Bratkl - Not with all but with most foreclosed homes the lender never makes any type of repairs to the home prior to selling the property but sells the property "as-is" where is. It would be the responsibilty of the new home owner or investor to make any necessary repairs after the purchase. So your best bet would be to market your services and build a business realtionship with agents that have foreclosed home on the market. That way when a home closes that needs repairs you can ask the listing agent to refer your services to the buyers agent or if the listing agent has the buyer as well, hopefully they'll throw you the bone. You could also (although it may be tougher this way) market your services directly to lenders..you want to get your information to the asset manager of the bank. Again some lenders may make repairs to a property especially if the defect is something that is a health hazard or needs immediate repairs..(i.e. broken windows, plumbing leaks, etc.) If there is anything else I can do for you please feel free to let me know.
