America's Largest Social Network for Default Real Estate Professionals
I'm in MA, I have registered with USRES and completed a few free BPO's for them, with the promise that after completing a minimum of 5 I would be considered for listing assignments. Has anyone passed that step yet? I don't mind doing some freebee's but I certainly don't want to continue working for free, if that is not a true statement.....
As to CAM, is anyone in a non-competing market who is willing to share some experience/info...???
Happy New Year to all
I am in Kissimmee,Florida which is located in Osceola County. I have been doing BPO's and REO's for USRES for over a year & a half now but they have not sent me anything in the last 6 months. When I first started doing these free bee's I was told it was a 15 to1 ratio, I have done over 60 BPO's and have gotten 3 listings from them,unfortunetly they have all been cheap little listings of 35k-60k prices which does not bring much of a commission and lately they have been telling me that they don't have any inventory in my area.
The people that I have delt with from USRES all have been very nice to deal with which is not always the case with this type of assets. I will also say that dealing with REO's is not as easy as it may seem and can get very expensive,usually you have to rekey the property and maintain the utilities on in your name. With the properties that I have done from USRES, they have done the trash outs and the cleaning of the properties which is not always the case with some Banks and asset managers, some times you have to shell out alot of your many and wait for them to re-emburse you later,some later than others. Good Luck and Hang in there,hopefully you will get something soon.
Thanks Angel, for your elaborate response.
I have been doing BPO's and listing REO"s for other asset management companies for about 4 years now. So, I am very familiar with the entire process, from A to Z, and all the variables one encounters with each asset and each client.
My concern with USRES - being a new client to me, and given its prerequisites and entitlement structure - was to hear testimonials from anyone who had the exposure to the company and was willing to share its merits and shortfalls.
I am glad to know that USRES delivers as promised, taking into account that workflow will obviously vary in nature and frequency, from market to market, from time to time.
I know I am in the dark still..I have done 75 free reports in the past year...nada, zilch...NYC and Nassau
Rafael, thanks for the feedback. It's been incredible the number of responses - so far mostly positive ones - received in reference to USRES and the way the company conducts business in the BPO/REO world.
I am continuing to accept their solicitation to provide free BPO's, hopefully soon I'll find a listing assignment in my inbox....
did you ever get that listing?
