Real Estate Offshoring: The BPO Advantage

The Real Estate Offshoring Challenge

You may be thinking, why can’t I just go to the Philippines, establish my own team and do it all myself? Or why can’t I just look for freelance virtual assistants online?

It may look easy but the rules and regulations that govern Philippine real estate and labour greatly differs with Australia.

Bridging the Gap between Australian and Philippine Real Estate

If you want to offshore on your own. You have to understand the difference in the way the Philippines does Real Estate. In the Philippines, tenants pay directly to landlords at a predetermined date. The
guiding policies and government legislation are not as tight as they are in Australia.

You have to train your global team to also, understand this difference. You have to teach them the ropes of Australian real estate from renting and buying property, key players, jargons, tenant management, and many others. This will eat a lot of your time which can otherwise be used productively.

We, as your offshore provider, have the knowledge and experience to do this for you with ease. Prior to onboarding, our 30-day intensive industry-specific training ensures that your global team is well equipped with knowledge of the Australian real estate market.

Finding and Managing Global Talents

Another challenge is hiring the right team and managing them. If you do this on your own, you may find yourself drowning in human resource concerns from both your onshore and offshore teams.
