When you’ve started your Rent Roll, your life as a business owner becomes busier.  You have more clients now, so of course you have more things to do each day.  So, when things become really busy for you and your team, you might find yourself tempted to hire more staff.

But here’s an idea… Before you start writing that ad to go on Seek, ask yourself a few questions:

  1. Is there any software or technology available that could reduce the workload? There are so many technologies available now, like Maintenance ManagerInspect Real Estate and so much more that provides automation and a reduction in workload for your team.
  2. Can you outsource something locally? Perhaps the phone is ringing like crazy and you think you need a receptionist.  Did you know that you can outsource this?  There are companies, like Silent Partner who will answer your phone and handle all your calls as though they’re sitting in your actual office – your clients will never know!
  3. Can you outsource internationally? If you’re doing most of your own administration and paperwork, you probably shouldn’t be.  You can hire a Virtual Assistant to do most of these tasks for you for about a half to a third of the hourly rate of an employee in your office.  If you’ve never hired a VA before, try an Australian company like My Virtual Assistant Team or Property Management Virtual Assistant who will help you hire the right assistant for your team.

Sure, there may come a time when you want to hire additional employees for your team, but you might also be able to save yourself a lot of money by looking at other ways to get these tasks done without having to hire more staff straight away.
