If you are a new contractor who has just entered the property preservation industry and is
looking for work, or if you are an owner of a small preservation company and looking to expand and work with more nationals you will most probably want to know where to apply as vendors. So here I have tried to compile a list of Property Preservation Companies that are nationals that work directly with the banks and HUD and are always looking to recruit new vendors, along with links to their vendor application portal and some brief information about each company.
If you are looking for pricing of any of these nationals though you can read one of my previous blogs on the property preservation price list.

Largest Property Preservation Companies:
The largest nationals are those that have the biggest coverage throughout the states and have the most work. All of them work in both PnP and REO and relatively speaking, pay better than other nationals:
1) Mortgage Contracting Services (MCS)
MCS is one of the largest nationals at present. They work on PnP, Eviction, REO, as well as on Hazard Repairs. To become an MCS vendor, a contractor must have general liability insurance as well as E&O Insurance with a $1 million coverage limit. Their payment is also good and so far, I have not heard of any complaints from any contractors regarding any payment issue. Here is their link to their Vendor Application page.
In 2016, Servicelink had a massive change in its vendor platform. The new platform Assetshield has some drastic changes to how orders are processed from before. You can read more about that on our blog on Assethshield. To become their vendor, click on Assetshield Vendor Information.
3) Five Brothers Property Preservation Company
Although a large national company, there have been some complaints regarding Five Brothers, complaints include offering low prices for grass cuts, not paying on time, and back charging. However, I have seen some contractors work successfully with Five Brothers.

4) Safeguard Properties
Perhaps the largest national preservation company would be Safeguard. They cover almost all states. They are also one of the easiest to become vendors of. However, it should be noted that their pricing for grass cut vendors is relatively low than most other nationals.
5) Mortgage Specialists International (MSI)
Another comparatively large national preservation company that provides coverage in several states. If you want to become their vendor, you can get more information at this link to MSI Vendor Contact.
Some other National Property Preservation Companies
Apart from the five large nationals listed above, there are more preservation companies that have work directly with banks, coverage nationwide, and are reputable. Below is their list along with links to their vendor applications:

Altisource portfolio solutions is not only a field service provider but also acts as a marketplace for real estate and mortgage industries.

National Preservation companies that provide only or mostly REO work
Some of the smaller nationals only provide REO work, their pay may be relatively less in comparison to the larger nationals that are present. However, there are no risk and liability issues involved. For startup preservation companies & contractors they a
10) GTJ P&M
One of the nationals you should not work for is National Field Network (NFN). Most of the contractors that I know, who had worked for them made huge losses due to non-payment. Even if you are working for them currently, I would advise you to drop them off.
