Property Management Virtual Assistant
What is a property
management virtual assistant?
A property management virtual assistant is a member of your team who is located offshore. They are a dedicated virtual assistant who works for your property management department from an office in the Philippines. They can work inside your normal working hours or outside, depending on your needs. Above all, a property management VA is a secure and hardworking staff member who is there to make your PM team more streamlined.
And best of all, a PMVA is a quarter or a third of the cost of what it would cost you to hire internally.
What can a property management VA do?
When you look at property management, it’s basically a flow. It moves from onboarding new landlords, advertising, prospecting tenants, leasing properties, carrying out inspections, dealing with repairs, and then through to lease renewals, vacates and relistings.The PM flow is fairly straightforward but it is time consuming and involves ticking off a lot of boxes.
A property management virtual assistant can help with every step of the flow. Your dedicated team member will dramatically ease the time and administrative burden that is currently slowing down your processes.
