How to Start a Foreclosure Cleanup-Property Preservation Business

Have you always wanted to start a foreclosure cleanup or property preservation business? This year alone there is expected to be over 4 Million homes foreclosed on nationally! Banks desperately need vendors to cleanup and maintain their bank repos!


This is a very easy business to actually start. First, of course you will need a business license and general liability insurance. The banks require all of their vendors to sign up with them directly and you will need both of these to sign up, also you will need to submit a signed w-9 form to them and a copy of your drivers license, as you are paid as an independent contractor. The banks call vendors that cleanup and repair their foreclosure properties property preservation vendors. Banks pay an average of $500 to upwards of $10,000 per property to trashout and maintain before they get ready to put it onto the market for resell.
