Sometimes the real estate companies take over the property management and sometimes the mortgage company has someone.
To get new business you would need to market to both
Good Luck to you

If you're already operating a service business--a lawn service business in your case--you're already 80% of the way there.

For information on cleaning and janitorial businesses, including niche businesses, go to http://www.bscai.org.

For marketing, you'll really use many of the same marketing techniques you're already doing. They should be directed to the listing agents, not to the banks. And, again, http://www.bscai.org has some good resources.

The numbers that are sometimes quoted--the "up to $2,500 per property"--are generally quite optimistic. A real estate agent with an REO listing (on which he or she probably will receive a reduced commission for more than the average amount of work) isn't likely to spend a whole lot of money on a property trash out.
