National lending, leasing and insurance institutions have vested interests in homes, cars, commercial property, businesses, trucks, RVs, boats, or any entity requiring financing or insurance. These institutions need to have continuously updated and accurate information on the condition of this property. It is simply not cost effective for them to have their own "reps" in every single town (zip code) in the United States. So, these institutions sub-contract out this work to freelance "reps" (like you) all over the country.
Since most financing, insurance policies, mortgages, leases, etc. are now completed online, or via 800 telephone numbers, the need for these institutions to maintain "brick and mortar" offices and high salaried "company reps" on a local basis has decreased dramatically. This is where our industry comes in! You will effectively become a representative for 100’s of national companies who need not only "pre-sale" information, but constantly updated "property condition" photos and reports as well.
