Topic: Ghar Expert Estimator Tool questions

I have a few questions regarding the Estimator:

1. formerly it used to have estimator for different cities - Chennai and Kolkatta I believe.  Now it is just Delhi.  Are there any plans to add other cities, specifically Bangalore is what I am looking for.

2. The costs in the estimator - do they reflect the latest values, how often are these numbers updated in your database.

3. I did one estimation and the costs that it shows seem to be quite low as compared to discussions on other boards by a factor of close to 2.   How can I find out what is the actual value in the current times.

In the end, I know we need to get an architect and contractor who will do the estimation, but I want to have an idea before I start my budgeting and applying for loans from the bank.

thank you very much.

Dear Mr. Smith,
Thanks a lot for posting to the GharExpert forum section.  Here are the details about the Estimator.

1) The cost estimator tool provides 2 types of information, the quantity of material required and the rates in an area. The quantity of the material required for a construction job remains consistent however the rates of the raw material vary from place to place and we currently update the rates in Delhi area only.  For other areas, you can cross check one or two raw material items and understand the approximate variation from the Delhi rates.

2) The cost of the estimator reflect the latest values with a tolerance of 5%.  The idea is to provide a rough estimate to the reader so that he understands the various options available to him and the cost associated with it.

3) The cost of a construction job depends on the specification of the job. For example, if you choose cement flooring in cost estimator it might cost upto 1/4th compared to marble flooring. So once you enter the specifications correctly you would see that the cost estimator would return a very close estimate.  

The idea of the estimator is to let users play with the various options, understand their relative advantages and disadvantages and the cost implication of the various options. Along with each option we have articles that explain the best practices associated with each process or material.

Please let me know if you need additional information.

At this point we would also like to note that we have a paid service of "Detailed Cost Estimate" where we provide a detailed estimate based on the architectural plan of the building. In order to prepare this estimate we research the prevailing rates in the area and calculate every minute detail about the project.

A sample of the detailed cost estimate is available at the link below.

You can order the service through the link below.

If you need Architectural or Interior Designing services, please send your requirement to Support@GharExpert.com so that we can connect you to the  relevant teams for further execution.

Regards
Gunjan
