HUD Chooses New Property Preservation Estimating Software Provider

The Dept of HUD has just adopted a new online property preservation estimating software provider to verify pricing on bids they receive for property preservation, maintenance, and repair costs on all FHA single family homes.

How does this help you?

A property preservation company can benefit in several ways. If you have access to the same database of repair costs used by HUD then you know precisely the highest price you can charge for each individual task included in typical property preservation repair jobs.

A savvy property preservation company will utilize this database to make sure they are maximizing each estimate or bid by charging the highest allowable amount for each repair item. Another benefit to property preservation companies is that by using the same property preservation estimating software as HUD they will have more of their estimates approved.

The property preservation estimating software is a little pricey. But with a little creativity, you could assemble a database of estimating templates that includes every single repair you will typically encounter as a property preservation contractor, like I did.

Thank you for taking the time to read my stuff. I want you to know that I gladly accept and appreciate any and all comments that you may have and that add value to the article. Also, if you have any questions you would like help answering that are related to this blog post or property preservation in general, I would be more than happy to answer those, as well. In fact I created this blog for people like you. So thank you again and please know that I appreciate you! Please note that the next paragraph does NOT apply to you. It is directed to a few individuals who think it is OK to use spam.

ATTENTION COMMENT SPAMMERS:
I have noticed an increasing amount of non-value-added spam which is clearly being left by people who are attempting to get a link back to their website. Do you really think that spamming comments is helping your website? Well do you? All you are actually doing is polluting the internet with more spam. Plus you are telling your potential customers that you are too lazy to leave a halfway decent comment. You should realize that most people are smart enough to see that the quality of everything else you do is most likely just as bad as your spammy comments.

If you can leave a REAL comment or question then I welcome you back with open arms. However, if you try to post any more of that spammy B.S., it will be deleted and you will forever be known as a knuckle-headed dooshbag (that is how I spell it). Have a nice day ;)
