(Forum) Newbie - moving to Orlando area

Good afternoon (currently) everyone. We're a family-owned company that does home renovation and repairs (mainly flips for investors) in the South FL area but we're relocating to the Orlando area.

We've done a lot of property preservation work in the past - small and big repairs (drywall, paint, water-heater, electrical -both big and small-, etc) in both vacant and tenant-occupied foreclosed homes (during the 2008-2012 time-frame) and smaller things like lawn cuts and such for a shorter amount of time (2013-2014).

Since we don't really have any connections or customers in Orlando, we would like to go back to property preservation. I've read the "Open Letter to Newbies" and I'm not asking for better or worse companies. I kindly ask for any recommendation and if you know of any company we could apply for that does work in Orlando. Or if you've ever relocated and have some wisdom and/or advice to share, please feel share it...it'd be highly appreciated.


Thanks!

You're basically starting over, no matter what industry you are in. Why not "Start Over" in the renovation business? Use your previous investors as references. you should have pictures of past jobs, and letters of recommendations from past investors you have completed work for.

The pay is better, the work is better, and the people you deal with should be better. Stick with the renovations and flips. That's my advice.

In Florida, everyone and their brother got into P&P in 2007 and 2008. There was plenty of work to go around and make a very good living. Now, volumes have dropped and still about the same amount of contractors sharing a much smaller pie. Tough business to start over in right now. I'm with G 3. Very good advice
