There are many professionals and contractors needed for development of a parcel of land. To successfully build any site whether commercial, residential, or any other classification, it is best to explore all options and choices. With the economy still in limbo, some investors especially the less experienced ones might opt to save a few dollars by contracting or hiring the cheapest available company. Better yet, some may even elect o hire friends. Now, there is nothing wrong with these instances, but more often than not these agreements do not work.
Always remember "you get what you pay for." Don't skip the important steps and the important aspects of hiring the right contractor or professional. Trying to maximize profits in the building stage will definitely have an affect on the investors judgment. A few extra thousands or millions are worth the gamble during and after construction. However, a poor building or a cracked foundation is not worth the few dollars you might save.
