1. Get your bids in fast.
Whether they’re undertaking a large home addition or a smaller project like adding kitchen cabinets, homeowners tend to be eager to get the ball rolling on home renovations. That means the faster you get your bid in, the better chance it has of being chosen. Aside from showing that you are responsive and care about the client’s timeline, being the first to respond means you have no other competitors at that point—making it easier to stand out and be the leader of the pack.
Need time saving tips to figure out how to bid on remodeling jobs faster? You can greatly reduce time spent on tasks such as building estimates and proposals with software like Houzz Pro, which has an easy-to-use takeoffs tool.
With the takeoffs tool, you can quickly and accurately measure and count everything you need for a project to create a precise cost estimate. “This accurate takeoff system has increased my turnaround rate by 70%,” says concrete and paving specialist Cruz Hernandez. “Previously I was losing time printing plans and spending money to employ a guy to bid four jobs a day. Now I do it all myself.”
By increasing efficiency in creating takeoffs, estimates and proposals, you won’t just be able to submit bids faster; you’ll have more time to double-check your bids.
