How much does it cost to build a house? The ability to answer this question accurately and immediately is vital to every function of a home builders’ business. Residential construction estimating software is a standard feature in MarkSystems® software and allows home builders to develop accurate job estimates quickly and easily. Developed specifically for semi-custom and production home builders, MarkSystems uses a product-based orientation to pre-define costs at both base house and option levels.
Develop accurate job estimates quickly and easily
Automatically generate bid worksheets for every trade involved in construction.
Sales and design consultants always have up-to-the-minute information for selections and pricing.
Get a complete and accurate final estimate for construction.
With MarkSystems, estimates can be generated to suit each individual home builder's need and the type of home being built. Data for estimates can be imported and historical data can be used to generate an estimate in seconds.
Formalize estimates by automatically generating bid worksheets and sending supplier price requests. These can also be posted automatically to the vendor portal via the Internet ToolKit™, reducing effort and ensuring consistency across all trades.
Bid worksheets and supplier price lists can be imported into MarkSystems through a simple copy/paste feature. By leveraging a single system, your product level master budgets are automatically updated so the system always knows the exact cost and the cost of the next new construction project.
Since every user shares information in the same system, sales and design consultants use up-to-the-minute information for selections and pricing. This enables them to configure a home in real-time, building incremental profits into every home sale.
Once the sale is accepted, job estimates are created automatically based on the configuration agreed on by the customer and defined by the sales team. Coupled with product estimates defined within MarkSystems, you get a complete and accurate final estimate for construction.
