Service-based website (no eCommerce) that is building off of a pre existing website as well.
This is a bit of a complex question to answer, but assuming is a typical service based business website where you are using primarily for SEO, Marketing, and informational purposes - the cost is or should be very relatively low. Depending on the type of build you prefer, whether you hire a developer who knows SEO to build your website natively friendly with SEO or not will affect your final price. Not every designer is a good developer or good SEO person. But I would say, even with SEO for a basic informational website with good SEO structure should be no more than $3,000 usd... custom designing and complex animations or backend data entry would of course drive the cost up. We did some service informational sites in the past that ended up racking the clients' total to $30k. This isn't common but they were a big client with complex systems on the backend while the front end was informational only for guests.
You really need to do thorough research when deciding on your website rebuild. There's no real answer. It really just depends on your budget. I would ensure the site is user friendly first. Second, I'd hire an SEO content specialist to follow SEO best practices. And, lastly, I'd incorporate a blog to ensure you're ranking high on SEO in due time. Considering all of this, shop around with a budget of 5k and find your best bang for your buck! You got this!
Look the truth is that rebuilding a website has its costs. If it is in a simpler version, it will cost you about $15,000 to about $20,000, however if the rebuilding is a bit complicated with some additional features it will go above $ 20,000 or even $40,000. It all depends on what feature you are going to add in the rebuilding process.

Well, Im not sure what level of website you need, but I've built websites that are modern, responsive, have chat, contact forms, and even some basic ecommerce functionality with checkout and credit card payments for under a couple thousand. It all depends on the tools you use, the complexity you need, and how greedy the company is that you are asking to build it for you. BTW I agree that there are some websites that are over $30k...but honestly....if you are a business doing less than say 5 - 10M a year, you shouldn't be worried about spending that much unless you are some AirBNB, or Uber type of ecommerce business.
Lets setup a call and I am confident I can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars on a website. I have plenty of examples I can share as well.
You can re-build a few webpages and contact forms for free, except for website hosting costs. The design will cost extra, if your previous website design was custom made, and has special features.
Use a software like wordpress, and see if you can spend time to learn it. Else use a wordpress developer, and they can give quotes for the rebuild. They can cost $20-$100 per hour.
The website design requires thought, and if re-design is involved, it can cost a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
And do not spend money on some custom theme or plugins for Wordpress, start with the free ones, they are normally sufficient for such a project.
Give me a call if you need guidance on this.
I have launched many sites, and advised clients in Europe and US on this type of projects.
Basic SEO for wordpress is not expensive either, you can start for free and see how that works out.
