Home remodeling expert Dan Fritschen has created a website http://www.remodelestimates.com that gives people free access to a sophisticated online calculator that provides a reliable estimate of the cost to remodel a room, add a room or remodel the entire house. The calculation can also be used to provide an estimate of the amount a home will appreciate because of the remodel.
To generate a remodeling cost and payback estimate the site asks that you identify the following information:
- Where the home is located;
- The level of material quality;
- How much work the homeowner will do themselves; and
- The assessed value of the home.
The cost estimate can be refined by entering the amount of work a homeowner wants to do and the size of the room.
One of the biggest benefits is that you can see the impact of different approaches to a remodel. The cost to remodel a bathroom can range from $3,000 to $30,000 depending on the design choices you select.
Another benefit is if you are selling your home you can use the calculator to identify and give prospective buyers a reasonable remodeling credit so they can remodel to match their tastes. The data allows you to negotiate top dollar value for your home.
The site is not intended to take the place of a professional onsite cost estimate by an experienced remodeling expert or general contracting professional.
Dan Fritschen is author of several books including Remodel or Move? Make the Right Decision, Attic Remodeling Workbook, and The Complete Remodeling Workbook and Organizer.
Media Kits available upon request. Dan Fritschen is also available for interviews.
