Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
few real estate agencys in any local market handle such things as foreclosed property. Most are handled by large corporations who hire other large companies to find sub contractors that they call vendors for what they call "property preservation". google that and you will find a lot of info on it. I avoid it because there is not enough of that kind of business in my local area and it would not warrant the expenses required to become a property preservation sub contractor. They want so much more than just lawn mowing. most companys will want people who can do plumbing, electrical, repair and replace windows and doors, and board them up in certain circumstances. And they will require a ton of insurance etc.... Some are handy enough to handle all of that. I am not. Good luck if you try it. Most want the work done cheap, and fast, and require computer or faxed reports and photos of before and after and if they or their customers are not satisfied or if not completed within the short time allowed, you will not get paid unless you return and re-do all the work at your own expense and if that happens you will even be paid less than original because it was late.

I have managed to hook up with Two Agents so far once the weather get better I hope to see some lawns from them, I live in a large Military Town so these guys get a lot of empty homes to sell.
