Many people searching for their dream home are coming to the conclusion that to have exactly what they need and want, they may have to build it themselves. Others may have purchased or inherited property without preexisting structures and want to make that their new homestead. Among the first questions prospective homeowners ask themselves is, how much will it cost to build a house? The answer is often more complicated than they initially believe, in part because of all that goes into home-building and the different choices they can make along the way.

However, homeowners report the average cost to build a new house comes in at $304,268, which would put a 2,000 square foot home costing about $150 per square foot. This will obviously vary greatly with all the costly variables involved, so the cost could range between$177,402 and $462,038………………………………………………

Modular Homes

Another option is the construction of a modular home. These have come a long way in recent years, offering homeowners much potential for customization and an enormous variety of floor plans and optional features.

Many people choose modular homes because they generally cost 10 percent to 20 percent less in terms of overall cost than custom builds. Much of this comes from reduced labor requirements and negotiated prices the manufacture receives from their suppliers and business partners. This is also why additional customization can be expensive.

  1. I was surprised when you said that modular houses are available in a wide range of styles, including luxury homes. My husband and I want to spend some time evaluating our housing options this year since we like the idea of moving from our current apartment. Thanks for sharing this article and helping me realize that a modular home could give us what we’re looking for at a reasonable price.
