Renovation Calculator – Calculate the cost of house renovation

To ensure that a property does not lose value, the various building components, such as the kitchen, the bathroom or the roof, must be regularly maintained and renovated. In order to tackle renovations correctly and thus act proactively instead of reactively, it is important to know about the individual service life of the individual components. Hasty house renovations can quickly lead to above-average renovation costs and a financial bottleneck. Costs may also arise for property buyers if the condition of the house is not disclosed.

Houzy's renovation calculator helps to analyze the individual condition of the building parts in a playful and easy way and thus to calculate the corresponding renovation costs and timing of your property. The house or the apartment can be digitally recorded on the basis of few details and the condition can be calculated free of charge with a basic or more detailed "pro" version. The result can be seen in the form of a cost overview and interactive life table on the Houzy platform. The graphic shows you the optimal renovation timing per component as well as a rough cost estimate.

So you can approach renovations logically with a few clicks and save on costs, plan the budget correctly and increase the house value - free, without obligation and saves time.

Houzy's Renovation Calculator – cost-effective renovations

From a structural point of view, it makes sense to renovate individual components together, although their renovation is due at different times. In addition to the estimated renovation costs and the calculated dates, the smart renovation planner shows you which components you should approach together in order to refurbish as cost-effectively as possible. As an example, you should also consider your kitchen when renovating the bathroom. The refurbishment planner recommends the appropriate stages and periods for a wise renovation of the components.

Planning renovations - that is why this is important

As a property owner, you not only assume the role of the resident, but also that of the investor, because: Real estate is a long-term investment that can last from 50 to 100 years. The overall life of the property consists of the various components and their respective shorter and longer life cycles. It is therefore important that you, as the owner, plan ahead of time the costs of maintaining and renewing the components.

FAQs – Answers on Houzy

How accurate is the result of the online renovation calculator?

FAQ arrow

The result of the renovation calculator is based on an analysis model by QualiCasa AG - the Swiss expert in building analyses for over 15 years. By definition, a model does not reflect reality exactly. It is intended to provide a point of reference for taking a closer look where necessary. In order to make an exact analysis of the building components and the corresponding renovation needs, you still need a specialist on site. You can also find a broad regional network of experts on Houzy.

What data is the renovation calculator based on?

FAQ arrow

This is made possible by the cooperation with the company QualiCasa AG. This company prepares comprehensive analyses for institutional real estate investors and forecasts, among other things, the renovation dates and costs of the various building components. A life cycle model is used which is based on empirical data and has been certified by the University of St. Gallen (HSG). Large real estate investors use it to manage the maintenance of thousands of Swiss properties.

What information does Houzy need for the renovation calculator?

FAQ arrow

Important for the evaluation of the renovation calculator are the basic details such as address, year of construction and house type. Information on the materials of the various components (e.g. the roof or the façade) as well as renovations already carried out make the renovation calculator much more accurate. In the "Pro version", additional information on the standard of construction and condition can be entered. Rooms and building components can also be entered several times and more specifically, which leads to an even more precise result. In short: the more information you can provide, the better.

Is my data secure?

FAQ arrow

Data protection and security are our top priority. That's why we leave nothing to chance. To ensure the protection of your personal data and secure data transmission, we work with the latest security technologies. Your data is stored in encrypted form in a computer centre that is certified with all current industry standards. Data is therefore only passed on to third parties if you request service offers via Houzy that require this. An example of this is when you actively contact one of our broker partners. You can find further information in our T&Cs under "Our privacy policy".

Why is the renovation calculator free of charge?

FAQ arrow

Houzy is a young company and finances itself by brokering third-party services as well as through advertising partnerships with national and regional partners (however, you as a user always decide yourself when you want to share what and with whom and thus always retain data sovereignty). The use of our online renovation calculator and our platform is therefore permanently free of charge for you. If required, our experts will be happy to advise you personally in a second step. Suitable, regional craftsmen can also be contacted through us without obligation. If an order is placed, payment is handled directly with the craftsman.
