MCS Wins Government Property Preservation Contract

Mortgage Contracting Services (MCS), a Tampa, Fla.-based property preservation and inspection services provider, said recently that it had been awarded a contract with U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to perform property preservation work for the government. Each year, GSA manages approximately $56 billion worth of contracting dollars in providing its government customers with goods and services, including property management and historic property preservation. "As the need for pre-foreclosure and REO property preservation continues to grow, MCS wants to be in a position to do as much work as possible to prevent neighborhood blight," said Allan Martin, CEO of MCS. "It's no surprise that the increase in property preservation work has spawned the creation of many new field service companies. However, with almost 25 years in the industry, MCS is the second largest field service provider in the nation -- and receiving the GSA certification is a true testament to our dedication to providing the best service to our clients, one that we hope will ensure we are the number one provider by the end of 2009." MCS services include property inspections, property preservation, REO maintenance, and default management. MCS currently has staff located in Tampa, Des Moines, Iowa, Cincinnati, Dallas and Austin, Texas, the company said. Write to Paul Jackson at paul.jackson@housingwire.com.
