Thinking of selling your Estate Agency business?

In an increasingly challenging market the thought of selling up may have crossed your mind...

Estate agency is extremely competitive and constantly coming up with new initiatives to combat every day challenges and online evolutions can become tiresome.

There are many factors to think about if you want to sell your business. You have to contact the right sales agents to market, have your accounts in order and have P&L’s ready to hand over. This isn’t an easy task, can be time consuming - and you may not get the results, or price, you’d hoped for.

Why not franchise your business instead?

If you want to bring your business ahead of the curve and compete with the ‘well-known brands’ on the high street you might consider the franchise route. Winkworth could be your solution. As well as retaining the day to day control of running your business, you’ll gain full support from our back office that’s been operating for more than 40 years. You’ll no longer have to think about marketing, IT, accounts, business and digital development to combat every day and online struggles; we’ll do that for you.

And the costs? As with everything, there is a fee involved - but it’s a small one. If you think about the percentage of what you would be paying to your franchisor to what you’re paying out now, there really would be very little comparison.

Winkworth has funding in place to be able to offer the right businesses goodwill payments to assist in converting to us. This funding would aid towards the rebranding of your current business, potential hiring of new staff and initial marketing campaigns.

If you want to know more about how you could convert to Winkworth and be part of a growing UK network, rather than selling up – contact us today.
