It’s time to make hay with Viewber!

Posted on 17 Feb, 2020

Agents are going from ‘zero to hero’ as confidence comes back to the property market. Try Viewber during your busiest periods, no minimum spend or booking constraints to prevent you testing the waters.

Unless you have been hiding under a rock (and with the coronavirus and Love Island back on our TV screens, who could blame you) you’ll know that the UK property market has started to turn a corner after three + rather subdued years. People are piling back after months of sitting on the fence. Now our agent partners are telling us they’re busier than ever (the rate they are booking our Viewbers shows us!) but are short staffed.

This is all mostly because we are emerging from political stalemate with growing confidence and positivity. The Boris Bounce is being felt across the country, Brexit is official and interest rates remain low, perhaps dropping even further if you read the Bank of England’s meeting minutes, which is great for mortgages.

This triple whammy of good news has already boosted activity, with both Rightmove and OnTheMarket recording busiest ever months and record traffic in January 2020. Agents too are noticing a surge of enquires – an increase in emails and calls to book viewings and arrange mortgage appointments.

It is times like this – perhaps if you have streamlined your operations and slimmed down your workforce during leaner months – when agents find their resources strained. A sudden influx of activity exposes teams who are just ‘getting by’ – aspects that can be compounded by staff illness or annual leave. Viewber, however, realizes that the property market is fickle and agents won’t want to jeopardize budgets by adding more fixed overheads. Thankfully there really is no need to panic or recruit more staff.

We offer our service to agents without upper or lower limits, so they can dip into our accompanied viewing and inspection resource when they really need it. There is no minimum spend, no requirement to meet a target of 10 bookings a month and no maximum number of times we can be called upon.

We are a true ‘no strings attached’ support partner – use us once a month, once a week or once a day – it doesn’t make a difference. And don’t worry, we won’t hound you if you don’t book a Viewber for three months as we understand business has its peaks and troughs! We’ll always be here with UK-wide, seven-day-a-week availability for when your viewings diary is at bursting point and you could do with another pair of hands.

And if you think it is busy now, hold on tight! There is a Budget on the horizon (11th March 2020) and the announcement is shrouded in fevered speculation that there could be a stamp duty reform on the cards, with the potential for it to become cheaper to move home.

Start a conversation with Viewber today so you are prepared for a terrific property market in 2020.
