Choosing a "Seller-Friendly" Contractor

Updated: Mar 11


Although there are many terrific contractors out there, there are always a few bad apples. When preparing your home for sale, you need a contractor that gets your job done on time, on budget and without creating a big mess.


To help make sure that happens, ask prospective contractors these questions:


  • “Will I be issued a receipt detailing the work done?” This is handy to have as you might want to show it to buyers.

  • “Do you thoroughly clean up the work area each day?” This is especially important if your home will be shown to buyers during this period.

  • “Is the project schedule realistic? Is there a chance the work might take longer than expected?” Delays can negatively impact the sale of your home. It’s better to get a realistic timeline from the contractor, rather than an ambitious one.

  • “Under what circumstances will the final price be higher than quoted?”


Of course, you also need to check references and do other due diligence to ensure the contractor is a “good apple”.
