What Are Our Customers Saying?

We hear from our customers frequently and the feedback is great. We thought we'd share some real world comments about the home building cost estimating programs of Resi-Cost with you:

"Resi-Cost allows me to get involved with the details; gives me a pre-construction learning experience and will elevate my skill-set prior to negotiating/working with a builder. It is the only program...that allows an owner such as myself to fairly accurately cost out a house. The level of granularity is excellent. There is enough detail to get costs that are fairly accurate and not too much detail that would "snow" a user. Your Help sections are excellent and very useful as well... ALL IN ALL A GREAT INTERACTIVE TOOL FOR COSTING A HOME!!!!" P.M.- Hudson, FL

"The program was easy to use, and it seems very thorough." D.M. - Pittsburgh, PA

"The program is beats the cr** out of those free sites!" B.R. - Columbia, SC

"We are in the early planning stages for a home we plan to build ourselves. When I started with [LITE] we only had a very rough guess at what our project might cost to build. After using [LITE], we wanted a more detailed look at the specifics of the project, so we upgraded to the [FULL FUNCTION] version.

The process of going through the program, and completing the questionnaire took about an hour. It uncovered details that I hadn't even considered yet. By using the [BASELINE] and changing to the [ALTERNATE] project, you can easily see how changes affect the total cost of the project, and find a balance between your needs and wants." P.B.- Lincoln, NE

"The [Resi-Cost] Full Function report obviously gives more information useful to an average person like myself. It helps one understand which components of the building structure are more expensive than others and being able to quantify these differences puts things in perspective." T.T. - Saddle River, NJ
