REO services keep the property maintained and secure.
Real Estate Owned (REO) Services
As the market for REO services has increased in the aftermath of the nation’s housing crisis, Safeguard has become a leader in maintaining the REO assets of its clients to protect the value and help improve the marketability of properties.
Previously, the task of maintaining REO properties had been left to real estate agents under contract to sell the property. However, separating the marketing and maintenance responsibilities allows real estate agents and field service companies to focus on what each does best. Real estate agents can focus on selling properties, and field service companies can focus on keeping the property maintained and secure.
Safeguard has led the industry in developing processes to improve the timeliness and quality of service performed. Most importantly, we established an effective triangle of communication between Safeguard, its contractors and the property’s real estate agents, which results in additional checks and balances to help assure that REO properties remain in the best condition possible to reduce time on the market and improve the value and desirability of properties.
