If you’re going to get into mobile home and/or real estate investing, it’s very important to know the basics of home repair. There will be times when repairs will need to be made. Even if you decide not to do the repairs yourself and decide to hire a contractor(s), it’s important to know home repair basics so you know exactly what’s involved for each project. (Note: One thing about contractors, you will always want to get at least 3 opinions for each project. This way, you can get a feel for rates in your area. Also, you can always negotiate whether or not you want to provide materials and just pay for labor, or both. The choice is up to you).
