Prices in the industry have dropped so far since 07-08. $40 to $50 for a recut back then and now they want it done for $30-$35(if your lucky more like $25 atleast in CA)If you were to get into it working with nationals would probably be best there way there is no regional middle man. As for cleaning stuff out and selling it for profit, doesnt happen that often, the agents are 1st man on site and will take anything of value. If you were to get into the business pick a small tight coverage area and stick to it. There are crews in CA "recutting" yards for $15 a pop with a 2 man crew cutting 32 properties. So that is what you are going to compete with.
Best advice is look at the numbers, numbers do not lie... People do
Ask the companies that are soliciting you to send you their price sheet, crunch the numbers and go from there bud.
