NAR letter to FTC Regarding Franchise Agreements and Franchisor Business Practices

Issue Date: June 08, 2023

On June 9 NAR sent a letter to FTC Secretary, April Tabor. The ability of a real estate broker organization to be affiliated with a franchise provides equity, reliable customer service, and helpful options for buyers and sellers. Franchisors help the franchisees protect their own investments, allowing more individuals to be small business owners, all while creating a stable marketplace for consumers. The letter asks the Commission to consider the nuances of various franchised industries and the many benefits afforded to consumers with such models.
