Rehab Estimate Calculator

5 Replies

Hello, 

We do a lot of work on the houses and properties we buy. On average of $15-20K per house.

I need a tool that will let me add in tasks to be done and calculate and estimate after inspection.

For example,  Need 5 new windows, need shower head, the paint job in all walls, etc.... and once I'm done with everything at the end of would give me a ballpark estimate of cost and what exactly needs to be done so I can communicate with my contractors.

Do you know if anything of this sort is available in the market currently?

Hi Kirtan,

I have a rehab estimating spreadsheet in my BP fileplace that may be handy:

It has a list of common repairs and ballpark prices that you can use to create an estimate for your project.

Are you looking for a spreadsheet or an app?

Hello David,

We have tried flipper force but the website didn't seem to work properly so we had to move on.

We're looking for an app but spreadsheet works fine as well.

Okay, I do recall chatting back in July which is right around when we were working on some performance enhancements to improve load times of the Estimator (now working much faster), but I am not aware of any major issues specifically with the Estimator.

As a software developer, it's always helpful to hear feedback if you find a bug.  Although we are using our software everyday, we can't fix something if we don't know it's broken. 😉

Thanks for your feedback.
