In search of new blood, the world of real estate and, more specifically, real estate franchising, is opening itself up to the new generation. Old school real estate agencies are a thing of the past. Thanks to its ease of access and the changes brought about by new technologies, the franchise system is ideal for interested young people.
Real estate: a sector open to young people
One of the strengths of the real estate sector for young people is its ease of access. Indeed, for those who want to start out in the profession, training is for the most part carried out after hiring. This is all the more true for franchises, because in this case the training for the concept and values of the company are an integral part of the business model. That is why the major chains are in priority looking for motivated people with good business sense and a passion for human contact. In addition to not requiring large financial investments, the profession of real estate franchisor is very favourable for those who are taking their first steps in the job market.
The digital revolution in real estate
In addition to being easy to access, the evolution of the sector brought about by new technologies is leading it to welcome young people with open arms. The world of real estate has dramatically changed since the appearance of mobile internet. The vast majority of real estate purchases today are made via the internet, so the sector must adapt to this technological revolution. Many of the major brands have therefore rethought their business model and are investing in digital technology. The big names in the world of real estate are looking for new franchisors and are in search of "digital natives". Thanks to their familiarity with new technologies, these latter are the most apt to accompany customers throughout their purchase in a new way using real or virtual techniques.
A world of opportunities for young people
As we have seen, thanks to its ease of access and its many opportunities, the world of real estate franchising is ideal for young people. It offers a perfect entry into the world of work for those who will shape our future.
