California DRE Cost Manual
The California Department of Real Estate has created an Operating Cost Manual as a guideline for developers in establishing budgets for new associations. This manual contains cost information for the most frequently occuring common areas and is a useful tool in evaluating costs of selected common area components.
While that tool is useful for general information, it is clearly not sufficient for any reasonably complex reserve study. At Facilities Advisors, Inc., our master cost database contains hundreds of components and current cost information on each component.
Contact Facilities Advisors, Inc. at (877) 304-6700 for your reserve study needs. California is our home market, and we have been preparing reserve studies here since 1982, long before most of our competitors even realized this industry existed.
