I have little doubt that an absentee sale could have been problematic. You facilitated everything and I don't think things could have gone more smoothly. I appreciate your attention to detail and keeping me posted each step of the way.

Consulting

For Home Sellers / Real Estate Agents

For homeowners listing their home for sale by themselves or with a local real estate agent, fixing up the house for sale is often a topic of discussion and/or dissention.  And with so many homes on the market, it is imperative that your house stand out.  But making the home stand with as little invested capital as possible is the key to success. Working together, we can narrow in on the areas of improvement and from that develop a Scope of Work with associated estimated cost.  There is no obligation on your part to do any of the work we suggest.  Nor is there any obligation to use Grau Building Company should you decide to do some or all of the work.  Our job is to provide you with realistic labor and material quotes for a given Scope of Work and let you decide what to do.  Our fee is $65/hour and a typical consulting engagement is 8 hours, broken down as follows:

 

  • on-site visit and evaluation (2 hours)
  • preparation of estimated costs (5 hours)
  • presentation of findings (1 hour)

 

We are confident that you will find our service worth well in excess of our fee.

For Home Buyers / Investors

If you are in the market for a home as a primary residence or as an investment, understanding the true value of the home is a crucial part in negotiating a fair price.  Often times home buyers and investors cannot see past the cosmetic deficiencies in a home and may place more cost to remedy those items than necessary.  This weakens your negotiating position by having incomplete information.

 

We will meet with you on-site and go evaluate your concerns.  These could be in the form of an inspection report or through your personal evaluation of the property. From there we will put together a Scope of Work to determine the amount of capital you should expect to invest in the property to bring it up to your standards.  There is no obligation on your part to do any of the work we suggest.  Nor is there any obligation to use Grau Building Company should you decide to do some or all of the work.  Our job is to provide you with realistic labor and material quotes for a given Scope of Work and let you decide what to do.  Our fee is $65/hour and a typical consulting engagement is 8 hours broken down as follows:

 

  • on-site visit and evaluation (2 hours)
  • preparation of estimated costs (5 hours)
  • presentation of findings (1 hour)

 

We are confident that you will find our service worth well in excess of our fee.
