Australian-based property photography franchise, Top Snap, is launching its concept into the UK in 2013.
According to Helen Clarke, General Manager of Top Snap, the company decided to expand as a result of its strong growth and proven franchise model. She said: “In the last three years alone Top Snap has increased its number of territories by almost 200 per cent to a total of 47 areas in Australia and New Zealand, while turnover has increased fivefold. In recognition of this, we have been named one of Australia’s top 50 fastest growing companies for the past two years’ running.
“With growth this strong and an established and proven franchise system behind us, we felt the time was right to bring our successful model to the UK.”
Clarke said that the company’s growth is down to a number of factors including its massive appeal to franchise owners. She added: “Our franchise owners spend their days taking photographs of houses for a living – something they might only have dreamed about doing professionally beforehand.
“Given that research has shown professionally photographed listings can sell for a higher price in a shorter time frame, it goes without saying that these days estate agents need to be engaging the services of a professional photographer for all their listings. This is where Top Snap comes in – thanks to our extensive product range including daytime, dusk, elevated, aerial and commercial photography, as well as floor plans, copywriting, virtual tours and virtual furniture, Top Snap franchise owners will be perfectly placed to assist UK estate agents with their property marketing needs, helping to maximise the chances of a quicker sale at a better price.
“On top of this, franchise owners will be joining a successful and supportive franchise system, which as well as having a highly affordable entry and start-up costs, as a mobile franchise has the added bonus of low ongoing costs. Franchise owners will also benefit from detailed hands-on training and extensive business and marketing support, all backed by a sophisticated customer relationship management and client delivery platform.”
