Field Service Company REO RESQ™ Founder, Frank Patrick, Gives 6 Reasons Why Property Preservation Business is Hotter Than Ever

Frank Patrick, founder of mortgage field service and property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, writes how foreclosure clean out jobs continue to increase, making property preservation one of the hottest business opportunities around. 

Scottsdale, Ariz. – March 22, 2010 – Frank Patrick, one of the country’s top property preservation and mortgage field service experts, recently penned an article explaining why property preservation will continue to be the biggest foreclosure business opportunity around – and will grow even faster in the months to come.  In the article titled “The Property Preservation Business Opportunity: 6 Reasons Why It’s Hotter Than Ever,” Frank discusses how it’s easy and fast to get into the business, how banks have a huge ‘shadow inventory’ of foreclosed homes and how the foreclosure rate will continue to rise.

“If you live near a high-foreclosure area, you will find yourself in immediate demand if you establish yourself as a professional, responsible property preservation company. That comes from having the proper training – and once the national master contractors who hire mortgage field service companies are aware of your reputation, you could find yourself working from Sunday through Saturday if you want, just to handle all the properties that require servicing,” wrote Frank Patrick.  

“Once you learn the basics from a trained professional, foreclosure trash-outs are easy – and you can also hire and train additional crews to do your work for you and expand your business quickly.  What makes all the difference is having the proper training to successfully start a property preservation business,” Frank continued.

Frank Patrick also emphasizes how his nationwide franchise, REORESQ™, is helping entrepreneurs all across the country start up and successfully operate property preservation franchises.  Founded with his brother Scott, they have already trained many franchisees and launched incredibly successful property preservation careers for people who had never done that kind of work before. 

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.
