Routine services and repairs should fall within a range of standard pricing that we have agreed to with our vendors. It is our years of on the job experience coordinating repairs and construction that allows us to know roughly what specific services should cost. In general, we do not need to get multiple bids for routine maintenance: carpet cleaning, small painting projects, small repairs, landscape cleanup and more. It is part of our management service to select the vendor that can do the best work at the best price.
For insurance claims, major renovation projects and repairs greater than $1500 or capital improvement projects like replacing an AC unit or system, replacing a roof, large painting projects; 3 or more bids/proposals will be collected and reviewed by one of the licensed CA General Contractors in our office.
