Keep in mind that square footage costs do vary, and don't account for location and other considerations; therefore, it's really in your best interest to also review closed recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, and their final sales price...

They are asking for average price per square foot to BUILD once they already own the land. I don't believe they are asking what they can sell it for. Builders should have a range on price/sq foot understanding it will vary based upon finishes, materials, etc. if you were going to build a house on your own land, what would you expect as cost to you from builder per square foot. Again, I was told it was $175-$200/sq foot by two different sources. An agent and a builder

Good afternoon, below is a link to Zillow home value index that show an average sale price. This is based on Zillow's last 5 years' records of properties in the Dripping Springs neighborhoods.


I do not know how accurate Zillow provides but I hope it somehow answered your question.

Good luck,

That is just way too general. Homes are priced based on location, amenities and many other factors. In a specific subdivision you can get a general idea of what you are asking but even then larger homes will sell at lower price per square foot with all things being equal. It's just not a good way to determine your homes value.

You should really look at comps that have sold that are similar to your home in size, upgrades and location. That will let you know what the home will ultimately sell for and how long it will take. If you would like to discuss this I would be happy to send you some comps based on your situation. I can also send you some helpful information on how to sell your home for top dollar and avoid common seller mistakes that are made even in this hot real estate market we are currently in at the moment.

Hope this helps.

I've been told $175/sq foot for normal build and $200/sq foot to build a "green" home. This is assuming you already have the land. Does anyone else have any similar feedback?

I know there are many considerations, I am doing a build on your lot home, and just wanted to understand what an average per sq ft for a 3800 sq ft home. I guess the real factor for this is that we are not in a subdivision and our on 10 acres of land. I know this will be a factor, but just trying to make sure that what we build and what we are paying for that is within the "average DS per sq ft price". Comps out here are very hard to pull, not as much movement out here compared to a subdivision.
