How Does VPM Solutions Solve Property Management Business Challenges?
Published February 17, 2022. Updated July 13, 2023.
As a property manager, you face a stressful and challenging job. However, finding the talent you need to build a workforce that supports your business and delights customers should not be a challenge you have to deal with!
We know that business owners face a variety of challenges when it comes to assembling the right team of people and managing overhead budgets. Here are just a few of the many ways VPM Solutions solves property management business challenges.
We Reduce Your Highest Expenses
How can adding team members reduce costs? When choosing virtual property management talent, businesses can cut two of their most significant costs: payroll and office space!
Cut Payroll Costs
Hiring full-time W-2 employees is expensive! However, many property managers don't realize there are other options besides scouring the local job market to hire in-person team members.
With an onsite employee, a property manager must pay competitive salaries based on U.S. job markets. They must also provide benefits, like paid time off and health insurance. Getting someone working in your office means adding significant costs to your payroll line items.
However, when choosing virtual solutions to build your workforce with independent contractors, you eliminate many payroll costs! In most cases, property management virtual assistants work for lower salaries that, while competitive in their locales, are lower than competitive rates in the U.S.
VAs also don't require benefits packages to come to work for you. Without benefits or high salaries, property managers see lower payroll costs.
Reduce Office Expenses
Because your VA works remotely, they don't need a desk or equipment in your home office.
Most property managers that choose virtual contractors find that they can reduce office space and equipment expenditures — without sacrificing quality for remote team members and the work they deliver!
Between payroll and office expenses, VPM Solutions helps property management companies reduce these two biggest budget line items.
We Help You Increase Profitability
So, choosing lower-cost team members that work remotely can be an excellent way to reduce expenses — but can it also help increase profitability? Yes!
Choosing VPM Solutions means businesses can access thousands of skilled property management virtual assistants. So while you're paying less to build your workforce, you're gaining experienced and talented team members that serve your clients well.
No matter the type of VA you need, whether it's a marketing assistant, bookkeeper, maintenance coordinator, or administrative assistant, you can build your team with skilled freelancers that help you retain clients while scaling your business for growth.
Lower costs and more profits mean a better bottom line!
We Help Reduce Stress
A stressed team can't perform their best work for your property management company or clients. When you have more work than team members to get it done, your in-house employees feel the pressure of too many tasks on their plates. Without enough hands on deck, managers see unhappy and overworked employees, too many mistakes, and dissatisfied clients.
Sometimes reducing stress (and churn) for your team starts by adding another team member. Often, even a part-time virtual assistant to take on routine tasks can help relieve stress and reduce the workload for team members who need helps in critical areas.
In addition, when you find a quality virtual assistant that's the right asset for your team, there are plenty of things property management companies can do to encourage them to stay on long-term!
Plus, by shifting some tasks to a virtual property management assistant, your in-house team members experience balanced workloads. They don't have to work late to get their job done. They don't miss phone calls because they are too busy to pick up the phone.
Instead, they experience better work-life balance, which helps your bottom line!
We Help You Keep Clients Happy
What's the result of an overworked or inexperienced team? They can't serve your clients well, and unhappy clients won't stick around for poor-quality service.
However, adding someone to your team that maybe isn't the right fit can be worse than looking at other options to manage workloads and deliver better customer service.
VPM Solutions delivers talented property management virtual assistants that solve the challenge of keeping clients happy! With the right VA in the right role, you have a resource to take on lower-level tasks that keep your client-facing team members from building good relationships with your clients.
Then, with routine tasks off their plates, your in-house employees can focus on what is important rather than being spread too thin or dealing with unnecessary distractions that keep them from serving clients well.
