Here is your September support!
The silly season is almost over and we’re heading in to ‘serious September’, when holidays become hazy memories, schools return and the home moving fraternity set their sights on a completion before Christmas.
According to phone answering and live chat service provider, Moneypenny, Tuesday 27th August 2019 could be agents’ busiest day of the year in terms of calls and online enquiries. The claims are based on its prior research that showed Tuesdays after Bank Holiday Mondays in 2018 were around 10% busier than normal days – with the day after August Bank Holiday the most active.
Agents across the country are hoping the traditional September spike in activity is replicated in the coming days, with everyone being kept busy by a raft of new instructions and a diary full of viewing requests. The post Bank Holiday boom, however, can coincide with staff annual leave, leaving departments short staffed.
Viewber is here to give agents the support they need in late summer, September and beyond. No branch need miss a viewing opportunity or say no to an accompanied visit, so we have created a service that complements what agents already offer. Our local, vetted Viewbers can easily be booked with 24 hour's notice – the perfect solution when movers are scrambling to see any new-to-market instructions and there aren’t enough staff.
Our partnership with agents allows them to concentrate on the most important tasks, this will be attending valuations, spending time in the office preparing new listings, negotiating on behalf of clients and progressing transactions.
The biggest upside to partnering with us is the availability of Viewbers – a crucial plus point when it’s proven that buyers and tenants will request evening and weekend visits. We work with agents so slots in their diaries extend well into the evening and over the entire weekend - a key feature of our Viewbers is their readiness to accommodate out-of-hours requests.
Start a relationship with Viewber and say ‘yes’ to that accompanied viewing at 7pm on a Tuesday or 3pm on a Sunday. Our Viewbers are happy to work when your office is shut, when your staff need to be elsewhere or when you’ve simply run out of manpower to accompany every viewing. As well as a Viewber who is local to the property you are marketing, agents will get a follow-up report in their Viewber dashboard within hours of the visit concluding.
Don’t forget, Viewber isn’t just for Bank Holidays – it’s for every day of the week, 365 days a year. Why not give us a try?
