This year, the Rawson Property Group expects to establish a further 38 new residential marketing franchises, in what it refers to as its northern region, i.e. all of South Africa except the Western and Eastern Cape and KZN. This means that by 2013 the group will have in excess of 100 residential property franchises in this area.
There is now an exceptionally strong demand for Rawson franchises and the more we establish, the more the word gets around and the more demand grows. This is a business that appeals very much to the independent entrepreneurially minded person. However, only one in perhaps 12 or 15 applicants is right for this sort of task and responsibility.
Much the same guidelines that govern the National Credit Act and the Consumer Protection Act apply to the award of a franchise.
