Who are we?
We’re Platinum Property Partners; the world’s first property investment franchise.
We offer an exclusive tried, tested and proven franchised business model which can generate you a lifelong income of £50,000 to £150,000 through a specialist buy-to-let property portfolio. Our Partners’ property portfolios achieve an average return on investment of 15%.
We are more than just a franchisor; our partners tell us we are a way of life. We truly believe in the power of a network and helping people like you achieve your goals in life. Whether that’s in control of your long-term finances, in control of your free time and how you enjoy it, or in control of your future and that of your family.
We are the UK’s fastest growing premium franchise and a full member of the British Franchise Association (bfa) and Approved Franchise Association (AFA).
How does it work?
With our guidance and support, we’ll teach you how to become a successful and professional property investor and landlord. We specialise solely in high quality Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) for professionals and key workers. This type of investment typically generates more than three times as much rental income as single-tenancy buy-to-let property.
Unlike other franchises, you own the assets from day one, so the income keeps coming in long after your commitment to us has expired. By utilising your existing finances, you can build a low-risk property investment business underpinned by a portfolio of appreciating assets, which in years to come will be a solid pension fund for you and a valuable legacy for your family.
You’ll learn everything you need to know, what costly mistakes to avoid and how, including which properties to buy and where, how to cost-effectively refurbish them, as well as obtain the required planning permissions and licensing.
Who can join?
Most of our Partners aren’t looking specifically for a way into property investment. They are looking for ways they can make changes in their lives now to secure their futures financially and make it possible to live their dreams.
For over 10 years, we have partnered with over 300 franchise partners, who have either already achieved or are well on their way to achieving financial security.
- Our franchise partners own 1,000+ properties across 200 towns and cities in England and Wales.
- The properties are home to more than 5,800 happy housemates.
- They are worth in excess of £250 million combined.
- Each property generates an average £17,000 annual gross profit – 40% higher than traditional buy-to-let models.
- 94% of our partners state that Platinum has met or exceeded their financial expectations after two years.
Our Partners come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Some have had director level roles in large companies, others have been accountants or solicitors. Many have run their own business or had a career in industry, teaching or the NHS. Some are mothers looking to find a suitable career as their children grow up.
The nature of your background and skills are much less important than your determination to build your own business, fully supported by us, and create substantial lifelong income as well as a better quality of life.
We pride ourselves on being an investor network – guided by a management team of business angels and comprising like-minded people with similar aspirations. Our philosophy is to Be More, Do More, Have More and Give More; something we still stand by today and encourage our team and partners to practice daily.
What do I need to invest?
In order to be considered as a potential Partner, you will need in excess of £300,000 to £700,000* of investment capital. This amount will depend on your investment location and the size of the property portfolio you want to build. These funds can come from various sources including cash, equity in your own home and other investments. In some cases, pension funding, and/or wider family assets can be utilised. You may also consider investing alongside someone else.
Partners are required to make an upfront investment and ongoing monthly costs which can vary depending on membership term and individual goals.
The franchise fee and ongoing monthly payments enable us to provide you with the best expert advice, guidance, training and support. It also allows us to negotiate special products and services with suppliers that enhances the profitability of your property portfolio. This is a significant investment and we are delighted that our Partners say that they could not have achieved the same returns if they were to go it alone.
* Accessible working capital typically needed in stages, over the first 12 months to fund initial franchise fee and the purchase of your own investment properties.
