:furious:In recent months we ventured into the REO/Property Perservation business and the only way to get into this business was acting as a sub-contractor to a middle man company with a National Contract with Fannie Mae. After three months we found out that there is no way a sub-contractor can make any money working through these middle men. You can find pay rates for services on cubicyardus.com and these middle men do not pay near what the posted rates are and you will lose money. If you do not keep details ledgers of your transactions, when it comes time to get paid, you will find all kinds of deductions from these middle men for any number of reasons, even when you do the services and they are approved. We have been trying for months to work on a direct bases with the government agencies and can not find an in road. Can't seem to get in with the brokers or banks either. Does anyone know how to make these inroads? The prices the government is paying you can make money if you can get the middle man out of the way. Takeing all suggestions.
