Depends a lot on house configuration (i.e. central bath and kitchen locations or spread out throughout the house), and whether the plumbing runs mostly through exposed ceiling joists in basement or decent access crawlspace, or if they are concealed in floors and walls. Also, whether replacing all fixtures at the same time, and particularly whether you are replacing only water lines or sewer lines too. And of course, hot water or steam heating system line replacement add dramatically to the cost if doing that too. And if replacing sewer lines, only in house or those buried under slabs and from house to street sewer - or to septic system, and if replacing spetic system too or not.

Also, of course, if this is a multi-unit building where the wiring may partly run through neighbor's units, that complicates matters significantly at times, especially if you are doing this yourself rather than the whole building being done at one time.

Here are links to a few previous similar questions with ballpark responses for the basic case - usually hot and cold supply lines only, not drain/sewer or hot water/steam heating system.

And of course, WHY you are repiping comes into play - does the entire system need replacement or is the problem maybe just in a regulator or backflow preventer valve say, and if due to corrosion are you looking at plastic pipe replacement or PEX (yuck) instead, or are you talking copper pipe, which is generally quite a bit more expensive.
