The NextHome franchise was founded in 2014 and began franchising that same year. This real estate franchise is an attractive investment for prospective franchise owners because it offers flexible 1-year or 5-year agreements and flexible fees that you choose how to pay - who else does that!? You can even switch your fees plan throughout the year to do what is best for your business. The franchise understands that the role of the real estate agent is being discounted or eliminated altogether through the billions that are invested in corporations that are trying to change the way people buy real estate. The NextHome franchise is trying to be one of the brokerages that keeps the real estate agent at the center of real estate transactions.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
