How long in preservation

Hello fellow professionals,

So after reading the post regarding SG posting in Craigslist and reading other posts in some facebook preservation forums in which a number of members stated this may be the last year in this biz, I got to wondering. How long have you been in property preservation ? How many members do just preservation ? and how long ? To get it started, myself since 1999 doing only inspections and preservation. Just curious !

Six years in preservation, 90 percent of what I do pre-foreclosures and REO, which six years ago was not a bad not so smart on my part. Volume has dropped dramatically this past year. I like the work taking overgrown abandoned messes and making them solid properties.

I started in 2005 officially. I only do pre sale preservation work. Volume has dropped, but it's still more than I can handle sometimes. My business partner started in 1990 and he has only ever done preservation. He is retired from the field now and has made quite a life in this business.
