Getting The Jobs Done
As you can see from the rest of our site, we are a local company who purchases, renovates, and sells houses. We live by our mission of “Turning Houses into Homes”.
We renovate 40+ homes annually. We need good home contractors on our team to help us make this happen.
Let us explain how we work with residential contractors, our expectations, and what you can expect from Signature Home Buyers:
We are very loyal once we find good home contractors.
Steady work year round in the Capital New York Region.
Checks or Direct Deposit payments issued within 48 hours per completed Phase.
Fair pricing and a written agreement detailing your payment schedule.
A detailed Scope of Work outlining room by room exactly what needs to be done.
A simple way to add any extras as they arise, to avoid end of the job conflicts.
Honest, fair, respectful, and professional dealings.
We will not ask you to hide, or cob anything on a house.
We are available throughout the day for questions or discussions about the project.
We LOVE to pay our residential contractors, because that means the job is getting done!!!
As a building contractor, you will need to provide a Certificate of Liability Insurance as well as Workers Compensation. We will also request references of the last three jobs that you have worked on. Please visit our Before & After page to view what type of houses we buy, and what we require our finished work to look like. Our building contractors need to be skilled in (or be able to sub out), general construction knowledge, installing new kitchens, installing new baths, installation of new doors and windows, tile, paint, basic plumbing and electrical, sheetrock, taping, framing, insulation, and some structural repairs.
These are the qualities that we look for in a NY Construction Company and their crew. These are in no specific order, as they are all equally important in creating a long-term working relationship.
Quality Our homes sell very quickly because we take a lot of pride in creating a beautiful home for a new family. The work needs to be done to code, and all finishing touches are completed. Our homes are in move-in condition when they are completed.
Price In our business, in order to be able to purchase these homes, we are not able to pay top dollar as a typical homeowner might be able to. However, we do pay a very fair rate. As a contractor, one of the bonuses in working with us is that we provide extremely consistent work, all year long, and you NEVER have to chase us for your money!
Time When buying, renovating, and selling homes, time is of the essence. The success of our business depends largely on how quickly we can get in and out of a house. The success of YOUR construction company also largely depends on the same thing. The more quickly a home is finished, the sooner you can start on the next one, therefore, increasing the amount of money you will make.
Integrity, Honesty & Respect We need to trust our residential contractors to do the work outlined, and make every effort to complete it in the timeline set. We need to trust our contractor to be a person of their word. A respectful, peaceful working relationship is also expected when dealing with anyone on our staff, investors, potential buyers, vendors, suppliers, other contractors, etc. You can expect the same integrity, honesty, and respect from us. When working with us, we always honor our word, and we expect the people that work with us to always do the same.
Communication & Dependability We realize that things don’t always go as planned on the jobsite, or personal issues may occasionally arise. In the event of this, we want to be informed and come up with a solution together. We also expect for you to be at the jobsite daily and put in a good day’s work. In the event that you are not able to be at the jobsite due to an emergency, or illness, we expect a phone call letting us know. We also like to work with genuinely nice people that enjoy what they do, and are easy to get along with.
