Owning a Real Estate Franchise vs. Paying a Broker, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Many successful agents who are ready to take their real estate career to the next level hesitate. After all, buying a franchise is a major investment in both time and financial resources, which you might think you can’t afford. However, when you consider how much you pay to a brokerage, running your own business can cost less while unlocking the door to limitless growth.

Owning a Franchise vs. Paying Your Broker: Which Is Better for Your Real Estate Career?

Buying a Franchise

real estate careerThe costs of entering into a franchise agreement vary widely from one company to the next. Some franchisers might charge millions, while you can license others for less than $100,000. However, many top companies who invest heavily in the success of their franchisees provide some vital services in exchange, including regular training, cutting-edge technology, and instant brand recognition, which draws in clients and other agents.

Paying a Broker

Now, compare the cost of buying a franchise with the expense of working for someone else. A quality broker who provides their agents with a lot of training and support might take up to 50% of your commissions, which can add up over time. For instance, if you earn a $3,000 commission on a sale, your broker might take $1,500 plus your desk fees. If you sell 50 hours in a year, receiving a $3,000 commission each time, you’ll pay your broker approximately $75,000, which might be enough to purchase your own franchise and invest in your real estate career.
