Jennifer Duaine’s answer
97814 is in Baker, Oregon. And, if I was in Baker, Oregon, I would be happy to entertain what looks to be the average price per square foot in this zip code as it can sometimes be relatively easy to ascertain an average for a particular zip code.

Keep in mind an average will lump in a variety of parameters, therefore, always best as suggested previously to give a little bit more criteria. However, an average is cerainly available of all homes sold, say for example in the last year, however that information is relatively useless unless all homes are comparable, which it remains to be seen since I don't know that zip code.

You have to use comparable, specific data for an accurate analysis. Sounds like a bulder question? I would recommend Data Quick or your local title company since much new construction isn't even in the MLS, (the source an average realtor uses)-where asking a realtor not equipped for this facet would be useless since they can not claim to know what isn't available to them regarding new construction.

Good luck!

All the best,

being in the area- i will tell you 1st hand- the realtors (very limited in numbers) have the prices jacked WAY UP!!!!! they have a corner on the market. look at tax roll records at http://www.bakercounty.org then add 30% on top- thats where they start at for prices.
2nd- stay AWAY from Neilson realty- and SUNFIRE realty- both have no values or interest for the buyer- just wanting to make their buck (commisison) and walk away. we moved into the area 2 years ago- and expereinced this 1st hand.
Good luck!!

What's the price of a new car?
Same kind of answer.

Price per square foot will vary depending on the size of the property and the upgrades selected. Builder upgrades are very expensive and can easily add tens of thousands of dollars to the price of a home.

Your best bet is to have your realtor pull comps for similar existing construction to get an idea of where the value is. Once you move in the home is no longer new... just like a car so you will want to know and understand the premium you may be paying for a new build home. That is what I do for my clients.

Hope this helps.
