1. Cleaning Foreclosures and Cleaning Bank Owned Homes
With the current economy and real estate market in the gutter, foreclosure homes “bank foreclosed homes” are literally everywhere and in every real estate market across the nation. All of these bank foreclosed homes need to be cleaned out and prepared to be re-listed and be put up for sale. The banks need these properties cleaned out quickly and pay top dollar for these services. The average foreclosure cleaning company earns on average from $500 to $3500 per property, and many of these properties with large jobs can add up to $9500. There is plenty of this work available too, many foreclosure cleaning companies are working 7 days a week and handle cleaning out 10 to 30 bank foreclosed homes per week!
