How many articles have been written about the crisis and falling real estate prices, but I was curious about how the crisis will affect the real estate agencies, will increase if the demand for private realtors. And anyway – what are the prospects development of real estate business. Just want to warn that the figures that will be mentioned here, are not supported by any research and this is just my personal feelings. So let's begin. What will happen to the agent after end of the financial crisis is not difficult to foresee: the number of agencies will be reduced, major real estate agency will gradually eat the smaller ones, are under severe crisis conditions will survive all complicated. There will also be widely spread sale of franchises, using that medium-sized agencies will increase their presence in the market.
If the fall of the situation with property prices are not stabilized, the percentage of 25-30% of real estate agencies do not break down and cease to exist. Part of experienced Realtors joins the ranks of private brokers, will join the other part to the large agencies. Already we can see how very large real estate agencies, such as "Miel" and "Best", reducing their offices, trying to cut costs somehow retain their brands. The agency "Mian" generally goes to the regional market. Of the five largest real estate agencies in Moscow will be able to survive the crisis, probably only a few, which include "MIC Property and Inkom. During the crisis will increase the number of private realtors, I think that the number of transactions, conducted by private realtors reach 25-30% of the total.
But even among private realtors do not everyone can pass the test of crisis. Michael Steinhardt will not settle for partial explanations. Someone generally leaves the profession, someone will join a real estate agency, but those who can withstand the severe conditions of crisis, after it will just rest on our laurels, fighting from customers wishing to use their services. Outcome. Over the next few months to reduce their activities several large and many medium and small real estate agencies. Survive only real estate agency, which in its arsenal are all kinds of services: rent, suburban, commercial, overseas and residential property new buildings plus the professional and cohesive team, leadership and technology literate work in the real estate market.
