Sounds like an OK idea to me. While you are trying to carve up a niche for yourself (rehab for investors), I would suspect that you’ll actually become a contractor for all types of repairs.
However, if you can think of a way to market yourself solely to investors, you may have an idea. For me, timing is critical on a rehab – the taxes, insurance, and, if applicable, loan payments need to be made and I have an asset (the house) that is not rentable. Therefore, to control my costs and improve my profit (assuming I intend to sell), I need the contractors in and out.
Good luck to you.
