Money. It’s the big “gulp” issue when it comes to remodeling or building a new home. How do you ensure the job is done right while also making sure your hard-earned money isn’t spent poorly or out-and-out stolen by a contractor?
Bella Vista Company recognizes the stress that money management can cause a homeowner and has safeguards in place to successfully navigate the financial part of home building or remodeling. “It’s important to hire a company that you can trust to handle the day-to-day financials and that has the accounting staff needed to distribute all of the costs accurately,” says Bella Vista Partner Sara Haley.
Picking a solid, experienced contractor such as Bella Vista Company is a great start, but most homeowners still have questions about the whole process in general. It’s not uncommon for a homeowner to ask: When do I make a payment? Will work be done on time? Can someone take the money and run without completing the job? How can I financially safeguard myself? Am I able to finance all or part of the construction project?
“These concerns are why we have a tried-and-true process, and we stick to that process on every job,” says Haley.
Bella Vista Company often partners with City Bank Vice President and Mortgage Consultant Patti Hawkins on remodeling and new build projects that involve construction, refinance, home-equity, renovation-plus and purchase-plus loans.
