Field Service Company REO RESQ Founder, Frank Patrick, Calls For Swifter Government Action on Property Preservation

Frank Patrick, founder of property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, says that foreclosures will continue to increase in 2010 and the government can play an important role in maintaining these properties. 

Scottsdale, Ariz. – February 8, 2010 – According to a recent article by Frank Patrick, one of the country’s top REO (Real Estate Owned/Bank Foreclosure) experts, a continued increase of foreclosures are destined to hit the market throughout 2010.  This onslaught of new foreclosure properties, or REO properties, will create a strong demand for field service companies, property preservation contractors, and trash out businesses.

Frank’s recent article, “More Government Action: More Property Preservation,” calls for swifter government involvement in helping to maintain foreclosed properties. “As more and more foreclosed homes are left vacant and in bureaucratic limbo, more and more neighborhoods and communities all across America are facing the health, safety and social hazards presented by these unsecured, uncared-for properties, which continue to deteriorate,” wrote Frank Patrick. 

Frank goes on to highlight a recent ordinance passed by the Aurora, Colo. City Council that charges lenders to register foreclosed properties. These charges have created an increased revenue stream for the city, as well as an increase in the utilization of property preservation services. 

“As more and more counties and communities like Aurora work to fix the foreclosure problem, property preservation experts will be more in demand than they already are, truly making it the biggest foreclosure business opportunity available,” Frank Patrick continued. 

In addition to being the founder of the property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, Frank Patrick is also the founder of American Society of REO Specialists™ (ASREOS). Patrick has recently been featured in Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today for his expertise and success in the REO Sales and REO agent training industry.
