No one likes to move home. It’s a fact of life.
A study, published in 2014 by EstatesDirect.com, interviewed 2,000 people to establish why dealing with property is considered so distressing – causing more anxiety than bankruptcy, divorce and the death of a family member. Shocking, but sadly true.
Slow solicitors, endless phone calls, the sums of money and risk involved, not to mention all the documentation to complete. It goes on and on. It should be a happy occasion, but instead, it is a disruption of your routine and, therefore, a stressful experience.
We believe there’s a better way.
There is an opportunity for letting and estate agents to remove some of these barriers, and at least miminise the others, which make dealing in property so traumatic.
Pack Up Your Troubles
By digitising the process of sending and signing documents involved in a property transaction, they become automated and thus streamlined; making it easier for your tenants and landlords to do business with you and each other.
After all, the digitally empowered world we live in requires digitally enabled letting and estate agents.
This is the definitive call to action when it comes to leading the property industry into a new era. How can we make the experience of buying, selling, letting and leasing a home better? We need the tools to tackle those life-changing moments and working with paper only inhibits these valuable opportunities.
