Most borrowers failed to pay their mortgage, unable to agree on a work out plan or did not keep their part of the bargain. Such ordeals have left lenders with tons of repossessed properties. Unfortunately, they will not profit from these properties unless they sell them; a perfect job for the real estate agents.

One of the profiting mechanisms of REO is the BPO (Broker’s Price Opinion). This is a report that lenders rely on to value their REO properties.

An agent is paid by the BPO he makes. If you are an expert in BPO, you will earn significantly.

Lenders will also need people to maintain the properties. Sometimes, they need to be repaired and updated to improve chances of a sale. This is another opportunity that agents can exploit. They can even work with contractors and builders for these projects.
