How much does it cost to make an app?


Perhaps you’ve recently enquired about getting your own custom app developed or just wondered out of curiosity how much it costs to make an app. If you’ve ever looked into the cost, it’s likely that you’ve received several different responses. Figures can be between a few thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars. It can be difficult to answer “how much does it cost to make an app?” as it depends on the type of mobile app you want to create.

Today, organizations are increasingly opting to develop their own custom app in order to better connect with their customers and provide an additional platform that generates additional customers, traffic and revenue.

It’s hardly surprising that in order to develop an enterprise app, prices can range anywhere between $50,000 to $300,000.

As noted, the cost to build an app varies; part of that variance comes down to which platform you’re looking to build the app for (Apple or Android). The cost differs based on the devices for which you are going to build the app for and generally speaking, they are not cross compatible with one another. The other big (and obvious) factor is core functionality. From our research, the figure can be anywhere between $50,000 to $300,000. With an app that requires core functionality that integrates to a database to extract certain information and have search functionality etc, the cost would likely be in the middle to high end of that scale. Such functionality is vital if you’re thinking about developing a custom real estate app for your agency – Without it, customers would not be able to view your listings and other important information.

Aside from cost, developing a mobile app is no easy task as there are important design and functionality considerations to take into account. Moreover, even if an app has been developed, there is also a careful submission process that must be followed when submitting to the app stores. Getting it wrong can mean that your app may not be found by users or worse yet, be rejected from the app stores. RE Apps handles the complete design, development, and submission of your real estate agency’s custom app for a fraction of the traditional cost, with no upfront development cost, just one low monthly fee while providing ongoing support.
