6% of new users during February were landlords, according to analysis by the livestream viewing app
An estimated 11% of consumers who enter a livestream open house viewing are looking to sell a property within the next 12 months, according to Gavl.
Analysis of more than 2,250 users carried out by the livestream viewing app revealed that 6% of new users during February were landlords.
A further 38% were potential renters, 34% were looking to purchase a property immediately and 11% were looking to purchase in the next 12 months.
Gavl requires users signing up to complete a field which best describes their current property status.
Joel Smith, chief executive of Gavl, said: Sellers and landlords looking to list a property are attending livestream viewings as part of the research process. They’ll want to see how much similar local homes are worth on the current market, as well as the property features and trends that are popular with applicants.
If a property seller or landlord has already seen how you carry out livestream viewings and interact with consumers, the agent’s job when it comes to following up and securing the business is a lot easier, he said.
Offering a livestream open house viewing is an instruction-winner in itself as landlords and vendors increasingly want to see their property marketed in this way due to the buzz it creates and its unrivalled efficiency, Smith said.
Agents can spend hours qualifying applicants before a viewing even takes place, he said.
He said if the initial qualification is not right, the chances of time-wasters turning up for viewings is high. Qualifying all interested parties at the viewing stage is hugely beneficial for agencies, reducing administration and frustration for team members. It can also save time for sellers and landlords, subsequently contributing to improved client satisfaction.
