Cost per Square Foot

How Much Does It Cost per Square Foot to Build?

In our industry today the most commonly asked question by prospective clients is, “How much per square foot does it cost to build a home?” Many builders advertise and promote their companies by publishing a cost per square foot price, with each company trying to outdo the next with lower figures. Lower prices certainly don't  mean better value. In the past, many professional quality home builders incorporated quality and value oriented products in their homes to provide sustainability and customer value based on many factors like product warranties, reputation, and longevity. Nowadays many of those considerations by builders are being replaced by the objective of lowering initial costs while minimizing considerations of long-term value and sustainability. Obviously, the first question is what constitutes a square foot price.......

Your home can vary in price by 40% to 50% based on these considerations above.
