On-Demand Project Managers to Your Site! Perfect for Contractors and Home Flippers


Why is Residential Construction is Ripe for On-Demand Disruption?

With a record year for the on-demand industry in 2019, the big prediction for 2020 is that on-demand companies will expand to new industries.

This is happening now in residential construction. A common issue with residential construction is going over budget, not meeting deadlines and plainly losing (wasting) money primarily due to lack of communication.

Most contractors do not use project management software to keep their jobs in-line.

95% of all residential remodel projects end up in frustration. Homeowners go into a project excited about their contractor only to soon be in the dark about what is going on.

TRY Project Buddy Services Today!

Check out: The new on-demand startup “Project Buddy” http://www.projectbuddyservices.com is the 1st of its kind and planning to revolutionize the industry: Creating completely transparent transactions between homeowners and contractors. Simply put, Project Buddy helps organize projects.

Project Buddy
Project Buddy Founder, Robert L. Williams

“After years of consulting in the construction industry I found that almost every job had a point where the client thought they were being cheated, it was almost always due to a simple lack of communication. Construction remodel projects are very organic and change daily. I started Project Buddy to help both Contractor and client stay up-to-date on a weekly basis.”

Project Buddy, from PGN Design Group, works with a cloud-based construction software that all parties have access to with their smartphone, tablet or computer. Project Buddy finally makes it easy for homeowners to follow the progress of their construction project from anywhere and makes it easy for contractors to keep their clients updated on day-to-day progress of their projects. It works with 5 easy steps.

  1. Upload project information to Project Buddy cloud-based software.
  2. Take daily photos of the project.
  3. Create daily work logs.
  4. Contact all contractors, subs and architects for scheduling purposes.
  5. Create an “end-of-week” report for the project.

So who’s doing the actual work? Numerous “Buddy’s” manage jobs in the areas that they live in. They can work as much or as little as they want. Think of it as the “Uber for Construction Projects“.

The service will operate on weekly contracts so that there is no big commitment from homeowners or Buddy’s. For contractors, there’s no need to hire and train full-time employees only to have the burden of their salaries on the books when it gets slow.

At the end of each week, clients have the ability to either “opt-in” if they like the service or “opt-out” and we’ll see you on the next one!

Project Buddy will have the ability to do one or all of their jobs. The company is poised to disrupt the residential construction industry by helping smaller companies with growth, and larger companies with quality control. The price is $497/week for most projects, cheaper than the cost of a laborer sweeping up the site!

Why Use Them?

  1. Lost Time = Lost Money
  2. Cloud-based Software = Transparency, 24/7 access from any device.
  3. Organize contractor = Get’s the Job Done on time and on-budget!
  4. Weekly contracts = No Big Commitment
  5. One low rate for any size project (single-family or multi-family)

Project Buddy has launched in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area with expansion to other major cities in the U.S. later in the year.

This is my favorite time of year!

Not only is it a time for family, gathering, spending time, eating good food and all that, but it’s also the end of the year financially.

Between now and the middle of January, it always seems to be a frenzy.. everyone starts rushing to find and acquire the best and last investment flip projects for this year.

I notice the lenders also need to move their funds around to achieve their goals.

Great news for operators who desire to land crucial financing at the most clutch time of year..I have identified a circle of competitive lenders who desire to make loans for:

  • Fix and Flips Projects
  • Ground-up Construction
  • Joint-Ventures – 50/50 splits (lender brings acquisition+rehab+carry costs) Lender will ask you bring in the points (3-4 pts.)
  • Earnest Money loans (costs $1500)
  • 2nd Trust Deeds
  • Gap Funding
  • Multi-Family Development Or Construction
  • Lot/Vacant Land Loans
  • Large Luxury Projects (Residential/Commercial) $5M+
  • Commercial Acquisition (CA Only)
  • Leverage through Cross-Collateralization of existing assets, allowing you to purchase an additional property.
  • Rehab funders (Home-Owners who wants to take 2nd or Refi existing 1st to free up funds using equity in property
  • Bail-outs, Fire-Sales, Quick Bridge Loans
  • Transactional Funding (You must have the end buyer lined up prior to application)

Most people call me to ask what the terms of the loans will be, but unlike a bank or a single lender institution, there is no “box” that you must fit into..

I can introduce you to multiple lenders who would have interest in funding your loan, in this way you can choose the lender that you feel the most comfortable with.

One thing I’ve learned in business is that: we are business owners for a reason, we want to choose our business partners, and life is too short to deal with people who are difficult or unpleasant.

I actually get approached by lenders wanting to connect with my investor clients, and I determine if I’d work with them personally, if not, they get no love.

Most important thing to remember – Not all lenders are created equal. They may not have your best interest at heart while some can be extremely predatory..and will give you a loan with the plan to obtain the property after you fail at any point.

The lenders I work with have about $30M-$50M to make loans.

To get started: 

  • Have a deal ready to go, either a purchase with accepted contract, or refinance with equity
  • Send me a scenario
  • Lets get on the phone to discuss the scenario
  • Complete and return an application
  • After I understand the loan request, I’ll contact the check-writers and get the loan offers within 24-48 hrs.
  • I’ll contact you and introduce you to the lender with the offer that you like most.
  • After a verbal conversation, usually a site visit occurs, sometimes appraisal isn’t always needed. Some loans are even non-recourse.
  • Closing takes place typically within 14-21 days. Rinse and Repeat.
