Four Things That A Real Estate Virtual Assistant Can Do for You

by Kristen White Blogger
If you are running a local real estate business, there are many different duties that you likely cannot keep up with. It feels just like customer service in the sense that you have to manage multiple different things at once in an ongoing cycle to sell property to home or property buyers.

You likely do not have time or the willpower to undertake additional tasks outside the ones you know how to do or enjoy doing, and that is okay. You can instead opt to hire a virtual executive assistant for all the jobs you don’t have the time to do. A virtual assistant will cost significantly less than hiring a new employee and can work on a flexible schedule so that they can work at times even when you aren’t. It’s a great option for when you do not want to give your staff more duties and want them to continue to work as productively as possible.

With that said, here are some common tasks that you can give to your real estate virtual assistant:

Upload/Update Property Listings

Property listings aren’t difficult to create on real estate websites, but they can be quite boring and tedious. If you find that you would rather do something else that upload property listings, you can give this job to your real estate virtual assistant. For each listing, you will have to give your assistant information such as address, house type, images, price, and additional information, so they can create a complete listing for each property.

Schedule Appointments

Sometimes, you might not even be available to pick up the phone and talk with potential home buyers, or even respond to emails or text messages. You either are and prefer to be meeting with home buyers in person and give them tours to vacant homes. Thankfully, a virtual assistant can answer your phone and talk with clients on your behalf. From there, they can set up appointments to see you and refer to your schedule for the next free time available. When appointments are looming, your virtual assistants can send reminder emails or phone calls to clients to ensure that they will show up.

Manage Social Media

18 out of 20 home buyers start looking for a new home on the internet, and one of the most common places they will search are social media sites. Local real estate businesses will often have Facebook and/or Instagram accounts where they can post news, updates, and links to new listings for users to see and access. If you have social media accounts, you probably aren’t as active as you should be. Thus, a real estate virtual assistant can help you here as well. It can take a long time to fulfill everything you need to on social media throughout the day, so a virtual assistant can also make your social media much easier to handle.

Market Your Business

Of course, your company won’t be in business for long if you cannot market effectively. Thankfully, a virtual assistant in real estate can help you with branding, marketing, and advertising so that your company can be discovered by many folks in your area. Marketing jobs for a real estate virtual assistant include designing marketing materials, finding and emailing leads, conduct analytics, and more to ensure that you constantly find new clients.
