    Can someone tell me how difficult this would be to replicate? I only need it for 1 state

    Also, how do i figure out what the algorithm is for outputting variables, thanks.

    Very Simple, assuming you know the rates for each state.

    You really just capture the input, run it through an equation and display the output.

    Do you need this to be on a website? If not, why not just build it in VB or VS?

    Basic equations are pretty simple in just about any programming language. There are some variances to syntax, but for the most part, it's incredibly similar. It'd be super easy to capture the value of each block with jQuery and output the answer without even leaving the page using the .val() method and using 'return false' on a .submit() method for the form.
    //Something like
    var input1 = $('.input1').val();
    var input2 = $('.input2').val();
      $('.output').val(input1 + input2);
        return false;

    Even though it's an old thread, I felt like something needed to be added.

    To answer the second question can't. The calculator itself is built using (looks like it's, which means the calculation of the buyer's / seller's costs and other fees are all stored and calculated on the server side, likely with some combination of a database and server-side arithmetic. So unless you know the various fees associated with your state and how they're calculated, you're not going to replicate this calculator.

    The trite version of what I just said is, "ask a real estate professional". They'd be the ones with the formula(e) that you'd need. If you have those formulas, it's just basic arithmetic and pretty much any server-side programming language should be able to handle it (or even Javascript in a pinch, although I wouldn't recommend it).

    Yup, that's an easy one... Simple math,but I suspect the variable are in a DB, just for the sake of making updates easier.

    I did one for a client a few months ago that has 4 selector inputs and 12 user updateable fields ... 4-5 various ascending values... The user provided an excel spreadsheet with all these in it... I will tell you, excel formulas do not translate out to anything especially the ones ( I forget the term used for them) but they had functions in excel built to handle them.

    The output is all simple math once you calculate all the values in functions.

    I created a simple cost/profit calculator in asp one day in about 10 minutes... Moving to PHP, I decided to convert this simple calculator over... I spent about 2 hours ... Still working on it.
