Commercial Investors Group Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2023


We help you build a commercial real estate investing business from the ground up! Our CEO, Mike Sowers, literally wrote the book on Commercial Real Estate Investing.

Introducing Commercial Investors Group.....the first, and only, commercial real estate investing franchise system in the world!

We are looking to partner with local operators in major metropolitan markets. You get full training, support, software, and a 7-Step system to grow a portfolio of cash flowing commercial investments and multiply your net worth quickly. 

Our system includes access to a private equity fund, a proprietary software, a launch bootcamp, weekly training and deal support, and even a personalized Deal Coach!

Daily activities include networking with brokers, touring and analyzing commercial properties, negotiating terms for purchase, overseeing renovation projects, and hiring and selecting leasing and property management vendors.

We are looking for candidates that have a burning desire to invest through real estate, but want to do it with as little risk as possible, and leverage an existing brand, system, and structure. 

You should have great communication skills, negotiating experience, an analytical mindset, and have a deep passion for "crunching numbers". You do NOT need prior real estate experience, or millions of dollars for the down payments. We will teach you the industry, and teach you how to raise equity capital through a process called syndication, even if you have no financial connections whatsoever. 

If you have prior experience in house flipping, landlording, construction, leasing, real estate sales, or property management you will learn our system faster than those who do not come from this background. 

If you want control over how you are investing your own capital in order to multiply it and create recurring revenue that lasts for generations to come, then this concept is for you. 

Imagine getting full training on how to generate leads, schedule tours, analyze properties, make offers, perform due diligence, and even fund your deal using other people's money! Then after you close we help you with overseeing the construction, leasing and property management so you can successfully execute your business plan and either refinance and hold long term or sell it for a big profit!

Our franchise opportunity is the fastest pathway to commercial ownership on the planet, and you are only one inquiry away from locking in your territory before it's sold!

2023 Franchise Requirements Needed to Own a Commercial Investors Group Franchise.

What does a Commercial Investors Group Franchise Cost?

Commercial Investors Group franchise fees for 2023:

Total Investment: $200,000

  • Includes the franchise fee, start up capital, and working capital for the first deal

Minimum Net Worth: $300,000

  • Candidates with capital they can invest in their own deals will have faster success raising capital from others since they have "skin in the game", but our system teaches people to get seller financing or raise 100% of the down payment by forming a partnership with other investors through a process called "syndication". 

Franchise Fee: $100,000

  • Our territories are broken into Designated Marketing Areas or DMA's.  One DMA is $100,000 franchise fee.  Franchise Candidates can purchase multiple DMA's at $100,000 each.

Ad: Franchisees become part of an Ad Counsel with other Franchisees in their territory

  • Franchisees have a minimum marketing spend with a Market Launch at the beginning of their business of $25,000.
  • Franchisees will become part of an Ad Counsel, a group of franchisees sharing a Designated Marketing Area to fully utilize the marketing potential of that area.  This cooperative will help spread the marketing spend and utilize the lead generation potential of their territories.  We help them design and implement these marketing campaigns using our proprietary software, CRETools. 

Item 19: Yes

Average Number of Employees: 0

  • This business does not require any employees, but the corporate location has a President, Asset Manager, Appointment Setter, and Executive Assistant. Candidates may also choose to vertically integrate their accounting, construction, leasing, or property management teams as opposed to outsourcing. 

Visa Candidates: No

  • This concept requires the candidate to get large loans from community banks and credit unions and this process is very difficult if you are not a citizen of the US. 

Ownership: - Active

  • The candidate is the asset manager of the business and performs the work; however, candidates with lots of capital can put a President in place within 6-12 months to take over the active day-to-day management of the business and return to a truly passive business with the exception of having to manage the president. 

Home-Based: Yes

  • We do require they have an office so our training team, investors, and potential sellers have a professional setting for meetings, but the candidate can work from there on an as-needed basis. Most candidates will seek to purchase an office or flex building and office out of the building they own a couple days a week. 

B2B: Yes

  • Commercial real estate is superior to residential investing because it's done during banker's hours, and your investors and tenant's are other businesses that are more fulfilling to work with than the typical single family home renter. 

Master Franchise Opportunities: Yes

  • We are open to discussing the opportunity for someone to buy multiple locations and place systems in place to develop those territories. We are eager to gain traction in any MSA containing at least 10,000 commercial parcels. This concept does NOT work in rural america because the low tenant demand creates vacancy risk. 

Veteran Discount: Yes, 10% off franchise fee

  • You fought for our country, and we are going to fight for your success.
