If you’re going to fix and flip houses for a living – whether you’ve done one or two or you’re just thinking about getting started, there are plenty of ways to make the process more profitable (and easier, too).

One of them is to avoid working with subcontractors and work only with general contractors.

While this won’t work in every situation, and it may not be the right choice for you, there’s certainly a case for working only with general contractors.

Why Should You Work Only With General Contractors?

When you put more variables into a math equation, it becomes more complex and harder to solve. The same is true in flipping houses.

You could hire one general contractor who will handle everything with his or her own subcontractors – electrical, plumbing, HVAC and everything else. If that general contractor is managing everything for you, your life becomes infinitely simpler – and while it may cost you a little more money for the convenience of having someone dot all the is and cross all the ts, you might find that it’s well worth it.
