Advanced Models and Options Management for Home Builders
Specitup lets home builders set new home selling prices that maximize profit, while enabling automated management and pricing of features. Our solution helps home builders save time and make more money by giving our partners the ability to quickly create, customize and maintain home models and options. Sales and marketing need to drive everything – if you cannot sell it, there is no need to 3D model or estimate it. Construction, drafting, purchasing, and estimating should not be unnecessarily burdened by the introduction of new plans.
“Using Specitup has saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
— Dan Kent, Kent Homes
