Calling up your local Charlotte, NC home builder to get a quick quote is not as simple as it seems. Pricing a custom-built new home requires more than just knowing the basic cost per-square-footage, it is much more complex than that.
Why Square Foot Pricing Doesn’t Work
Some new home manufactures will quote you a price based on square-footage. But, these quotes are for mass produced homes, with very limited variations to plans, model styles or options. The prices don’t include necessary features and your “must-have” amenities and extras.
Because your custom-built home should be the home of your dreams, the customizations you choose drive the total costs of your Queen City home. Where you choose to build your home matters too. It will be much less expensive to build a simple home near North Carolina State University than a luxury home in Eastover.
