Q: What is your cost Per Square Foot?
A: All houses differ in SF cost depending on what items a customer wants in their home and how many corners and roof lines a plan has. One stories are generally are more than two story. Unfinished basements, bonus room or finished basements & bonus rooms make a difference. Also counting the SF in the garage or not makes a difference.
Houses can range from 125.00 psf to over 200.00 psf depending on the info listed above. However the short answer is most homes with a 2 car garage, Cer Tile, Granite usually build for around 140.00 PSF. Specialty Custom Homes usually start about 140.00 and go up from there depending on the efficiency of the plans and features.

Q: How do I get started?
A: Call me first and I can set everything up or you can do the following:
1. Learn your realistic budget. Visit your bank or mine to get a projection of what you should spend on a home according to your income and expenses. Even if you have the ability to pay cash for your home, you still may want to visit with a bank. With rates as low as they are now, it could make just as much since to finance your home and invest the cash you have on hand for retirement according to some.
2. There are many loan programs that offer different vehicles but the standard is to have from 5% to 20% of the total amount that you plan to spend on lot and house as a down payment. Also plan to have some money for closing costs such as 2-3%. There are other plans available but this is considered to be the standard for some banks
3. Pick your land and plan based on the average SF cost you want to spend or as listed above. Total up the cost of both and compare that to the numbers that the bank has projected you to spend.
