Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.
