Cleaning Up Foreclosures: Making the Right Contacts

By Foreclosurecash Subscribe to RSS | January 31st 2012 | Views:

Many people are interested in making money by starting their own cleaning business these days. A lot of them are looking to venture into the foreclosure clean up business also known as the property preservation industry. Understandably so, as this industry has taken off, and there is enough room for everyone to get involved providing property preservation services for foreclosed properties. As the number of foreclosures continues to rise, and houses are left abandoned, the need for cleaning experts in the field is huge. Starting your own foreclosure cleaning business is the easy part. Finding the right contacts is one of the more difficult parts.

Some of your biggest customers are going to be banks, and REO realtors. These are the people who hire the cleaning businesses. The problem though is that they always use national contractors, known as master contractors. These are the big companies that can reach all across the United States. The trick that most people fail to realize, is that contacting the banks and realtors can be a waste of time. Most of the time, they have no idea who to contact or what direction to point you in. This is one of the most uncertain parts of starting a successful foreclosure clean up business.

The easiest way to get foreclosures that need work coming straight to you is by signing up with a national vendor, who will in turn sub-contract the work out to you. These large companies that take on the work, commonly do this as a way to save themselves time and money. In the process you get local work that can pay high amounts of money. It’s a win-win for everyone involved, and you find a way to get consistent work.

Advertising your business is huge when it comes to the cleaning business. There are many people just like you who are interested in starting their own small business, and usually they do. After a few months they give up, and someone else takes their place. In order to cement your business in the game, you have to be willing to put in the time to advertise your business everywhere you go. Create a name for yourself, and back it up with reliability and trust. These bigger companies love hiring cleaning businesses with a good track record to take care of their foreclosed properties.

The Internet is your friend. There are so many websites that make it much easier for you to submit your business information to the right people. Making contacts in this digital age is an easy thing to do. In most cases, an e-mail will suffice with a simple message stating who you are, and what your business can provide them with. You also want to sign up with any vendor lists available out there. This way when a bank or realtor needs something cleaned, they know where to find you. A good recommendation is signing up at the REO network. This is one of the well known vendor websites that will attract the right attention to your business. Make sure your business is licensed and you actually understand what is required in the foreclosure cleaning business before you do any of this work.

Contacting the right people to get your foreclosure clean up business off the ground is essential to making it work, and creating a viable small business. Understanding the business is very important. Develop a good rapport, and identity, and let it be known that you’re reliable and trustworthy. If you take the time to put your cleaning business out there, I promise you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the results. Work will come flowing to you, and you can then begin making a good amount of money providing these property preservation services on the foreclosed homes in your surrounding area.
