Foreclosure Clean Out ends up being bigger than Realtor thought

Services for Real Estate Pros with JUNK EVICTION

junk eviction before photo

OK, so we traveled a littler farther than we would normally like to, but I wanted to see if it was worth it to use our truck and guys to pull the junk out.  The trailer we use for jobs like htis is 250 cubic feet.  That is 5ft. wide by 10 ft. deep by 5 ft. high.  That's a lot of junk!  Our worst to this day was a storage unit that was a 10 ft. by 20 ft. unit with junk piled 8 ft high....we were shocked!

So, this job was a foreclosure property.  We were hired by the Realtor to come in and do the clean up.  The distance to this job made giving an estimate a little difficult and not cost-effective.  We eneded showing up on the job and opening the garage door to find the junk shown in the picture above.  The Realtor had guessed we could get it all in one load.  I personally believe we have excellent pricing.  I can also understand the Realtor wanting to save money, but THIS was definietly not one load.  If I rolled in with a huge dumptruck we could have pulled it all in one load...guess what that would do to our pricing.  Belive me, we make every effort to make the junk fit...including tearing items apart or bending them into shapes they were never intended to be in.  Items in this JUNK EVICTION (tm) included the sleepr sofa you see in the pic, yard debris and dog mess you don't see, two metal pool ladders, carpet rolls, a TV, mirror, two huge metal boards used for flooring, bicycles, a porch swing with metal frame and tons of just "stuff".  The stuff is usually not a is when you we have to shovel items up that the job tends to slow down.  Debris and gravel like this can be very heavy and can typically cost more when go to weigh in at the landfill.  Debris, gravel and dirt also take considerably longer to load thus increasing our company's manhour costs.

Anyways, this job went very well.  My point in telling the story is to prepare Realtors for the reality that some jobs are bigger than they appear.  You know as well as i do that many people abnadon the junk they have been carting around for years, or they see no point in cleaning up when the cards are stacked against them.  Maybe it's there way to get back at the bank.  Unfortunately, I would really guess they just feel defeated, and their feelings regarding cleaning up for the bank are a little bruised.  These situations call for our wonderful group of guys to come in and help everyone (including the bank) move on with life.

This crap is a total scam! I don't know about JT Stewart program but Lisa Cameron's is terrible! Don't purchase from unless you just want to throw your money away. Any positive responses you are reading here are either paid for or someone begging for work. Cashforcleanouts is a rip-off. scam owned by Lisa cameron is ripping people off, period. Plus, banks, other lenders, and realtors are looking to pay bottom dollar for the clean outs. I can sit home broke, but not tired and broke! Dan

Is this still a viable business? Seems like the foreclosures here in the east San Fernando Valley has dried up. I was thinking about doing this business in L.A. County, San Bernardino County, Ventura County, etc. so I could generate enough business on a daily basis. Does this make sence? Any responce from real Clean out business owners is appreciated. Please don't respond to try and sell me an ebook.

Guess what? You don't need a manual to tell you how to do this. It's real simple. Start a cleaning business, call a realtor and go from there. If it's slow at first, get some commercial cleaning accounts. You can do these forclosure jobs in between the real cleaning work. In the meantime you build some solid cleaning accounts. Why would you buy a book for 180 bucks just to be told "call a bank" or "call a realtor"? There's nothing a book can tell you that you can't figure out through the course of just doing it.

does anyone know about the cleanout bussiness in houston texas

Jul 19, 2010 01:27 PM #52

Foreclosure cleaning is hard work and hard to find. The banks, lenders, and everyone you are sent to want you to clean for nothing. You are always trying to find your next job. By the way, you don't need the cleanout foreclosures manual, you can get listed on these sites anywhere. You just go long periods between jobs and it doesn't pay.

I contact the realtors at

They pay up to $2,500 per clean-out.

Go to the list and ask the realtors if you can bid on the work.
