Haha that's funny!
yeah all that tell them $500 just to clean it up before you can mow it. they can take it or leave it. if you're gonna tackle anything like that then make it more than worth your time.
Put a crazy high price on it
Then double it
You won’t get the job because someone else will under bid it and save you
If you DO get it at least you will get paid enough to pay someone else to deal with
Go on Craig’s list and find someone that has the guts to tell them you’re not interested, or gain the confidence to tell them yourself, you’re in the business to make money not friends.
If we REALLY don't want to do a project for whatever reason (bad property, rude client, etc) we've been known to politely decline the work BUT refer them to a competitor that we don't like.
It's a win-win-win that way. Bad customer gets to deal with a bad company. We get to chuckle about it.
If you don't want it price it high. Personally, these are the kinds of properties I like, and I've got a couple dozen of them. I get a good price, people tend to be less picky than most and tend to be grateful you're helping them out. Of course, being a landlord, I'm used to debris cleanups.
Price it high they will decline
i wouldn't mind doing it if they will stick with you for 5 years or more but most times on stuff like this they get you to put in all the hard work to clean it up (and don't really pay you what it's worth) and then once everything is finally in shape they say "oh, well we are gonna mow it ourselves now" or something along those lines. >.<
...so all that hard work you put in doesn't pay off. sometimes it does though. it's a gamble.
I often do this but have gotten some complaints about the high price. I may just start passing on pita jobs versus high bid
that is a real possibilty
