Starting a Property Management Business

A High Demand Industry for High Achievers

As you have been evaluating franchise opportunities, you may have been intrigued by the different types of businesses in the home services sector. Property management may be a lesser-known segment of the home services industry, but it can be personally and professionally rewarding.

The property management industry offers several advantages to high-achieving entrepreneurs, including low entry barriers, growing demand, and stability. Many property owners and landlords find themselves ill-equipped with the time and skills necessary to manage their rental properties effectively, and they readily turn to professional management firms for expertise.

If you decide to start a property management business, you can do it on your own, or you can consider buying an existing business or franchise. At Real Property Management®, we are advocates of the franchise ownership approach as we have been helping franchisees get up and running quickly and supporting their growth for over 30 years.

Why The Property Management Industry?

Property management plays a significant role in the real estate industry. There never seems to be a shortage for demand as owners often prefer to shed the responsibilities for leasing, rent collection, evictions, and property maintenance and focus on other aspects of the business.

According to recent statistics provided by, rental housing makes up a significant portion of the overall housing market:

  • 42.9 million or 34.5% of U.S. households rent their homes
  • 100.9 million people live in rental housing
  • 44% of rental properties are suburban
  • 41% of rentals in the U.S. are urban

And whether owners are renting a residential home, condo, multi-plex or small apartment complex, the need for professional management services to help maximize rental income and minimize expenses and inefficiencies is essential.
