Boost the Productivity of Your Real Estate Empire
Hello there wannabe productive property tycoons! If you are someone who has always dreamed of not only building a lucrative real estate empire but also turning it into a well-oiled empire that almost runs by itself, then there are a few tips and tricks you need to know to get your business running full throttle open all cylinders, so without further ado…
1. Leverage the power of lease management software
If you only take one thing away from this post, it should be that lessee management software, which you can buy from CRE software solutions, is a game-changer in the real estate business.
If you are someone who is still navigating the world of real estate, managing your own leases by pushing around bits of paper and chasing up tenants on the phone, then it is time for you to move with the times, because chances are you are nowhere near as productive as you could, or should be.
Basically, you’re doing it the hard way. It’s like trying to chop down a tree with a herring (a big no-no, according to Monty Python, and I totally agree). But, don’t worry because lease management software will change everything for you by streamlining every aspect of your business from lease tracking and rent collection, to even tracking the progress of property maintenance, and maintenance requests too, of course. Not only that, but it will do away with the need for endless pieces of paper and filing cabinets, which can get lost and which can take so much longer to deal with. Everything will be on your computer at the touch of a button, so, it’s exactly what you need if boosting productivity is your aim.
2. Don’t delay, automate today!
One of the best productivity hacks there is for anyone in any business right now, is automation. If you’re serious about being as productive as you can possibly be, then automation really is the key that opens the door to working smarter, not harder.
As a property mogul, you’ve got bigger fish to fry than dealing with routine tasks that could easily be automated. So, imagine if you were able to delegate all of those tasks that take up your time to a workforce that not only does not ever sleep, but that also does not require an annual salary. That’s automation for you!
There are a number of ways you can automate your real estate business from the aforementioned leasing management software to setting up automated email responses for tenant inquiries and sending out automatic rent payment reminders, all of which will free up your time for the more important business of acquiring property and growing your empire.
Of course, when you automate things, there is an automatic digital trail of all aspects of your business, which does away with all of that “he said, she said,” drama that comes with late rent payments or forgotten maintenance projects, etc.
3. Keep the lines of communication open and clear
One other thing that can really help you to boost productivity in your real estate empire is improving communication. In any business, it is so easy for misunderstandings to happen and when they do, they can derail the trajectory of your business more than you might think.
Misunderstandings and mix-ups can lead to wasted time, money, and – let’s be real – a whole lot of stress whether it’s via missed rental payments or work not getting done on a property quickly enough, causing it to fall into a state of disrepair. That’s why it is so important that you state all of your intentions and requests clearly, and you take the time to fully train any employees you have so they always know what is expected of them.
You should also make it as easy as possible for your tenants to get in touch with you with their requests and concerns. You might think increasing communications would make you less productive, but it is actually eh opposite. It enables things to run as smoothly as possible, which means your business productivity is less hampered by miscommunications and languishing issues.
As you can see, it is actually pretty simple to boost the productivity of your real estate empire, but you need to be serious about doing so, and make the necessary changes, including those mentioned above, if you want to get to the point where your business is running like a Japanese bullet train, rather than an old steam engine. So, what are you waiting for?
