If you are willing to do work..Boom! You will cash checks.

You WILL NOT GET AHEAD WITH JUST DOING THE WO's ladies & gents. You MUST be willing to bid and do the repairs to make the $$. Period. And if other people suck at wints... Cause they're new.. That's AWESOME NEWS FOR YOU... Bid a THAW and make 800 bones. Step up your game or your business will die. If you want to know.. Here's some free advice folks.. A short list of things you SHOULD bid at every property:



Shrub trimming

Gutter cleaning

Lawn cuts/ snow removal

Debris

Some venders will pay you to move people's lawn stuff inside

Failed wints

Thawing water lines

Removing dead animals

And of course our favorite friend ... Mold & discoloration treatment... Pay outs are good and worth the time to photograph and measure. Bid separate line items for each room... 1- bleach treatment of mold, 2-treat discoloration w kilz or drylok if walls seeping.

BOOM!

When the mold grows back and spreads from the 500 sq ft you bleached and killzed without being licensed in mold remediation the backcharges/claims will start rolling in. BOOM!!!!!!

Here is how I handle this one with a line item qualifier in my bids.

1. Discoloration at walls in bathroom, halls closet and bedroom closet. We will not disturb this in any way. If it is dirty it stays dirty.

All of those things are standard bid requirements for every client we have ever worked for.

Honestly I believe we might make more money if we just did the work orders. After all that is the only thing we are being compensated for. If I were to go to a property to remove the limb on the shed roof and I just remove it and take a quick before during and after then BOOM (as you say) I'm done. No taking more pics and no two hours behind a computer bidding out work that will never be done anyway. That would suit me fine. The more 12,000.00 mold jobs I do the more they extend me out then find reasons not to pay. Like no sticker on the toilet tank or no pic of antifreeze in toilet. Even though we never did the winterization.

We have been doing these things for 10+ years. Boom!

They are listed on most of the work orders. Boom!

At least you didn't preach that if only we did a good job, nothing bad would happen to us. Thank you.

Boom! I just chuckled!

You might add seal all roof penetrations to prevent leaking to your list. I usually get 250-375 for it. They buy it up so I get up there with a tube of black roof sealant and make a quick profit.

What is the purpose of this post? Most orders, I just report the property as occupied, that way I am making the least money. Sometimes I get lucky and they actually pay the trip charge. Cashin in folks. BOOM
