Trash Out Company REO RESQ Founder, Frank Patrick, Explains How Property Preservation Can Help Neighborhoods Recover

Frank Patrick, founder of field service company and property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, writes how a properly secured foreclosure can help make a huge difference to a neighborhood. 

Scottsdale, Ariz. – April 28, 2010 – In a recent blog post by Frank Patrick, one of the country’s top property preservation and trashout experts, Frank discusses how foreclosed and abandoned homes are causing neighborhood blight across the country at an alarming rate.  In the blog titled “Property Preservation: Helping Neighborhoods Recover,” Frank describes how having these foreclosed properties properly secured and maintained can make a huge difference in the safety and value of these neighborhoods.

“We all know that property preservation is the biggest foreclosure business opportunity. But it’s also the most important. As I’ve written before, property preservation helps neighborhoods be safer and more secure. Abandoned homes are currently adding to community blight all across the country,” wrote Frank Patrick.  

“The slowness of the financial institutions that own these homes to deal with them has been frustrating to cities everywhere. So they’ve tried to take matters into their own homes. Unfortunately, they’ve just replaced the bureaucratic inefficiency of these financial institutions with their own bureaucratic inefficiency,” Frank continued. 

Citing scenarios in New York City and San Francisco, Frank points out how some local governments are overwhelmed by the number of foreclosed properties and have found it extremely difficult to keep the properties maintained.  

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 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.
