Start Your Own Revolutionary Home-Based Estate Agency
How would you like to be part of something revolutionary?
The estate agency world is evolving to meet the needs of the housing market of the future.
We are offering you a unique and exciting franchise opportunity in this dynamic sector.
- Enjoy a work/life balance.
- Set your own targets and life goals.

Open House was established in 2010 to offer people a new way to buy, sell or rent a property after the housing crisis hit in 2008.
The success of the model is tried and tested with our low-cost model supporting all our agents through the recent Covid-19 pandemic.
As a ‘hybrid’ estate agent, you are able to combine the benefits of an online estate without compromising on delivering world-class customer service, supported by a national network.
We are now expanding our network of personal local estate agents throughout England and Wales and we are looking for individuals with the drive and entrepreneurial flair to build a profitable and sustainable business.
With massively reduced overheads, our agents are able to compete with all the high street and online chains.
Our franchisees operate in an exclusive geographical area, based from home or a small office.

You, Your Future, Your Business
As the business owner, you will have the freedom to run and develop your own business – but with the help, support, buying power and shared learning that comes with being part of a nationwide franchise network.
We will take the worry out of your business so you can concentrate on looking after your clients and selling or letting their properties! This results in a better bottom line for you, with all agents being paid directly and keeping 85% of all commissions.
The Future of Estate Agency
The way that people are searching for property has changed.
Over 80% of successful home buyers and tenants now use the internet to search for a new property.
Combine this with those who spotted their next home on Social Media or by a ‘for sale’ board in front of the house, then this figure is a lot closer to 100%.
This means that the traditional estate agency model needs to change, but not at the cost of a quality personal service and the benefit of having a local agent.
We offer a revolutionary new concept in estate agency and, as one of our personal agents, you’ll be able to deliver a fully personalised estate and letting agency service at a fraction of the cost of most high street and online agencies by reducing unnecessary overheads, such as expensive high street stores and over ambitious TV campaigns. We can then pass these savings on to our customers.
Many Property Experts have already identified ‘hybrid’ estate agents as the ‘future of estate agency’ with two thirds of agents believing that a high-street presence will no longer be required by 2024 or sooner.
As an Open House Personal Agent, you will be able to combine the best of what a traditional agent offers with the latest cutting-edge technology of an online agent.
Multiple Income Streams
You will benefit from numerous income streams from property sales, lettings and ancillary services (which protect you from the effects of any cyclic market conditions).
You will earn money from:
- Sales and lettings fees
- Mortgage commissions
- Conveyancing commissions
- EPC commissions
- Premium property listings
- Insurance commissions
- Safety certificate commissions
- Ongoing management fees
With low set-up and ongoing costs and the ability to earn from multiple income streams, this really is an exciting business opportunity for anyone seriously considering starting their own property services company.
