5Reliable Costing Affordable.
By D. Falor
Lets face it... Some costing data is very pricy. Was skeptical about replacing an unknown costing source for appraisal replacement costs. For about a month I developed costing for residential properties using both costing sources and the results were very similar. I feel this book isn't as categorized as some manuals, but the data is there. The index is handy. It comes with a cd, which may provide additional data and quarterly updates but I haven't tried the cd yet. The price is right to try and see if this product will work for you since some yearly data sources can cost more than 300.00. I've only used it to cost residential properties, some with barns or other large outbuilding. I've purchased this manual yearly for 3 years now...

4Very Good Guide
By Worker bee
This guide is very good. After using Marshall and Swift, I appreciate this book, and it gives you a free download of the software product. Much less expensive than the aforementioned M and S. It does have a minimal Single Family portion and a lot of commercial, but I did not find this to be problematic.
