I am a residential contractor of 30+ years, new construction and remodeling. Also doing a bit of Real Estate on the side. If my customers would ever let me, I wouldn't mind trying Real Estate full time but, that's just a reoccurring dream I have about the grass being greener over there. I found your site because I never seem to know all the answers no matter how long I do this work. (Especially in remodeling older homes.) So, I'm happy to glean/scrounge a bit of others experience.
