Five steps to work with a contractor

Here are five steps to developing a great relationship with a remodeling contractor.

1. Let the contractor know if you are ready to remodel or just kicking the tires. Gary Palmer, a Charlotte, N.C.-based general contractor, says seeking multiple bids is fine, but don’t waste his or her time by letting the bidding process drag on for weeks.

2. Do your homework. Before seeking bids, develop two files. One should include information, including photos, of what you like. The other should include a list of what you don’t like.

3. Listen to the experts. A good contractor can tell you whether the project is feasible and what the pay off will be.

4. Communicate your budget. Let the contractor know up front how much money you intend to spend.

5. Be realistic and patient. Every remodeling project is messy and all of them are going to be frustrating somewhere along the way.

New Home Buying Tip

If you’re thinking of buying a new construction, you probably already know that every new development will have its own sales staff. These people are often friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the new condominium or new house. However, the on-site sales people work to sell this property only. That means that the on-site staff of a new condominium knows the property as-well-as or better than anyone around and they are there to assist you. But that also means that the on-site sales staff works for the builder.

When in the market for a new condo or a new home, it’s a good idea to employ a buyer’s agent such to protect your interests. A condominium agent knows the entire area, not just one property. A buyer’s agent knows the pitfalls and benefits of buying new, and best of all it won’t cost you one dime more than if you use the onsite staff. You have a right to representation: exercise that right today!
