Don’t Say This to a Contractor

Filed under Homeowners on Nov 23,2021 | Tagged in: ,

We all need to hire a plumber, painter, remodeler, electrician or other contractor from time to time. You’ll want to be clear about your needs, objectives and budget.  But  you’ll also want to avoid saying things that can derail your project. 

Realtor.com offers eight  things you should never say to a contractor, from the viewpoint of both the homeowner and the person you hire to do the work.  For example, don’t tell your contractor that you’re not in a hurry or that you don’t have a budget. Don’t offer to recommend subcontractors you know, or to buy your own materials. Most importantly, don’t offer to pay upfront, or ask if you can pay later than originally agreed.  In every case, your project will be most successful if you DO put everything in writing, including the scope of work, payment terms, and work schedule.  That’s the best way to develop a solid, working relationship. The Vanguard Realty Associates team feels the same way about how we work with our buyers and sellers. We’ll always communicate clearly, and put things in writing, so we’re all on the same page throughout the process.
