You are searching for the perfect home, you find one that you LOVE.  The layout feels like home, but it has ugly carpet and tile counter tops.

In this market you can’t wait, you have to make an offer and decide to settle for whatever costs you may incur to make it your perfect home.  Don’t worry! I have gathered some online tools that will help you gather quotes in a hurry so you aren’t left guessing and estimating. 

HomeAdvisor

On this site, simply start typing what project you are about to undertake and then enter your zip code. The tool then will list the average cost of the home improvement project or repair in their area based on what others have paid. You can see a breakdown of cost estimates from the low to high end as well as average. The site offers a searchable database to gather estimates for endless types of home projects, repairs, installations, etc. Whether you want to find the average cost of remodeling a bathroom, kitchen, painting the exterior, installing a window, moving a wall, replacing countertops, or more.

Fixr

Another cost estimating site, called FIXR, also offers estimates on various home improvement and remodeling projects -- just plug in the project and find estimated costs as and browse a list of contractors in your area. The site also features cost guides to give you an overview of the price of tackling projects like kitchen and basement remodels as well as the costs of repairing siding, installing new windows, adding a porch or swimming pool, and more.

Bottom Line

Whether you are buying a home or selling a home, it is important to do your research and know the numbers.  As my client, I will guide you as to which renovations and repairs are going to get you the most bang for your buck and which are not worth dumping money into.
