Property Preservation Companies Have a Surplus of Government Jobs and Foreclosure Clean-Up Contracts
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Cassandra_Black]Cassandra Black
Larger property preservation companies care for thousands of homes throughout the United States. These larger companies seek out smaller vendors who service various zip codes for property preservation jobs. It's not uncommon for small real estate services businesses to receive ten to twenty work orders at one time, which can equal tens of thousands of dollars in jobs and small business contracts.
Lenders and financial institutions hire foreclosure cleaning companies to inspect, trashout, clean, and care for the interior and exterior of vacant homes while they are sitting empty - and homes are sitting empty longer and longer into today's stagnant market.
High U.S. Home Vacancy Rates Mean More Jobs and Small Business Contracts for Foreclosure Clean-up Businesses and Real Estate Services Enterprises
Today, homes are sitting empty longer and longer. According to a recent Census Bureau report, the nation's vacancy rate is at 11.4%.
This means long-term contracts and evergreen help wanted outlets for real estate services businesses and foreclosure cleaning companies poised to seek out subcontracts.
The state of Maine had a 22.8% vacancy rate, the largest proportion of empty housing inventory. Other states were not far behind: Alaska reported 15.9%; Arizona reported 16.3%; the Sunshine State, Florida, hovered at 17.5%; and, Vermont reported a glut of empty houses, 20.5%.
Small business contracts and industry contracts for government jobs for foreclosure cleanup work can fall under the following service business umbrellas: lawn maintenance, locksmith work, debris removal, cleaning, trashouts, hauling, repair work, winterization, roof repairs, carpet cleaning and removing, window and door boarding, wood floor repair, mold and mildew contracting, broken window repair work, inspections (i.e., vacancy inspections and occupancy inspections), plumbing, electrical, HVAC, window repairs, pressure washing, gutter cleaning, and more.
How to Locate Real Estate Service and Foreclosure Clean-up Business Jobs and Contracts
A new company simply needs to reach out to as many property preservation companies as possible for jobs and contracts. Government jobs and government contracts via organizations like HUD and local housing authorities are also available online. These jobs and contracts can be found easily with a little internet digging.
Evergreen Business Opportunity, Beyond Foreclosures and Vacant Houses
The real estate services industry has been around, and will be around, as long as real estate is being bought and sold. A foreclosure clean-up business offers the same services smaller, successful contractors have been offering successfully for years: property clean-up, clear-outs, repairs and maintenance. Think about the number of lawn maintenance, and, for example, painting and handyman contractors, you see in trucks rolling around your city and town daily. They are in existence, still in business, because they are, quite simply, making money.
The new term, "foreclosure clean-up," has simply shed light on one of the oldest real estate industry professions around: real estate services. The savvy entrepreneur can start quickly today and capitalize off the plethora of property preservation job opportunities, small business contracts, and government jobs available in this ripe market right now.
Years from now, when the foreclosure craze has reached a calm, these business owners will have made all the industry contacts they need to have a successful business for years to come.
