Hi there,
Get to grips with the Property Practitioners Act (PPA)
From 1 February 2022, the PPA is in full effect. Besides regulating property practitioners, it’s going to truly transform the real estate agency sector. There are changes to how you disclose property defects, the certificates you need, to changes in agent training.
Communicating these changes to your clients and stakeholders will be of utmost importance. Use your marketing to show how you’re adapting — your news articles, web sliders, emails, and email signatures will come in handy for this.
Let’s get going,
Mark Butress
CEO of Prop Data
73.8% of property practitioners say virtual viewings and 3D tours are here to stay.
Your move: Your clients are hungry for information and virtual tours can provide this. With platforms like EyeSpy360 and Prop Data’s recent vertical video platform partner Holofy, you need just a mobile phone to create these in minutes.
