Field Service Management

Cityside proudly serves the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as Field Service Manager (FSM) in thirteen States. The FSM provides property maintenance and preservation services that include inspecting the property, securing the property, performing cosmetic enhancements & repairs, handling safety and health related issues and providing on-going maintenance. The primary objectives of the Field Service Management contracts are to ensure that:

    • FHA insured properties are maintained in a manner that preserves communities;
    • HUD has real time access to all property related information;
    • Properties are secured and safe of hazardous conditions;
    • Property values are preserved;
    • Properties are maintained in a manner that reflects a high standard of care;
    • There is a high level of customer satisfaction with HUD’s property disposition program.

Cityside places high value in having dedicated employees in the field wherever our operations are conducted. Our boots on the ground are your assurance of quality and accountability.

Asset Management

Cityside provides professional marketing and sales services for HUD’s REO properties in nine States. Properties acquired by HUD in those States are assigned to Cityside for disposition. Five primary objectives have been set for Cityside as Asset Manager. They are to ensure that:

    • Properties are accurately and competitively valued.
    • Sales of properties net the highest return.
    • Holding time is minimized.
    • Owner-occupant opportunities are created.
    • Closing proceeds are properly accounted for and delivered to HUD in a timely manner.

These services require constant interaction with HUD FSM contractors, homebuyers, investors, the real estate industry, nonprofit housing and advocacy organizations, Federal, State and local governments and HUD staff. Clearly, Cityside is skilled in coordinating multiple projects as well as supervising or supporting multiple constituencies.

Cityside’s team remains current on changes in regulation, legislation and housing policy initiatives identified by the White House or the HUD Secretary. Compliance with national policy guides our priorities as we serve our clients in the federal government.
