Overcoming Time Restraints with Your Real Estate Business

Aug 17, 2007
You arrive at the office before business hours, and sit right down at your desk with the stack of paperwork left over from the night before. For the rest of the day you are faxing clients and agents alike, putting together lists of houses that seem ideal for your clients, attending open houses, and shoeing homes. You understand that time is money and you spend your time even more carefully than your hard-earned pay. What you may not understand is that you are over-spending a little when it comes to your time at work.

You know that your time is valuable, but you don't take advantage of the opportunities that present themselves to use your time more wisely. Instead of spending that un-renewable resource on things that could be handled by a clerk of some sort, you spend your time on tasks that are beneath you. Just think how much more time you would have to seek out clients and address their needs if you didn't have to file, fax, copy, or double-check signatures all day! These mundane tasks suitable referred to as 'low payoff activities' can be carried out by a virtual assistant. Add up the hours you spend on these tasks and ask yourself if the time you save isn't worth it.

If you are concerned about the problems of dealing with hiring a secretary or an assistant, do not fear. Outsourcing the work to a virtual assistant is fast and easy, and a reliable assistant can usually be found with a few calls to fellow agents to ask for a bit of advice. Virtual Assistants (VAs) that specialize in the real estate industry know the business of real estate, and can aide in maintaining, organizing, data entry, designing, and managing all of your routine marketing and administrative tasks. Your mundane work gets done while you bring in the business and seal the deals.

While it may seem like a lot of work to find a virtual assistant to help you with the mountains of paperwork that litter your life, the pay-off is worth any time spent. Finding yourself a reliable VA can benefit you both in time, and as another set of eyes ready to catch whatever problems you might not have noticed. The next time you rise before the sun to dig in to a pile of papers, ask yourself what you could be doing instead. The answer is probably a lot more appealing and possibly a lot more lucrative as well. :)
