Viewbers can access a detailed pre-viewing report

Posted on 22 Jun, 2020

Our Viewbers are able to give an enhanced viewing experience and answer more questions, thanks to the introduction of a Sprift Report on every viewing.

In its quest to deliver an enhanced viewing service to those booked on to one of our accompanied viewings, each Viewber can now access a detailed property and local area file for each property before they meet a potential buyer or tenant.

The document – known as a Sprift Report - is packed full of information and statistics, allowing every Viewber to attend an appointment with increased confidence. The report covers almost everything a home mover or investor may ask about a property and its location - building on a Viewber’s invaluable local knowledge.

The Sprift Report is divided into three sections:

- The first is a property overview, which features key facts including council tax charges, broadband speeds, mobile phone coverage and flood risk, together with a gallery of images, the floorplan and the EPC certificate.

- The second section centres on the local area, detailing the nearest transport connections and local schools, shown with their Ofsted rating.

- The local property market makes up the third section, outlining house price statistics for the postcode the viewed property is in.

“We know our Viewbers like working their local areas as they share their neighbourhood insights and knowledge with potential home movers. By reading the Sprift Report before they accompany a viewing they can impart a great deal more property knowledge too,” says Viewber’s Ed Mead.

“We want our Viewbers to offer the most comprehensive service possible which means being able to answer questions about more property-specific matters during an appointment. Having time to read up on broadband speeds, council tax bands and the EPC rating will create that more comprehensive experience,” says Ed, “and they can take the report with them – on paper or digitally – which adds an extra degree of professionalism.”

The Sprift Report forms part of a broadening training and knowledge scheme available to new and existing Viewbers. The Viewber Training Academy was launched earlier in 2020, and provides Viewbers with help and advice designed specifically around viewings and inspections.

The Sprift Report joins a detailed training manual, relevant foundation courses, an online FAQ section, a well populated video library, a ‘hands-on’ HQ team and a friendly Viewber Community Facebook group.
