Have you ever heard of the mortgage field services industry? Well, it has been around for as long as people have been purchasing homes via mortgage loans.
By law, whenever a mortgaged property is more than 45 days behind in the mortgage payment, the mortgage company is required to generate a work order to send a property inspector to the address to determine if the property is either occupied or vacant, and the general condition of the property.
On average, it takes about 5 to 10 minutes per work order inspection.
There are 6 core photos involved; Front, Address, Neighborhood, Street Sign and Two Occupancy Indicator photos.
Some work orders require you to take a photo of a letter you leave in the crack of the door.
If vacant, you take photos of all four sides and the utilities to help prove that the property is vacant. Your work order may require you to take photos of the interior using a lockbox or keys provided to you by your client to gain entry. Most of the job is using your cell phone to take photos. No collections or financial inquiries of any sort are involved.
At the end of this online course you will know how to conduct property inspections and will be Certified as a Mortgage Field Service Property Inspector.

Why is This Course Free?
Free-With a Donation Request at the end of the course. A donation is not required to receive certification, but would be much appreciated. Hey, it's only asking for a few bucks. The average is $26 donation but if you only want to donate $10 or $15 or $20 bucks, that's fine too. The company who sent you to this course has nothing to do with it except for wanting their new hires to be certified.
With over 30 years experience, the author of this free course feels that there are way too many mortgage field inspectors out there that don't have a clue why they do what they are doing, or what even gives them the authority to do what they're doing. Most hiring companies just give you a short instruction manual and throw you out there. That's not the way to start a business that could potentially lead to a new full time career. If you are going to get into this industry, learn how to do it right. But why is it free? The author depends on the generosity of students to make a donation, only if they feel they received value out of this course. You can donate any amount you would like, or none at all. It's entirely up to you. If you make a donation, Thank You! If not, please enjoy the learning experience and our hopes are that it will make you a better field inspector.
