Investors Seek Alternatives to Stock Market Volatility

Although the stock market has been performing better of late, more investors are seeking less volatile opportunities -- promising investments, without the "roller-coaster ride." On top of the considerable risk of investing in stocks, the rash of reported incidents of accounting abnormalities and other "deviant" business behavior has done little to inspire investor confidence.

Although the stock market has been performing better of late, more investors are seeking less volatile opportunities -- promising investments, without the "roller-coaster ride." On top of the considerable risk of investing in stocks, the rash of reported incidents of accounting abnormalities and other "deviant" business behavior has done little to inspire investor confidence. Revelations of such conduct can send stock prices plummeting overnight, and tie up what funds are left in complicated court cases for years.

As a result, investors are turning their attention to franchising, already one of the fastest growing investment sectors. The hottest opportunities lie in Master Franchising or Regional Franchising, variations on the traditional franchise arrangement, to which savvy entrepreneurs are flocking.

The advantages over other forms of investment are many, and the risks much more manageable. Investing in a Master Franchise or Regional Franchise allows for direct ownership in an expanding company. The investor shares in gross revenues, rather than uncontrollable net revenues. Unlike stock, the value of the investor's share can never be diluted by subsequent issues. And Regional Franchises receive a portion of the gross revenues of each franchise within their territory.

One such company, Rent 1 & Sale 1 Realty, is being heralded by some Franchise Business Brokers as a potentially one of the most explosive franchises to hit the nation in some time. Positioned to capitalize on already remarkable growth, the company has eliminated many of the traditional obstacles that make it difficult for investors to enter Master Franchising or Regional Franchising.

Zack Alawi of Franchise Development Center cites this advantage as the basis for his belief that investors will flock to this opportunity. Through its affiliate, Buy/Rent Free, Rent 1 & Sale 1 Realty has amassed an enviable track record as it nears the nationwide launch of its franchise opportunities. Alawi feels the positive numbers and strong reputation will speak for themselves, reporting that “requests have been coming in from all over the country, and as far away as Australia.” He sees no end in sight.

Rent 1 & Sale 1 Realty services all aspects of residential real estate, and includes renters, landlords, buyers, and sellers in its customer base. Its business model takes advantage of the inverse correlation between rentals and sales, and the direct correlation between interest rates and rentals. In conditions that dampen sales, rentals rise, and those conditions usually hit when interest rates go up. With both rentals and sales services to offer, Rent 1 & Sale 1 Realty franchises are in a position to offer customers all of their options, putting the franchisee in the strongest possible position. In turn, the Master or Regional Franchise maintains a viable network of well-supported franchises, regardless of economic conditions.

Alawi commented, "An investment opportunity that minimizes the risk, stays busy in any economic climate, and puts all of its cards on the table up front, can't help but attract the investor looking for an opportunity designed to serve him for decades to come."
