Help-U-Sell® Real Estate Named a Top Low-Cost Franchise

Sarasota, Fla. –Help-U-Sell® Real Estate has been named one of the top low-cost franchises in North America by national franchise market research firm Franchise Business Review. The honor resulted from a survey of the company’s franchisees earlier this year.

The criteria for selection are a high level of franchisee satisfaction and performance, and a required investment of under $100,000. Franchise Business Review surveyed more than 11,000 franchisees representing more than 145 low-cost brands. Help-U-Sell Real Estate’s initial franchise fee is $17,500.

Ron McCoy, Help-U-Sell Real Estate’s vice president of business development, participated in a panel discussion for the accompanying report of Top Low-Cost Franchises. The panelists discussed topics ranging from franchisee financial assistance to market analysis to what it takes to be a successful franchisee.

In the panel discussion, McCoy commented on a franchisee’s startup capital and its ability to predict success. “We’ve had people that barely qualified and turned out to be fantastic franchisees, and we’ve had people with loads of money who failed. When I think about our franchisees and particularly those who have been with us 10 years or longer, the factors involved around their success have very little to do with the capital they started out with. Our successful franchisees are those who have the ability to market, follow the plan and implement the plan.”

The entire report can be accessed via the Franchise Business Review website.
