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.
For example: If someone from your hometown goes online and applies for a home loan from a national mortgage company in New York, Atlanta or Los Angeles. This mortgage company may require some digital photos and a few measurements of the property before processing the loan. It is simply not cost effective for them to fly someone to your hometown for this 15 minute photography and measuring job. This is where you’d come in. Are you starting to see the potential here? Thanks to internet and 1-800 companies, there is already an extreme shortage of local "reps" nationwide, and the need is growing exponentially. These companies will be happy to hear from you once you are ready to accept assignments.
To put all of this in perspective, just try to imagine ALL of the people in YOUR LOCAL AREA who are getting loans… Read more…
