Imagine, you’re the managing director of a multi-million pound property development company and you’re looking for a firm to sell your properties. Who would you rather work with: an established agency with a large portfolio and a database of international investors or a property sourcer operating on their own?
Many one-man bands in the property industry can relate to being judged by the bigger players. Whether it’s your “unprofessional email address” or the quality of your logo etc, you should really be seen for your property skills and knowledge. It all comes down to one thing: the decision-makers of big companies look for partnerships with businesses who are reputable, have a proven track record and can be trusted on delivering their proposals. Having a recognisable, trusted brand name behind you can open the doors to working with bigger companies, generating a steady cashflow.
Being faced with the issue himself, Shahid Aslam joined Sourced Franchise alongside his son Zak, which allowed him to scale his property sourcing business, all thanks to having the Sourced brand and reputation behind him.
After years of experience in trading property deals, Shahid wanted to step up, working with larger developers and landlords who had sizable portfolios. Despite his success, Shahid found it challenging to convince larger companies to work with him. He quickly realised that what he needed was to join a larger network and put a reputable brand behind him. Very soon after joining Sourced, Shahid started reaping the benefits.
In January alone, the father and son duo sold over 20 rent to rent deals, each within 48 hours of passing them to Sourced HQ team for marketing. The typical sourcing fee a franchisee earns per deal ranges between £3,000 – £4,000, making January successful and profitable for Shahid and Zak.
Shahid says: “Joining Sourced has been one of the best business decisions I’ve made. Before joining, I wouldn’t have dreamt of doing multi-million pound deals.”
