In this final section of “understanding price and cost per square foot” we will examine the effects of Finish-Out Selections on the ultimate cost to build a custom home.
In the prior discussions on the topic, we covered plan design and geometry, development costs and the effect of outdoor living areas in the new home budget. So, the question of “how much per square foot can you build a 4000 square foot home for” is essentially unanswerable without more information. Some of that information will come from you, the home buyer. Specifically, what features you want in your home.
As I mentioned previously, “How much per square foot?” is greatly determined by the location of the new custom home, the size, the design and finish out of the outdoor living area, as well as the overall finish out selections outlined here. Hopefully, this series has demonstrated that if someone is prepared to quote a price per square foot of a new custom home out of thin air, (not seeing the site, building or finish out) they are making assumptions in these areas that may not be valid for the subject project.
