Check out the Real Cost Finder tool from Houzz. The tool gives estimates of potential costs of remodeling projects. It is powered by data from a survey of more than 100,000 homeowners in over 50 metro areas. With the tool, homeowners can research real costs for completed projects gathered from homeowners in their area ranging from high-end to modest, for virtually every space inside and outside their home.

As you can see in the photo above (for a kitchen remodel in the Portland, Oregon area), the tool gives homeowners information like:

  • Average remodeling cost
  • Three price ranges for the remodeling project
  • Percentage of people in the area who hired a pro to complete the project
  • The average home value of the remodeled homes
  • Average household income for those completing the work

The default project of the Cost Finder tool is the kitchen. However, homeowners can see cost information for 20 different projects:
