RenovationReady™ has partnered with http://www.remodelormove.com to help consumers accurately estimate the costs of home remodel projects with its easy-to-use remodel cost calculators. Calculators may be accessed at no charge and no obligation at http://www.renovationready.com.
“Whether you’re planning a simple kitchen or bathroom upgrade, finishing an attic or renovating an entire home, it’s important to estimate the project costs early in the planning process in order to make informed decisions about remodeling and financing options,” said Jim Fraser of RenovationReady™. “Home remodel calculators are also practical tools for loan officers looking to assist their clients with a FHA 203k or FNMA Homestyle renovation loan for the purchase or refinance of a home in need of repair.”
Home remodel cost calculators provide instant estimates. Using an advanced algorithm that starts with a basic project cost, the calculators adjust the cost based upon the consumer’s responses to a series of questions. Questions include: property zip code, age of home, value of home, type of project, source of project plans, and other input variables.
“We urge consumers to educate themselves on the renovation process. The online home remodel calculators are a great starting point in the planning process,” Fraser said.
