The most frequently asked question we receive is… “How much do you cost per square foot to build”?
Many home builders often put their “best foot forward” when advertising square foot cost. The important thing for potential home buyers is to identify what the advertised pricing includes.
The following are just a few of the many questions future homebuyers should consider when discussing square footage cost with home builders:
- What type of foundation is included?
- For example a slab, crawlspace, or basement and what material is used for these types of foundations.
- Is the grading included?
- Some builders only include grading for approximately a 25’ perimeter around the house in order to meet drainage requirements.
- Is seeding and landscaping included?
- Are driveways and sidewalks included?
- Are well and septic included?
- Are covered porches, decks and garages included?
- What type of exterior finishes are standard?
- Brick, vinyl, hardi board, stone, stucco, etc.?
- What type of flooring is included?
- Are the appliances included?
- Are cabinet’s plywood or particle board?
- Are toilet accessories included?
- What finish is standard for plumbing fixtures, door hardware, and lighting?
