Estate agents who outsource their viewing services… will have best chance of success in 2017.

One of the most significant business trends in 2017 is likely to be outsourcing. And, with estate agents increasingly expected to do more with less, this makes sense. Just think about it, with time the one thing none of us has in excess, why would you waste yours on mundane and unproductive tasks, when you could be getting on with the more important and lucrative aspects of estate agency instead?

It_s no wonder, therefore, that the value of property marketing outsourcing is catching on. With more and more estate agents looking to partner with a tried and trusted expert to ensure that their marketing efforts deliver. Indeed, with the speed of technological advancements showing no sign of slowing down, engaging with a property marketing expert could be the only way for your estate agency business to keep up with current and emerging marketing best-practices and tools; and ensure your long-term survival.

At Houseviz, we predict that viewing services, in particular, will see a significant increase in uptake over the next 12 months and beyond; as estate agents attempt to maximise their resources and achieve bang for buck in an increasingly competitive and challenging marketplace.

How can outsourced viewing services benefit estate agents?

We all know that buying a property is an emotional decision as much as a financial one. Even the most talented salesperson isn_t going to talk a prospective buyer into making an offer if they_ve decided the home isn_t for them. With that in mind, it doesn_t make sense for you to waste your time showing a plethora of viewers around each and every property. However, relying on vendors to show people their homes is neither feasible nor recommended; so first and foremost, hiring an expert to look after viewings will free up your valuable time.

Of course, you could hire a junior member of staff to do this, and let your more senior employees concentrate on generating business and sales. But in a volatile and seasonal market, outsourcing is more cost-effective than employing someone to perform these tasks. Especially when you take training, sick pay, holiday cover, pension contributions, and National Insurance into consideration. Equally important is the risk to reputations should the person doing the viewings not have the necessary skills.

But more than this, outsourcing also makes financial sense; removing the hassle from the shoulders of estate agents and letting you get on with the important business of closing and winning instructions. So, in 2017, the question estate agents should be asking themselves when it comes to property marketing outsourcing isn_t _can we afford to?_, but _can we afford not to?_
