How do i buy a Real Estate Franchise?? I havent got a Real Estate licence yet, im in Sydney NSW and have found real estate courses just near my house for around $3500 to get a licence.6 weeks and i would be licensed. That is the Certificate 4 Course. Then i want to buy a Franchise..anyone know the cheapest and start up costs. I did ring up the Remax head office today and they asked me what area I was interested in opening and representing their Company and when I said "Walgett" they hung up on me. Their websites dont give you franchise costs only their Sales pitch on why they re the best Company etc. I do like Ray White website and their training for new franchisees.
