Anyone thinking of building a new custom home always wants to know... what is the cost to build a new house?
That is a fair question.
But... did you know the most dangerous question you can possibly ask is...
"What is the cost per square foot to build a house?"
On the surface this may seem like a fairly straightforward question. However, in practice it’s anything but. There are many factors that go into how a home builder calculates this cost per square foot.
If this number is not calculated accurately it is easy to accidentally create an inaccurate budget. This is where you hear nightmare stories of home building stories where home owners run out of money, end up significantly over budget, or even go broke.
