Make sure they pay it in "cash" up front.
You're a generous man to consider doing any work for them.
The one guy in NY told me he wanted the entire property including the mobile home cleaned out. I looked at it and it was a filthy mess. One of the rooms was full of trash bags full of trash! I thought to myself, I could handle doing this but it won't be cheap. I figured it to be a good 3-4k to get all the trash inside and out as well as cut the grass cut back some over grown trees and hack a few saplings down. He found someone to just bush hog the front to keep the township from issuing fines. Believe it or not, I was considering buying the property (great location) for only 18K! It was a 1.3acre lot. I didn't have the money and had to pass. Heck, I could have leveled the place and put a nice prefab home up and have a nice garage for under 100K. Being tied up in another mortgage stopped us.
