Do banks need housesitters for foreclosed homes? To show to potential buyers and keep clean etc?

Asked by Shane, British Columbia Tue Sep 30, 2008

I own a motel in BC, Canada. My brother works for 6 months, then I work for 6 months. On my off time I usually travel out of country but this time around am looking for something like housesitting on my off-time this trip.. Im extremely clean, responsible, financially secure, 33, single, not a partier, healthy and in shape. I can literally be anywhere. I am very good at selling and am extremely comfortable dealing with people on any level. Any ideas?

What you're describing is actually the duties of a property manager/Realtor. The electricity and utilities are usually turned off in REO properties so living in a foreclosure is really not feasible.

Make your home best and more clean if possible paint your home with low budget, this may look your home very new and attractive and can bargain better sum

A great idea but unfortanately the bank wants the houses vacant, they already hire an assett manager to evict anyone fronm the home, get it cleans and prepared for sale and then to sell the property at the bets price in the quickest amount of time.

GREAT QUESTION: No the bank does not want to deal with people living in homes, liablity issues, potential property damage.
