Consider adding a virtual personal assistant to handle the day-to-day activities of the business. These individuals can be found through the Internet and can make business a bit more manageable.

Dallas, Texas HomeVestors is the nation’s number one home buying franchise and has helped real estate investors purchase 50,000 properties over the years. The company knows that as real estate investors expand the scope of their operations, the need to leverage time becomes essential. Having a team of assistants to help out with various tasks is the most logical way to go. These days with the Internet extending its reach into almost every aspect of personal and business dealings, a virtual assistant is a logical consideration. Just like a regular personal assistant, a virtual assistant would assist with most routine work, interview processes and handle daily correspondences.

A virtual assistant offers most, if not all of the benefits that come with hiring a personal assistant, with some extra bonuses. First of all, virtual assistants are generally less expensive to maintain on average. Virtual assistants are generally independent contractors and hence, not entitled to benefits like health insurance and retirement benefits, which regular employees usually are. It isn’t that hard to find virtual assistants either. With the proliferation of freelancing sites and with the perpetual high unemployment levels, there is no shortage of quality skilled individuals looking to work online.

The fact that a virtual assistant can work remotely dispenses the need for having a physical office for which rent and utilities would have to be paid. There won’t be any need for a permanently installed landlines telephone either. A local VOIP number can be established for a very low cost. It wouldn’t make any difference to a client being contacted from such a number, as to what part of the world an assistant making a call to them was located in. Since independent contractors take care of their own tax obligations, investors wouldn’t have to worry about that either. Finally, there are very convenient, secure, yet inexpensive ways to make payments, such as through PayPal.

As with anything that makes life better, there are drawbacks to using virtual assistants as a means to leverage time. It is never easy to verify qualifications or the identity of an applicant. Anyone can say they are whoever they want to be on the Internet and can claim to have any number of qualifications or skills they desire. To get around this, investors should always make sure they carry out their recruiting on well reputable sites like Odesk or Elance that take the pains to verify identities and provide self-assessment tests on various subject areas. A foolproof contract can always be drawn up and signed by both parties to solidly establish obligations and rights. To make the working relationship less impersonal, interviews or regular meetings can be conducted over video chatting platforms such as Skype.
