UKAA News Buzz 01/09/2020: Bank holiday blues? On-demand National workforce at your fingertips


Welcome to the Viewber sponsored  UKAA News Buzz packed with all the latest BTR news! 

August Bank Holiday traditionally signals the start of your busiest period, and this year manning and maintaining your developments and standards is even tougher.

Viewber was founded in 2016 and gives anyone in the property industry access to many thousands of trained, vetted and rated viewing and inspection assistants, anywhere in the UK at any time, via an intuitive online platform. National Service – Local People!
With over 125,000 appointments carried out for thousands of UK clients, Viewber helps everyone: agents, property managers, build to rent operators, landlords, investors, developers and more, to increase their geographical reach, carry out service out of hours appointments or cover busy periods and garner better reviews. Ultimately this flows through to an increased bottom line and turns what used to be a fixed cost into a variable one.

Enjoy the week ahead everyone!
