PropTech service claims agents win ‘competitive edge’ thanks to data

A PropTech firm claims agents will win a “competitive edge” through the data it provides via its platform.

Sprift says its interactive reports are designed to better inform landlords and prospective tenants, thus giving agents an advantage.

The reports create a ‘microsite’ for each property, containing relevant lettings data including a calculator for working out yield, local licensing information, and details on EPC, council tax and local schools performance. Photos, floorplans, satellite images and street views can be zoomed in and out of, while market intelligence and property information is updated in real-time.

The supplier cites testimonials from Leaders Roman Group and Richard James Estate Agent in support, while Sprift chief executive Matt Gilpin adds: “These first-to-market reports will put agents in an enviable position when it comes to supporting and working with landlords and – in turn – their tenants.

“For landlords, they can quickly see and compare rental yields, all relevant property detail and manage their portfolio. For tenants, the interactive reports create a full and true picture about the property they are researching, in order to help support their decision.”

Since 2016 Sprift has produced nearly 500,000 reports for clients and claims to have saved them over £19.5m in research hours.
