The good stuff I find that I can turn around and sell haha

There is some money to be made if you wise up and figure out how. There is no money to be made from any safe guard stuff that gets assigned to me but I managed to find the silver lining in them

I'm personally not motivated to stay in it.

Why I do it is to teach my son and his highschool buddies how do things on a house where a home owner isn't standing over their shoulder questioning everything they do.

Prior to this summer, my kid could tear off a roof and that was about it. He now felts, shingles, runs step flashings, valleys and caps. His "education" was completed on vacant homes. I have no problem putting him on customers job.

Casey, one of his buddies and an employee of mine called me this summer while working on mission trip house rehab. He couldn't remember what to do with 3 tab shingles. I took him on a trip down memory lane. When he got back, he said all the adults were impressed and took work direction from him cause they didn't have a clue what to do.

Dryloking is another thing they learned. The first basement they did, they had more on themselves than the wall. Now, I would put them up against any professional painter as they now don't need tarps, don't get it on themselves and their jobs look awesome.

Not to mention, these kids are learning great life skills, like how to run a business and make money. Matter of fact, my son now has input into job quoting, measuring, marketing, web development, etc. The last roof of the season I did, he yelled at me for ing up the bid. Told me that if I can't figure out how to bid them correctly, he'll do it himself. I may have created a problem.......

Good for your son and buds. We have no inclination to stay in it at all other than for the local lenders, brokers, insurance agents and investors. We still stay on with a few companies to maintain an inside track on real estate to buy and sell.

I enjoy it 70% of the time. It also helps me land other business and network in the real estate community. I enjoy the hunt for landing my bids. And finding my next home. Lol

I only have the proverbial toe in the water any more.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.
