Often times our clients choose to implement remodeling projects and upgrades to their existing homes prior to officially listing them. We know that the right changes make for an easy sell and want you to feel confident in enlisting the absolute best contractors for your needs. Unfortunately, there are contractors out there who are looking to take advantage of our clients by doing shoddy work that is not up to the highest quality standards. It is for this reason that we have some tips for our current and future clients on how to choose the best contractors for whatever job is needed.
First and foremost, be an educated consumer. The more you know about the project you need done the better you will be at assessing a potential contractor’s ability to perform their job adequately. Do your homework. Research the work that will need to be done and ask questions, lots of questions. If a contractor seems put off by your need to know attitude, you can rest assured they are not fit for the job. It is better to put time into finding the right person for the job on the front in than having to find someone else to finish less than stellar work.
Ask anyone you know who has had a similar job done on his or her home. According to Bankrate.com, the best source for finding quality work is through referrals. Are you considering a kitchen overhaul? Ask friends and neighbors who they have used in the past. Are you looking to upgrade your HVAC system before listing your home? Enlist the help of your community to help you select the best contractor out there.
Consider specialties. Not every contractor is up to the task of remodeling a luxury home so you want to be sure that the person you hire is familiar with your type of property inside and out. You probably wouldn’t trust a furniture salesperson to have the knowledge and expertise to sell you a BMW so don’t do the same for your most valuable asset.
Here at Justin Winter Sotheby’s International Real Estate, we know you have many decisions to make when it comes to making changes to your home. We want you to be prepared as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask our expert staff. We can help guide you in the process of getting your home prepared for a rapid sale.
