Australia's realestate.com.au has launched a renovation calculator to help visitors estimate the cost of their dream renovation. The calculator has been created in conjunction with Cordell Information, a leading authority on project activity and building cost information.
The renovation calculator asks users for the room type, measurements and the quality of finish desired. It then gives them a project cost estimate, arming them with knowledge before making a decision around buying a new property or adding value to an existing home.
Commenting on the launch of the calculator, Henry Ruiz, Chief Digital Officer at REA Group, parent company of realestate.com.au, said: “Renovating property is an exciting and stressful time for many people. realestate.com.au reaches one in five Australians planning on making renovations, alterations and refurbishments around their home, and we want to make it easier for them. The renovation calculator helps people get past the hurdle of estimating costs before they begin,” Mr Ruiz said.
Commenting on the partnership with realestate.com.au, Monisha Craig, Chief Operating Officer from Cordell said: “We’ve gathered the most comprehensive building cost data from around Australia to help people make better renovating decisions. Every aspiring renovator wants to know how much a renovation will cost before they begin. This new calculator on realestate.com.au gives them a handy estimate to help them realise their property dreams,” said Ms Craig.
