It's all about knowing who to contact or who to have contacting you...

There are national preservation companies that you could sign up with and be a vendor with them practically over night.

You could network and market with REO brokers.

The banks hire/sub contract out the work to local companies to do this work.

After these properties are foreclosed and do not sell at auction, they become REO's and they are assigned to a real estate broker. Most large banks have their own companies that will come and winterize, trashout, and rekey the property. If you are just now looking into starting a clean up business, competition will be extremely high. Most banks already have teams in place to perform the work and they are not looking for outside contractors and trashout crews. You will need to sign on with a preservation company to land these jobs. Simply trying to contact a bank or listing agent on a specific house will not be worth your while. Please let me know if you have any other questions or real estate needs. Thank you!
