Your best bet is to partner with the companies that already have the relationships in place such as safeguard, AMS etc. Too many people want to cut out the middle man but forget this is a tough business and it is almost impossible to get in with the banks directly. So get with the agents assigned to the properties and the middle man as well. Too many of these mom and pop operations are very poorly run and lack basic business principles. Attention to detail is the key.

You might begin by calling various real estate companies and asking for the agent who handles the HUD, Homepath, Wells Fargo....whatever properties. Then ask them is they do the hiring for these jobs (or more likely, bid accepting) and what the requirements are to be able to put in an offer.

Just be careful you dont invest too much into this. 

While I understand its a tempting business now.... there is a glut of these companies out there. 

In a few years when the banks and everyone gets their systems down and have methods in place... a lot of these "mom & pop" property preservation companies will be out of business.  There just won't be the amount of work to go around that there is now and it will all be in the hand of the large nationwide companies that have financial backing and a network of providers.
