We are launching a new Exclusive Dealer Territory Initiative. Vintage Cottages and Tiny Houses is growing and moving toward developing exclusive dealership opportunities in 6 - 7 key regional cities and regions on the West Coast. We are a wholesale artisan builder from Oregon that does not want to suffer through the time and expense of trying to open our own expensive showrooms and hiring employees, etc. Instead, we are looking for just one key person or company in your area that would enjoy owning a thriving low overhead, low cost business in this fun, fulfilling and booming industry. We are looking for a dealer that can serve most of the Bay Area, north into wine country.
We offer turn key backyard cottages and tiny house solutions directly to buyers at below wholesale prices. Our market price and design niche is relatively simple and will be available to you : As a dealer, you will be able to deliver a far more attractive & eclectic looking cottage house, having a conservative market value of $45,000 - $60,000, directly to buyers at a price of $21,000 - $24,000.
This is not an investment opportunity or employment situation. You will be your own boss. Your success will depend on how diligent and hard working you are. For each one of our regions that we are targeting, we anticipate 3 - 6 sales a month, with the local dealer earning $4,000 - $6,000 profit from each cottage sale. This reflects a very conservative but healthy 20% - 25% gross profit margin earned by the local Dealer per sale.
We want to be able to be a bit picky about who is selected for a regional dealership and so we are not charging or requiring huge up front franchise type fees or costs. As you probably know, a typical franchise business can easily cost you $200,000 + just for the right to be in business. However, we have decided not to go that route and to really attempt to develop a family of dealers that all enjoy a great income while doing what you are passionate about. With that being said, you must be financially strong enough (without loans or debt) to be able to set up one impressive display model at a location in your area that we approve. We can normally help you secure a location for free. This needs to be at a commercial location that has an already existing business open 6 - 7 days a week.
We project your business launch costs will be between $18,000 - $20,000.
Our goal is that this business would be a low overhead, low risk business for you, requiring no employees, no expensive showrooms or offices, and no expensive advertising budgets. It can be developed as a one person operation, supported by a local independent 1 - 2 man contractor "finish" crew that will complete the cottage interiors at a fixed price for you as you sell them. Our training helps you set this all up from your own website, to sales materials, to step by step sales training. It is very helpful for you to have some construction experience and/or interior design experience. The Dealer is normally not the person who does the interior completion (although if you have the skills you can earn additional $ doing this) , but you must know enough to be able to inspect and assure that the interior work is done right for your cottage buyers.
