Trash Out Company REO RESQ Founder, Frank Patrick, Discusses the “Powering Up” of Property Preservation

Frank Patrick, founder of foreclosure clean out and property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, explains how more competition in the property preservation industry will increase standards and opportunities.

Scottsdale, Ariz. – September 14, 2010 – In a recent article by Frank Patrick, one of the country’s top foreclosure trash out experts, Frank explains how higher property preservation standards means more business opportunity.  In the article titled “Foreclosure Trash Outs: Powering Up Property Preservation,” Frank describes how property perseveration companies find themselves more in demand than ever and that this trend will continue.

“The inventory of foreclosures continues to increase and to reach more record-breaking heights in 2010.  Banks are still dealing with their huge backlog of these vacant homes, as well as all the many new foreclosures still occurring due to the weak economy.  That’s added up to a ‘perfect storm’ when it comes to the incredible number of vacant homes that require foreclosure trash outs,” wrote Frank Patrick.

“Interestingly enough, it’s also become about more than performing those basic foreclosure trash outs.  With REO (Real Estate Owned) properties becoming more and more prevalent – and distressed properties comprising almost a third of all real estate sales so far in 2010 – it’s no longer enough to market a foreclosure whose main selling point is the fact that it’s cheaper than a comparable home being sold by its owner,” Frank continued.

Frank’s nationwide franchise, REORESQ™, is helping entrepreneurs all across the country start up and successfully operate property preservation franchises.  Frank believes that 2010 will provide incredible opportunities for field service companies, property preservation contractors, and trash out businesses.

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 was recently featured in Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today for his expertise and success in the REO Sales and REO agent training industry.
