The countdown HAS begun...

For sorry suckers to lose their @ss trying to do their work. Remember guys this is before the 20% BS made up discount. Good Luck!!

It is extremely important to ensure that all Fannie Mae properties are free of health and safety hazards. It is our job to keep these properties safe and hazard free. Please identify any health and safety conditions at time of Initial Services and remediate immediately. If you are a Routine Contractor and notice any of these hazards please address at time of routine services. Update Vorticity EMS with photographs of completion of the remedial action.
Health and Safety Hazards and their remedies Include, but are not limited to, the following items:
Ensure all broken glass is removed
Replace all missing switch plate and outlet covers, both inside and outside of the home
Cap all exposed wiring: All electrical wires that are unsecured or uncapped will be secured, and all exposed wiring shall be capped.
Re-secure all loose light fixtures and ceiling fans
Repair all broken or missing stairs. All missing or broken stairs shall be repaired or replaced, and all missing handrails shall be replaced as needed.
Repair all broken or missing handrails
Replace or repair all missing vent covers and open holes in the flooring
Fill in or repair all large open holes in the yard
Repair all trip hazards both in and out of the property.
Secure all objects to the walls as appropriate, including shelves, cabinets, and drywall
Remove all nails, hooks, and screws from walls
Mitigate all minor health and safety hazards, including small areas of discoloration or mildew, rotting food in refrigerators, and other environmental hazards
All missing switch plate and outlet covers shall be replaced.
Trouble code areas with greater than 100 contiguous feet of discoloration.
Replace missing light bulbs (every socket in every light fixture must have light bulb installed)
Prevention of further moisture damage that may be caused by active roof or plumbing leaks at the property. All care should be given to any cause of moisture damage that may cause a further deterioration of the property, or to mitigate any type of damage that may be a safety or health hazard. Every effort must be made to match all roof repairs to the same or equivalent shingle that is on the roof at the time of repair. All active roof leaks must be repaired to prevent further moisture damage. Application of tarps may be utilized as a temporary measure while bids and approvals for needed repairs are pending.
All missing or broken covers to circuit breaker or fuse box panels shall be replaced.
All patios, porches, and decks shall be secured. Sufficient railings shall be installed should they be missing that would secure the area. Trip hazards shall be mitigated on all porches and decks, ensuring that there are not large open areas that would constitute a trip hazard.

All Health and Safety hazards are to be completed within 2 days of notice, and the completed work order including before and after digital photographs will be uploaded into Vorticity EMS within 1 days of completion. Please find a copy of the safety hazard checklist Fannie Mae uses at the bottom of this email.

Welcome to what the world of P&P has become.
The only one making money is the national, rest assured.

Sure Fannie may put some pressure on the national to tighten up but they in turn put the
screws to the contractors and take their pricing way below market pricing and way below even
break even pricing.


If the economy had picked back up like president no nothing told us it was gonna and claimed it did
then these nationals wouldn't have a ready supply of out of work "contractors" with which they'd
bamboozle with their under the basement pricing pie in the sky promises. But as long as the job
market remains soft or looses jobs there will be plenty of guys that work for their rates in order to
at least make beer money.

I only do routine maintenance and once the prices got to this level I told them I would not be doing them any longer.

I got a call from a supervisor who wanted to know why and I explained that I was not going to jump on a grenade every time I went to a new property and fix a bunch of issues at below my cost that should have been corrected before I was assigned the property.

I told them I would document them and report them, but it was up to them to figure out how they get fixed. I offered to bid on the work, but told them that I would quit doing that if the bids never got approved.

They decided that I could document and report and they would get someone else to fix them.

What I don't understand is you know this. You know you can't make money on this. You know that they aren't going to pay you a fair value for your labor, yet you continue in this field and complain about it.

Take you skills and do something else. Something that is respected and pays you what you are worth. At some point in time these PP manager companies are going to have to realize that they people who they can attract aren't worth the pittance they are offering.

Why stick it out and get the shaft?

I have. I've got a damn good thing going with local lawn care.
My company landed three of the top five largest apartment complexes in town. The losers last year make it so easy for my company to look good.
We maybe able to nail down three year contacts this fall they are so happy with us.

Along with other local work.

Only problem is that the winters are really long and snow is uncertain.
When it does snow we make good money.

I am guessing this is not national pricing as I get more than this from nationals. this is a regional copying and pasting a nationals price list and putting lower pricing in. Any one of us could do the same thing. I don't think a regional cutting pricing to make their middle man cut is a representation of the industry.

Edit: doing this from my phone. Now notice this is ams. crazy.
