone. Consumers are more informed today and are prepared to shop around for great value service. This is exactly what our franchisees will be delivering.” David continued.

Operating in exclusive geographical areas, based from home or a small office; Open House is looking for individuals with the drive and entrepreneurial flair to build a profitable and sustainable business, with massively reduced overheads.

This full ‘Business in a Box’ package provides successful applicants with a comprehensive training programme (including an industry recognised qualification) and structured business support systems, to enable franchisees to offer a full estate agency and tenant finder service.
