Fees and Royalties

Traditionally, a franchisee pays an initial fee to purchase the franchise and a royalty for ongoing use of the logos, marks, marketing tools, and other franchise specific materials.  BY OWNER's franchise fee compares quite favorably with other real estate franchises.

BY OWNER also has a very competitive royalty, a portion of which is used for ongoing advertising for the franchisees -- we do not charge an additional fee for corporate advertising. 

We’ll be happy to discuss all of our fees with you in detail.  In the meantime, here are some numbers which you may find useful for comparing with other real estate franchises.  A synopsis of real estate franchise fees may be found at Realtor.org - 2005 Franchise Report.  This reference is in Adobe format.  If you do not have Adobe Reader, it may be downloaded at www.adobe.com.

Your BY OWNER franchise fee will include some supplies so that you can open and be ready for business on your opening day. Your area representative will help in formulating your opening costs. A table outlining those costs can also be found in your Franchise Offering Circular.
