This may seem like a strange ? but its something I always wrestle with. Lately I've had a number of requests to do estimates for cleanup/re-landscape/ rennovate etc on very small ranch/bungalow type homes. A couple of them frankly look like crap . Obviously these people are not necessarily in the income bracket that many of us like to target. My tendency on these is to walk away because I dont see customers like this as being long term clients.....and to be honest I worry about getting paid. On the other hand I dont like blowing somebody off just because they dont live in a nicer home. THis year I am trying to build a larger residential base since I am too heavy in commercial...so with that effort will come calls from homes like these . From you guys who have been around for awhile I'd like your perspective on whether...in general....it is best to walk away from smaller properties that obviously have been neglected. Of course if its a person who just bought the place that is a little different ...but...its still the type of property from which allot of revenue will likley not be generated long term...thanks for your 2 cents.
