Why vacation rentals?

Vacation rentals are quickly becoming major competition for traditional hotels. With online travel agencies like Airbnb, Expedia, Booking.com, and many others promoting vacation rentals, it’s easy to see that the vacation rental industry will continue to growing rapidly. 
The concept of a family or group of friends staying in a 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, 7-, or 8-bedroom home with private swimming pool (except for condominiums and townhomes) several bathrooms, full kitchen, washer/dryer, spacious living rooms, and more, simply doesn’t compare with paying for 2 or more cramped hotel rooms.
With over 60 million tourists a year visiting Florida alone, an increasing number are deciding to stay in a vacation rental, and so the demand is already fierce, and the concept is set to continue growing in popularity.


Why IPG?

Graham Greene created IPG franchising over 10 years ago. He’s incorporated his expertise of property management, rentals, real estate, and franchising into IPG franchising for our franchisees to utilize. We now have 14 IPG franchises managing over 400 vacation rentals (ranging from a 1-bedroom condo unit to an 8- bedroom villa with private pool) in the Central Florida / Disney World area.

We recently expanded into our second location: The Florida Gulf Coast in Bonita Springs, Florida. Bay Pointe Vacation Rentals manages over 100 units in the Bonita Springs area. Franchises are available in both the Central Florida and Gulf Coast locations.

What does a property manager do? 

A short-term vacation rental property manager has many duties, but many can easily be outsourced to third-party vendors so that you can set whatever work load you prefer. Even when the jobs are outsourced, there’s still room to make money (please see our proforma found below). With that being said, if you want to physically carry out the work yourself, you can retain the fees. Some of the jobs you can perform yourself include:

a. Pool cleaning (license needed - easy to obtain)
b. Property cleaning (after guest departures)
c. General maintenance (from changing a light bulb to fixing a hole in the wall)
d. Landscaping
e. Generating rentals/income for your properties' homeowners.

IPG Franchising creates an excellent opportunity for anyone to come live and work in the USA. Our franchisees have a 100% success rate for obtaining and renewing their E-2 Visas. An E-2 Visa requires that you purchase and manage a business within the USA. With IPG providing virtually instant income, a proven business model, and the opportunity to subcontract as much work as you want to, we provide an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to come live the American dream!

How we calculate these projections

The FTC's Franchise Rule permits a franchisor to provide information about the actual or potential financial performance of its franchised and/or franchisor-owned outlets, if there is a reasonable basis for the information, and if the information is included in the disclosure document. Financial performance information that differs from that included in Item 19 may be given only if: (1) a franchisor provides the actual records of an existing outlet you are considering buying; or (2) a franchisor supplements the information provided in this Item 19, for example, by providing information about possible performance at a particular location or under particular circumstances.

The tables above provide a range of projections for total gross income, variable expenses, and net income before tax and owner compensation that you may experience during your first year of operations for an IPG® Property Management Business, which commences. These projections range based on various factors, and are projected assuming you commence with 15, 25 or 35 “Management Accounts”. We also separated these projections into two tables consisting of: (1) those IPG® Property Management Businesses that use the IPG® marks and not the Bay Pointe™ marks (“IPG® Businesses”), and (2) the newer format Bay Pointe™ Vacation Rental form of IPG® Property Management Businesses (“Bay Pointe™ Businesses”). While both of them operate in substantially the same manner, the customer base, rates, and services they offer do differ slightly. Because of this difference, we report the projections separately. (See Item 1). The assumptions are derived from our experiences as well as the experience of our predecessor.

 All data is projected on an annual 12-month calendar year basis.

Each “Management Account” is one vacation rental home or condominium unit that is managed by an IPG® Business or Bay Pointe™ Business. IPG® Businesses tend to have a greater number of single family residences as compared to condominium units.
Fixed Income” items are those services for which a management contract of at least 12 months or longer is entered into with the Homeowner. “Variable Income” is income that varies based on the occupancy of the Management Accounts.

 Fixed Income includes:

 “Management Fees” assume a fee of $125.00 per month per Management Account for Bay Pointe™ Businesses and a range of $125.00 to $150.00 per month for IPG® Businesses.

 “Pool Fees” assumes at the low range the franchisee outsources pool cleaning. The high range assumes the franchisee performs the pool service themselves for up to 25 Management Accounts. For 35 Management Accounts, Pool Fees assume the franchisees outsources for all Management Accounts in excess of the 25 Management Accounts for whom the franchisee provides Pool Services.

 “Lawn Fees” assumes at the high range the franchisee performs lawn and landscaping services themselves for all Management Accounts. The low range assumes the franchisee subcontracts for lawn and landscaping services for all Management Accounts.

 “Pest Control Fees” assumes the franchisee subcontracts with a third-party for all Management Accounts. The Pest Control Fee revenues vary based on contract negotiations with third-party pest control services that maintain requisite licenses to perform pest control services.

 “Variable Income” is income that varies based on the occupancy and use of each Management Account’s rental home.
Variable Income includes:

 “Cleaning Income” is income derived from cleaning the Management Account vacation rental homes after each use. It assumes:

  • IPG® Businesses. For IPG® Businesses, we assume it may provide cleaning for up to 15 Management Accounts at an average rate of $87.50 per cleaning. But at the 25 to 35 Management Account levels, we assume the IPG® Businesses will outsource to a third-party cleaning service for an average gross margin on those cleanings of $30 per cleaning. The low range assumes 10 cleanings per year per Management Account and 25 cleanings per year per Management Account for 15 units but 20 cleanings per year per Management Account and the high range assumes 30 cleanings per year per Management Account for 25 or 35 units.


  • Bay Pointe™ Businesses. For Bay Pointe™ Businesses, we assume an average cleaning charge of $175.00 per Management Account per cleaning, with a low range
    of 10 cleanings and a high range of 20 cleanings. For Bay Pointe™ Businesses  that have 25 or more Management Accounts, we assume the Bay Pointe™ Business performs the cleanings for up to 15 Management Accounts at $175.00 per cleaning and then subcontracts to a third-party cleaning service to perform the cleaning for $90 per cleaning, yielding an average gross margin of $85 per cleaning for
    subcontracted cleanings.



 “Maintenance income” is income derived from performing routine maintenance for the Management Accounts such as fixing broken fixtures, carpet repairs, minor plumbing, etc. These fees are billed hourly at $65.00 per hour. The low range for IPG® Businesses is based on 1 billable hour per month per Management Account and the high range is based on 2 billable hours per month per Management Account. The low range for Bay Pointe™ Businesses is based on ½ billable hours per month per Management Account and the high range is based on 1 billable hour per month per Management Account.

 “Rental commission” is based on bookings per year per Management Account at a 10% commission rate. The low range for IPG® Businesses is based on 1 booking per year per Management Account at $2,000 per month and the high range is based on 6 bookings per year per Management Account at a rate of $2,500 per month. The low range for a Bay Pointe™ Business is based on 1 month of booking per year per Management Account at $3,600 per month and the high range is based on 3 months of bookings per year per property at a rate of $3,600 per month.

 “Variable expenses” are those expenses which vary by the amount of rental or usage of the property. These assumptions assume that no Management Accounts cease doing business with you or suffer periods where their properties are unable to be rented. Weather like hurricanes and tropical storms, as well as economic events, currency fluctuation, political events, or health-related events may impact vacation rentals.

 Variable expenses includes:

 “Accounting” assumes expenditures for bookkeeping, accounting and tax return

 “Bank charges” assumes the need for credit and debit card charging/processing and operating account banking fees.

 “Telephone” assumes the need for domestic and international calling.

 “Advertising” assumes website and other online publications, SEO, use of online listing sites, and other vacation rental media.

 “Vehicle expenses” assumes gas and upkeep for a vehicle, and excludes the purchase price of the vehicle.

 “Liability insurance” assumes your cost for compulsory insurance to comply with the Franchise Agreement.

System development (marketing) fund”, “Billing System Fees”, and “Royalties” are described in Item 6 and 11.

 “Printing and stationery” assumes printing of rental contracts, stationery, business cards, and the like.

 “Staffing” assumes 1 person for 25 homes and 2 persons for 35 homes.

 “Miscellaneous expenses” assumes all other minor expenses other than debt service and taxes.

 “Total gross income” is the sum of all Fixed Income and Variable Income.

 See Item 20 of this Disclosure Document. This Financial Performance Representation doesn’t include actual historical data for IPG.


Some IPG® Property Management Businesses have sold this amount. Your individual results may differ. There’s no assurance that you’ll sell as much. These projected revenues and expenses are based on our experience. But, as they ’reprojections, they don’t reflect actual operating results. A new franchisee’s individual results may differ from the projections stated in this Financial Performance Representation.


This financial performance representation for “Variable Expenses” and “Total Expenses” doesn’t reflect all projected expenses of the IPG® Property Management Businesses. Some of the expenses that are not reflected in the statement, but that a franchisee may or will incur and should take into consideration are:

  • Initial franchise payments and fees to the franchisor other than royalties (like the purchase price to acquire Management
    Accounts)
  • Licenses
  • Rent and utilities R (if you choose to have an office)
  • Cost of equipment
  • Financing costs (in addition to occupancy expense)
  • Legal expenses
  • Debt repayment


Such expenses will affect the net income and cash flow of your IPG® Property Management Business. A franchisee should consider them and evaluate their impact. The actual performance of your IPG® Property Management Business will depend on a number of factors specific to you, including your expenses for the foregoing, the degree of local community marketing you undertake, and other factors.

Your actual gross sales (Total Gross Income, Variable Income and/or Fixed Income) may differ substantially from the data presented above due to a variety of factors such as regional market variations, the demographics of an area, lifestyles of customers in the market area, location of your IPG® Property Management Business and other market characteristics as well as your business abilities and efforts. You should consult other sources, your financial advisors, and franchisees of existing IPG® Property Management Businesses in order to compare franchisees' gross sales experiences and to obtain additional information necessary to develop estimates of the cost, expenses, earnings, and profits of IPG® Property Management Businesses.
These sales, profits, or earnings aren’t based on an existing operating franchised business and should not be considered as the actual or potential sales, profits, or earnings that you’ll realize.

Written substantiation of the data used in preparing this earnings claim will be made available to you upon reasonable request. The data and assumptions used in these projections are also available upon request.

Except as provided in this Item 19, above, we don’t make any representations about a franchisee’s future financial performance or the past financial performance of company-owned or franchised outlets. We also don’t authorize our employees or representatives to make any representations either orally or in writing. If you are purchasing an existing outlet, however, we may provide you with the actual records of that outlet. If you receive any other financial performance information or projections of your future income, you should report it to the franchisor’s management by contacting Graham Greene at 770-650-5985 or by writing to PO Box 862067, Marietta, Georgia 30062, the Federal Trade Commission, and the appropriate state regulatory agencies.
