Depending on how luxury you want your house to be it can vary from $140/SF to $200/SF (Of course it could go way higher the more you want to put into it).
Below is one my listings that I helped my client to find a builder to build it for him.
I have a civil engineering background so please let me know if I can help you in anyway.

if you are still looking for a property please let me know if I can help. Banks normally will not speak directly to you. You would need to wait for the property to come out for sale. And some times that can take a long time. Some times years.

Hello, I have come to realize that rent has become more expensive than buying. Have you considered looking for an apartment to buy? I'm not sure if you are aware, but Wells Fargo is offering a program where they provide you with 20% down payment. If you are pre-approved you may qualify for this incentive. If you decide to go this route give me a call or provide me with your email address and I'll forward you the information. The program is called Neighborhood Lift. As previously stated, it provides you with $25,000 in addition to your preapproval amount and you can use it as a down payment, closing cost, renovation loan, however you see fits. Call me if you want to know more about it.
I look forward hearing from you,
Keller Williams Realty
Not only can I help you get a great mortgage loan, we also have the technology to ensure you can qualify with the healthiest credit file possible. Did you know your credit file may contain errors or other issues that are holding down your credit score? Instead of simply qualifying based on your current credit score, we’ll use our credit proofreading software to give your credit file a checkup and ensure your credit score is as strong as it can be.
Our technology can analyze how you use your credit cards and suggest slight changes that will strengthen your credit score. We can even detect and remove any errors in your credit file that have been working against your credit score. Our easy to follow, step by step plans can improve your credit health in as fast as 72 hours. Since healthier credit profiles often result in higher credit scores - we may be able to help you qualify for better rates and lower down payments.

Hi there... I live in Hampton Terrace just off of Curry Ford Road... it's a small community with only 45 apartments. The apartments are a great size for the price and have nice patios or decks, and a dining room! (750 square feet for less than $1.00 per foot). The community also has a pool, video surveillance, very close to shopping, downtown and transportation. Call our office manager Lynn at 407-898-0244, right now I believe there are two units available. Good luck!... more

If your house was not on the market, then there should not have been "an asking price". So what you are actually saying is that you agreed to sell your home, and agreed on an asking price before even talking about commissions....bad strategy.
Clearly you have not signed anything with the agent regarding paying him/her a commission. Therefore nothing stops you from saying that since that was not part of the contract, he must collect from the buyer.
On the other side, the agent should not have been showing your home until you had agreed on the commission split if he/she got you a contract. So both sides are wrong.
You also mentioned being concern that if you raise the price then the deal could be killed....but you had no interest on selling the house (you were not listed for sale to start with)...so now you have a new interest to protect.
The situation must be solved by negotiation between all 3 parties. It is not uncommon on for sale by owners for the buyer to pay one half of the agents commission, then the seller pays the other half. After all, someone will have to handle all your paperwork and forms and tell you the steps to follow to have a closing....so unless you are hiring a lawyer to handle your side of the deal, you are still better off offering compensation to the agent, who will be acting as a transaction broker between the two parties.

Mirtha - don't prejudge your credit! The rule of thumb for qualification purposes is a 640 but I can do FHA manual underwrites down to a 600. If you are buying your first home there are a lot of options. I personally would recommend new construction as all of the home builders are offering incentives to cover closing costs for using their lender. Depending on your overall household income you could look at purchasing a home that will qualify (this is a geographically restricted program) for 100% USDA financing, so essentially you could walk into the home with little to no money out of pocket. Also if you or your husband is a Veteran you could qualify for a VA loan which also offers 100% financing. Lastly, based on your income and other criteria you could qualify for the Florida Bond Program, which provides for down payment assistance for first time home buyers. Coupling these options with the builder incentives creates a winning combination every time. Lennar, MI, Taylor Morrison, Ryan Homes and DR Horton are offering some fantastic communities peppered throughout central florida that offer the USDA option and Florida Bond program. If you are interested in learning more about these communities or financing options, please do not hesitate to reach out to me and I will be more than happy to help!

If you are planning to rent your current home, the general rule of thumb is, you will need to have an executed 12 month lease on the property and verification that the security deposit check has cleared your account. At that point the mortgage payement for your current primary residence can be offset by the amount of rental income that you will be earning. However, this is all subject to underwriter discretion and investor guidelines. If your last names are the same it will more than likely set off a red flag to the underwriter. So you may want to consider leasing your home to a 3rd party (non-related). As long as you disclose that you are planning to turn your current home into an investment property and you have lived in the home for at least one year prior to changing its occupancy status you should be fine and not have to worry about committing occupancy fraud. I work with clients all of the time who perform the same type of scenario. If I can be of any assistance please do not hesitate to reach out to me and I will be more than happy to help!!
