HUD Properties

I have seen a few threads on here about HUD properties. I have a chance to bid on over 200 of them all thru one management company. They manage and renovate the properties. It's a 12 month contract for trash weekly and lawn and landscape maintenance. They claim they pay monthly. This is only outside maintenance, nothing to do inside. Any thoughts or ideas? :weightlifter:

You will also probably need to register with the central contractor registration and have a DUNS number for government work which
Takes a little while to fill out so get a head start, both are free to get

HUD propertys can be a headach, most will be scattered aver several counties. You will have to email around 50 pictures every yard you cut. I looked into them and worked with a feller 2 days and relaized it wasnt for me.

All the ones i did was in a 3 parish area (COUNTY), i only did the ones noone was living in. If.they are occupied its the residents problem. I never had to send a single picture, only a filled out work order after the last cut of the month. But i waz working directly for hud too.

These are all within a five mile radius of a major city. No pictures need taken and they pay monthly. (Supposedly) So I just wanted some thoughts thanks.

I recently was going to register to do USDA forclosed properties. The DUNS and CCR was very easy, but then I got to a questionaire that I felt I needed a lawyer to answer. I decided to not complete the registration. If I were registering for more consistant work from the USDA I may have contacted them and completed tha questionaire.

The government will always pay fast, and rarely dispute a bill.

A bank foreclosure management company will almost always make you jump through flaming hoops while soaked in gasoline just to get paid.

Depending on who is paying the bill would determine whether I'd put a crew on it or not.
