I do mostly P&P work and paying $10 per estimate seems a little excessive. P&P bids for real work rarely get approved, and when using it for a BATF for lets say bush trimming, $10 doesn't seem fair. Is there an alternative software that either is a flat fee or charges monthly with unlimited estimates instead?

RepairBASE pricing can be discounted based on volume, and we are pretty flexible based on your needs. PM me and let me know how many reports a month you would run. On the website is a list of standard block sizes for purchase too. Or call 949-470-9534 and ask for James -- tell him I referred you to get bulk pricing.

You seem to have missed my points. We are supposed to use an estimator every time we submit a bid. I do hundreds, sometimes thousands of orders a month to which maybe 5% of bids are approved. It is a waste of money when bids are rarely approved. I was looking for an alternative that has maybe a monthly fee instead

Im pretty sure I know the answer to this as it has been asked before, and I believe it is no. Does repairbase take into consideration the client discount that contractors are required to give the Nats?

The prices are not discounted to reflect the discounting you may provide to nationals -- and there is also no real way for us to know what discounts or reductions each regional, national, bank, etc might impose.

So, why is there not a line item at the bottom to enter the discount with the calculations automated? Seems pretty simple.

Makes you wonder who funded the research and development of the program.

The program was not designed specifically for preservation work. The bluebook, which owns RB, has been in the construction business for a long time. There is a section for profit.

Straight from the horses mouth...just seems like discount is something 99% of REO/PP guys deal with and why it's not standard equip seems odd.

Why does HUD seem to find all the ways to make RepairBase lie and not reflect real market pricing? Or is RepairBase always just assuming that the person doing to the repair is a $10 per hour part time employee of HUD and not a professional business with employees and overhead.

Guess I'll be doing it the hard way.

We use repairbase and love it. Yes, it is 9.99 a bid BUT you can edit that bid 20+ times so we actually can bid 10 different properties off of one bid. And it is super easy to use. And once you do a few of them you can make a master bid sheet based off of its pricing so honestly it is worth the $50 you may spend in bids. and we don't typically use their pricing, we adjust it lower or higher depending on the client and the situation. It is a good BASE pricing software.
