Where you located? Grass season ended around here already........

I agree with Thanohano, tell us a little more about yourself.:thumbup:

I have four girls and a husband. Wanted to have my own business and love real estate.
Welcome aboard. This is a tough business, remember to diversify. Both in terms of the number of clients and types of work. Look for work with direct brokers, investors, private clients, etc. and use P&P to supplement that......

I was thinking the same thing after I agreed to do it. It's with Five Brothers. Looks like a 5 acre lot out in the boonies. And I have been reading the threads on the Five and wondering what I got myself into.:cry:

Be very careful if you are in an area that is out of the grass season. I'd hate for you to start out with a 5 acre cut and end up with a no pay....

The initial work order was never completed by another contractor-due 10/28/12. Should I call my regional to be safe?

Just realized that you said hello from VA. Make sure that you will get paid for that grass cut. HUD grass season ended 10/31. It better be for a violation or and REO property where the client does an initial or bid approval out of grass season.....

Maybe someone else can jump in and help out but here is where I'm at. I have one client who will pay for an initial cut out of season (to bag leaves, etc). Everyone else was done by 10/31, date stamped pics submitted and invoiced by 11/1. I don't work for the siblings so I can't speak for them or the regional you're working through.

What I would suggest is do NOT call. That will mean nothing unless you get a POC to back it up. Get it in writing. It smells fishy that the "other contractor" didn't complete it and now its given to the "Newbie"......tread carefully is my advise.

This might be a test. You're in your probationary period with them. Double check with your state rep. Are you a five brothers vendor or are you a sub of their sub?

I'm a vendor. I am going to check with my state rep. Thanks.
And like has been said, get it in writing. Without a POC email, out of season grass cuts don't typically get paid. Even with the POC, be prepared to :boxing: on payday. Good luck.

Just out of curiosity, how much are they offering to pay you for this 5 acre initial cut?

I had to bid on the initial cut. The grass was 17 in high with 3 foot brush! There was no price for a 5 acre lot. It wasn't worth my time. Another vendor had it before me and they had no response from them. I wonder why?!:whistling2:
