HI Looking Better Than Barbie!

Would you mind sending me the information too. Is it just the information below or is there additional information? My husband and I are in North Carolina so hopefully no competition there but my salary has been cut 75%. We need to do something else. Thank you so much!

Default Help with Info in Georgia

He gave me a copy of his ad and I tweaked it a bit, put it up on craigslist with my husband's info and within 30 mins. he had a guy call!! He wanted to know how much my hubby would charge to clean out his rental property some people skipped out on and paint it! So it works. My husband will have to go and look at the property to see about how much to charge him (how much time he'll think it'll take, how many people he'll need and what size dumpster to rent). The guy told my husband that he called some other guy and the guy quoted him $500 for the clean out only. I think that sounds about right. Also, my husband's brother, who does bank foreclosures in Houston, said we need to contact the Realtors who do specialize in selling REO's bank owned properties. So my hubby will hit the streets tomorrow morning and take his flyer and business card with him to give out to realtors. If you want a copy of the flyer you can DM me and I will only give to people who are not in my area!! LOL

Hi, We would like to start a business like this in Georgia. We are researching how to get started. Could you send me some info?

Glad to help
Hi! Where in Texas are you? We are starting a clean out business too, and are in The Woodlands. If this is not your area, could we see your flyer too? Thanks! ryan@thepropertysover.com

I would love to see your flier. I don't live in your area. My husband has been trying to start a clean out business and I guess I have become his secretary. lol. I love that you are willing to help other people.

I came across this site just the other day and saw the posts on the trash out business. We have been in the business for a while now. There are a lot of tricks to the trade. I have written a book on how we do it. It is a basic hands on book and how we did it. This is a huge market and it is only going to get bigger in this economy. Instead of being a victim of the economic downturns, we decided to profit on it. This is not, and I repeat, Not a get rich quick scheme but a get paid everyday scheme.
Please take a look. Cleaning Up, All the Way to the Bank
Thanks and good luck

My suggestion... in addition to cleaning why not add another service to spray organic green paint on dead lawns? I saw this guy on TV news doing it and getting lots of business.

As the previous responder stated, be sure you get all the proper licensing required by your county/state.
If you find anyone in San Diego, CA cleaning foreclosures let me know.
