Partnering with General Contractors

Flipping in the Northwest Suburbs – General Contractors

All of my investors use third parties to complete their projects.  Some of my investors are more handy than others, but none of them are skilled tradesmen.  All of them have aligned themselves with specific general contractors to complete their projects.

An investor is a dream client for a contractor.  You will be providing them with a steam of work with a pretty decent bill.  The better business minded ones understand that they may need to reduce their overall contractor fee in order to get your business in the future.

Bringing a general contractor through during your inspection period is a good idea.  They can validate your numbers and get a feel for the scope of a project.  Developing a good working relationship with your contractor is important to help hit your deadlines.
