Hiring a contractor out of area

1 Reply

I'm considering investing in the Upstate of South Carolina while living in Northern California. I have family/friends in the upstate and grew up there so I have a little knowledge of the market. My question is if I want to send a contractor over to look at a place to estimated rehab costs - what's the best approach for finding one? Should I rely on online reviews? Is there anyone in Upstate SC that has a reliable contractor they use for flips? Thanks!

Mason,

I have several that I have used.

There are for the greater Greenville, SC area.

Are you looking for a General Contractor?

I also keep a list of people that my local Real Estate club recommend so that when I need them I have them at the ready. (Upstate CREIA) 

We also have a free Yahoo group that you can sign up for to ask for referrals of contractors.

Message me with your email address and I can send you a list.
