There is an app for Android named Real Sync. It allows you to automatically send your camera pics to dropbox. This will allow you to take inspection pics with your phone and have them waiting for you at your office when you return.

Note: The cost is $4 and you need to have a free dropbox account (and Android dropbox app).

Gated communities that I have gone into I keep the gate code in my smart phone. I now have all of them and just zip though the gate. If you have a phone that crashes on you follow up the code on your computer or in a little black book that you can keep in the car.

best REO tip i can give... ignor all of the 1000's of "pay" sites trying to sell you info or lists or other BS about getting on the REO/BPO bandwagon (these sites make more money of us with that crap then they ever made doing REO's) and they are giving you NOTHING that is worth anymore then your own efforts could provide you.

I recommend having an iphone if you can. You never know when that camera is going to go out

Thanks so much for that password link! I hate trying to keep up with all of them, and am a little nervous to use the same one for everything.

I tried to think so, but i found it was not as the same in the actual process. As you mentioned, I still have doubts, but really thank you for sharing!

I have some advice for #1 in your list at the beginning of this thread about problems with the accuracy of MLS listings.

The best source is town hall records since that's the legal public record for any property.


There are lot of items to check at town hall for any property you buy, sell or renovate.

If any of you are contacted by this outfit. Be cautious.

http://www.centrislink.com/

It is run by a woman by the name of Lynnae Lake and her partner Jeff Ongsiaco. She is a very smooth talker and she will try to suck you into signing on with their company. She has an iron clad contract that will lock you in for 2 years after you leave them with a non compete clause. That will end you doing BPOs on your own. She charges 30% of your BPOs as a "fee" for signing you up with companies and to help you out if you have access issues pay issues etc.

Her invoices need a Philadelphia lawyer to understand and she will over charge and charge for orders you haven't been paid for. She insists you pay whether you have been paid by the BPO company or not. She can be very nasty and makes numerous "mistakes" on her invoices. This is just a heads up for all you who do BPOs.

I was with her with another company she owned with a different partner. That company was known as Crosscountrybpos. I heard from the partner that she absconded with the company books and all the company money leaving her elderly partner holding the bag for all taxes due the government. Lake is very unscrupulous from what I observed in the time I was contracted to to Cross Country BPOS.

This is just a word to the wise.

My best tips:
- KeePass to keep track of logins/passwords
- Bookmark folder of all the login screens of my active BPO companies
- Excel spreadsheet to keep track of orders and when I get paid on them
- Text file of frequently used phrases
- Excel spreadsheet with today's date so I can quickly figure out DOM
- Same spreadsheet has formula for rent based on square footage.
- DoPDF for printing out anything as a PDF (in case the MLS PDF feature isn't working for example)
- PDFSAM - PDF Split and merge - this is awesome for splitting out the comp files for MSV
- Large monitor - Put input screen on one side and MLS PDF on the other side
- Keep each BPO in it's own folder by company

Some of these might be duplicated, but there you go :)

Any one have a tablet that works with multiple company's bpo sites? I'm looking for an on the go solution to completing BPOs other than a laptop (if any exist). I know my iphone won't work, so I'm assuming an ipad won't either (specifically to upload the pictures)

Any ideas would be helpful.

Are you sure you want to plink out a BPO on a virtual keyboard?

For exteriors, I use Google Maps to see if the numbers are on the mailbox, on the home or by the curb. I hate having to waste time locating the number or mailbox, turn around to get a better angle and all that. Google Maps also helps me find the easiest way in and the fastest way out.
