Hello Dana,
I am an Asset Manager for many of the major banks. While some REO realtors do give out cleaning contracts the majority of banks have national contractors. I would recommend visiting or and signing up with a national vendor who will then sub the work out to you. Believe me, I do this everyday for thousands of assets nationwide and there are tons of people trying to figure out a way to get in the game. Those who are trying now in many cases are too late. However, cleaning contracts are different and national contractors are always looking for good licensed people. I am also a REALTOR and Broker in San Diego, CA. Thanks

I'm not sure how to get cleaning contracts for something like this. I would begin by asking the bank on how you would get something like that. They should know what to do and who you can call. I would definitely start by calling them and seeing what they say!

I would take the time to look at who is listing these homes on the market and ask them to register you on there vendor list. Or Sign up at REO Network as a vendor. You will have to be licensed and bonded.

Contact realtors who specialize in foreclosures (easy to find; go to your local multiple listing service (MLS) and scour homes). Also, acquiring institutions of failed banks are fertile ground... see an editorial at link below that talks about this ("How to Earn More Money in Your Foreclosure Cleanup Business")...

Also, investors, landlords and home owners associations are good contacts for work... of course, larger companies (property preservation companies) are solid contacts... (see editorial entitled, "How to Tap Larger Firms to Grow Your Foreclosure Cleanup Business.")

Property preservation companies take longer to pay, but you can land bulk with these companies, which can help put your business on the map... they tend to pay less and again, you will wait longer to get paid, but there are ways around cash flow issues -- using a factor. See article entitled, "How to Keep Cash Flowing Into Your Foreclosure Cleanup Business."

Again, visit industry link below that will guide you in all aspects of starting your biz. We've put out enough FREE info on industry... enough for you to read and be sure you want to get into our industry, before you spend money on any program. Sincerely, much success to you in Detroit ... :)

That depends on which bank has foreclosed the property. Sometimes, the bank has a contract with a certain company to do the clean outs, sometimes, the bank will have the listing agents choose. You can go to the website of the banks and most of them have a site where you can petition to work with them. Have good testimonies ready and make sure you know the procedures/laws working as a clean out contractor for banks.

I was going to suggest the same thing. Going through the banks is probably the fastest way to get involved with foreclosure cleaning. As long as you have experience with residential cleaning, you should be able to get on their list. After that, it's just a matter of building up your reputation.

While we do have local agents as clients you may want to try and get approval from a company called
Field Asset Services. They contract with the bank and sub to you for foreclosure cleanup work.

Go direct to the agent. I have plenty of REO accounts that will allow me to contract my own cleaning crew. Make sure you have adequate insurance and have a good system of accountability as any good agent will hold you to all the work you do.

Contact asset managers at banks, foreclosure realtors and definitely sign up with other property preservation companies that have listings in several states. Tons of foreclosure cleanup job vendor applications available online. Some foreclosure cleanup job leads in the article below.

Good luck!

I'll tell you what: I would love to see someone come and get my house cleaned. It is a nightmare right now. With four kids and the wife sick, things tend to build up. There's just too much to clean up if both of us aren't on task. These kids are like little tornadoes. I'm tempted to call a business just to see how far they get.
