What is the cost per square foot?
The most common question a potential client asks a homebuilder is how much does it cost to build per square foot. There are builders out there who will build a home for a very low cost per square foot but the home will cost more per day to operate than another home built at a higher cost per square foot.

When looking to build a home, you must look at all of the factors that go into a home and not just dollars per square foot. Yes, it is important to get as much square foot as you can afford but ignoring the operating costs will leave you in a worse financial situation than you planned.

Let's look at some (make believe) numbers. If you were to build a 2000 square foot home for $85 per square foot your contract price would be $170,000. The same house at $100 per square foot would be $200,000 – a $30,000 difference. Let's say that the utility bills (electric/gas/water/sewer) were an average of $120 less in the more expensive home, this home would have a savings of $43,200 over 30 years.

Numbers aside, the comfort level, durability, improved air quality all would be better in the more expensive home. Over time these are really the most important questions to answer.
