Finding the Right Contractor When Selling Your Winnipeg Home

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX executives realty

Winnipeg ContractorBefore selling your Winnipeg home, it is a good idea to examine each room for unfinished or needed repairs. It is very likely that you might need a portion of drywall replaced or cracks caulked outside your bathtub. These small repairs might seem unnecessary, but can easily turn out to be the difference between selling your house that day, or weeks later.

You need to find a Winnipeg general contractor fast! You could easily call up the neighborhood handyman, but it is important to hire someone that has insurance and works for a legitimate business. If the repairs to be done are quite complicated, or involve power tools, the handyman should have insurance. Just one miss with a powertool can end up in a lawsuit if it happens on your property.

Another thing to keep in mind is the cost of the project. Many contractors charge by the job instead of hourly, which could either work in your favor, or end up costing you a lot more! A Winnipeg contractor who offers a free assessment of hours, cost, as well as materials needed is what you need to be looking for.

It is also important to go over his or her credentials, as well as work experience. This will give you a good idea of the quality and quantity of relevant work the contractor has completed.

Bottom line, the contractor must be willing to listen to your input and concerns about the work to be done. There must be a good communication line between you and the contractor, allowing any issues or barriers to be resolved before extra time or money is wasted.

When selling your Winnipeg home you will need someone immediately to fix any outstanding repairs or problems in your house. Hire a repairperson with a solid background in terms of employment and training, affordable price, strong communication skills as well as someone that offers premium insurance. Following these guidelines will help you get a faster sale when you are selling your Winnipeg home.

Harry, that is good advice to your clients.  And I love your side photos, how beautiful!  Living in the California Desert we have tons of sunshine but sometimes I miss the glorious color of autumn that we had in Washington State.  If you have any one looking for a second home in the sun we reciprocate with high referral fees.  Have a great week!
