What is our square foot price? We can tell you that in this current market, custom homes are averaging anywhere from $245-$275 per heated square foot and can occasionally be $300+ a square foot. This general price is just for the custom home and does not include the price for land.
Our square foot price is a question we get asked almost daily, and I personally don’t think that there is a fair answer. There is a ton of information needed to give an accurate price.
I love trucks so that’s the example I am going to use. What package do you want on it? XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited? We can take the same approach with a home: do you want to add hardie siding, some stone on the foundation, higher efficiency Heat/Air Unit, real hardwood floors, elegant quartz tops with high end cabinets? It’s based on what you are wanting and what works with your unique budget.
There are some items that will be decided by your land. We can do a slab foundation for less than we can do a basement. But an unfinished basement will drive up your square foot price, because instead of spending 25k on a foundation you are spending 75k on a basement. If you decide to finish the basement, it is more money up front but it will lower the overall square foot price. Some of the items we look at when looking at your land are: do we have to clear the land? Is the drive way 30 or 200 feet? How long is the water line running? How is the soil? Can we do a traditional septic or is it on city sewer? All of this things will affect your per square foot price.
It isn’t fair for us to give you a square foot price blindly and give you an unrealistic price on your biggest investment without knowing what you want or any detail of your property. Building your home should be a fun and enjoyable experience with realistic expectations.
