Hey Can anyone refer me to a good general contractor for rehabbing residential properties in the Detroit, Michigan area or any surrounding areas? Thanks!
My suggestion is having a local person you can rely on than get a in place. I have reliable people that I work with on my SFH rental to get those rent ready. But once contractors find you are out of town and you have no access to them they have the tendency to take advantage of that. Be careful of and vet these companies of individuals you use because if you don't manage the person managing your rehab things will fall apart.
@Charles Clark I would say that you should quote contractors on a full rehab..
BUT in my experience in Detroit that can be dicey.. unless you have STRONG RECOMMENDATIONS from their past customers that you can trust.
I've found my best strategies for rehabs is utilizing a hybrid approach to 'piece-mill' my rehab team.. find a good plumber, electrician, carpenter, handy man etc.
If you hit a home run and have a company that's supplied all members awesome!! But dont rule out the 'hybrid approach' either.
Contractors can make or break you in this market.. 'measure twice.. cut once'.
@Michael Wright thank you for your suggestion
@Keyonte Summers ok! Cool if you have reliable people who are vetted in your area and are ok with me reaching out to them in couple months that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
