Any serious-minded realtor knows there are too many tasks to handle. So, to make your life simpler and easier, it is best to outsource most of those tasks and focus on the core ones. Whether you are part of a big real estate agency or just managing your own real estate firm, outsourcing tasks is the best thing to do.
The thing is, you are burdened with many loads such as meeting with new clients and generating listings. So, why not outsource the administrative tasks in particular, so that you can free up quality time to focus on lead generation?
It is a well-known fact that outsourcing is a hot topic in the business arena, yet some people do not pay quality attention to it.
A real estate agent should reduce overhead costs in order to grow profits. You would be better off choosing a Philippines outsourcing partner. The juicy part is; for less than a thousand dollars, you can hire an offshore real estate vir6tual assistant who will gladly work for 160 hours in a month.
You may consider this wrong and “taking advantage” of these offshore workers. But, you should bear in mind that that the wages that are acceptable in some parts of the world are far below compared to the wages accepted here in the US. Believe me; these workers are really excited to earn $997 per month in a country where the average person earns below $500! So it will be even wrong to say you are taking advantage of them., they will be very happy to work with you and will be totally committed to their duties.
As a realtor, here are some tasks you can outsource:
• Posting property listings to social media websites
• Returning e-mails
• Updating Facebook page
• Conduct research
• Tweeting new property listings
• Posting blog entries and ads etc.
You do not have to outsource your company’s financial tasks, especially if it contains a buyer or seller’s financial information – quite frankly, it is not ethical. Some clients will be quite upset if they found out that their real estate agent is outsourcing their administrative tasks and their financial information is traveling across the globe and back.
So, don’t just sit back in your office and practically kill yourself with replying to emails, calling clients, generating leads, finding listings – with no one to assist you! Instead, hire an offshore virtual assistant with a click of the button at a far lower price than the virtual assistants in your country. In fact, the price is so mouth-watering and will surely wow you!
So, get to your computer right away and find a virtual assistant in an offshore outsourcing location.
