Now That's a Good Estimate

by Michael Stone

I was talking with a coaching client today, Gary Palmer from Palmer Custom Builders in Charlotte, N.C. Gary has always been a student of this business and it has really paid off for him.

He just recently completed a $90,781 contract that had $7,752 in additional work added for a total contract price of $98,533.

When the job was complete, his cost estimate was within $3.94 of his actual job cost. Congratulations Gary, that is good estimating.


Has anymore used iQuicks estimator Appp in the apple app store? I heard its really good for estimating projects.
