If you’re in the home-flipping game, your profits are only as good as your contractor choices. Choose wisely, and you add value to your property without eating too much into the budget. Choose wrong, and you might just kiss those returns goodbye.

Unfortunately, as many contractors as are out there, finding a good one isn’t easy. Some won’t show up on time (or at all), others won’t hold to their estimates, and even worse, some just don’t have the skillset or experience they claim to.

Even when a buyer finds a suitable property, they are faced with fierce competition with multiple offers that
