3 Reasons Why Franchise is a Wise Investment

CEO and Co-Founder opens up about why franchise is a best-bet investment

It’s hard to believe – but we used to live in a world where people booked airline tickets through a travel agent, had to wait a week for the next episode of our favorite tv show to air, or had to go to the store to buy a product that now shows up on our doorstep.

We’re quickly approaching an era where buying and selling a home without an agent will be the norm – and in the markets where franchise is operating, that era is already here. was founded in 1998 with the idea that the traditional real estate model was broken – and that agents, on the whole, collected large commissions for providing very little value. In the 20+ years since we opened, has become the largest for sale by owner marketing franchise with over 100 units open in North America.

Now, is ready to rapidly expand in the United States where the real estate market is primed for disruption.

Here are three quick reasons why investing in a is a wise choice:

A Property franchise is an affordable business to own

“ is one of the rare business opportunities that is truly disruptive and affordable,” says Ken LeBlanc, CEO and Co-Founder. “This is a business that you can get started extremely quickly. There’s almost zero overhead at the beginning, as you don’t need an office, employees, or very much equipment to get up and running, which means that the costs of running your business continue to be low going forward. We’ve proven this model over the last 20+ years in business and we know exactly what it takes to help you become successful.”

The demand is incredible

The Economist calls real estate brokers “a total ripoff” and names them as a reason why real estate has become so expensive in the U.S.

Why are so many homeowners still using this outdated approach? The answer is simple: hasn’t entered their markets yet. Not only is more affordable than traditional agents, but we also provide a far superior service.

“9 out of 10 people hire a real estate agent, but does it have to work that way? No.” says Walter Melanson, Director of Partnerships. “Any idea away from that is disruptive. Our model is disruptive because real estate brokers control the market place and our model puts the homeowner at the center. This consumer-focused approach that cuts out the middleman is exactly what the public is favoring right now and that’s why for sale by the owner listings is the way of the future.”
