Xactimate bases their prices off what contractors are paid by the insurance companies. Insurance companies pay based on what Xactimate says the price is. Contractor is told he either goes with Xactimate rates or he is blacklisted. The price for a 200max dehu in Atlanta has been stuck at $101.25 for 7 years! Each uses each other as an excuse for not changing the rate. So which came first the chicken or the egg?
