Once the franchisee has built a portfolio of apartments the rentals will start generating commissions and agency fees. The franchisee has full control over the rental prices. Globexs does not get involved in the property management services of entry/exit/cleaning. These activities are organized by the franchisee who gets to keep all the profit.
