Welcome to Create-A-Plan
"A New and Improved Create A Plan Coming in December 2014"
Real Estate Business Planning For Real Estate Professionals
Create A Plan is the leading real estate business planning system for owners, brokers, managers and agents.
Do not confuse business planning with goal setting. Anyone in real estate can set goals, but professional owners, brokers, managers and agents build real plans. Business planning is the road map that calculates how many transactions you must close, what your total overhead cost per transaction is and how many activities you must complete to meet your income goal.
Most real estate professionals recognize that working in real estate brokerage is a business, not a hobby. But few apply basic business principles to their real estate business. Even Agents and Brokers who value setting goals and defining specific objectives for their business often lack the time and expertise to develop a comprehensive budget and business plan.
What Plan is right for Your Real Estate Business?
There are three different versions of the Create A Plan Business Planning Tool: Silver, Gold and Platinum. Each version of our award winning business planning software is designed to solve the needs of a specific component in the real estate industry. Create A Plan believes that no one solution fits everyone's needs hence; "There is a plan for every job."
The Silver Business Plan version is designed specifically for Real Estate Agents and Sales Associates. Create A Plan Silver will focus your business on the activities needed to meet your income goal. Agents, Sales Associates and Realtors can quickly and easily make a business plan and follow the weekly reminders to achieve their income goal.

The Gold version is ideal for brokerage offices that play an integral role in the success and development of their agents and sales associates. The Gold version works in conjunction with the Silver version to provide Managers and Brokers with the tools and information to help build careers.

Additionally, Platinum has powerful built-in scenarios runners to see the effects of the changing market.
What are Real Estate Business Plans?
In summary, real estate business plans outline and evaluate all aspects of your real estate business venture and provides you a specific roadmap and process on how to achieve your goals. A good business plan starts with your "Wish List" i.e. how much you wish to earn and then guides you through the process of examining the key aspects of generating positive income: Revenue, Expenses and Business Development.

Real Estate Business Planning for Agents
“Real estate agents are great at setting goals but weak at getting there,” Allen Wright of CreateAPlan said. “Agents need a roadmap that will guide them towards their goal otherwise the majority unfortunately fail,” he said. Thanks to the Internet, CreateAPlan, the only business planning system specifically designed to create business plans for real estate agents and brokers, now makes business planning as easy as email. Real estate business planning is no longer a time consuming paper driven exercise but a quick easy web-based process.
CreateAPlan can in less than 30 minutes provide any agent with their own personalized real estate business plan that identifies, the number of required transaction needed, a weekly To-Do list for what must be accomplished in order to meet the user’s income goal, a five-year projection on revenue and expenses, and a calculation of the overhead per transaction. Since launching the business planning software two years ago the company has already helped thousands of real estate agents increase their productivity and become more successful.
Business planning should however not be a winning strategy of a few elite agents,” says best selling author and RealtyU® CEO, Stefan Swanepoel, “but a cornerstone of every agent’s business.” The importance of planning and drive of the real estate brokerage industry to become more professional has resulted in CreateAPlan partnering with RealtyU®, the nation’s largest career network of real estate schools and trainers in the country, to roll this service out to all REALTORS®.
