I am an investor. I just purchased 60 properties and will be purchasing more, I am seeking a professional construction company that can rehab my properties and receive payments as the homes are fixed up and rented out!. Once homes are rehabbed your company will be paid. LETS WORK SOMETHING OUT!. Of course as buisness grows you will receive payments more quickly but we can grow together.
I am willing to offer your company the entire contract if you are willing to work with me in the beginning. I am looking to move fast and buy 400 properties in the next year.
I am looking to start asap.Call Jennifer 313-742-xxxx
Also willing to include a home rent free

Do investors and others really think contractors are starving this much for work? What do you think.  I’d like to here your replies.
