2014 is here and with a brand new year many Bend Oregon Homeowners are planning on selling their homes to either move into a bigger home, or downsize, and one common mistake that the average homeowner in Bend will make when it comes time to sell is going cheap when it comes time for them to get repairs made to their home before they list it.

Bend Oregon Homeowners: Cheap Is Not a Good Idea

Even though most Bend Oregon Homeowners will want to do right by their homes and hire the most qualified contractor, painter or professional craftsman to work on their home, some homeowners will choose the cheapest person possible.

A cheap home repair contractor is typically someone who just recently started their business and they don’t have that many references, so they will quote lower prices in the hopes of being able to win more business.

Always Investigate a Home Repair Company First

Before hiring any home repair company, or contractor, every Bend Oregon Homeowner should always investigate that company online using websites like the Better Business Bureau or searching for feedback online because, a company that’s been in business for a while will have some amount of feedback online even if it’s good or bad.

Ask For Referrals from Friends and Family

If you don’t want to go online to search for a home repair professional for your Bend Oregon Home the next best solution is to ask your friends or family members if they can recommend a company to you.

Asking for a referral from your own network of family and friends first, so you can find someone you can trust, will eliminate the need to do all of the “digging” when it comes time to making sure that you’ve found the right home repair company.
