    I've got about 400 properties scheduled for the next two weeks. Stuff like this is a blast to plan out.

    I'm not bragging, I just thought I would post a screenshot of part of my route for those who are up and coming will have some motivation.

    Work hard, bid correctly, advertise constantly and you can do it.

    It is. You should have seen it when I first started. I was going all over the place. :D

    It all paid off though.

    how many crews do you have?...that's a ton of yards...i would think 4 crews?...i dunno the yards here seem to be bigger than most areas...we used to do 10 yards a day with a crew of 3 people which should give you an idea of the average sized lot here.

    These are all residentials.

    Average lot size before improvement is 7000 sq ft. Some as low as 2,000 sq ft. Largest is 13,000 sq ft.

    I have two three-man crews. We do 25-30/day.

    380 or so of these are foreclosures with a two week time frame on them, so we can split them up into two weeks. About 50 of them are regular customers with top priority.

    I should also mention that some of them that look to be far out will actually be handed off to someone else, so I guess those don't count.
