REO Progress Part 7

Real Estate Agent with SJC Real Estate

Happy Sunday to you all, well yesterday we had to do our first out of town BPO's. Two different companies called us and asked us to do them a favor, we of course said sure. One was a Gas Station commercial property in South Lake Tahoe CA. I have done my fair share of commercial deals, but this was our first commercial BPO. I cant lie it was a tough one (to find comps) but had great luck searching on Biz Ben and found some gas station brokers who gave me a had. The other one was in Murphy's CA, nice little townhouse style property in the heart of the foothills. The drives were great and we had a great time together just talking and site seeing. What a great business we are have, one that will take us to new places and get paid to do it. We did these BPO because they asked and could tell everyone was turning them down so we did not hesitate to say sure we can help. The good thing is they both stated we will get the REO listing if the bank takes it back (both are in NOD). So you see it pays to help others and not always just think of how much it will be a pain your ass to help them

Hey Brian, that is great and I hope that you get the listing. I have done a few BPO's  in the Tahoe area (all residential) and I have taken my wife on a few. We enjoy the trip, have a nice lunch, do a little business and head home. They can be a great break in a busy schedule, it is fun to hear that others are doing the same.

What company are you doing BPO's with?
