Online Contractor Referrals: The Hidden Truth – Part 3
Online Contractor Referral Sites Are A Big Business
Several days ago I wrote an article about how online contractor referral services have hidden costs for you, and in many cases do not vet contractors. Contractors pay a fee for every lead that they receive, and these costs are hidden costs of your remodeling project.
Social Media Giant, Facebook, Enters the Business
An article on BloombergBusiness states:
“Facebook Inc. is the latest technology company that wants to connect you with a handyman who can install a ceiling fan or fix a leaky toilet, following Amazon.com Inc., Google Inc. and a slew of startups seeking ways to make money from the $300 billion home-improvement market.
The social networking site is joining with Seattle startup Pro.com, which will help a Facebook Messenger user find a qualified contractor, get an instant quote and schedule an appointment within minutes on home projects from mounting a big-screen television to painting a room.”
When someone calls Leading Edge Homes, Inc. we schedule an appointment to meet with the client and SEE what the home improvement project entails. Even painting a room is not just a simple quote. What are the condition of the walls? Are the walls going to be the same color? What about the conditions/colors of the baseboards and doors? Were the walls painted properly before?
