Made Snappy - Letting Agents

How To Survive 2020

It's been an unprecedented start to the year. With the country in lockdown and move ins restricted, now is the time to look at the systems in your business.

Lots more agents have been looking into ways of doing virtual viewings, from videos to 3D virtual tours. Even after lockdown lifts, we may still need to social distance for many months before things go back to normal.

Not every agent will make it through this time. When lockdown lifts, how are you going to differentiate yourself from your competitors?

In normal times, 3D tours are a proven way of getting more business. It's an easy way to differentiate your business, and is something most of your competitors won't have.

24/7 Open House

You know as well as anyone else that more viewings means more lets.

You also know how much of a pain it is to organise viewings. Sometimes tenants want to view at times when you are busy, or at unsociable times.

Getting access for viewings can sometimes be just as difficult when there are tenants in the property.

On top of all this, social distancing will make viewings even harder.

Now imagine if tenants could walk around one of these 3D tours on your portal listings:

The Numbers Speak For Themselves

We did a study based on Rightmove listings in November 2019.

We analysed every property for rent in the UK, and this is what we found.

15.5

Average Number of Listings of
Agents Who Use Virtual Tours

7.7

Average Number of Listings of
Agents Who Don't Use Virtual Tours

The agents that use 3D Tours on their properties have on average 101% more listings.

Other Benefits

There are numerous other benefits to doing 3D tours for your business.

1

Rent properties with less viewings. The virtual tours reduce wasted viewings with people who are window shopping or unsuitable for the property.

2

Less second viewings. There's no need to go to the property to show parents, grandparents, aunts, second cousins...

3

Better online presence. When you make a virtual tour on our platform, we also provide you with code to copy and paste into your website.

4

Reduced admin work. Staff can see a property without visiting, which helps when new staff do viewings or arrange repairs on existing properties.

How Easy Are They?

There's no point doing virtual tours if they add hours to your workload, they are expensive, or they are too complicated for your staff to manage.

A typical house will only take 20-30 minutes to build. It's so easy that even the most technology challenged individuals can make them.

Have a quick look at the process and you will see how simple it is:

FAQ

How Long Do Tours Take To Do?

On a small property such as a 2 bedroom house, you could be done in less than 15 - 20 minutes excluding travelling.

Larger properties can take 20 - 40 minutes. The more you do of them, the faster you become.

Will My Staff Be Able To Do Them?

You don't need any photography experience. It is easy to learn how to do the tours. We provide a full set of training videos which cover everything from connecting to the camera to branding the tours.

Do I need a website to host the tours?

You don't need a website to host anything. The technology behind the tours is complicated, and we take care of all of that for you. When you build a tour and make it public, you will get a link that you can share. On the tour page, you can also get some code to show the tour in your website.

Can I put this on Rightmove or Zoopla?

Yes. We give you a link for each tour. You can add it to an advert by going to the Media page, adding a virtual tour, and using the link we have given you.
