Managers want to realize true value from outsourcing, with access to organizations that understand real estate, have true subject-matter experts and real estate-specific technology. The emergence of the property technology — or PropTech — industry has only accelerated that desire. With some executives hesitant to relinquish control over the performance of outsourced functions, finding a partner they can trust and consider an extension of the organization — especially those with real estate expertise and technology capabilities — can result in more positive outcomes. When outsourcing to partners experienced with various real estate fund structures and property types, it’s easier for companies to trust the work that their partners complete.2 October 2021
