Productivity Tips For Busy Realtors
Time management is one of the most difficult skills to master for any real estate agent. Most agents will tell you they’re busy, but not all of them are productive. Real estate is a competitive industry with new developments and changes constantly emerging. If you can boost your time management, your productivity will automatically improve.
Let’s take a look at our list of productivity tips, which can be applied to solo agents or brokerage teams.
1) Set Specific Goals
Quite often, we fail to reach our goals because we haven’t defined them clearly. Take the time to define your goals with specifics. Set a time frame, and work incrementally towards your target. Set a goal for each day, week and month, until you reach your target.
2) Create A Daily Checklist
A checklist helps to actually visualize and prioritize your daily tasks. With a checklist on your desk, you can systematically work through your list and easily assess your productivity for that day. Your daily checklist can be a simple template you create on an Excel or Google spreadsheet. It can also be a pad of paper you write your tasks on. Start the first 10 minutes of your day writing down all the things you need to accomplish. Cross out the tasks that don’t directly contribute to your goals. Then, check off each task as you complete it.
3) Learn To Be Flexible
Schedules are helpful for keeping you on track and mindful, but they are not written in stone. Be open to changing your priorities if an opportunity actually supports your goal. Then, adjust your targets accordingly to make sure you can still reach your goals. You should also assess the time you spent on open houses to determine how effective you were. If the time you spent on open houses produced 0 leads, perhaps you need to spend more time next month improving your open houses, or devote more time to prospecting.
4) Track Results
If you don’t track and measure your results, you’ll be like most agents who fail to hit their revenue targets. So track your cold calls, your listing appointments, and all of your lead generation efforts. With accurate, timely data in hand, you can adjust your marketing budget or your schedule as needed. You can then invest more wisely in actions and resources that generate positive results.
5) Outsource Other Tasks
Focus on what you do best, and outsource the other tasks. There are very affordable services that will match your need with the right freelancer for just about any service you can think of. You could, for example, hire someone to manage your social media accounts, or a transaction coordinator to handle administrative tasks. Hire a freelance videographer or graphic designer to create a batch of content.
