HAHA Yeah...I was thinking stripper
LOL! I would make much more money with less work. haha
But yes, private work seems to be the way we are heading.
Nationals are getting really hard to work for. Yes, they have the volume, however they keep wanting us to cross over from repair/rehab to P&P, and we have been pretty solid on staying out of P&P. We use repairbase for our bids which most of our clients use as well and they are wanting 30-40% discounts which leaves no money to be made. It gets incredibly frustrating arguing prices non-stop. Granted, dealing with residential clients who want to sit and talk the entire time the crew is working is just as frustrating at least they are giving us the pricing we deserve without argument.
