Repair cost referee

I have been looking at using this new website that calculates the cost of repairs based on the home inspection report. It claims fast turnaround, impartial judgement and a bunch of other features for a flat fee. Has any one here in the market place used it? I think this would speed up the negotiation and closing timeframes and give me a repair cost analysis that I can use to vet contractors with.

The only issue with something like that is that there is more than one way for someone to knock out a job when quoting it.  There are a lot of little details that many people never take into consideration when vetting someone.  Sometimes a quote from one contractor may be a bit higher, but it takes into account items that require foresight.  Many contractors will bid a job low, and then include extras.  Just keep this in mind.  You want someone who will give you a comprehensive quote.
