pp-reo vs temp agencies

does anyone see a comparison why this industry is like working for temp agencies,they keep you going until they can find cheaper then make excuses to rid of ya,no benefits and continous lower pay.
can anyone honestly say their making a living just off pp+reo anymore,because like a skiing hill,everything just keeps going down,down,down.

Well, I agree it's getting harder. But, we are exclusive with P&P work, no REO or claims and we are "making a living". But even at the level we are, it's almost pay check to pay check. We have a little bank, but one real screw up or large equipment failure, or something like that and we'd be in trouble.

I'm really looking for alternate streams of income. I've got some extra land around our offices that I've recently been contemplating using to rent U-Haul trailers or maybe even go to the local utility trailer builder and see if we can work a commission deal if he puts trailers on my site.

Gotta get creative.

You need to have a mercenary attitude about work. Diversify your income streams. Specialization is for insects.

We will mow grass for municipalities, commercial, residential, realtors and even other lawn companies if they pay us.

We will haul trash for anyone willing to pay to have trash hauled.

We will cut up down trees and make them go away.

We will clean houses and commercial properties.

We will repair screen enclosures.

We will pressure wash anything you will pay to have pressure washed.

We will clean gutters.

You need something torn down? We can do that too.

If it pays we will wash your dog and your car.

Everyone who works for me knows I will work as hard as I can to make sure they have a job. They also know they do not have a job description beyond do whatever the customer is willing to pay for.
