Why a Short Term Property Management Franchise?
Many people may not have even heard of a short term rental property before. Short term rentals are fairly new in the general market place. However, with companies such as Airbnb, Expedia, Booking.com, and many other large OTAs (online travel agencies) getting into short term rentals it is easy to see that this industry is going to continue to expand and at a very rapid pace. With over 60 million tourists a year visiting Florida alone, and out of that 50% decide to stay in a property that is zoned for short term rentals the demand for short term rentals is in very hot demand!
IPG Franchising was created over 10 years ago by Graham Greene. He has incorporated his expertise of property management, rentals, real estate, and franchising into IPG franchising for our franchisees to utilize. We now manage over 400 vacation rentals (ranging from a 1 bedroom condo unit to a 8 bedroom villa w/pool) in the central Florida/Disney World area with 14 franchisees.

Even when the jobs are outsourced there is still room to make money. (please see our proforma found below) With that being said, if you want to physically carry out the work yourself than you can retain the fees instead of having to outsource. Found below are just some of the jobs that can be performed:
Property Cleaning (after guest departures)
General Maintenance (from changing a light bulb to fixing a hole in the wall)
Generating rentals/income for your properties' homeowners

Franchisees will not receive an exclusive territory, but territories are defined. However, depending upon the size of the territory IPG will generally limit a maximum of 3 franchisees per location. For example, if a territory has 1,500 properties within it that size is suitable for 3 franchisees, however if the territory contained only 300 properties it would NOT be suitable for more than 1-2 franchisees.
