Quick Home Rehab Cost Estimates

Thinking of buying and/or rehabing a house? Below are some quick cost estimates to use as a guide.

The best estimate you're gonna get is by calling an electrician. And a plumber. And a painter. And a handyman. And a landscape design company.

Or a general contractor who can do it all or outsource to a handful of subs. But getting bids takes time.
