I could do 2 smaller ones providing they were close for $30 each and still get done before that hour is up. So i want to stick with smaller properties. I have 3 properties this year that are right next to each other, a 3/4 acre total between them, i can get them done super fast. About a lil over an hour with trimming. That's $75 for a lil over an hour of work. That's real good money.
There ya go! That's exactly what I was saying a few days ago on here. Sometimes a big property will bog you down and actually eat into your profit because you can be bangin out smaller properties. I have 5 yards all within walking/parking distance on one street! That is where I make good money. I can bang them out, and bring up my hourly net profit. Stay positive, and don't look at NOT getting a property as a failure, because it wasn't/isn't. It just wasn't tailored to your operation.
