Hybrid estate agents survived the lockdown better, claims Yopa boss

first_imgYopa chairman Grenville Turner has said that hybrid estate agents have had an advantage over traditional agents during the lockdown and have been able to attract more listings.In comments made to The Negotiator, he says that although he appreciates that many high street agents chose to shut up shop during the pandemic, the hybrid model Yopa employs meant it continued winning instructions and adding properties to the market.“What has become evident is that those of us that operate more virtually via technology and with a self-employed estate agent model, have probably had an advantage during this [lockdown] period,” he says.“We have an established way of working that has been more able to adapt and cope with the restrictions of the pandemic.“From that point of view you can say that in these types of situations  our model is more resilient.”Estate agentsGrenville says that, like its competitor Purplebricks, Yopa’s technology enabled vendors to take their own photographs and videos and therefore enabled their properties to be added to the portals despite Coronavirus.“We may have been No.2 among all estate agents in recent months overall but we recognise a lot of traditional agents have shut up shop during the crisis so comparisons are a little unfair,” he adds.Last week Yopa revealed that that the company is now not far away from profitability and that its overall progress is ahead of schedule and that it will soon be cash generative.Yopa also paid its 130 or so self-employed local agents to keep on working through the crisis to dissuade them from furloughing themselves or their staff.grenville turner Purplebricks hybrid estate agents YOPA June 22, 2020Nigel Lewis3 commentsMurray Lee, Dreamview Estates Dreamview Estates 22nd June 2020 at 8:46 amUTTER NONSENSE !We attracted enough instructions during lockdown except, wisely, we recommended our clients to wait to complete the listingsThere was no point in marketing occupied sale properties during the period as viewings were impossible in general. And Video views just dont do it for sellingOn vacant rental properties we continued listings and used videos which, on agreement of rental, were accepted as subject to final viewing when feasibleI love this statement“Last week Yopa revealed that that the company is now not far away from profitability”LOL theres a good place to be!We are STILL profitable and have been throughout the 8 years of our existenceSorry, Hybrid is not the way nor have we noticed much presence of Yopa or PBs in our areas. Obviously our local clients prefer our way of business!Traditional still is, and will be more so now and moving forwardYou get what you pay for, and you dont pay us ANYTHING unless you get results!Log in to Replymark flynn, Julian Marks Julian Marks 22nd June 2020 at 8:44 amWhat a load of nonsense.

COVID-19: Govt claims more than half of country at low risk of infection

first_img“Hospital availability has also increased, from 132 referral hospitals [three months ago] to 800 referral hospitals in all 34 provinces,” Wiku said.  The country increased its rate of testing between May and June, when 220 laboratories tested nearly 20,000 samples a day.

As of Sunday, 38 cities or regencies in 19 provinces had recorded zero cases of COVID-19 in the last four weeks.However, 57 cities or regencies are categorized as red zones (high-risk areas), while 157 areas are orange zones (medium-risk). The number of red zones increased from 51 to 57 between June 14 and 21.“The local administrations are the key actors of reporting and mitigating COVID-19 in their jurisdictions,” said Dewi Nur Aisyah, an epidemiologist on the national task force’s team of experts.President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo said he appreciated local leaders and regional task forces that managed to contain the virus.“With an integrated information system, we can roll out policies that are based on data and science,” he said.Topics : The government has claimed that almost 60 percent of the country is either at low risk of COVID-19 infection or has zero cases.According to the chief of the national COVID-19 task force expert staff, Wiku Adisasmito, 188 regions in Indonesia are classified as yellow zones (places where there is a low risk of infection), while 112 are green zones (regions where there are zero confirmed cases).He explained that the percentage of regions included in yellow or green zones had been consistently increasing, from 46.7 percent to 58.3 percent between May 31 and June 21, though the number decreased once to 44.3 percent on June 7. “Some businesses [in those regions] have reopened,” Wiku said in a virtual press briefing from the State Palace on Wednesday.He claimed that Indonesia’s economic and public health situation was otherwise “not really worse” compared to other countries thanks to the policies implemented by the government. Read also: Indonesia records new daily highs in cases during transition to ‘new normal’In the last three months, there was an increase in the number of hospitals that handed over reports of COVID-19 cases to the national task force, from 250 in the early days of the outbreak to 1,687 thus far.last_img read more
