    First you have to think and tell us more information. Like who bad is the property, bushes, and others. Also how many hours you think it will take. Most people use tarp to put debris on it so how many do you think it will take. need a little more information to help.

    I'm Sure you will get the help you are looking for.

    Be careful on these! Lots of people selling the houses are notorious for not paying. Make sure you get your money up front, or have her realtor hold it in escrow. If you do it and she does not pay it will be hard to get your money.
