What Is Property Preservation?

[paiddownloads id=”8″]

This manual is intended to give the reader a well rounded and thorough picture of the many requirements, procedures and activities which a property preservation contractor can expect to come their way. It is not intended to give you all the ins and outs of property preservation but rather to cover the whole field lightly in one manual.

The manual covers what other authors’ manuals do not cover and it will give you a clear and broad view of the industry. The information is presented in an easy to read and easy to understand “story telling” style. The narrator is Mr Preservation and he is discussing the industry with you one-on-one.

Chapter 1 sets the stage for the rest of the manual and is an introduction that starts with a chapter on the birth and history of the industry and then moves on to give a direct answer to the question at hand, “What Is Property Preservation?” The chapter ends with an explanation of the foreclosure process from which comes the majority of property preservation work.

Chapter 2 discusses 12 topics and 11 sources of property preservation jobs for contractors. Some of these sources are seldom if ever mentioned by anyone anywhere.

Chapter 3 contains the majority of information in the manual. In the chapter, 29 of the most common tasks associated with the property preservation industry are well explained. These 29 discussions offer further understanding of what property preservation really is; what property preservation contractors actually do on a day to day basis.

If you are interested in more-in-depth coverage of a topic you will find additional Mr Preservation™ publications on a variety of topics. They are available as PDF downloads at www.mrpreservation.com and in Kindle format at the Mr Preservation Amazon Author Page. You can always go to www.amazon.com and search for “Mr Preservation” in the Kindle Store.

Everything changes quickly. There is probably some information missing from this manual but you will find that it is the most comprehensive publication out there that really goes to lengths to answer the question “what is property preservation?”

Since everything does change, the manual has a dedicated website at www.whatispropertypreservation.com.In addition to excerpts from the manual, the website has a list of revisions you may want to look at on occasion.
