Estimated repair costs

I’m going to admit my fear to hopefully find wisdom and maybe help others who feel the same!  


I have read/studied more on this website and books than I can actually remember.  I found a house that was very run down (needed roof, some slab work, dry wall and paint) but, have no clue how to estimate costs.

I listen to Brandon on how he walks through the house and records notes per room.  I love that but, I have no clue what value to estimate on fixes.  I get scared thinking I will way under value fixes and get totally hosed on a deal.

I’m studying, putting in effort, have a real estate guy.  But this hurdle is killing me!!!  

What do I do?  I’m just trying to start so the 2 good contractors I know are kinda wait and see if I’m worth their effort and time (I totally understand that).

OK, go ahead and light me up but please at least be informative and thank you in advance.
