I work with several builders of high quality homes in the $100 to $200 per sq ft range plus the lot, depending on the amenities. Most existing home in the Cape are selling for well below the cost of new construction. There is a mini boom of new construction going on here now, so it is not unusual to see new homes built to the buyers specs going up, especially in the Southwest Cape.
If your interested I can set you up with a quality builder to get what you want. There are also plenty of waterfront lots with Gulf access still available at great prices. We could help you find that perfect location to build your dream house.

You should be clear on what you want for amenities that you want in the home and get several quotes. It's like anything, if you don't trust the person building your home it will be a very difficult experience. Ask questions and demand answers. Good luck!
Costs in Florida will definitely be less per sq. ft but as you know there is nothing.... NOTHING that beats building a new construction home, custom the way you want it. All you need to do is find the right lot and local sales to support the cost and you can actually save money if you find the right builder which we easily do up north. Good luck!
It doesn't matter where you are building the answer is the same, what exactly do you want in that square foot area.
One person might want marble floors while another cermac floor or wood each one would change the cost per square foot. Different roof types will also change this cost; as you can see there are many variables that would affect the cost per square foot.
My suggestion is to visit the "Parade of Homes" in your area where you will get an introduction to many builders in the same aarea. Check what is standard with each builder and please be sure to look up at the roof.
Quality in your home lasts a long time so don't give it up to lower the cost, find another way.
Best of luck to you.
