LONDON, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- 'Home Made' brings clarity, ease and expertise to property renovation projects -
Toocube Ltd, a mobile applications development company, has launched a new application that is set to transform the process of calculating property renovations. Designed to assist anyone planning on renovating a property, the free app, 'Home Made' provides the user with a budget of renovation costs which are calculated and generated in seconds.
Home Made enables anyone to start their renovation planning better-informed and prepared in three fast, self-explanatory steps. Users simply type in the details of the property they want to renovate, then choose the works required from a full list which includes items from painting and decorating and wall finishes, a kitchen or bathroom renovation to a basement dig or loft conversion. The clever application then calculates a complete overview of the cost of the project, including renovation costs overall and per sq ft / sq m, financing costs and stamp duty fees for buyers. For those who are looking at buy to let investments, or to refurbish and sell on, it also provides useful financial information including anticipated gross rental income per week and month, and the net end value of the project.
The application also allows users to amend the data once calculated. For example, if the renovation costs come out higher than your available budget, users can go into certain elements, such as the kitchen refurbishments, to amend the underlying figures - the overall costs are then automatically calculated once the amendments are saved. The application allows users to store up to ten projects, as well as download or email their project summary.
Julian Bryson, Director of Toocube, comments: "Having been involved with property renovation for some time with unmodernised.com, we saw that there was a gap in the market for a useful tool that assists with property renovation calculations. Most people use excel spreadsheets or plain old pen and paper, which is not ideal and can be cumbersome. This application is designed to make the whole process of calculating renovations much easier - simplifying and speeding up the process when people need it most - on the move. The feedback from our Beta testers has been extremely positive, so we're sure that this is set to become a widely used tool suitable for anyone who is keen to know how much the property work they want to carry out might cost."
The costs calculated on Home Made are based upon data supplied by its network of property industry experts as well as verified against data from the Office of National Statistics, JIB (Joint Industry Board), nomis and RICS, amongst other industry resources.
