I think it's just a matter of finding the right person who can articulate the content you want to put on your site, and part of that depends on the clarity of the objectives and parameters given to the writer.
Of course, there is a matter of "getting what you paid for", so it's also important to pay quality staff accordingly.
In the context of outsourcing (meaning paying someone who lives in a place where the economic standard of living is different from yours), the rate given to outsourced writers should be reasonable enough to support their needs. For instance, consider the wages for an entry level job in the given country and go from there.
It's really just a matter of finding a middle ground - where the rate is not as high as the local one in your own country but higher than the usual standard in the country to be outsourced to. That way, everybody's happy. :)
