Field Service Company, REO RESQ, Founder, Frank Patrick, Highlights This Decades New Business Opportunity: Property Preservation

Frank Patrick, founder of foreclosure trash-out company and property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, writes how it is now a great time to start a property preservation company. 

Scottsdale, Ariz. – May 3, 2010 – In a recent blog post by Frank Patrick, one of the country’s top property preservation and mortgage field service experts, Frank discusses how property preservation has become one of the biggest business opportunities of the decade.  Frank explains how, in today’s economic culture, the average American worker can no longer put their faith in just being employed by big companies.  Downsizing and economic fluctuations cause the job market to be unstable at best.  However, Frank argues that this time of economic uncertainty is actually providing one of the best opportunities for people to start their own business – and a great time to make that business the property preservation business.

In the blog titled “Property Preservation: The New Business For The New Decade,” Frank describes how “in this era of record-setting home mortgage defaults, property preservation is the biggest foreclosure business opportunity in America today.” 

“The banks that end up owning foreclosed homes need them cleaned out, repaired and brought back to market quickly so they can mitigate their mortgage losses. In addition, communities and local governments are demanding that vacant homes be secured and taken care of, before they become safety and health risks, not to mention posing a threat to a neighborhood’s property values and attractiveness,” wrote Frank Patrick.  

“That means a good property preservation company ends up working around the clock to keep up with the demand. Note that I said “good” – because many untrained people are attempting to get into this business that don’t know the special demands of it. Insurance costs, licensing issues, and the expectations of the master contractors that generally hire property preservation companies are all difficult to deal with if you haven’t been educated about them.” Frank continued. 

Frank’s emphasizes how his nationwide franchise, REORESQ™, is helping entrepreneurs all across the country start up and successfully operate property preservation franchises. “Start-up is affordable, training is fast (usually two weeks) and the demand for your services will be strong,” remarks Frank. 

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.
