8 Free Real Estate Checklists to Maximize Your Profits

Maximizing your property sales and boosting referrals

89% of homeowners sell their property through an estate agent, which means that agents need to be at the top of their game in order to attract and retain clients amongst stiff competition.

Combine that with the fact that only half of the sellers said they were satisfied with the selling process, and you have a lot of dissatisfied customers.

Whilst this shows the real estate market in a surprisingly negative light, it can also be seized as an opportunity to stand out from other agents. If you could provide a high-quality service and an efficient method to guide your client through the property sale process, referrals will soon be replacing customer dissatisfaction.

‘Make sure everyone who works with you or for you, feels the need to tell others about the incredible experience’ – Chris Murray

Clear processes help you continuously improve your services by optimizing the tasks you do every day, week, or month. With concrete instructions for your team and opportunities to automate time-wasting data entry, you can concentrate on the bigger picture and maximize property sales.

To help your services stand out, we here at Process Street have compiled 8 real estate checklists for estate agents to either use themselves or recommend to their clients. They include a comprehensive guide to the property sales process in addition to everything from a home inspection, cleaning, staging, and listing.

4 Easy Steps to Perfect Your Daily Routine

Daily Routine - Header
We’ve all been there. You wake up between 7 and 9, have a quick breakfast (or not at all) and start work. Perhaps you’re hoping to get that big project out of the way to get ahead, then blast away some of the more difficult topics whilst you’re on a roll?

The trouble is, if you set off working ASAP after waking up, the chances are that something will stop you. It could be that you’re not awake properly and so don’t work as quickly as you’d like, or that you burn out in the first few morning hours, drudging through your afternoon in a zombified, unproductive state.

9 Property Management Checklists to Keep Your Rental Processes on Track

property management checklists

There’s a growing need for process documentation in real estate

Managing properties isn’t just about real estate — it’s just as much about relationships.

You have to track conversations and deal statuses across multiple landlords, tenants, and applicants in addition to managing the properties themselves. It’s high-touch, high-urgency, and high-stress work.

Especially if you don’t have the first clue about processes.

If you take a peek at the numbers, you’ll see the BPM in real estate market is expected to grow at a rate of 24.8% between 2016 and 2021.

Property management firms are beginning to place a greater focus on improving business efficiency because that enables them to deliver their clients a superior service.

To turn your disorganized business around, creating a modern, automated system for documenting processes is an absolute must.

“A habit of highly successful property managers is creating step-by-step playbooks and standardized processes for everything. This documentation not only ensures consistency and operational efficiency but also shortens the amount of time required to train up new staff.” – Silvia Liu, 7 Habits of Highly Succesful Property Managers

Market research analysis conducted by Research N Reports drives this message home by claiming that the increasing need for accurate process documentation is a key driver of property management software adoption.

3 Awesome New Checklists on How to Make a Podcast

How to make a podcast

How to Make a Podcast with Process Street

Strangely enough, I came into the content writing world from a sound engineering degree. While I stuck with it for the full three years, after a while I turned back to what I always enjoyed in college – writing.

When there weren’t enough essays to write, I got whatever writing work I could online, and, after three years of (unrewarding) jobs and about three hours of sleep, I graduated today (applause) with knowledge of two things: writing and audio.

Three years of writing ‘SEO friendly’ (read as: only search engines understand it) articles about waste removal services, and I’m finally where I want to be.

Now I can write about things I like, and that’s what we’re bringing you here. The first checklist I wrote for Process Street – The Podcast Publishing Checklist – along with three more written by the fantastic James Schramko from SuperFastBusiness – a man I can truly say knows his stuff about sound.

What is ASO? The App Optimization Strategy to Boost Your Downloads

what is aso app optimization new headerThe app market is booming and revenue is soaring.

According to TechCrunch, citing a report from AppAnnie:

Global app downloads topped 175 billion and consumer spending exceeded $86 billion in 2017, thanks to growth in emerging markets including China, India, Brazil and Russia…

One of the benefits of targeting this huge and growing market is that the Appstore and PlayStore are largely closed ecosystems. You can promote your apps directly to potential users in the one marketplace they are using to access apps.

The AppAnnie report also notes that app usage is up, with the average user spending 3 hours a day within apps on their phone. This means your app, once downloaded, is competing with the other apps on a user’s phone rather than countless other websites across the web.

So how do we get these downloads?

According to another report co-authored by AppAnnie and Adjust, titled The Complete Guide to Mobile App Marketing: App Store Optimisation, two thirds of all app downloads are organic. This means the app has been found in the store as a result of a user’s search, rather than being directed there by adverts on Facebook, Google, or elsewhere.

To harness these downloads and drive consistent traffic to your app, you need to have a strategy for app store optimization: ASO.

In this Process Street article, we’ll look at:

  • What is ASO?
  • How to build a process for keyword optimization
  • What are the best platforms to help you drive downloads?

9 School Checklists for Teachers and Administrators to Bring Order to Chaos

school checklists

Checklists keep us on track and organized. They keep things standardized and controlled.

So where better to employ checklists than amidst the chaos of children?

In this Process Street template pack we’re covering a much requested use case: education.

Thomas R. Hoerr, writing for ASCD, describes how easy it is to imagine incorporating checklists into a whole range of different educational situations:

I can envision checklists that ensure that we have reviewed all aspects of a student’s progress, that teachers have incorporated all of our talking points in their presentations to parents, and that I have spoken to all the relevant stakeholders before I initiate action.

These school checklists cover use cases which apply to teachers, some for administrators, and others which could be useful around a campus.

The 9 checklists below should help users adhere to best practices, create consistency of approach, and document important information for future review.

3 Enterprise Automation Examples: Achieving End-To-End Efficiency

automation examples

Research indicates that inefficient workflows can cost up to 30% of your total revenue every year. That’s a third of your enterprise’s earning being wasted on everything from a single missed email to a stock of excess inventory.

Imagine what you could do with that money. You could hire new employees to scale your business even further. Department budgets could be expanded to allow better equipment to be used.

All of this and more can be achieved with business process automation.

To demonstrate, let’s go over three core automation examples for processes which often include many of those typical inefficiencies, such as:

All of these processes will be given in full, and by the end of this post you’ll know how to eliminate inefficiency by using basic, process, integration, and robotic automation.

It’s time to take back that 30% of your revenue.
