Depending on the price of your entire project.. a good builder will usually come in between $60 to $80 per square foot.. If you want a really amazing finishout that is "show room" ready... that will range you between $80 and $150 per square foot.
Before you buy the land... I would really want to meet with you and get a solid idea of what you are looking for, and then go visit some builders, walk their model homes, go over floor plans, etc..
You will want to get your financing done before you buy the land... it will make the process a bunch easier, and will also help me to get you a much better deal on the land as well... trust me!
There is a ton to go over, and a lot of details I would like to go over with you, and then we can start looking at some builders and see who wins the battle of "Price for nice" ;)
Give me a call when you have about 10 min to talk on the phone.. and have a pen and paper handy...

As an estimate, if the lot is leveled, then the builders charge $60-$65 per square foot - this price usually includes everything from setting the foundation to finer details.
A few months ago, I arranged for a client custom home builders who charged $60 sq/ft for a high end home.
Feel free to give me a call any time, if you have any further questions.

That is a bit of a loaded question. The answer is that it depends on many factors like location, materials to be used, degree of finish out, etc.
For example, the ground in the south of town has a lot of sand, not much rock, and is relatively flat. It's much less expensive to build your foundation in the south than it would be in the north. North of town has a lot of rock and topography. The same exact floor plan in the north might cost you $30 or $40 more per square foot not to mention the difference in land costs.
Materials chosen can be vastly different as well. If you want a home with fiber cement siding, it will cost you a lot less than if you want hand cut stone. A metal roof vs. shingle roof. Vinyl flooring vs wood, etc.
I recommend that you enlist the assistance of a good Realtor, Architect, and Lender before making any decisions.
