Gratitude

Hi Everybody - just wanted to say thank you for all the information you've shared it's helped me a lot and I just wanted to say I appreciate all who have been generous with their knowledge and advice. Here a year later ( better late than never) I finally got on with a real estate agent who works directly for HUD. I won't pretend to know all I need to know, we all have to start off somewhere and that's what I did after being unemployed for too many years. So thank you again for the help and all that advice that is offered freely.

Sounds like good things are on the horizon for you. Once I got in with brokers in large offices, word of mouth spread. Glad things are looking up.

Thanks for the good thoughts, so I have my first house next week for an initial clean, initial landscape, winterization and debris removal. The broker wants a bid and I don't want to overbid or underbid. Where do I start? I have the winterization and debris removal but what to bid for the initial and clean is the questions. Thanks for any help.

Do a walk through with the broker. Take notes. Figure out how much time will be involved to bring the property to his/her sales needs. Multiply times your labor rate/hour. Add in any material, overhead and profit required.

My advice is forget the crappy price sheets that the nationals and regionals have been handing out. With that being said, if you are going to exceed HUD allowable, make sure the broker understands why.

Thank you, I of course have been doing flat rate work to start, but I made it work for me and didn't lose what I've started and have added more equipment and a decent enough profit for myself and from what I've seen in this forum as far as pricing for certain things I've made note of all I could find. I did one trim job on a manufactured house and bid $750 which I got from one broker so I guess I did ok first try. Thanks again.
