Traditional estimating practices do not apply to this profession. Price discussions are very helpful to the property preservation contractor, and there are forums out there that do allow them.

Other than that, research HUD's pricing matrix for your state, and decide how much of a discount off of those prices you can live with.

Good luck, you are going to need every ounce of luck you can get in this industry.



You'll also go broke at their rates.

Well i just tried to do all the insurance stuff i needed to do to get them on and it will cost be me even more money 100 a month more, plus the fee i have to pay for the software they use i know i said i was going to give them a try, but now that i just added the extra money i have to shell out i think I'll look around for a different client. I will be losing a lot more than i thought .

Seriously you'll be many times better off getting local customers that you can meet face to face with and do their lawn/grounds maint.

Hmmm, I can do grass cuts for this regional for $14 per yard, minus special insurance, software fees, chargebacks and my overhead (!!!!!) or I can do some of the same type properties for the local broker for 5 times that. I'm confused....
