Hello BP So I want to get started in Rehabing my own properties, but I don't know where to start. questions:

1. Should I work for a contractor?

2. How would I find a contractor that is hiring? Should I cold call?

3. Having no experience in contracting how would I work for one? Do I need to go to school or something? Or will they teach me?

Pros:

1. I can Get experience.

2. I can build a great network.

3. I can probably get some of the equipment needed for free maybe.

Cons:

1. It'll take more time.

Hey!

1. Should I work for a contractor?

- Yes this could be a great opportunity for you! However it's NOT necessary!

2. How would I find a contractor that is hiring? Should I cold call?

- Drive around the city on a nice day and ask contractors if they'd be willing to have a helper! You may need to get licensed in your state though to help them out.

3. Having no experience in contracting how would I work for one? Do I need to go to school or something? Or will they teach me?

- You'll need to get licensed but you can also learn from them along the way!
