Home Construction App Cost Estimate

What is a home construction app?

A home construction application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that enables users to design and order home improvement projects. Home construction apps typically include tools for designing different aspects of the home: exterior, interior layout, color scheme, and floor plan. The app may also provide a way for users to upload photos of their homes so they can see how the designs will look in real life. Home construction apps are similar to other home and apartment rental apps, as well as real property management apps. Popular home construction applications include Houzz (home design), Zillow (home value), and Trulia (home value). Examples of home construction apps built with Crowdbotics:

What is the typical cost to build a home construction app?

A home construction app usually costs about $52,500 to build. However, the total cost can be as low as $35,000 or as high as $70,000. A home construction app with a low number of features (also known as a minimum viable product, or MVP) will be more affordable than an app that includes all intended functionality. For example, here are some previous home construction app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build a home construction app?

A home construction app usually takes 700 hours to build. However, a home construction app can be built in as few as 467 hours, or in as many as 933 hours. The exact timeline mostly depends on how complicated your specific app is. As a general rule, it will take longer if you require highly custom designs, niche features, complex logic, or non-standard release platforms. For example, some previous home construction apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your home construction application

A home construction app can grow by providing value for the different stakeholders in the real estate business. This requires a business model that allows users to seamlessly find and communicate with other users, such as homebuyers, sellers, realtors, inspectors, and contractors. A construction app should also offer an attractive compensation model for home contractors that is more efficient than traditional commission-based models.

Risks and challenges of building a home construction application

A home construction app faces legal and reputational risks related to user safety, the handling of sensitive personal information, and violations of building code laws. When designing your app, it is important to consider how you will minimize liability for yourself and your users by making your platform safe for everyone and following all applicable building codes.
