Hit these realtors hard and often with not only your company info (postcards, fliers, letters of intro, etc.), but maybe formulate a newsletter and send it to the regularly via web. Your goal is to win "mind share" when it comes to cleaning foreclosures. You want to be first on their minds when they think of foreclosure cleaning. You have a leg up if your dad does repairs. Many people think it's just cleaning; but, to compete, you need to offer repairs, too. Minor stuff... you'll see a lot of broken windows, kicked in sheetrock, locks busted, cabinets pulled from hinges, etc. Great you have dad, because you will need him. Are your girls old enough to work? Dawn them with some of your uniforms (matching tshirts from Wal-Mart will do fine!) and put them to work. Website: Yes, yes, yes! You need one. Go to places like Yahoo! for quick, free sites. Most realtors are online b/c 8 out of 10 people search for homes are online. If you're not cushy with the web, get cushy with it; it will be your best source for clients. I could go on and on. I've written an ebook on subject b/c my company, Foreclosure Cleanup, LLC, got so many questions daily, like yours. Google it; you'll find it. Yes, get licensed, get proper insurance. Your clients will be professionals, so you want to have your ducks in a row when it comes to license and insurance. Good luck! Let me know how it's going! Go for it!!! Evergreen biz!

Foreclosure Web Site

Hello, I am looking for publicly traded to invest in that specialize in foreclosure clean-up, but I have concluded that it is mostly a regional business. I am located in the Washington, DC area - but am looking for a startup (or existing) business that I can work with.

I am a technology director full-time, and run a small web design company "on the side" - which enables me to keep prices down for small business owners. I'm sure I am not allowed to promote my business on this site, but if you are interested in working together and are looking for a web presence, please contact me.

Thank you.

Hello, My wife and I just started a foreclosure trash-out business in the Sarasota area in FL. We are licensed and just got our insurance. We are ready to go. Can anyone give ideas on where to get started as far as getting jobs.

Thanks Jason

Lightbulb Industry Social Network and Trainng sites

I've come across some great additional sites you can utilize for researching and training in the industry of property preservation.

MortgageFieldRep.com
-Social Networking site for professionals helping banks with recovery of there assets. You can download free guidelines and connect with new clients.


FieldServiceTraining.com -Learn ALL you need to learn about property preservation business. Doing jobs properly, history of business, getting new clients, pricing, learning guildelines, and much more materials to grow your business. Its an online training site if Im not mistaken. Its second to none in my opinion.

Once you visit them Im sure you'll see what we mean. Until next time I wish you all the best. You deserve to be successful! So why not have the right information.
