Do some research about agents in your area that specialize in listing bank owned properties by looking thru local real estate magazines and newspapers. Agents usually advertise these properties as "investor specials, bank owned, corporate owned or REO's". Introduce yourself in person to those agents and give them your contact information, card etc. It is hard to find good help these days and putting a face with name makes you look more professional and eager to work. Good luck.

There are two ways to get REO trash out work. One is to build a relationsgip with the agents that have REO's and earn their business and the other is to obtain a contract with a bank to use your services. Some banks have contracts with certain companies and require their agents to use their choices.

Target realtors that specialize in foreclosures in your geographic area first. Hit them hard and often with your marketing material so you win "mind share" in your marketing efforts.

Contact "like" businesses in your area and let them know the type of business you're in. Ask them about their business as well so you all can recommend/use each other as work flows in (set up a formal referral arrangement with them... i.e., "If I refer a job to you, I'll get X percentage of the gross of the job....")...

Contact REO asset managers at banks and mortgage companies...

Sign up with larger property preservation companies online... are you already licensed and insured? If not, handle that before you open your doors.

The "Reo" listing agents handle finding reo vendors to clean their bank owned homes, contact local reo agents in your area. Also, you can get work from the National Asset Management Companies, have your insurance and business license in hand when registering your company.
*Tip: When contacting Reo agents, offer them a discount and they might try you out, if they are happy with your services they will use you again and again

Call the brokers, big and small, and ask them who does the biggest work. Ask them if they are good, if they have used them, if they are satisfied. Get your own insurance and incorporate and tell them you are looking to do this -- any way you could get a chance with test property?

Call the real estate companies and ask them who does the bulk of the REOs in their company. Each company has their major players in the REO area. Once you have the list, contact them directly. Be ready with a menu of what you do and what you charge. If you're not getting the work, ask them to evaluate the proposal and recommend any modifications they might like to see.

Hi Pa,
I think you're asking how you get contract jobs for doing REO cleanups...what you can do is start networking that you are interested in doing this type of work with realtors in your area, talk to your bank that you do business with and see if you can talk to the person in charge of foreclosures..you can also advertise on online sites such as craigslist and zidaho. You might even want to contact some property management companies as they also need people to come in and clean when they evict someone. As for insurance and bonding, I'm not sure if you need that for doing trashout work? Not sure on that one, talk to the peson at your bank who does REO's and see if they look for that when they hire someone.
