Most of the experienced folks here are here to help. If that means guiding a new vendor towards a better source of income, I don't have a problem with that.
As far as fear of competition, 99.9% of the people on this board are never, never, never going to bid against me on a Freddie Mac rehab, or trashout, or anything. So why wouldn't I help if I thought I could?
There are 5 or 6 local companies doing preservation work here that I know of. Of them, none really compete with me for the same jobs either, that I know of, and even if they do, more power to them. I have a relationship with the brokers that I work with that goes far beyond being "the lowest bid", and I know for a fact that the 1 regional company I work with prefers using my company over all other venders within 300 miles. Even if that we're to change, I would figure out a way to replace that income. Competition doesn't scare me, it makes me better, not cheaper, BETTER!
MTMTNMN & I probably compete the most with each other in the local market. That doesn't scare me either
. Tomorrow we are scheduled to work together on a 55CY trash-out and initial services for a broker. Plus we are there to cover for each other when one goes on vacation or just needs an extra hand. That is the kind of competition everyone needs!
