Software for tracking renovations

5 Replies

Not sure if this is the proper category so please forgive me if so.

Does anyone on BP use Wave Financial accounting app to track their rehab projects?  If not what would you recommend?

Just closed on my first house and will be starting renovations soon.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Congratulations on buying your first house! My wife (and I) uses Wave for accounting in her photography business. It's very easy to learn, setup, and use. The fact that it's free for an individual freelancer without employees is also nice. If all you are looking to do is the financial accounting for your renovation, then Wave would definitely work.

I am planing for a new basement renovation like 2 bedroom full bathroom, Kitchen and concrete stair exit from side. Is this software can help to manage expenses and payout.where to get it. Thanks

The accounting program will allow you to track expenses through reports. You need to enter each expense as an accounting transaction. I've used many accounting programs over the years and although I've never used Wave, I'm guessing the program lacks the reports you may be looking for. Accounting for construction project management is a niche product. You should try Wave since its free to see if it can meet your needs.
