It really depends of what amenities you want, the quality of the builder and if the lot is included. If you are fine with stock cabinets, laminate counter tops vinyl and carpet flooring and you are fine with going with the cheapest builder, without the lot included you are looking at around $80-$85 a sqft. The builder that I have found does the best quality work at the best price is around $95-$100 a sqft without the lot. They also include in there pricing some upgrades over the cheapest builders as far as flooring, cabinets and the quality of construction. I have seen other builders that put out the same quality as the one I use that come in at 120-130 a sqft or more.

Anoka doesn't have a whole lot of data since there aren't too many lots available. It would probably run you about $170 per square foot including the lot, looking back over the last 6 months. Ramsey has some lots available.

100$ is a good number,buying a house can be as low as 50 on the lower end then it of course goes up the newer and fancier you go. 70$ should get you a nice home

alot depends on type of house, but you dont figure in the land on construction,what
if it was a million dollar lot, construction stays the same regardless the cost of a lot

New construction is usually a bit more than gently used existing homes for the same upgrades - but new is NEW! Like the other responses - it depends! You can go to my website - http://www.makeminnesotahome.com and there are a number of search tools that will help you answer most if not all of your questions about purchasing a home. If you need help navigating the site, register and I'll get back to you shortly thereafter. Glad you asked!

Hey Dan!

If you want I have pasted a reference in the web link where you can tinker around with states in Anoka for new construction. There is not a ton of new construction sales volume available to really get good data. It should be higher than $100/sq.ft though. Even by Kirk's own omission the lot is typically not included. For someone buying a home I do add in that price, because if you are trying to compare prices to previously owned construction it makes the numbers smoother in my mind. Just my opinion there are a lot of ways to look at it differently.

Not sure why you asked this question in the first place, but I can tell you it is a ton cheaper to go previous construction. Find something "newer" built 2002+ that is a foreclosure and you get the best deals. If you feel like talking more about it, or would like some representation (it won't cost you anything to work with me anyways) just contact me directly through Trulia.

Happy Housing Hunting!

Right around $100 per square foot for a decent home, Upgrades of course are over and above that. So your taste will determine final price.
