3 Very Good Reasons to Start a Foreclosure Cleanup Business
Foreclosure Clean Up - 3 Reasons to Start thisType of Business No Matter What the Economy is Doing
Foreclosure cleanup is a lucrative business to start right now because of the foreclosure crisis that has been sweeping the country since the fall of 2007. However, this is not an "of the moment" type of business. Following are three excellent reasons to start this type of business - no matter what the economy is doing.
1. Foreclosure Cleaning Is Evergreen: Because this business has the name "foreclosure" in it, a lot of people confuse it for an "of the moment" type of business. But it's not. Let's explain.
What are foreclosures? They are real estate properties that have been taken over by lenders because the existing owners have failed to pay their mortgages. The important words in the previous sentence are "real estate."
As long as real estate is bought and sold, there will be a need for "foreclosure" cleanup companies. Now, we're in a mortgage crisis, so of course, foreclosures are in the news a lot. But, properties are foreclosed on all the time - no matter what the economy is doing.
So, don't get sidetracked by the term "foreclosure". It's just real estate. And it is bought, sold and foreclosed on every day of the week. This means that it needs to be cleaned, repaired and maintained - every day of the week. In other words, it's an evergreen business.
2. Competition Is Weak: A lot of aspiring entrepreneurs are jumping on the "foreclosure clean up" bandwagon. But, that's because it's in the news right now and many of them are thinking they can make a quick buck.
This means many of them will disappear as quickly as they appeared once home foreclosures are no longer in the news. And, this is why competition is weak.
As with any business, only those who stick around long enough will reap the rewards. Because of the reasons mentioned in the evergreen section above, foreclosure cleanup is a viable business - no matter what the economy is doing. BUT, you can't hop in and hop out, hoping to make a quick buck.
Every business requires a commitment. Those who reap the rewards of business are the ones who are in it for the long haul.
And while now is the ideal time to start this type of business and perhaps make that quick buck that so many seek, the ones who will really enjoy the fruits of their labor long term are the ones who go into it with the mindset of "I want a viable business I can run for years to come."
3. You Can Structure It Any Way You Want: The wonderful thing about a foreclosure cleaning business is that you can offer as many or as few services as you want.
This means you can grow your business as slowly or as quickly as you have the resources to. If you can only do minor repairs and lawn maintenance, do that. When you can afford to, then you can offer more specialized services (eg, roof repair, pond draining, electrical wiring, etc.).
Foreclosure clean up is a lucrative, viable business no matter what the economy is doing - if you enter it with the right mindset (ie, for the long haul).
