Real estate info & tips: If you have a house or yard job requiring a sub-contractor get a few quotes and don’t hire simply based on the lowest price quoted (it may go up over time) and make sure they are licensed. Make sure the contract you sign is exactly what you want and expect and that the contractor clearly agrees to the all their written job requirements. Ask if the contractor will be performing all of the work or will some of the work be done be a sub-contractor or theirs. Ask if the contractor with whom you are negotiating will personally be on the job site every day until the completion of work. Lastly work with people who want and appreciate the work.


I sell houses, manage property and deal with contractors regularly and recently with one contractor who told me - I am busy and barely have time to fit in this job. Iam glad he is working and busy but this is the attitude I suggest you avoid - I want to work with people who want the job not fitting me in.
