The most accurate solution for estimating the cost to build your dream home...

HomePlans has partnered with StartBuild to offer the industry's most accurate Cost to Build Estimator. This revolutionary estimation service takes the process to the next level. By utilizing actual material bid costs StartBuild has received, we are able to produce highly accurate estimates beyond anything else found on the market.

Many customers we've spoken to have complained about the inaccuracies of other services. Through our research we found that the reason for the discrepancies was due to two major factors.

First, the material cost and labor data was not updated often enough. To solve this, we maintain real-time updates. Since StartBuild is continuously building homes, they receive new material prices continuously which are then immediately fed into the Cost to Build Estimator.

Second, we found that the other estimators did not take into account the dramatic difference in price that customer's choices make. For instance, high-end windows, granite counter tops, exotic hardwood floors, specialty roofing materials can cost 3-5 times as much as lower end materials.

Our estimator enables you to anticipate and control those costs, before you ever break ground. What makes our Cost to Build Estimator the best on the market?

The baseline estimate is based on the specific plan you select
