Fair Market Value– noun– selling price for an item to which a buyer and can seller agree.
Many clients find it challenging to understand the pricing of construction. Even when they attempt to do their research, they receive a vast price range of estimates.
At FairTradeWorks, we understand your confusion. So as a third party service, we save you time. You no longer have to contact trades yourself to obtain an estimate. We do that for you with an increased volume of estimates. We don’t get 3, 5 or even 10 trades to bid on projects. We send it off to our large pool of trades professionals. You can rest assured that the trades we deal with are all vetted and qualified, with proven portfolios. On top of that, we create an exact scope of work before entering the tendering process, which allows the trades to be exact on their pricing and be very competitive. This is how we obtain fair market value for clients.
At FairTradeWorks, we do not do the construction or building of your project. Our company is a construction brand that serves as a third party advocate. We act on your behalf to ensure you receive quality work, FAIR pricing and legal protection. Our goal is to be your construction brand for life, so your satisfaction means everything to us.
Project managers have a pool of trades that work for them continuously. There is a loyalty that exists when it comes to pricing jobs and timelines. At FairTradeWorks, our 400+ trades pool compete for the work and pricing. The winning bid signs a contract with us and our Advisor monitors their work.
We do not charge our trades to be in our pool. But they do have to obey our code of conduct, produce quality work and uphold our agreements. We handle the client care for our trades, which allows them to focus on quality and efficiency. It keeps things fair for all parties. Hence our name FairTradeWorks.
We want to be by your side through EVERY construction project. Whether we are updating your washroom, or building your dream store front, office, or building, you should be able to trust that if it has to do with construction, we are here for you.
