6 questions to ask before hiring a contractor for your Dacula and Gwinnett County home

When you're ready to remodel, make sure you're hiring the best contractor. Here are six key questions to ask.

1. Can you itemize your bid?  Some contractors like to give one total price for the project. Always ask for an itemized bid with costs for all elements of the job-demolition, framing, plumbing, electrical, materials, and such. This helps with comparing bids and lets you see options for cutting costs. If you decide not to do part of the job, it shows how much you should be credited for eliminating that work. 

2. Is your bid a fixed price or an estimate?  With an estimate, the final bill can wind up higher, so always ask for a fixed price bid. If the contractor

In the woods, squirrels appear as harmless and delightful creatures. In your home, they are as dangerous and detrimental as rats. When squirrels invade your home or business, they can cause significant damage. Inside buildings, they tend to chew on wires and destroy insulation in attics and walls.

Where are Hamilton Mill and Dacula home prices heading? Up. Yes, I said it. Prices are going up and will continue to do so for the next few years.

I was recently asked to contribute to a article in the Dacula Patch on home pricing and my repsonse was that "Hermes expects to see that trend continue over the short term despite the potential influx of sellers. "I would expect a 4-6 percent appreciation over the next year and then continue this trend for a few years," he said.

While I caught some flack for this from some in the real estate industry I do

Hamilton Mill subdivision market update - October 2013. 

Hamilton Mill subdivision has seen a strong real estate market in 2013 with a total of 94 homes sales thru November 12, 2013 according to the FMLS listing service. 

Currently there are only 26 homes actively for sale in the FMLS listing service. This is a definite advantage to anyone looking to sell a home. As inventory falls, this creates more of a Sellers market and winter is a great time to sell. 

If you or someone you know is looking to buy, sell or invest in real estate please give us a call. 678.775.2787.

Some areas of Dacula have seen a good rise in values but across the board and in the higher price points the trend is much smaller than the numbers I see from Zillow.
