Re: Help Me Spruce Up This Facade


Prices for Oregon homes are getting ridiculous! If this summer is going to be like last I'm charging for estimates.....

Re: Help Me Spruce Up This Facade


They are selling just as many this winter (in Oregon) as they did last summer. Most of my work is homes being sold, and I haven't really slowed down.

Some of the ghetto houses I've worked on are getting several offers. The starter homes don't stay on the market for long. Many fetch above asking price.

Re: Help Me Spruce Up This Facade


Too good. But I'm not complaining. I just need two or three of me. Anyone had any luck finding employees? There aren't any around here worth a crap. If they aren't working, there is a reason.

I don't want any, but when I get this pushed on schedules, I like to dream of a world where there are skilled, dedicated guys wanting to actually work.

That awesome 19 year old might learn all he can, for 2 or 3 years. And then, licence up to run direct competition. After more than 35 years of self employment, the hardest part is finding HELP!... and it seems to be getting worse!

$250k with multiple offers if it's condemned.

Otherwise $350+

Leaving Californistan for less commie States?

What % of RE sales are to EB5 Visa holders ( persons granted visas in exchange for 500,000.00$ deposits into USA) The house counts too....

See Vancouver Candida for the damage done to locals/City by Chi Coms seeking refugee homes for their families exit strategies.
