Haha sounds like u can almost make more goin an cleanin em out. **** that tho i bet they leave all types of surprises. See thats why i love this, u gotta care about something to pay rent for it. Ya.

Not always true, about 2 years ago, a couple got evicted from a house on my street. Well he got locked up, she got evicted. They left all kinds of stuff. Furniture was no good. But had left several boxes of brand new nikes, name brand clothing, tools. Landlord offered for anyone to clean the house that they could keep all the stuff. Well me and my wife jumped on that. Just wish I knew where I can get more opportunities like that.

Evictions are different.  Foreclosure clean ups require that you have E&O insurance and are bonded and licensed.  As an appraiser, I have to carry a mill in insurance.  As well as the fact that I do not take anything from any properties. 
   Most clean up crews get paid three to five hundred dollars per property, and believe me, they are rarely filled with a bunch of little rewards.  Normally they are merely trashed, including having people **** on the floor and plug the drains.

Ok so I need the insurance, which I will look into, how do I look it up in my local area for jobs to do? Or who do I try to approach, the bank?

Truthfully, it can be a teetotal sonofa***** to get into.

Not being flippant, either.  I'm planning on expanding into it pretty soon so my son's can get at it and make some extra cash.
   I'm actually going to take a chance on spending the $250.00 and see if that course at the top of the page actually will help me get into this and turn a profit quicker.
   If I can cut a week or two off, or more, and get to work sooner, then I can make even more money at it.  Just be aware that it is definitely an expensive, and royal pain in the ass at times.

I was all gunho to do this full time a few months back although I have to admit the high priced units and the grind of unloading old clothes and household crap has really taken it's toll on me and I've kind of taken a step back from this business.

I'm still buying a unit or two a week but not heading out to auctions every free minute I have.

Though I'm still buying units and still selling on ebay I've been opting for smaller profits and pretty much unloading everything on other resalers and taking a small cut for myself.

I've been kind of focusing on some other ventures and things I have going on. I did recenty learn of an opportunity for a very cheap retail space in a perfect area for a resale business and the best part no commitment as far as lease and being tied down for a year or anything like that.

FThis kind of has my interest peaked in once again looking into a store.

Honesty is a wonderful thing.

Looked at your completed eBays and at the present, it seems Copper is not the new silver, but could be one day. How much profit do you make on a $75 sale of 1 million Vietnamese Dongs?

Every time I hear 'Vietnamese Dong' I think of an asian porno, and it usually seems to be a short feature.

Thats the next thing I want to jump into, doing clean up on foreclosures and rentals. How do you get into that?
I would definitely like to know this as well. Interested in starting a cleaning business for this. Thanks!
