I'm currently a licensed General Contractor and working on getting business up and growing. My goal is to focus more towards investors and flipping properties for them or rehabbing rentals. I'm looking to add a property maintenance division to my business in the future and am seeking any advice from other fellow property management/maintenance companies. How do you plan your pricing? What marketing seems to work best? I'm in the twin cities area and there is plenty of competition. What do you recommend staying away from and what do you find works best for an overall business model?
@Victor Lebegue I would first look into licensing - unless things have changed I believe you need a realtor's license to manage property for other people. That may be your first hurdle.
you're correct. I believe you need to either work for a broker with your realtors license or have a brokerage license which takes 3 years to get. For managing, I was thinking while the transition for licensing happens I could start up the maintenance side of things. But maybe it makes sense to start things all at once.
Gotcha - read it wrong. I would just network with property managers and let them know you could help them out and see if anything sticks.
