A Security Solution for REOs
Posted on 24 April 2009
I recently wrote a blog entitled “Squatters Increasingly Calling Foreclosures Home” about advocacy groups that are actively helping homeless people around the country move into foreclosed properties that are empty and all but abandoned by the banks that own them. This was a very controversial topic, and many of my readers had strong opinions on one side or another of the issue. There is concensus, however, in the feeling that the banks are not doing enough to secure their REO properties. Well now there is a solution, at least for those in the Los Angeles area.
This week I was at the weekly team meeting at the Keller Williams office in Marina del Rey pitching a free Home Staging for Success course I’m going to be giving there next week. One of the agents, Reggie Potts, came up to talk to the group about a new company he’s launching called REO Secure. REO Secure will do everything from installing smoke detectors to rekeying the locks, boarding up the windows and strapping the water heater. The company is based in Culver City, but they serve the whole LA area.
If you know an agent, bank or asset manager that has REO listings, please forward this important information along to them. And if you’re ready to call REO Secure, their number is 310-251-1773.
