REO listings are lists of Real Estate Owned put up by banks for the use of prospective buyers or REO brokers.
Not all REO is listed publicly, though accessing the lender’s REO pages is a good way for beginner REO brokers to get business. Cold calling asset management companies is also an option that you may exercise. Banks will also agree to send you REO listings for a certain fee, while certain online directories allow you to access all REO listings for a certain area with one single subscription.
However, the best and most coveted REO properties can only be obtained through contacts, networking and influence.
The best way to remember the keys to accessing confidential and prized REO listings – or the key to success in any business, can be called the “Two Ps”:
Patience is a prerequisite for any business. Keeping a cool head will ensure that you do not make any rash decisions, and do not end up spreading yourself too thin in desperation. You may choose to try and monopolize a little-known area, or to try and find jobs with a bank or lending institution.
If you are the sort of person who can get people who do things for you, use that quality to your advantage. With proper PR, you can get yourself in the good books of a particular bank, perhaps even landing a job as their REO agent.
