What would you do with an extra pair of hands?
Viewber was started off the back of an identified service hole in a specific part of the housing market. Anyone who has ever tried to arrange a visit a property via an estate agent, at a weekend or evening, will be familiar with the issues.
As the company has grown we have started to get nudges from all sorts of other parts of the property world who recognise how useful an extra pair of hands is for almost any low complex task. The ability to buy goods and services at the click of a button is something most of us are now used to, but access via the Gig economy to a vetted national army of people happy to responsibly carry out local tasks is something new. The system polices itself via ratings and has a fast growing demographic of people happy to take on work when it suits them and not an employer.
If you look across the Atlantic almost one third of all US workers are already working in a freelance economy and by 2027 it’s reckoned over half will be taking work in the Gig economy. This method of working has attracted some criticism over the last few years with outfits like Uber testing the limits of what’s plausible. I make no comment on such companies but do feel that encouraging sensible vetted people to do work when it suits them is a different thing altogether, many Viewbers have jobs elsewhere. It also buys into the quintessentially British obsession with property.
It appears that opening doors to do viewings is the tip of the iceberg, so if you are in the property industry and have any issue you think an extra pair of trusted hands, anywhere in the UK, could help solve - it could be a click of a button away.
