Stop Ripping Me Off! is the title of a new book written by Karl Auleciems of West Lakeland Minnesota outlining a new and revolutionary way to fix, remodel or build a home. The process results in paying less, getting more home for the money, increased quality, and real protection from contractor fraud. This book and process is a “game changer” for the residential construction market and will effect large building corporations like Pulte Homes and Toll Brothers, Inc.
Karl Auleciems is an entrepreneur who started building homes as a hobby and gradually moved to building multi-mullion dollar homes for far less than what other contractors could build them for and selling them for large non-speculative gains.
Karl Auleciems writes in his book that the current home remodeling/building market is broken. Homeowners are overpaying for the remodel or build, receiving poor quality, and being put at risk for legal, financial, and health problems and don’t even know it. “We have financial advisors, legal advisors (lawyers), medical advisors (doctors), and no construction advisors, yet we spend more on our homes than all other advisor categories combined,” said Karl Auleciems.
“The secret to paying less, getting more for your money, and obtaining real protection is to use a construction advisor to represent the homeowner through the entire construction process. This construction advisor is not a contractor,” said Karl Auleciems. “The construction advisor does not build anything. Rather the construction advisor guides the homeowner through the construction process, much like a doctor guides a patient through their medical care, and represents the homeowner to the contractor. The problems result from the homeowner not knowing anything or very little about home construction. Not knowing what quality is and what it should cost. Contractors have profit motives. This creates the conflict of interest for the homeowner that is only resolved by an advisor that doesn't build the home. The great news is that even after the advisor‘s fees are figured in, the homeowner enjoys a net savings on the project as well as higher quality and real protection.”
For the first time ever, the number of single women outnumbers married women. “Single women, when going into the construction market, feel intimidated and vulnerable because the vast majority of the contractors are men. They are no longer vulnerable and intimidated when they enter the construction market when they have a construction advisor represent them,” said Karl Auleciems. “The elderly are also vulnerable.”
Karl Auleciems' process helps the homeowner by bringing the construction knowledge and experience to the average homeowner and tilts the playing field in the construction market in favor of the consumer.
