“No, as the Realtor You Can’t Act as the Contractor”

“No, as the Realtor You Can’t Act as the Contractor”

 

 

He probably won't call until tomorrow. I was looking into the GC situation. I am a realtor and can act in the capacity of GC in new construction. Being Tim's realtor makes sense, for I am his landlord. What do you think?

 

How in heavens name is this person a Realtor? The clients Realtor, landlord and general contractor, anything else we can add to this list?

 

I explained that the contractor needs to be licensed and the license has to be valid. I figured I better add that to the conversation and the response was. “Well it was worth a try. I am always thinking outside the box”.

 

I eventually had a conversation with the client and these two are a perfect match. He spent time telling me what a racket these lenders are and how they are always looking to bleed the consumer dry. He also let me know that the town may not allow him to get a permit as they secretly want to use the property as a park.

 

The odds of this transaction ever coming to reality are slim to none but I will play along a little longer, as it is pretty funny.
