Three Type's of Business Models

There are 3 types of pricing that you can choose from when it comes to building or renovating your home.
Fixed price. This is what most people are initially attracted too because the cost is known up front. However most contractors do not disclose their markup which can be up to 50% depending on your project and any changes are heavily penalized often referred to change order fees. You are limited on any input you have and are kept in the dark throughout most of the project and these contractors are often incentivized to cut corners and use cheaper or inferior products to increase their profitability. Especially if something doesn’t go the way they expected. It is a good contractor profit model but not ideal for the homeowner.
The second is cost plus or time and materials which is based on actually costs to the contractor plus an agreed upon management fee. Many people prefer this model because they have more freedom for the selections and options they choose. However a lot of contractors fail to explain their fees in an easy to understand way and because of this clients are often blindsided by a final bill at the end of the job that catches them off guard.
The last option is a mix between the two which we often refer to as a hybrid format. This provides the best qualities of fixed pricing and cost plus and is by far the most transparent and favourable way to manage a project today. You play a central roll in the selection of sub contractors and all costs are determined and agreed upon before construction starts. You get the same pricing on material and labour as the builder gets. You also get to see all invoices, all quotes, all receipts and deal with zero change order fees. A simple open book model that holds the contractor accountable. Finally a business model that gives you leverage!
Mavish Academy is setting an example for transparency in the industry while producing profitable construction companies with predicatable profit.

The construction industry is a difficult place to run a business and it seems every home project goes sideways. Trying to figure it out through trial and error is costly and can add a ton of unwanted stress. These courses will set the foundation to launch or restructure your contracting business and establish the systems and repeatable strategies you will need to run a profitable contracting business.

Contractors need an effective sales funnel that each and every lead goes through that qualifies the correct clients and lands the projects their company deserves. Now contractors can educate themselves on how a professional general contractor would approach a project and reduce the stress or costly mistakes they will inevitably make when starting out. Our course bundle is just for them!

The term “sales funnel,” is used to describe the entire sales process, from initial contact to purchase. With such a high cost, construction sales tends to be a much longer process than most. Learn the shortest most effective sales process “funnel” you can use for home renovation or new build clients. It is proven that sales is 10X more important than any other part of your business. You cannot be ignoring this!

In our condensed sales course you will quickly learn things like a sales process which starts from the very first phone call. How do you qualify your client? What questions should you be asking them? We include example’s and templates to follow and implement. This is so straightforward and invaluable.

How do you properly plan your pre-construction phase to ensure construction success? How do you estimate and manage the budget?

Our estimating planning and construction course teaches how to develop a detailed project scope and accurate budget. Learn important project management skills necessary to run small to massive projects. Learn the correct workflow. Who do I contact first? Do I contact an architect, interior designer or engineer and what about permits? We also cover things like the importance of contingencies, time management and contractor responsibilities. Download and print off our templates, meetings agendas, project workflows, risk control and much more and create your company systems today. 

Being organized and efficient with your time is necessary if you want a healthy work life balance. Setting up computer folders, files, construction contracts, sub-contracts, implementing construction software, setting boundaries with trades and clients, company marketing and business or project oversight is all fundamental. We cover this all here with our Mavish Academy affordable consulting services. All you have to do is schedule a coaching session and we will establish the priorities, goals and to-do’s recommended to achieve the results you are looking for.
