/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. To download the free app, go to
toocube.com/homemade or visit the mobile website: homemade.toocube.com.
