Finding The Right Contractor

2. Finding The Right Contractor -Part I

Finding The Right Contractor

Finding A Good Contractor in Connecticut
UPDATE: This contractor’s name is DAVID MILLER. He is also on bigger pockets asking for loans. He is a scam artist and a charlatan. He stole money from us and ran> Luckily I was able to reclaim it as my Credit Card company found out he was indeed a thief. All paperwork can be provided that shows he is a scam artist. STAY AWAY!!

Finding The Right Contractor is a MUST to flip houses successfully! So, let us recap. Last entry, we wrote about: How To Find An Amazing Deal. Just as a home seller needs to know how much their house is valued on the market, you as an investor needs to know how to find amazing deals!

We Have The Property Under Contract

It is a house we bought in cash from a seller in Clinton Connecticut. We are more than happy! The obvious next step is finding a contractor asap.

Why asap?

Well… many reasons:

  1. The obvious ones are: you want to put the property back on the market asap. The longer you hold on to the property the more costs are associated with it (holding costs).
  2. The sooner you start, the more time you have dealing with issues that come up. Yes, they WILL come up!
  3. But we had the other reason to get a contractor on it asap! The roof was in really poor condition. We needed a new roof before snowfall. Remember we were already almost into November by then. And we still needed to resolve some title issues.
  4. We needed to put the property on the market by March 1st. This is a non-negotiable deadline as that is the perfect day to list a brand spanking freshly rehabbed property so that buyers can fight over it.
  5. If something really bad happens the option of wholesaling the property to a cash buyer is always there. Better find out sooner than later if wholesaling is the best way out.

So to put things into perspective. Meanwhile, I am still trying to find more motivated sellers that need to sell their house in Connecticut fast. We buy houses anywhere in CT. We Buy Houses In Bridgeport CT, We Buy Houses In Hartford CT and anything in between and beyond!

Cash For Houses In CT

Before any work can be done securing the house for winter, we need to:

  1. Close on the property and,
  2. Need to replace the roof ASAP.

So in order to have a contractor work on the roof, we still need to close and find a contractor. In order to close we need to resolve the aforementioned title issues! So we were in a hurry!!

And we thought the drama you see on HGTV was fake…

So here we are walking the property with several contractors, to finally Finding The Right Contractor.

I will now give a very neat trick on how to get contractors. I think this is such an awesome trick it deserves a separate entry. So I will stop here. Remember to those needing more info on selling or buying your house in Connecticut, visit us on our Connecticut home buyers page.
