How much would it cost to rewire our house that was built before 1900 and its approx 1480 sq feet of living area?

It's impossible for anyone to say that without actually being at your house and going through everything. And at best all they will be able to do is give you an estimate before they start.

Call three electrical companies and have them come out and quote the job. This is the best way. Make sure they know you are asking for multiple quotes.

Add 50% if the homeowner wants to talk to the workers all day because he has nothing else better to do.
