Home-Cost Overview

What is Home-Cost?

Home-Cost is a cloud-based residential cost estimating solution, which helps businesses in the construction sector manage labor and material costs for building projects. Key features include budget notes creation, data export, price breakdown, and reporting.

The application enables contractors to synchronize budgets with location zip codes, in order to evaluate factors such as sales tax, outdoor design temperature, employee wages, and product costs associated with the area. Property owners can use the solution to analyze the financial impact of selected designs using a multi-variable model based on parameters such as quality, size, and price. Home-Cost offers a range of home design and material options, helping teams select suitable construction items such as countertops or flooring.

Home-Cost allows users to edit cost estimates and modify unit prices and component descriptions relative to the property. Using the control panel, supervisors can manage project information, track client details, restore/delete previous estimate data, and purchase or cancel project accounts.

Best online home cost estimating software

It takes a little practice to become proficient at using the software, but once learned, I can prepare a cost estimate for a home in under 4 hours. I like that you can get within about 5% +/- with somewhat limited information. The type of information on a Magazine or web page design, along with knowing the level of finishes, will allow you to complete the estimate. I like that you can share the information with prospective clients from a general level to extremely detailed. Using the program gives confidence to them in our expertise. It works well as a "Reality Check" for clients whose expectations are too high. It prevents wasted design time by then allowing you to design to a budget.

This is a unique, professional, and more inclusive estimating program that is locally accurate

Unlike most of the estimating programs out there, Home-Cost has a system based a approach which is reality, we cannot have a particular material without its supporting building materials and installation. Also, Home-Cost has the ability to be sensitive to local building markets as well as offer a variety of qualities and options.

Home-Cost is a more sophisticated and easier approach to a very complex issue.

Excellent Tool....sharp as a chisel

I've used this program for many years. It is an excellent tool to help alleviate a clients concerns over the cost of a new home. It gives them a very open book view of the details of where the costs come from and how their decisions affect the bottom line. It allows the client to take a level of control when they need it the most.
