Rent roll own­er­ship is now one of the lead­ing rea­sons agents are sign­ing up to @re­alty, ac­cord­ing to Di­rec­tor JJ Tay­lor. Speak­ing to Elite Agent, Mr Tay­lor says rent rolls are an un­tapped as­set for agents op­er­at­ing un­der a fran­chise model, which re­tains own­er­ship if the agent leaves the com­pany or trans­fers else­where.

"Our agents have com­plete own­er­ship of their rent rolls – they can hold on to them if they leave or can sell all or part of their list at any time to gen­er­ate ad­di­tional in­come as re­quired," he said.

Perth-based @re­alty agent Phil Tay­lor says some agents in­cor­rectly as­sume own­ing and man­ag­ing a rent roll is costly and time-con­sum­ing.

"Un­der the @re­alty model, which al­lows agents to work in­de­pen­dently with the sup­port of a na­tional busi­ness, I pay $275 per month for full-time ad­min­is­tra­tive sup­port," he said.

The agency han­dles pay­ments and main­te­nance re­quests, leav­ing the man­age­ment of the prop­erty, in­clud­ing in­spec­tions, to the agent or prop­erty man­ager.

"It's a pop­u­lar op­tion be­cause agents can use it to sup­ple­ment their sales ac­tiv­ity. It's re­ally about max­imis­ing in­come from all streams,” said Mr Tay­lor.
