Buying a house, need advice for electrical

Hello! I am buying ym first house, and just finshed the inspection last night. Everything was in pretty good shape, but my concern here today is for the electrical. I am making an offer today, and want to explain my offer, so I was wondering how much things would be approx.
The house needs GFCi's in the kitchen, bathrooms, outdoors, and garage. In addition, the 3 bedrooms, lightswitches are not connected to the ceiling fan/lights. Roughly what would this cost per gfci? Ceiling fan wiring?
There are 2 bathrooms, kitchen, garage, and 2 outlest outside. Abotu how logn should this take?
Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
This is sometihng thats a must for me, becasue I just got electricuted, and I am certain the GFCI saved my life!

If you have been electrocuted then you are dead
So I think you were shocked

Prices vary widely by area & depends upon the work involved & specific house
This site is geared towards DIY, not cost estimates
GFCI's can be installed just like a normal outlet
Your best bet is to get several local estimates based on an electrician viewing the actual work that needs to be completed
Thank you
