My wife and I are doing a major remodel to our house in Land Park which is a neighborhood in Sacramento, California.
Our remodel started early in 2009, about mid February. We are still not back in our house although we see the light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe late March for a move in date.
This remodel involves all new electrical, plumbing, sewer, gas lines, additional square feet both up and down stairs. new duct work and all new HVAC, appliances, flooring, to name most of it.
I had lunch with my contractor this week and asked about the schedule and possibliity of him completing the work in March. He told me that in contracting, you can have two of three things.
The three things are price, time, and quality. Since I could only have two I chose price and quality. So I had to stop thinking about time.
This does not seem to translate into property management. My clients want all three.
