We have seen a few on properties we have serviced for months or years. They seem to be selling faster and the Nats are still sending out orders for them.
Maybe it's just our area but things seem different.
Most of the sales now are CASH Buyers, speeds of the process and the servicers are the last to know. Im seeing a lot of these occupied property's in NC, GA much more so than we use to see. What Ive been really floored with is the tenant occupied property's that they are asking me to service. Ive got 7 on my desk now that were foreclosed on and the owner had tenants renting them with a lease that the bank is stuck with until the lease runs out. 3 are replacing gas water heaters, 2 are roof leaks.and the other 2 are plumbing issues.
The big boss calls my me on my cell at 7:30 Friday nite and wants them done asap. All BATF they don't care what the cost are, just get my as* out their fix-um he says. The boss never calls me... unless the crap hits the fan, you really cant touch nothing in NC AND GA without a license.
Turns out they sent a yahoo out to replace the GAS water heaters and installed the wrong type, they were suppose to be Directional vented threw the side of the house. So the tenants call the gas company because they smell gas days after the the install and they cut the gas off right away. The National never told the client what they did so i get to fix them, of course i was nice about it, did ask why didn't you call me in the first place, so i just flat fee them at $1979.21
Looks like im in the tenant business now, but im going to do a flat fee on everything because of having to deal with tenants.
Also i wanted to ask if you got the email about Everhome cancellations. They sent me a list of cancellation on properties i haven't serviced in months. You know I still don't get why they keep me active, Jeez, life has been so much easier with-out them.
