4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis
4.1 Economic Outlook
This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the property management industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is in recession. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. Many economists expect that this recession will continue until mid-2010, at which point the economy will begin a prolonged recovery period.
4.2 Industry Analysis
Residential property management in the United States is $22 billion dollar per year industry. These businesses aggregately employ more than 250,000 people and provide gross annual payrolls exceeding $10 billion dollars. The growth rate of this industry has been tremendous in the last ten years as housing prices and the number of real estate investors in the housing market has increased three fold during this time. Management expects that as the market for housing continues to slow, the number of agents operating within the industry will begin to decrease. Revenues generated by these businesses have increased more than 65% in the last five years, while the number of new establishments entering the market has grown 31%. However, unlike real estate brokerages, property management firms tend to operate with a greater level of economic stability as the fees generated from the management of rental properties are recurring. As such, the Property Management Firm will be able to remain profitable despite the current housing market situation.
4.3 Customer Profile
In this section of the analysis, you should describe the type of customer you are seeking to acquire. These traits include income size, type of business/occupation; how far away from your business is to your customer, and what the customer is looking for. In this section, you can also put demographic information about your target market including population size, income demographics, level of education, etc.
4.4 Competitive Analysis
This is one of the sections of the business plan that you must write completely on your own. The key to writing a strong competitive analysis is that you do your research on the local competition. Find out who your competitors are by searching online directories and searching in your local Yellow Pages. If there are a number of competitors in the same industry (meaning that it is not feasible to describe each one) then showcase the number of businesses that compete with you, and why your business will provide customers with service/products that are of better quality or less expensive than your competition.
5.0 Marketing Plan
The Property Management Firm intends to maintain an extensive marketing campaign that will ensure maximum visibility for the business in its targeted market. Below is an overview of the marketing strategies and objectives of the Company.
5.1 Marketing Objectives
• Establish relationships with real estate brokerages within the targeted market.
• Implement a local campaign with the Company’s targeted market via the use of flyers, local newspaper advertisements, and word of mouth advertising.
• Develop an online presence by developing a website and placing the Company’s name and contact information with online directories.
5.2 Marketing Strategies
Mr. Doe intends on using a number of marketing strategies that will allow the Property Management Firm to easily homeowners (who are seeking to rent their homes) and real estate investors within the target market. These strategies include traditional print advertisements and ads placed on search engines on the Internet. Below is a description of how the business intends to market its services to the general public. The Property Management Firm will also use an internet based strategy. This is very important as many people seeking local services, such as property managers, now the Internet to conduct their preliminary searches. Mr. Doe will register the Property Management Firm with online portals so that potential customers can easily reach the business. The Company will also develop its own online website showcasing the business’ operations, its pricing information, contact information, and Mr. Doe’s experience and a property manager. Finally, the Company will develop referral relationships with real estate brokerages within the target market that do not have property management operations. The company will provide revenue shares with local real estate brokerages that provide the business with ongoing referrals (of real estate investors) that are seeking property management services.
In this section, describe the pricing of your services and products. You should provide as much information as possible about your pricing as possible in this section. However, if you have hundreds of items, condense your product list categorically. This section of the business plan should not span more than 1 page.

• The Owner will acquire $100,000 of debt funds to develop the business.
• The loan will have a 10 year term with a 9% interest rate.
