Building a house involves taking major risks and making big investments. This is why choosing a contractor you can trust is one of the most important parts of any construction project. But with so many contractors all offering the “best” deal, it can be difficult to weed out the scams from the legitimate offers.
So, what can you do to avoid a bad real estate contractor and their empty promises? Here are some tips.
One tried and true source of information on contractors is reviews on various review and social media sites.
Facebook, Google, Yelp, Better Business Bureau and more have reviews for contractors. Keep in mind though those reviews should not be the first and only stop when researching a contractor.
The contract presented by your contractor should be detailed enough that you need to put on your reading glasses to view it. Why is this so important? You don’t want to make assumptions regarding what you thought you signed up for.
