Main reason I stayed away from foreclosures. I did one a few years ago, the guy in charge of the property was an idiot, trying to cut corners anywhere he can, and the neighbors would always come up to me asking if I could do extra stuff to make it look decent, and just complaining nonstop. I drove by one day and I saw a neighbor trimming the trees.
I informed my contact, and he told me to go tell the neighbor that he's not allowed on the property. He didn't understand me when I told him that's not my job...
I'm happy to say I don't do forclosures anymore, unless I go through contacts that I've dealt with. U.S. Bank and they are VERY lenient I did a spring and fall cleanup on one foreclosure! And they paid good for plowing. $60/push with salt for your standard driveway.
