Curious what others think it should cost to paint the interior of a house? I have a 2500 square foot 4 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home. I received one estimate of $9,700 and that includes fixing walls that have cracks from settling.

I would be hard pressed to think $9700 was a fair price for painting an interior. Does that quote include ceilings? Are you a heavy smoker requiring all surfaces to be treated with Kilz first? Have the walls been painted previously - and there are problems with that paint job?

There is a lot of information missing from your post that would greatly influence a final price.
Opportunity has a shelf life.
