Set Sail with Project Management: How To Add Profitable Extra Value to Your Estate Agency Services

Project Management

Arr matey, let's set sail on a new adventure together!

An adventure that's going to add a spectacular array of dazzling jewels to your estate agency's treasure chest.

I'm talking about project management.

Now, you might be thinking, "Project management? That's the kind of jargon I'd hear in an office cubicle, not on the open seas of real estate!"

But stick with me. You're about to discover how project management can catapult your agency to new heights of success.


Project Management: The Hidden Gold in Real Estate

Why project management? Well, think about it this way. You're not just selling houses. You're selling dreams. And each dream is a project that needs careful managing to ensure it becomes a reality.

Project management means overseeing the entire process of a property transaction. And this is especially true when it comes to working with (remote) property investors. From sourcing the initial property, through to project managing the renovation works in alignment with the investors strategy (flip or rental), to the final sale or tenant placement, a project manager ensures everything runs smoothly.


Adding Value with Project Management Services

But how does offering project management services add value to your agency?

Well, for starters, it positions you as a full-service agency, capable of handling every aspect of the property investment process. This makes you incredibly attractive to those remote or armchair property investors who prefer a 'one-stop-shop' approach.

It also creates additional revenue streams. Project management fees for overseeing the renovation works together with tenant finding fees or a commission for flipping the deal at the end – can all contribute to boosting your bottom line.

Guiding Investors Through the Rough Seas

Project management services also make you a lighthouse, guiding investors through the rough and sometimes foggy seas of the property market.

By offering expert advice and oversight, you help them avoid the treacherous rocks of poor investments and ensure they sail smoothly into the calm waters of profitable property ownership.


The Project Management Treasure Chest

So, what should be in your project management treasure chest? Here's a quick rundown:

1. Property Sourcing: Help investors find the best properties for their portfolio. And claim a healthy fee for your efforts.

2. Project Management: Ensure renovation works are done on time, within budget, and up to standard. You can claim a fee for this too!

3. Tenant Placement: Find reliable tenants for rental properties you've just finished renovating for your investor clients. Yup, there's a fee chargeable for this too!

4. Sales: If your investor client decides to flip it – you can assist with the sale of the newly-renovated home. Did I mention there's a fee for this too? And if you sell it to an armchair investor who wants to rent it out – proceed to Step 5.

5. Property Management: Landlords shouldn't be managing properties themselves – you have the expertise and training to keep them on the right side of the law and manage their tenants for them. So let them pay for the peace of mind your professionalism gives them. And don't forget your fees!

Each service is a piece of eight in your treasure chest, contributing to your agency's overall wealth. Isn't this more lucrative than just selling a property for a homeowner against a background of your competition overvaluing and under-feeing each listing? Because you can bet your bottom dollar that the majority won't be doing this!


The Captain's Log: Tracking Progress

Project management is about more than just overseeing tasks. It's also about tracking progress and ensuring everyone is on the same page. In this context, this means setting up regular meetings with investors, contractors, and other stakeholders to discuss progress and address any issues – ultimately helping to keep the project on track and on budget and to the standard you need for the investor's strategy.

As an estate agent, you could provide weekly or monthly updates, including photos of renovation works, budget updates, and timelines, all within WiggyWam workspaces to instantly update your clients. This kind of transparency can build trust and make them feel more comfortable about investing large amounts of money into a property your project managing for them.

Your Trusty Crew: Building a Reliable Network

As project manager, you'll need to put your trust in a crew of reliable contractors, legal advisors, and other professionals. Building this network of trusted professionals is crucial to delivering a high-quality service to your clients.

Plus, if they know what side their bread is buttered, they'll be more likely to help you out if you're ever in a jam.


The Captain's Code: Setting Clear Expectations

Just as every Captain's ship had its code, every project needs a clear set of expectations. This is especially important when dealing with investors, who need to understand what they can realistically expect from their investment and from the additional services you provide.

As part of your project management services, your estate agency could provide clear project plans, including projected timelines, budgets, and potential returns. This kind of planning can help to avoid disputes down the line and ensure your clients feel confident in planning their cashflow to support their new investment.

Plus, it's the smart thing to do! Agreeing the timeline of events with the builder, along with stage payments to be made along the way, helps ensure disputes don't raise their ugly head. Plus it's a line in the sand that everyone's working towards, focussing their minds so that things get done on time.
