America's Largest Social Network for Default Real Estate Professionals
I received a call from a contact a Single Source Property to inquire about how many BPO orders can I handle at once. It appears that they are going to be doing a direct assignment starting in March. As we continued to talk I was probing around volume and if it would return to it's previous levels. He informed me that they are expecting a large bulk order in March. Then, I received a call from LPS-LSI yesterday in regard to a similar situation. So, I also asked about volume since they were one of my largest vendors to date. I was also informed that they are also expecting a large (10,000+) bulk order starting next Friday. I'm hoping that these are the signs that illustrate that the BPO volume will return. Best of luck to all of my BPO agents here on REOPRO.
Thanks for the information how long have you been with single source? Do you know if they accepting new applicants?
Hi Irfan, I have been working with Single Source since 2007. However, they do accept new applicants on a case-by-case scenario. They also assign listings to their most productive agents. To date, I have listed about 10 properties for them (Not very impressive for 5 years, but better than "0") since I've been on-board. I'd encourage you to register and I will see if I can bring your name up to a few contacts I have within the company.
Don't forget about me Chris :)
Thanks Chris I did send my resume to them , That is very nice of you to do that for me I been in the BPOS for three years now. I really liked your style of executing BPO's . I just hired an assistant so my BPOs are increasing now and looking forward to expanding my business.
Thanks Chris, for faster review I cover WA, King and Pierce Counties.
I was wondering if you can help me. I have recently done some BPO's for them but have been approved by them for quite sometime. I have not received a single REO but wonder if you get me introduce. My best regards.
Just letting you know I am from Chicago Market Covering Cook Dupage Mchenry counties.
I has been on board with the for a while as well, but I received very few BPOs and the QC is a nightmare. They also pay low? What I recentely received is an e-mail asking me if I do commercial properties. What do you know about their Commercial BPOs? I do defenitely do commercial BPOs. They hopefully pay better than residentials. I'd like to get in to commercial REOs if they have it.
If you want to do commercial BPOs, you need to invest in belonging to LoopNet and the like for comps. It is a different animal but it does pay more. To me, it is far and inventory will be low to be worth the time to be train and the membership fees to these sites you have to belong to. But who knows, you may be the only broker in our area that does it and you may get them down the road as an REO, which will be worth your time and money.
Hugo, I can't say that I have any issues with QC. Initially I needed to understand what their QC dept was looking for in comparison to other QC vendor departments. I've found, like with any company, if the report is properly noted QC will not reject the order. I was told that my initial BPO approval rate, turn around time and QC revision request is what spotlighted me as an REO agent within the database. My guess is they monitor that performance closely and go from there. To answer your question, I do not know about their commercial aspect. I wish you the best in acquiring future business from them on either the residential or commercial side.
We work with them, they do what they say. Are you going to get rich, maybe not, but they will pay you and that should be your main concern.
