There’s so many professionals that can help you when renovating or building your home. Read on for a list, and an outline of who does what.
Are you confused about who you’ll need on your team to renovate or build your home? And the role that they’ll perform?
Homeowners often tell me they are. They’re not sure who to speak to first, what costs to expect from everyone, how to know if they’re finding the right people, and when to get them on board.
And sometimes they also don’t understand why they’ll need a specific professional.
I’m not talking about tradespeople here. This is about all the various roles and professionals you may have on board up to the point you commence construction. And then some you need to keep on board, and some you don’t – whilst you build your home.
Some professionals are essential. For example you legally require them to get your project finished. Or alternatively they’re necessary, because they perform a required role as part of you getting your project built or renovated.
And other professionals will be a choice. For example, you might get an architect, a building designer, or a draftsperson to design your home. Or you may choose to design it yourself. Now – of course, that’s not something I recommend – but it is possible!
And it’s important, when setting your budget, that you have an understanding of who you’ll need, why you’ll need them, what they do and will charge for it, and when they need to come on board.
In this episode, I go through a list of professionals you may need for your project – and outline the role that each performs. I also help you with recommendations about where to start, and how to assess their fees.
