Today’s real estate market is full to the brim with excellent investment opportunities. Home buyers have a vast range of properties to choose from, including a sizable selection of fixer-uppers that are just waiting to be renovated. Unfortunately, many home buyers shy away from these imperfect residences, fearing the complexities that such projects could entail, and assuming they would have to be the ‘weekend warrior’ or do-it-yourself expert to slowly and painstakingly fix up their own home.

However, with the help of a general contractor, even the most inexperienced consumer can achieve a high-quality home renovation. General contractors can also prove to be an invaluable asset as you search for a new home.

Many people are under the impression that general contractors are only responsible for new home constructions. However, the tasks of a general contractor are actually quite varied. While some contractors might specialize in new construction, countless others focus their efforts on home renovations and additions. By enabling you to pursue fixer-upper properties in your home search, these contractors can help you to secure an excellent home investment.

By purchasing a fixer-upper and performing the necessary renovations, you can save thousands upon thousands of dollars in comparison to the purchase of a move-in ready property. In enlisting the assistance of a general contractor, especially one like Bakker Construction, you know that all of your bases are covered. You can trust that all required licensing and insurance are in place to protect your property, and that skilled professionals are completing work on your property. After you purchase your home, a general contractor can assess your remodeling needs, plan projects that will alleviate your home’s issues, and hire trusted, licensed subcontractors who will complete all necessary jobs—this alone saves you the time and energy it would take an inexperienced homeowner to find tradesmen for each phase of a project. The general contractor will closely confer with you to ensure that the renovations suit your preferences and your budget, and be the facilitator of communication from beginning to end of any size project.

Bakker Construction specializes in assisting homeowners with the completion of renovations, additions, and remodeling projects. These projects can help you to obtain the home of your dreams even if you are constrained by a limited budget. Furthermore, Bakker Construction is extensively experienced with 203k rehabilitation loans. These loans are distributed by the HUD to enable homeowners of all financial backgrounds to perform necessary renovation projects. Bakker Construction can help you to navigate the details of the 203k program, enabling you to take complete advantage of the investment opportunities available to you.

Enlisting the aid of an experienced contracting company like Bakker Construction is always a wise choice. Whether you wish to transform your kitchen, add style to your master bedroom, or add an entirely new room to your home, general contractors can help you to plan and execute the projects that will fulfill your every desire and need.
