Home Advisors is advertising that they are equivalent to Angie's List, and that they are better because they are free to the consumer.
Here's the bad news, they are VERY EXPENSIVE for the contractors!!!
The customer contacts them for a bid/estimate and Home Advisors contacts the contractors that PAY to be listed with them. Each lead that is emailed to the contractor costs us contractors on average $30 per lead, that's just a lead, no guarantee that you are getting the job!!!!
Angie's list has a yearly charge to the customer of $35 to be able to read all the reviews of the contractors listed for the type of work they are looking for.
We contractors that are listed with Angies List also pay a fee to Angies list to advertise with them, but it's totally realistic. At $30 per Lead this could drive a small company to bankruptcy.
Review about: Homeadvisor Leads.
Reason of review: Not as described.
Monetary Loss: $500.
I didn't like: False leads they charge for, Pricing, Unsolicited leads, Unsolicited charges, Expensive for contractors.
