Price Per Square Foot Dilemma – Why Traditional Estimates Don’t Work for Custom Homes

The number one question clients ask homebuilders is how much will my house cost? As consumers, we are used to buying products with a fixed and expected price. For example, we can browse online sites and know exactly how much a new phone, pair of shoes or car will cost.

When it comes to designing a home, determining the price is difficult. In the case of a phone, pair of shoes or car, you know exactly what the product looks like and the features it includes. A custom home is a compilation of items that come together to make your dream a reality.

To begin understanding custom home prices, you must look at the project as a package of all items that go into the processes and finishes of your house. A few factors that influence your overall cost are:

• Kitchen grade and finishes

• Number of windows and materials

• Types of flooring

• Interior trim

• Roofing materials

• Scheduling changes due to weather, homeowner changes and sub availability

This is just the beginning! There are hundreds of additional line items that will impact your final product.

So, what does this mean?

If you can identify each item that will go into your home (from toilets to doorknobs and everything in between), then we can provide you project cost. Otherwise, your spending plan will be a work in progress.

While the task seems daunting, our team of experts are here to help guide you through the process. We will discuss how certain selections will impact your overall cost prior to execution. Additionally, our project coordinators will help guide you through each phase and advise you about economical decisions.
