REO Foreclosure Specialist Frank Patrick On The Importance Of Dealing With Foreclosure Delays in 2011

Frank Patrick, Property Preservation and Trash Out Specialist, recently wrote about the tough time that REO professionals experienced at the end of 2010, and how 2011 could be much better.

Scottsdale, Ariz. – January 11, 2011 – Frank Patrick, foreclosure trash-out and reo specialist, recently wrote a blog discussing how the recent robo-signing scandal caused delays for those looking to buy REO Homes.  “Foreclosures have been delayed because of the “robo-signing” scandal in which legal filings were processed by lending servicing companies without the necessary care or proper paperwork.   That put a damper on those wanting to buy REO homes, as they had no choice but to be concerned whether the foreclosures in question might be overturned,” writes Frank Patrick.

In the blog published on, called “ASREOS Blog: Looking Forward To 2011,” Frank explains, “The end of this temporary REO slowdown is near. Elizabeth Duke, Governor of the Federal Reserve, is projecting over two million more foreclosures both for 2011 and for 2012.  That means that, one way or the other, the foreclosure delays will have to be dealt with – and done away with.”

“Common sense dictates that the roadblocks will have to be removed soon – letting loose a new giant wave of REO activity that will be swamping us all.   So rest up now, all you REO pros, and get ready for a new year with a whole new start,” wrote Frank.  “Both veteran and newbie REO professionals will find a lot of value at ASREOS (the American Society of REO Specialists), including important inside info on how to get REO listings and how to become a top-producing REO agent.”
