Outsourcing has become a practice that many companies and businesses have adopted over the past few years. Many large, fortune 500 companies have taken to outsourcing job roles such as customer support, sales and much more. As options such as hiring home-based professionals, such as Virtual Assistants, have become available, many small to mid-scale businesses have followed suit.
Real Estate Virtual Assistants have become increasingly popular and in demand. Being an industry whose processes entail a lot of paperwork and other non-revenue productive tasks that can hamper any business owner, many have realized that outsourcing is an efficient and affordable way to delegate this work to gain leverage and time to focus on revenue producing activities that only they can do.
A MyOutDesk Real Estate Virtual Assistant is trained in the basics of real estate and also on general systems and tasks. Since every Real Estate business is different, just like any in-house employee, your Virtual Assistant will need additional training to adapt to your specific business set-up. It is essential to keep on mind though, that pretty much anything an in-house employee can do, a Real Estate Virtual Assistant can do as well.

Numerous studies over the past few years show that home-based employees tend to be more productive because they spend less time shuffling around the office doing things that are unrelated to work. Furthermore, hiring a Virtual assistant saves you a lot of money on overhead costs such as office space, equipment, benefits, etc.
It all begins with how you spend your day. Ask yourself, how long it takes to do specific tasks that are necessary but are not necessarily things that you have to do personally. From there add up how long it takes in a day, then a week, then tally it up to a year. That number you come up with is the time you could spend making more contacts, building relationships, having conversations, expanding your network and growing your business!
