Consider Hiring a Handyman for Your Wellesley Home

With the holidays coming up, it may make sense to hire a handyman for smaller tasks in your Wellesley home. Here are a few tips to find a handyman.

Perhaps you have some home projects you just can’t find the time (or inclination) to start. With the holidays coming up, it may make sense to hire a handyman for smaller tasks. Do you have someone you already use or are you stumped wondering where to turn? No matter the answer, these tips can help you find someone in no time!

Decide on Your Project - Smaller repair projects are perfect for a handyman. However if you want a remodel, plumbing, or electrical work done, it may be best to turn to a contractor licensed in that field of work.

Ask Around - Your neighbors and friends are great sources for referrals on home repairs. As a real estate agent, I also work with many contractors and handymen and can give you some ideas, too, on who to contact, depending on the scope of your project.

Determine the Cost - Find out how much the work will cost before it’s started. Sometimes services are billed hourly with you supplying materials, sometimes hourly plus parts, and oftentimes you can agree on a lump sum to make it easiest.

One Project at a Time - Your handyman may have many talents, but you’ll want to test his skills before laying out too many projects in the beginning. On the other hand, creating a a small package deal may work to your financial advantage. If he has good or great recommendations and provides financial incentive for a multi-layer job, it may be worth considering.

Hopefully these ideas will help you as you find ways to spruce up your home and glide easily into the holiday season. If you need suggestions on who to call for referrals or other home related needs, please keep me in mind.  You can always consider me your source for advice relating to your home and the local real estate market.
