Ok, you’ve been through the FHA 203k Rehab Loan California process:

  • Home Buyers have gotten an executed purchase contract, has chosen a general contractor 
  • Home Buyer have completed consultant review
  • Buyer of the fixer upper has ordered the home appraisal for a FHA 203k Rehab Loan California
  • FHA 203k Borrowers have done all their homework
  • Borrower has produced the seemingly endless stream of documents
  • Mortgage Borrower have closed on their FHA 203k Rehab Loan California
  • As soon as home buyer get the keys, call contractor and meet them at the property to go over their strategy and timelines for construction draws

Starting Construction Project

What work will be done first and an estimate of when it will be complete.

  • Do this for the entire project
  • Write it down.
  • In a nice way, it is becoming the squeaky wheel and creating an accountability system
  • Contractors will always put their resources where they feel the most heat
  • It’s the nature of the construction business that their resources are stretched while doing multiple projects
  • Some of their clients will get fast service, some will suffer.
  • By creating an accountability system,  give yourself the edge over someone who has not been proactive with the contractor

Supervising The FHA 203k Rehab Loan California Contractor

Ask for weekly updates. A simple two minute phone call to check and see if they’re on schedule.

  • This is an important step
  • If the contractor knows that the homeowner is going to call him every Saturday at 9:30 in the morning for status, you’ve created an accountability system that will last until move in new home
  • Contrast that to the client that didn’t meet and calls once a month only to find that the contractor has been spending all his or her time and resources at your house

At the end of the day contractors are good solid construction professionals and do a great job, but a little accountability goes a long way. Spending a
little time now will save you a lot of time and headaches later.
