Crazy busy – Can’t get it all done? If so, you’re not alone. A 2014 Agent Boost poll of Real Estate Agents indicated that one of the top challenges Agents are facing is proper time management. Some of the time management mistakes that Agents make are “failure to delegate tasks, busyness and not business and over-scheduling.” All of us now and then misuse our time but there are a few ways to help make the most of your time and increase your profitability:
- Learn to delegate the busy work to a Real Estate Virtual Assistant
When you’re running a business, you can’t possibly do it all – delegate the busy work to someone else. You can leverage a Real Estate Virtual Assistant to complete routine tasks. With today’s technology, they can be just as productive as an in-house assistant, for a fraction of the cost. You don’t even have to worry about managing employee’s benefits, taxes or insurance because when you get a real estate trained Virtual Assistant from MyOutDesk, those are included in the flat hourly rate, less than nine dollars an hour.
- Focus on what is the best use of your time, activities that increase your bottom line
Once you hire your Real Estate Virtual Assistant, time block the most valuable activities for yourself: networking, spending time with buyers/sellers, negotiating price/offers, etc. Schedule the busy work for your Virtual Assistants: scheduling appointments, listing and database management, lead generation, transaction coordination, cold calling, lead follow-up calls, etc.
- Plan for the unexpected, make time for last minute meetings, negotiations, etc.
Have your Real Estate Virtual Assistant only time block you for three quarters of your week, leaving the other quarter of your work week to have open for the flexibility to address anything that comes up unexpected. If you don’t allow time for unexpected meetings, calls, paperwork, etc. you could end up overwhelmed.
