The concept behind DwellingCost.com was born out of the dissatisfaction that a group of appraisers had with the sources of cost data available to them. They felt that the current services were not refined enough to specific areas and that the steps in quality ratings were too broad. So they embarked on a journey to develop a cost service that would better serve the needs of real estate and insurance professionals.
A team of appraisers, other industry professionals, and data analysts was formed. Together, they developed a system to bring you the very best cost data service available.
DwellingCost.com allows users to hone in to specific geographic areas in over 40,000 US markets. Quality ratings can be adjusted to a tenth of a percent; giving users 80 levels to select from. Furthermore, the system is updated monthly to adjust for changes in building costs and local multipliers are continually monitored and fine-tuned through feedback from users.
