Have any of you ever dealt with REO companies? Even if you havent, give your opinion on this deal. I have dealt with one of these companies before but this one is a bit different. First, REO companies are companies that specialize in maintaining homes, mostly that are going through the foreclosure process. Many times, these homes are overgrown and need to be cleaned up before regular service. So, yes, there will be some PITAs every so often that I will need a brush hog to cleanup, yes the lawns will come and go, but a lot of them stay around for months at a time before they are sold. REO companies also specialize in trash outs (a potential winter money maker for us LCOs) So, here's the deal: And REO company contacted me yesterday and said he has a few LCOs taking care of his properties but wants to consolidate them into one company, understandable. He has 20 lawns to offer me right off the bat. Now, the main reason he wants to consolidate is because the company is growing. He said he expects to have 70-100 properties at any given time by the end of the year. He also approached me about doing trashouts during the winter season, which would be a nice income to have while lawns are monthly. The way I see it, his growth is a potential growth for myself. If any of you had this opportunity, would you go for it or pass?
