Real Estate Virtual Assistants Can Help Agents Balance the REO Workload.

As a real estate agent, you know that the more BPO’s you accept, the more money you make and the higher your rating will become with the banks that offer BPO’s. But as an agent your time is valuable and the time you may want to devote to BPO’s is being spent in listing, marketing and transaction management. So if you are really interested in expanding your business into the realm of BPO’s, how can you do this?

Partner with a real estate virtual assistant to obtain more BPO’s and perfect your REO Marketing.

Did you know you can set up your system to allow the real estate virtual assistant to accept as many incoming BPO orders as you want? You do not have to be in the office to accept them. Also your REVA can pull the comps and tax records for you if you do not have the time.

Let's face it, the BPO forms do take time but if you can correctly leverage the skills of a real estate virtual assistant and your time, you will be able to offer these services.

What about the REO Marketing portion? How can a real estate virtual assistant help? Below is a list of some of the duties that can be taken off of your plate.

  • Schedule property repairs
  • Take care of turning on and off the utilities
  • Order trash services
  • Take care of lawn services
  • Order pre-inspections
  • Vendor monitoring
  • Accounts payable and receivables

Marketing activities can be delegated such as:

  • Uploading images to MLS, updating property information
  • Distribution of flyers to agents, and buyers
  • Scheduling open houses and maintaining showing schedules
  • Completing your monthly marketing report
  • Feedback reports.

And much more!!

If you think that BPO/REO Services is something that you are really interested in, but did not think you had the time to do, why don’t you discuss your options with a real estate virtual assistant.
