Accompanied viewings for online & hybrid agencies

Posted on 15 Jan

No on-the-ground agents. No problem
Online/Hybrids have perhaps worked best work for those owners who are fixed on doing their own viewings. But the sheen of doing your own viewings can wear off pretty quickly leaving many needing the reassurance of having someone else to make sure buyers and tenants can get in. Many of the new hybrid and online agents simply have no national reach and usually very few actual boots on the ground.

Outsourcing to the rescue
Service levels at forward-thinking online and hybrid estate agencies is being revolutionised by third-party service providers, who are complementing core internet offerings and supporting teams who work mainly in the ether. At Viewber we understand you have to market yourself as an agent with local connections to compete with High Street agents.

Outsource partners, like Viewber, allow online and hybrid agencies to offer a really personalized, local service on a much wider geographical scale – one where face-to-face interaction is possible, wherever a property is located. At Viewber we’ve done many thousands of viewings and property inspections on behalf of agents, property managers, landlords and investors across the UK. We’ve built a network of trusted Viewbers around the country who love undertaking this work on behalf of agents – they’re dependable and genuinely passionate about their local area and perhaps even give you a competitive edge.

Of course, any third party you use should be trustworthy and be capable of suitably representing your brand, so who exactly are our Viewbers. They come from all walks of life but and include professionals looking for a change in career with bright individuals looking for a flexible approach to local work.

Meet Clare
Clare is a typical Viewber – here’s how she found herself part of the team: “I ran a successful residential sales and lettings agency in Yorkshire for 16 years with my husband, Nigel, and best friend. When Nigel passed away, I accepted an offer to sell the business and actually looked forward to relinquishing my 55-hour working week. While delighted not to have an alarm ringing every morning, I missed meeting people, especially matching purchasers with properties. Understanding your buyer's wishes and needs is so important, and it's quite a skill to get so much information from them in the course of a short viewing.”

“I read about being a Viewber in the business section of The Times and realised instantly that this was the perfect role for me. I retain the freedom and flexibility but still have a finger on the pulse of the local property market. I really enjoy the viewings and property inspections I've carried out.”
