Doing just fine. Lot of cleanups going on. Closed on a deal to buy 38 more pool accounts. Now I can start working on them for lawn services.

Sweet! How do you find out about accounts for sale? I've had some luck with CL, but it seems people either: a) dump the crappy accounts they don't like, or b) aren't making any money because they're undercharging a tremendous amount and the accounts aren't worth buying.

I got these through a local broker. Came with almost a years worth of chems too. Also included a dozen totes of parts for pumps you won't be able to get in a few months. I always get a chuckle from the lawn ops for sale on CL. No way in hell would I pay a year of income for a lawn account. Saw one joker selling a single 150 a month account up where I live. Claims it belongs to an absentee pro sports player. Wants 650 cash. Yea right.

Yea, warm here, but nice IMO. The ocean really helps. I'm actually selling some accounts to a friend to loosen up the load. Gonna go buy another Tru-cut with the proceeds.
