Estimating-RepairsFor this edition of Third Degree Thursday, Matt goes into detail about the quick ‘n’ dirty formula he uses to estimate the cost of repairs. With this formula, you are able to quickly create an offer, ensuring that you can secure a property with a contract without any delay.

He also explains how to negotiate the purchase price in the event that you initially underestimated it.
