HUD does use Repair Base, however Safeguard uses Marshal Swift. Prices are not the same either.I prefer RepairBase. My understanding is this is the same cost estimator used by HUD and by the bid desk at Safeguard. Also, if you contact them and see a demo they'll give you some free credits. Cost after that is about $10 per property, with discounts for the more you buy.
Price and profit are 2 very different things. I dont "need" software. I was asking a question. The clients I service are starting to run all my bids through an estimator and I'd like to see what they see that's all. I've used rs means since I started in 05 with little questions on price from my clients. My margins are acceptable for me and my business.Why use a software to tell you your price? If you can't make a profit send it down the road.
