How much does a house cost per sq ft?

Asked by Michael F. Brown, Las Vegas, NV Sun Jun 2, 2013

Is it something like 250 dollars a sq ft for a standard house and 350 dollars a sq ft for luxury houses

Help the community by answering this question:


There is no standard cost per sq ft. It depends on the area, size, year and comparable homes sold within the last 6 months in the area. The first step to buying a home is getting pre-qualified with a lender and figuring out your price range once you know that I can help you find the perfect home for your needs.

There is no standard cost per sq. ft. It depends on the location and the construction of the house. It certainly would cost a lot less to build a house in Indiana than it would cost to build the exact same house in Honolulu.

I think the median home is more like $117 a sq ft. Most escrow companies can give current info.

At $250 you are looking at country club or guard gated communities or even custom homes.

Hi Michael- Answers below are good and as they state price per sqft varies widely from zip code to zip code in our area. 250-350 a sqft would be high in my opinion for a home under the 500k mark but can vary. Most of what you would see in are valley would be under those numbers. If you have a specific area in mind I can give you accurate price per sq ft over the last year and show you how it has been trending.

Price per foot is not always accurate in our market. We are seeing prices mid-60's and up. All depends on location and amenities. What is it you are looking for? Are you a cash buyer, or will you need financing? Give me a call, I would be honored to answer any questions that you may have. I can be reached anytime at (702) 370-9833.

What is your question exactly? Price per SF is not an accurate way to determine a home's cost or value, or affordability. If you think about it, it's all about math. Cost per SF is primarily used for new construction. It's not accurate for resale homes since it doesn't take into account upgrades, location, condition of the property, etc. If you're trying to figure out what you can afford, you need to talk to a lender who can review all of your financial info, and will give you a total $$ figure on what you can afford, based on different loan options available to you.

Here's an excellent explanation on Price per SF:
