amazon is going to make it worst.

Did anyone see that amazon is coming out with home services? amazon will take a 20% take but they offer all the same jobs as we all do.. So now who ever has an amazon account can sign up and saturate the market.. should have stayed in the I.T. Field here is the story if you want to read. http://arstechnica.com/business/2015...-drum-lessons/

Personally I think it will be a short term "fad". At HomeAdvisors the contractor pays a set fee per lead. Angie's Lust has been losing market share due to the fees. A 20% charge will turn a contractor off quick.

I don't see this affecting the P&P/preservation business. Amazon is fairly picky with vendors they allow to sell on their site. I highly doubt there are many legitimate businesses out there that would be willing to work for less than what most P&P/preservation vendors are being paid now days.

If you are in another line of business in a certain market area, it may have an impact to a small degree. Thats the thing about business though, you have to be constantly adapting to survive.
