Does anyone have anything specific apps they use to estimate rehab material cost? I plan on fixing the house up myself so I dont need the contractor labor portion. Thanks for any tips!
@Cade Andersen If you are going to do it yourself, make a list and go to a building supply store to price it out. Otherwise, pay a contractor to give you a quote on materials, keeping in mind they often get a discount on supplies.
BP has a Rehab Estimator tool which you can find under the Tools tab along the navbar.
Another thing to consider is JScott's Book on Estimating Rehab Costs which includes a spreadsheet template that you can use.
Otherwise, I have also uploaded a spreadsheet to my BP fileplace which has a repair estimator tool and a database of common material items and prices that you can use as a starting point.
Otherwise, there are web based apps that have similar functionalities to the spreadsheets that I could recommend if you are looking for something more mobile?
Thank you sir and yes I was hoping for an app I could use on the spot to know my cost to make an offer without have to go back to my house to do the research on product costs.
Nailed-it.app is a great website but I can’t figure out how to embed it as app
