I was walking our local streets whilst taking my young son for a walk, and I noticed a car decked out with signage for Uhoo Property Sales, so when I got home I checked it out further. It turns out that Uhoo is a new real estate franchise that’s about to be launched around Australia in June / July, and this is what their website uhoo.com.au says about them:
Real Estate agents will have the opportunity to work for themselves in a Principal agent fashion but without having to deal with the day to day administration and running of a traditional real estate office.
This in turn allows them to do what they do best and what they love doing – Sell Property.
This sounds to me like a completely online real estate office … perhaps they operate without a shopfront?
Maybe that’s what they’re doing, maybe not, but I can certainly see a lot of benefits to operating in such a way. I work for a few agents who basically run their operation from home and only go into the office when they have to, and they’ve been quite successful.
