Outsourcing vs Insourcing | What’s Best For Your Business?

Outsourcing vs Insourcing

Outsourcing is the practice of enlisting help or services for your business from a third party organisation not affiliated with your company. The alternative is hiring an employee to work in-house on the services which you require – this is known as “insourcing”. If you’re tossing up between which option best suits your real estate business, this article will help you decide!

Traditionally, outsourcing has meant engaging a contractor, as and when you need them. Now, however, in 2019, where everything works at the touch of a button, you can easily outsource to a Virtual Assistant who can work exclusively for your business full-time. For example, you might want to hire a full-time Virtual Assistant to support real estate property managers by handling the never-ending tasks like processing applications, paying bills & invoices and generating lease renewals. That way, your property managers can be more productive and focus on the bigger, more pressing tasks.

A Virtual Assistant is a cloud-based professional that works offshore from a dedicated workspace. They become a member of your team, however, they’re just not in your office! Below is a list of the various kinds of VAs that you can hire for your real estate business:
