Property Preservation Companies: Why They’re One of the Best Sources to Target for Foreclosure Cleaning Jobs

In today’s post, Cassandra Black, the author of a leading line of foreclosure clean up business ebooks, explains the ins and outs of why property preservation companies are good sources of job leads. She details the type of work you can expect from them, services to sign up for when you contact them, requirements for doing business with these companies — and much more.

Where to Find Foreclosure Cleanup Clients For Your Business

A fertile client base for new foreclosure cleanup businesses can be the large property preservation company — specifically those companies that handle several states. These businesses will be larger companies that already have the business. You will be contacting them in an effort to seek subcontracting work. Many perform a host of property preservation activities such as the following:

–Trash Removal
–Yard Work and Tree Service
–Re-Keying
–Painting
–House Cleaning
–Debris Removal and Trashouts (Interior and Exterior)
–Pool Service
–Hazardous Material Removal and Pest Control Services
–Mold Removal and Inspection Services
–General Inspection Services
–Carpet Repair and Installation
–Flooring/Tile, Repair and Installation
–General Contractor, Drywall and Stucco Repair
–Cabinetry Services
–Electrical and Plumbing Services
–Roofing, Masonry and Concrete Work
–Window and Door Repair/Installation
–Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning
–Winterization
–Etc.

Services for Which You Should Sign Up: As a smaller foreclosure cleanup company, you may only offer some of the services for which the larger companies seek contractors. For example, you might not offer winterization or lock changing, but you may specialize in debris removal and lawn care. That’s okay; you can still apply to become a vendor offering only the services for which you are set up to perform.

Many of the foreclosure cleanup online applications have checklists where you can simply indicate which services you are interested in handling for the larger company.

What’s in a ZIP Code? Most of the larger, formal companies will ask you to specify which areas you service based on zip codes in your area. It may be tempting to list all of the zip codes in your surrounding counties. But don’t. Only list the zip codes you know you can comfortably service, or you may get overwhelmed.

Go to the United States Postal Service’s website and click on ZIP Code Lookup (by City) to find all the ZIP codes in your city and narrow down those areas you want to service. Once you have your ZIP code service list, you will need to refer to it often, so keep it in a file on your computer for easy access when filling out foreclosure cleanup applications.

License and Tax ID? Are you all set up to target the larger companies for foreclosure cleanup work? You will need to be properly licensed as a business and will have to submit tax ID information to the larger company to be considered as a vendor.

Business Insurance: Also, there are often strict insurance guidelines when you are seeking to become a subcontractor for a larger property preservation company, so pay close attention to the individual requirements.

Liability Coverage: At the outset, here are some basic liability insurance limits to consider, at minimum:

Each Occurrence: $1,000,000
General Aggregate: $2,000,000
Product/Completed Operations Aggregate: $2,000,000

Workmen’s Compensation: Many of these larger companies will also require workmen’s compensation insurance, which can be expensive for a new business owner, but many will not require proof of workmen’s compensation until they are considering sending you work.

How to Find Larger Property Preservation Companies: Below are some key phrases to research in Internet search engines that will help you find larger contractors who specialize in foreclosure cleanup work. Go to search engines like Google, Yahoo, Dogpile, AltaVista, etc. Start out searching these keyword phrases:

–property management companies
–property preservation companies
–asset management companies
–mortgage field services companies
–real estate management companies
–property management companies
–maintenance and management companies
–REO management companies
–field services companies
–private mortgage insurance companies
–bank REO departments
–asset management departments
–mortgage servicers
–REO departments
–asset management branch
–property disposition companies

As you search, you will have to sift through a lot of non-relative websites, but you will eventually come across some viable companies to target.

It’s a Numbers Game: Don’t stop at one or two foreclosure cleanup vendor applications. Sign up with as many larger companies as you can find so you are greasing the pipes for future business.

Good luck with your foreclosure cleanup business!

Enticing Veterans to Buy Homes

Here’s a switch . . .

Richard Peach, senior vice president at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, said thinks there should be incentives for the veterans to buy government-held foreclosures. At a recent conference of the National Association of Realtors, he suggested giving down payment help or some type of tax break to veterans for buying foreclosures owned by mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Think this is a good idea?

How Holidays Affect Foreclosure: No Breaks Given Simply Because It’s a Holiday

ForeclosureBusinessNews.com: “Foreclosure News the Average Joe Can Use!” Find Trusted Vendors, eg, Foreclosure Lawyers, Mortgage Consultants, Cleaning Co’s, Etc.

You’d think that around the holidays, compassion and sympathy would kick in for victims of foreclosure. No dice! Once a Notice to Vacate has been issued, the clock is ticking — and that includes holidays. Proof? According to the article, How The Holidays Affect Foreclosure Evictions:

The foreclosure process is not  kind to homeowners or tenants of rental properties. Both parties stand to lose and both may experience the undue stress of eviction.

If a foreclosure eviction notice falls on, or has a window that includes, a bank holiday the renter could face serious charges for not vacating in adequate time. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day are all  bank holidays that count towards the number of days given in the notice to vacate, which means there is no break given on evictions simply because it is a holiday. (emphasis added)

How Long Do You Really Have to Move When You’re Issued a Foreclosure Notice?

Well, this varies from state to state, and depends heavily on if you live in a judicial or non-judicial foreclosure state. See the post, Mortgage Foreclosure Timeline: How the Foreclosure Process Works & How Long You Actually Have to Move if You Eventually Lose Your Home for in-depth info on the difference between these two types of foreclosure states.

As for how long you really have before you have to vacate your home if you’re foreclosed on, this post can help: Foreclosure Timeline for All 50 States: Get a state-by-state breakdown of how long the foreclosure process takes.

Home Foreclosure News of the Day: Foreclosure Law Firm that Held Halloween Party Making Fun of Foreclosed-On Homeowners to Shut Down

ForeclosureBusinessNews.com: “Foreclosure News the Average Joe Can Use!” Find Trusted Vendors, eg, Foreclosure Lawyers, Mortgage Consultants, Cleaning Co’s, Etc.

Well lordy, lordy, aint karma a bitch! The foreclosure law firm that held a Halloween party poking fun at foreclosed-on homeowners is shutting its doors. The reason?

Well according to the BusinessWeek.com article, Steven J. Baum PC, New York Foreclosure Firm, to Shut Down, via Bloomberg:

Steven J. Baum PC, one of the largest law firms specializing in home foreclosures in New York state, is shutting down after losing business from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

This month, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage- finance companies operating under U.S. conservatorship, dropped Steven J. Baum PC from their lists of law firms eligible to handle foreclosures. Home-loan servicers including Bank of America Corp. and Ally Financial Inc. also stopped using the firm, which last month agreed to pay the U.S. $2 million and change its practices to resolve a probe of faulty foreclosure filings.

 The only surprising thing here is that it didn’t happen sooner.

According to the MSN.com article, Should we tear down foreclosures?, some communities are taking drastic measures to protect property values; they’re tearing down foreclosed homes. And, it has some in an uproar. The article states:

Let’s get rid of foreclosed homes. Demolish them. We’d be better off without them, and here’s why.  . . . Many of them are vacant or abandoned, and those homes attract squatters, rodents and/or criminals.  . . . They quickly become a visual blight on a neighborhood. They rapidly decline in value and require money to pay taxes and upkeep, which can outstrip the return from a potential sale.

While it’s hard to argue with these facts, some community activists are taking another view, asking why, when so many are homeless, are some municipalities willing to tear down perfectly good dwellings. They want cities to reconsider. Some propose having skilled, homeless workers repair dwelllings (put in “sweat equity”) if you will, and have them take possession once the property is restored.

If you’re shaking your head going, “what about banks working to help keep existing owners in them,” well, that’s a question that’s being asked as well. But, many of the properties that are on the demolition list have long been abandoned. Hence, it’s kind of a moot point in many cases.

One thing’s for sure, more and more homeowners are doing voluntary foreclosures (ie, walking away from their homes) simply because they can’t get lenders to work with them. Will this lead to more blighted neighborhoods with homes that may one day be demolished?

Only time will tell.

Many homeowners in this foreclosure crisis have stopped paying their mortgages due to financial problems. But, they also know they’re living on borrowed time. Some are being wise – using this time to save for when they do eventually have to move; others are just riding it out, hoping that somehow, some way, they’ll be able to save their homes.

Home Foreclosure News of the Day: Want to Protect Your Property Value? Good Schools the Key

It’s no surprise than school districts play a major part in maintaining property values. As the Wall Street Journal blog post, One Antidote to Foreclosures: Good Schools, spells out:

Highly ranked school districts may have been spared the worst of the foreclosure crisis . . . Higher-rated school districts also maintained higher home-sale prices, and higher home prices per square foot.

“If you are looking to buy into one of these good school districts, it is very rare to find a foreclosure,” . . .

Competition for homes in highly ranked districts is not unusual. The Journal’s analysis found that when owners did sell in highly ranked districts, they almost always sold for more money than lower-ranked districts.

The Problem with Buying a Home in a Highly Ranked School District

Of course, price. At the height of the boom, these neighborhoods remained more out of reach than ever for many. And, this is why so many possibly forewent the wisdom of buying in neighborhoods like this and bought in neighborhoods with lesser schools. As the WSJ post linked to above points out, many probably thought they could upgrade in a few years. In short, they banked on home prices continuing to go up.

Well, we know how that turned out.

The Foreclosure Crisis: What It Means for Homeowners in Lesser-Rated School Districts

It probably means that many of these homes will become rentals, as homeowners have become more savvy. Many have learned lessons about banking on home prices continuing to go up, so if they have school-aged children, they are less likely to purchase a home in a lesser-ranked school district, even if the price is good.

This also means many of the homeowners in these neighborhoods will be stuck in their homes and/or will have to take less money if they’re trying to sell. And, of course, property values will stay depressed unless and/or until there’s another boom or the school districts improve.

While some communities will recover quite nicely from the foreclosure crisis, it’s going to take others a lot longer — and those in lesser school districts are probably at the top of this heap.
