Hey Dustin, how's it going thus far with your business in Boise? I see you have the equipment and crew, so I'm thinking you're working the industry successfully now... chime back in and give us an inside peek. If you haven't signed on with the big property preservation companies, you will want to consider completing vendor applications to get to the next level so you can start receiving working orders in the zip codes you service.

Much success to you in Boise!

Dustin,

There have been several people just like you asking the same question, so for your benefit I would search on this website, just put words like Trashout in the "seach advice" box. This will give you the answers to many of the prior questions, and there a LOT of them so you should get plenty of advice. Good luck to you

I wish you the best. Talk to a lot of agents, brokers, and loan officers. They have the low down on what's going on. Also post up ads on craigslist. Old fashioned networking -- that's the way to do it. Also add bankruptcy attorneys to the list.

Here are some ideas for you:
• Place ads in the Thrifty Nichol - fairly in expensive
• Place free ad in CraigsList.com and in ZIdaho.com
• Drive around neighborhoods and look for "For Sale" signs and "Sold" Signs - these people will be moving soon and may need some help on the clean up once they have moved out, leave a card or brochure talking about the services you provide.
• Drive around and find homes that are in decline (short sales, foreclosures and bank owned properties), find out who the contact person is and give them a bid to clean the property up.
• Talk with builders and remodelers to see if they need clean up on their job site.

Hope those are good ideas for you.

Dustin-
I'd suggest making flyers with a list of services you provide and delivering them to the local real estate offices. Most offices will hand them out to agents for you, and agents often know of homes that need your type of work before they can be sold.
