What is the salary of a Leasing Assistant?

A primary factor in determining salary is the location. Wages are higher or lower in specific areas depending on the cost of living. You can save by hiring a virtual leasing specialist who works in a country with low labor costs.

What are the duties of a Leasing Assistant?

What are the duties of a Leasing Assistant
So, what are the duties and responsibilities of a leasing assistant? Typically, any tasks related to leasing commercial or residential property are expected to be fulfilled by a leasing assistant. They provide the utmost support and assist property managers. This may also vary depending on the company’s needs and the leasing assistant’s skills.
Here is a lease assistant’s job description and common tasks:
  • Provide information to prospective clients about the properties and the leasing process, sometimes showing the property
  • Set up appointments for the showing of the property
  • Prepare leasing documents for signature
  • Collect rent payments
  • Maintain financial records or work with other employees to ensure the accuracy of the records
  • Update databases with new rental agreements
  • Coordinate with lawyers and other professionals, as necessary, to handle disputes or evictions
  • Prepare marketing materials
  • Process move-out documents and ensure the prompt return of the tenant’s deposit
  • Secure move-in clearances and schedule move-ins. Collect the security deposit
  • Screening prospective tenants
A successful leasing assistant should be highly organized and attentive to detail. They also need excellent time management skills. Some leasing assistants have bachelor’s degrees in business or some specific real estate training, certification, or licensing.

Leasing Assistant Role

With a bit of flexibility and the right tools, a virtual leasing assistant can perform all the core job functions. We’ve listed the primary leasing assistant duties below. We marked tasks as a tick for virtual, cross for not possible, and both tick and cross if partially doable remotely.

As you can see, a virtual leasing assistant can do all the core job functions with minor adjustments. ShoreAgents can assist in optimizing your processes and tools to maximize the benefits of hiring a virtual leasing assistant.

Where to hire a Leasing Assistant?

Where to hire a Leasing Assistant
The choices are hiring locally or partnering with an offshore staffing firm to hire a virtual assistant.
Let’s consider each alternative. While the local hiring option is a traditional approach, it may not always be the most effective one. In this case, hiring locally would require a significant time investment, which may divert your attention from your core business functions.
Your training as a real estate agency owner likely did not include the skills necessary for managing the hiring process. You are trained to find commercial or residential properties and lease them. You enjoy doing commercial or residential deals. Any time you spend hiring is less time performing your core business function.
Once you hire someone locally, you’ll still have to find and equip a comfortable office space. At the same time, work hard to keep your full-time leasing assistant engaged so they’ll stick with you.
ShoreAgents Real Estate
The second option is partnering with ShoreAgents, a real estate staffing firm based in the Philippines. Staffing is our core business and we enjoy seeing how our work helps you succeed. Our hiring services include:
  • Helping you to clarify what you want in your ideal leasing assistant.
  • Recruiting and advertising for that assistant.
  • Presenting you with candidates to interview.
  • Providing a spacious, modern office where the property accountant works with others in similar roles for other companies.
  • Equipping the leasing assistant for success with a desk, computer, two monitors, a webcam, and headphones.
  • Sharing our knowledge of the real estate business through our founder and day-to-day director, Stephen Atcheler.

Takeaway

Our location in the Philippines also provides many benefits in hiring. Filipinos speak and write fluent English and are eager to work with foreign companies. The government provides incentives for specialized training and education, which means the workforce is well-qualified.
The Philippines was ruled first by Spain and later by the United States. Therefore, its culture shares similarities with European countries and with Canada and the United States. Finally, the labor costs in the Philippines are a fraction of those in most Westernized countries.
ShoreAgents is an offshore real estate staffing company that knows what is required to run a profitable property management business. We understand your needs and can help ensure you find the right leasing assistant and develop a productive relationship.
We are ShoreAgents. We provide staff to support every niche within the real estate industry.
