About Platinum Property Partners
Platinum Property Partners is a franchise that offers a direct route to financial freedom through property investment. It is the world’s first property investment franchise and is based on a lucrative professional HMO (Houses in Multiple Occupation) model, developed by the company’s founder, Steve Bolton.
The unique franchise model sees franchisees build and develop their own specialist buy-to-let property portfolio, which in turn provides working professionals with high-quality rental accommodation, ensuring franchise partners achieve a lifelong substantial income and build assets for their future.
Combining the security of property and the certainty of franchising, Platinum’s 390-plus franchise partners generate, on average, between £50,000 and £150,000 in annual income from their property businesses – giving them that financial freedom but also giving them back their time, too.
Platinum was formed in 2007 and, since then, the franchise has helped more than 390 franchise partners achieve financial freedom through property investment.
“The great thing about Platinum is that they help you with so much more than your property portfolio. They help you with life planning. While the plan now is to have a passive income for retirement, who knows whether that will change. We are young and have young children, but we are excited about the choices we will have in the future.”
– Kelly and Simon Merry, PPP Franchise Partners since January 2018
The franchise is a full member of the British Franchise Association (BFA) and its franchise partners own more than 1,000 properties across 200 towns and cities in the UK.
Those properties are home to more than 6,000 housemates and are worth in excess of £250m.
How does the Platinum Property Partners franchise model work?
Using a tried and tested property investment business model honed over more than a decade, Platinum franchise partners invest in highly profitable Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs), supported, mentored and coached by the franchisor’s team of property and business experts.
What are HMOs?
Platinum’s franchise partners create high-quality HMOs, which are shared living properties for professionals and key workers.
Guided and supported by their mentors and Platinum’s team of experts, franchisees are able to buy the right properties in the right areas, before cost-effectively renovating them and turning them into multiple-bedroom homes which are let out on a room-by-room basis.
How much do I need to invest?
The franchise fee is just £24,000, however, you will need to be able to raise between £300,000 and £700,000 of working capital in total which will fund your franchise fee PLUS the purchase and renovation of your first HMO, depending on where you buy naturally.
The investment can come from cash, equity in your home and even pension funding and family assets in some cases.
Is there any help with meeting the Platinum Property Partners franchise costs?
Among the Platinum Property Partners network of industry experts are solicitors, accountants and mortgage brokers, who are able to offer bespoke services to franchise partners. Platinum Property Partners shares its industry expertise to ensure that your business will be backed by a unique and robust financial plan.
How much can a Platinum Property Partners franchise earn?
On average, Platinum franchise partners earn between £50,000 and £150,000 per year from their property businesses. On top of that, Platinum franchise partners:
• Enjoy average returns on equity of between 10 per cent and 15 per cent
• On average, earn £20,000 per property, per year – 40 per cent more than standard single tenancy buy-to-let properties
• Benefit from long-term capital growth in their properties, as they own all their assets 100 per cent.
“I’d already trodden the entrepreneurial path and decided I wanted a more formulaic path. I’m never going to be the type to sit back and retire early, but we wanted a low-risk business with proven systems in place and that’s why we looked at franchising.”
– Robin and Maxine, PPP Franchise Partners since Feb-2017
Do I need property investment experience?
You don’t need to have invested in property before joining the Platinum franchise.
The most important traits in a Platinum franchise partner are a determination to succeed and a desire to change your life.
Platinum franchise partners come from all walks of life. Some have owned other businesses, many have trodden the corporate path and now want more of their time back and others have come into money and simply want a solid investment for their futures that also generates an immediate income to replace or boost their existing salary.
Is running a Platinum Property Partners franchise a full-time job?
It can be, but this completely depends on the size of your property portfolio. Some Platinum Property Partners franchisees continue to work full time while building their portfolio, transitioning to a full-time professional landlord once their portfolio has grown, while others have the time and resources to fully commit to their business from the beginning. The size of your portfolio depends on your ambition and how much time you wish to spend building your business.
Why choose a Platinum Property Partners franchise?
Investing in HMOs is complex because of legal and licensing requirements, while mistakes like buying the wrong house in the wrong area, over-spending on renovations or not being able to obtain planning permission are common and can be incredibly costly.
With a Platinum franchise, you’ll be mentored and supported by a team of more than 50 industry experts, so you:
• Buy and renovate your properties cost-effectively, meaning a greater return on your investment
• Buy the right properties in the right area and avoid costly planning mistakes
• Find good housemates and keep them happy, so your rental income keeps coming in
• Have access to and support from Platinum’s ‘Power Team’ of specialist mortgage brokers, accountants, solicitors and letting agents.
“I couldn’t have done it without the mentoring because my career was in IT and application development – I didn’t know anything about houses other than the fact I lived in one.”
– Faith Staniforth, PPP Franchise Partner since 2016
