Over the weekend and into today,I did about 30+ inspects and 90 % have been broken into.Is this happening to everybody.I use to remember the break ins,but now they are sawing off board ups and bringing latters.I even had about 10 of them where they actually pulled all of the cooper out of the walls.

So in regards these house are worth nothing now and they will do no work them but will pay for snow/grass/and inspects and the economy will continue to down spiral.

This is very common in AZ! Especially in Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma. What's worse is we can board up the dang property and have to be back out within days to do it all over again. In Stockton, CA I've had properties that have had to be respected and boarded up as many as 3 times in a week.

I might offend some people on the explanation of why and where this happens. Section 8, welfare, HUD recipients, illegal immigrants, and people with a victim mentality tend to be where these problems happen. Make sure you're packing heat always.

After today I am greatly thinking about packing heat.I would think that after 1 break in they would grab all they want,but to show up 3 times a week,they must be having a slumber party

Why in the world would you need 3 crews to do $450 worth of work?

That's exactly what they are doing! Breaking in to sleep, do drugs, hang out.

I was suppose to do 15 wints,7 board ups and a couple of sales clean.I brought all my guys down to this area and was not able to do any work without a bid approval so I was only able to get trip charges.

I did do alot of estimates but only received trip charges

So they give you a work order but then tell you that you need approval?
That's messed up.

I was suppose to do the jobs but because every single home was broken into,they would not let me do any job on site until they had a bid and approved it.I am sure I will be real busy in the next week when all these houses need to be boarded and secured.The only reason I like this regional because they have the best board up prices in this area

That's because your area is not full of lazy, shiftless wards of the tax payers and government. I presume the citizens in your area are honest and know that hard work and integrity goes a long way. Not so much out here.

There are some, but it seems like there is a balance in the population.
The higher the scum level rises the bigger the problems become.

Breaks ins at vacant properties become more frequent at the 70k and under price range.





That is quite true of the few I did see.



I've seen $500,000 houses remain unlocked for months on end.
No problems.

There is one property that sticks in my mind.


Its on 30 acres, rural setting along a traveled 2 lane highway.
Arguably a fairly peaceful setting. Except some thing about that property ALWAYS had my nerves up. When I was outside mowing the grass or simply taking photos it wasn't too bad. Unlock the door and step across the threshold......... it was all I could do to force my self to stay inside.
My 1911 normally rides in the pickup. Thats how safe I feel even working by myself.
Not here. That puppy was close at hand when ever I went in the house.

I would be back to that place multiple times across the span of a year and a few months. It was always the same.

Probably around the 10 month mark of my time looking after it it did get vandalized and all the easy recyclables were removed. That didn't improve my freak out reaction.
But it was really odd how that property would freak me out the way it did.

I think I'd like to know whats in its history............ then again.......... maybe I dont.
Just be happy that I no longer go there.
Since that regional lost me the property has really gone down hill farther than it was.
BAC had a solid $60k offer on the place. But noooooooooooooooo, now it sits and grows less and less valuable every day.
