thanks for the input im unsure of the pricing and the rates fannie mae pays so i can negotiate . i refused to clean the houses for 30 dollars . does doing the yards once a week for 45 dollars sound right to you
Oh, it's Fannie....
Fannie is typically a PITA, however, they do pay pretty good on grass.
I think Fannie is at $80 for grass up to 10,00 sq ft....$175 for an acre.
Depending on your location, these numbers may or may not be profitable.
I'm guessing they would be since you're doing them now @45.
The trick is negotiating with the servicing company.
Fannie is paying $758 for your trailer, if it's full. HUD would be at the $950, VA at $1137.....now, remember, that is what they pay to the serving company. (Asons?) General rule of thumb, serving companies should get no more than 20-25% of bank allowable dollars. However, most servicing companies have a play book of nasty tactics to pay you far less...or even get YOU to pay for the work done. This is where PropPresPro's advice is gold. Make a pot of coffee, six pack of beer...whatever, sit down and do a lot of searching and reading right here. Contractors have been screwed 6 ways to Sunday and most of it has been posted here...somewhere. In fact, that's what bring a lot of people here. They need a place to vent after receiving the preservation enema.
Good luck to you and let us know how things work out.
By the way, there's a ton of bottom feeders out there doing grass for $20-25 across the board. We've seen pictures of them posted here push mowing an acre! You just have to decide what's profitable for you. At the end of the day that's all that matters. I think you're on the right track.
