Property Preservation

Our Property Preservation Department provides a full range of field services which can be customized into packages that allow clients to choose the services that best suit their needs. We are continually focused on creating greater efficiencies in our property preservation process, resulting in faster turn times and reduced pre-marketing times for our clients.
In addition, we maintain controls to ensure the highest level of quality is achieved on each property. We employ a multi-tier quality assurance program that focuses on vendors completing work in accordance with American Property Shield standards and client requirements. Our goal is to maintain properties so they appear indistinguishable from owner occupied properties.

Securing / Initial Rekeys

If a property is found vacant, we will secure the property to include: changing locks on exterior doors, installing lock box (coded per client requirements), boarding windows or doors as needed, securing entrance gates.

Cash for Keys

Once our client has negotiated a Cash for Keys settlement and arranged a date and time for the meeting, we will advance and distribute the funds, exchange funds for keys and secure the property by changing all exterior property, posting emergency contact notice, securing pool if applicable, and providing photos of completed work.

Debris / Trash removal

Removal of all debris from the interior and exterior of the property, hazardous material, any outside items that detract from curb appeal (Christmas lights, dog houses, etc.), and vehicles are towed.

Initial Lawn Cut

Initial lawn service is completed to the highest standards, providing curb appeal and pride of ownership. Initial lawn service includes mowing the front, sides, and back yard of the property, weed eating, shrub trimming, edging, weeding flower beds, and removal of clippings.

Sales Clean

Our sales cleans are performed with great detail, transforming the interior of the property into move-in-ready condition. Our thorough interior sales clean includes: vacuum carpets, wet mop vinyl and tile floors, clean all sinks, cabinets, countertops, commodes, bathtubs and showers. In addition, all appliances are emptied and cleaned and air fresheners are placed on sinktops.


To ensure a property is safe and secure, we will remove all broken glass from damaged windows. Windows will then be boarded according to HUD specifications.

Personal Property Handling

We are experienced in handling the disposition of personal property in accordance with client specifications and with state and local requirements. We offer the service of consolidating personal belongings (PB) into one room. This process includes consolidating all PB into a separately secured room, and handling its proper disposition.


Our team will meet with local law enforcement, rekey the property, and manage personal belongings in accordance with state laws.
