Property Preservation Company REO RESQ™ Founder, Frank Patrick, Discusses the Increasing Need for More Foreclosure Clean Outs

Frank Patrick, founder of field service company and property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, writes about increasing property preservation business opportunities in recent article. 

Scottsdale, Ariz. – February 12, 2010 – In a recent article by Frank Patrick, one of the country’s top property preservation and mortgage field service experts, Frank reflects on the property preservation industry boom of 2009, and the incredible opportunities that 2010 will provide for field service companies, property preservation contractors, and trash out businesses.

Frank’s recent article, “The 2010 Property Preservation Business Opportunity,” explains how property preservation is already an incredibly lucrative business, for those who know what they’re doing.  Nationwide franchise, REO ResQ™, begun about a year ago by foreclosure experts Frank and Scott Patrick, has been training those who want to start a property preservation company in the special demands of this business opportunity. 

“The problem of vacant homes in otherwise normal neighborhoods is a big one and growing by leaps and bounds. In addition to these empty untended homes becoming eyesores, thanks to uncared-for lawns, broken windows and graffiti, they also pose public health dangers,” wrote Frank Patrick.  

“That’s why, more and more, local communities and governments have been demanding property preservation companies be hired to handle these vacant houses – and why, more and more, property preservation will continue to be the biggest foreclosure business opportunity in 2010,” Frank 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.
