Your real estate company has the potential to help you make a lot of money. However, we would be lying if we said the process took care of itself. The reality is that real estate businesses demand careful attention and active maintenance. You may find yourself dedicating considerable amounts of time and energy to your work, especially if you aren’t using all the tools at your disposal that can streamline it. To help you make things a bit easier, the team at Real Estate Masters has put together a list of some tools you can use to stay on top of your project management. These programs will allow you to become a more efficient company, so that you can offer your clients better service.
Podio is a general project management tool that is particularly useful when coordinating business processes. Unlike some other collaboration software, Podio comes with specific features that make it easy to display data. You’ll be able to see precisely what phase a project is in, who is responsible for each aspect of it, and when it is due. Creative real estate investors can find it easy to adapt Podio for use during long-term transactions and use it to see how much progress they’ve made on each purchase or sale.
Trello helps you organize projects by creating “Trello Boards,” which are lists of different virtual cards. These cards allow you to categorize various pieces of information. Many real estate investors use Trello to create comprehensive lists of properties that are currently on the market, as well as those that have already been sold or are currently under contract.
Basecamp is another broad project management platform, which is intended to help delegate during group projects. It allows you to create and assign tasks to different individuals, along with deadlines, comments, and file-sharing abilities. Real estate professionals can use Basecamp to arrange inspections, assign photographers to various properties, set open house dates, and plan the completion of contracts or other documents. With Basecamp, the intricate process of buying or selling a property can be managed from one place.
Co-Construct is an app designed to make custom building easier. It uses cloud-based software to let you communicate seamlessly with your clients and crew from a single interface. It also provides advanced scheduling features that let you plan your build in a fluid, user-friendly way.
Dropbox and Google Drive deserve a quick mention on this list as well. Many of the project management tools listed above come with file sharing capabilities (such as Basecamp), so it will help to keep all your documents organized in a digital archive. Either of these platforms will allow you to do so, with different folders, tags, and other features.
It is worth noting that while all the project management and real estate tools listed above can help you better manage your properties, real estate can still be a lot of work.
