Marco Community Bank Closes
The latest failed bank listed is Marco Community Bank in Marco Island, Florida. On Friday, February 19, 2010, Marco Community Bank, Marco Island, Florida, was closed by the Florida Office of Financial Regulation, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was named as the Receiver.
According to the FDIC, no advance notice is given to the public when a financial institution closes up shop.
All Marco Community Bank deposit accounts, excluding certain brokered deposits, have been transferred to Mutual of Omaha Bank, Omaha, NE (the "assuming" or "acquiring" institution)
The formerly known Marco Community Bank will now reopen as a branch of the Mutual of Omaha Bank during its regular business hours.
What This Means for Foreclosure Cleanup Businesses
The acquiring (or assuming) institutions of failed banks can be fertile ground for foreclosure cleanup business contracts. How? Because these acquiring banks or assuming institutions will now have all of these new assets to manage; and many of these new assets will be real estate assets (which will include homes in default and homes that are undergoing the foreclosure process).
These new real estate assets will ultimately need some form of property preservation and foreclosure cleanup services. (http://www.foreclosure-
Foreclosure cleanup business owners who are poised to reach out quickly to these newly appointed acquiring institutions offering their company's services can grow their businesses by seeking cleanup contracts. Properties that have been foreclosed upon will need securing in the form of window boarding and lock changing, debris removal, yard work and interior and exterior inspections.
One inspections contract can add thousands of dollars to foreclosure cleanup business' bottom-line.

Good luck with your foreclosure cleanup business!
