REO Specialist, Frank Patrick, Explains The Upcoming Need For More REO Agents

Frank Patrick, Property Preservation and Foreclosure Trash Out Specialist, writes how the coming increase in new foreclosures will create a huge opportunity for reo agents, reo sellers and other reo professionals. 

Scottsdale, Ariz. – May 10, 2010 – According to a recent article written by Frank Patrick, foreclosure trash-out and reo specialist, many in the real estate industry predict recovery can only come if there are enough trained REO agents available who know how to properly handle and sell the properties that are likely to flood the market throughout 2010. 

In the artilcle on, called “REO Listings: More Foreclosures, More REO Sales,” Frank Patrick explains how the latest numbers regarding foreclosures and REO properties indicate that it’s still an incredible time to become an REO agent and learn how to get REO listings – as there is certainly no shortage of bank-owned properties on the market. 

Frank writes, “The fact is that tens of thousands of loans are coming to foreclosure. And, because of the government simplifying the process, the actual foreclosures will happen twice as fast as in the past – so more REO properties will become available quicker.”  

“There are still about 5 million delinquent home loans out there that will be hitting the foreclosure stage soon.  The big banks are expecting foreclosures to really skyrocket near the end of 2010,” continued Frank. 

Frank emphasizes that those interested in making real money in the real estate industry should investigate how to become an REO agent and how to get REO listings. “Agents with the expertise to do BPO’s (Broker Price Opinions) and handle REO homes will find there is a continuing thriving market with buyers lining up to get a bargain on a home,” remarked Frank.
