Stop Wasting Your Time And Money
Why you should be outsourcing to build your real estate business every day.
In real estate, perhaps more than in any other business, time really is money. You need to be spending your time meeting clients, closing deals, and adding more to your marketing. You don’t need to be using your time answering calls or chasing dead end leads. If time is money, why are you wasting so much of it? Imagine if you could have just one more hour per day to use exactly how you see fit.
The facts are clear. As a real estate expert you should be providing your expertise to your current and potential clients every hour of the working day. If you’re spending your time doing everyday tasks instead, you are wasting all that opportunity and all that potential revenue.
One answer to this problem is to find yourself assistants. Assistants will take some of those humdrum, every day routine tasks that eat up your time, and allow you to get on with the real work, the real business. But what if you don’t have the budget for an assistant? There is another option, and that option is OUTSOURCING.
Outsourcing simply means finding specialists who can do work for you at a fraction of the cost of you doing it yourself. These specialists can answer phone calls, carry out paperwork, and just about every other administrative task you may have. In a nutshell, you should be outsourcing all the “busy” work and taking yourself “out of the equation” as much as possible, so you can focus on what’s important: building a self-sustaining business that will lead to your ultimate vacation – EARLY RETIREMENT.
Here are 5 incredibly important reasons why you should start outsourcing RIGHT NOW.
1. Executing the “Money Tasks”
Outsourcing frees up your time so you can get out there and make money. These ‘money tasks’, such as meeting with clients, holding an open house, networking, generating new leads, negotiating deals and collecting commissions, are all tasks that you should be performing on a regular basis. Outsourcing your admin work will allow you to concentrate on these tasks, and these tasks alone.
2. Building Your Trust Networks
Outsourcing affords you more time to focus on your clients and build up trust networks. This means building relationships with prospects and customers so that they think of you and your real estate expertise when they want to buy a house or sell a house. In addition to this, through networking, your name is the first one that comes to customer’s lips when their friends and associates need a realtor.

3. Focusing On The Big Picture
Outsourcing also allows you to build a strategy as a realtor. You’ll be able to focus on the bigger picture for your work rather than the small details. Too many realtors get caught up in small things, like tweeting and managing their social network profiles, rather than going out and making money with clients. Both these two things are important but only one needs you to be there physically. An assistant can tweet on your behalf while you go out and make money.

4. Achieving Scalability
You can also make your business more scalable if you have assistance from outsourcing. When things get really busy do you have the capacity to take on all the new business that comes your way? You can’t afford to lose deals simply because you’re too busy doing something else. Get all your admin work outsourced and you’ll be ready when the real money comes in.
5. Staying Competitive
Finally, outsourcing has now become one of the biggest growth areas in the industry. It is getting bigger too, and your competition is taking advantage of it. Simply put, to stay ahead of the curve, you need to be outsourcing too.
