Jason Renock answered:
If it's a smaller building (8-20 units) point out all the time and effort it will save the landlord to have you list their units for him/her. Since you wouldn't charge the landlord, there is no downside. Also getting recommendations from previous units you've leased is always a good thing to bring to the conversation. ... more

If a friend or relative performs part of the work, treat them in exactly the same manner -- have a contract, demand adherence to your schedule, etc.

Don't let a gift or a good price disrupt the project overall.
Questions to Ask

What is a good design for our needs?

What is a building code? Does it effect us? How does it work? What doesn't it do?

Who is responsible, overall, for my building project?

What are good sizes and proportions for rooms? What style do I want?

What am I really getting from the builder?

What problems do I have in my current house that I don't want to repeat?

Where can I find answers and help? How do I make my desires known?

What does that line on the drawing mean?

What is a dispute; a lien?

What are specifications? Does the builder write and provide them?

What if my builder does something in a way I don't like? Is the house going to be complete; will something be left out?

When will the house be finished?

What is a contract? How do I play a part in it? What does it say?

What is "an extra"?

Is that a good material, I've never heard of it?

Can I change things?

Who picks the color of the paint, wall coverings, etc.?

Is landscaping included? Sod? Seed? mud and rocks? Slopes? Are landscape features guaranteed?

What if I disagree with the builder? Can I stop the work?
If you need to buy or sale ,please call me I will be glad to help :)

Raoul Sodogandji answered:

I truly believe Armen has given you the correct answer.

What i will probably suggest you to do is to hire an inspector (I can recommend one of the bests. Most banks use them to inspect properties before approving mortgages). They have a different database and they can give you a much valuable answer to your question.

Feel free to reach out to me, if you need their info.

Good luck.

Best Regards,

" It is common in all businesses that the level of customer service, is usually based on income generated from that service given; which is fairly unfair to those who need just the same service of selling, buying or renting in New York City.

That's one of the reasons why we came up with ELITE. It is the highest standard level of same service given from a $2000 rental to a $40 Millions sale, and instead of treating the customers differently, we've decided to give them the ELITE service.

Let's help you with our services, no matter your budget, what you are selling or want to buy, we will give you and your referrals the same best experience ever lived. "
