Prices vary considerably based on several factors:
First of all: Do you own currently or will you at the time of construction own your lot, or are you considering a home built speculatively by a builder?
Secondly: Are there utilities at the lot? This can drive up the price of overall construction considerably
lastly: What type of foundation do you want/require?
what you have heard is quite high in my experience, but as I said there are several factors to consider. Please feel free to contact me for further help. I specialize in new construction and I know the Rockport area very well.

I have an extensive background building and selling land in the Rockport area. The simple answer to your question is that there is really NOT a simple answer to your question. Because, there are so many variables. The approximate prices quoted by Kristen and Sandy are both correct, though it gives you about a 50k variance, or close to 40%. Your best bet is to contact someone with my unique skillset to pinpoint your desires and address all the other costs associated with building in Rockport. You can check out my website for contact info at www.rockporttexashomesandland.com or www.buildinrockport.com My email address is email@example.com... more
You really need to talk to several builders/contractors to get a good idea. It will come down to the lot and the quality of the materials you want used. So you should speak to several builders and talk to them about what you want and see what options they will have for you. That is the only way you can really understand the costs involved and make an informed decision.
Hope this helps.

Not sure why you are asking all these questions HERE...... First most of what you are asking is
most likely available on the internet with a google search.... and then you want market information
not just about the value of a home, but also about property taxes etc. etc.
Here is what you need to do, if you are serious about buying a property, any property, connect with a reputable, experienced local Realtor who is familiar with your areas of interest, commit to one, be very loyal to your personal buyers agent, and you will be able to ask all your questions and all the advantages of working with a buyers Agent.
here is why
WORK WITH A REALTOR, YOUR PERSONAL BUYERS AGENT
I am wondering why you ask this question here at Trulia, if you are an interested and determined
buyer, you definitely should connect with a local Realtor, a buyers Agent, ie a Realtor who will be on
your side, protecting your interests, finding the right property, arrange showings, answer all your
questions, help you right a good offer, get you also pre-approved for a loan, and negotiate on your behalf the very best sale price and terms and if you commit to one trusted Realtor, he or she will commit 100 % to you and his or her services if you make an offer on a property listed by a Realtor/Brokerage in the multiple listing service will be FREE to you, as Buyers Agents are usually
paid by the seller's side, out of the sellers proceeds at the closing table...ALL THAT IS REQUIRED FROM YOU TO WORK ONLY WITH ONE REALTOR AND TO BE 100 % LOYAL TO YOUR PERSONAL BUYERS AGENT!
Why would you want to do this on your own, when there are so many details to be taken care of the
right way and so many details need to be paid attention to, inspection appraisals, loan commitment, walk thru etc. etc. in order to bring an offer to a fully executed contract and that to successful closing and home purchase.
Give it a second thought and hopefully you will decide to work with a trusted Realtor, who is experienced in your areas of interest. Please commit to only ONE Realtor!! If you need recommendations get back to me I gladly forward you names..

Contact any Texas licensed inspector & ask. Each have their own criteria & set their own prices so some may or may not. It's important to obtain inspections from those with appropriate licensure by the Texas Real Estate Commission. Hope this helps.... more
The thing you have to think about is are there people unreported? Could someone move in next door the day after you buy...and probably the biggest kicker is that most sex offenders abuse someone they know. Family members...trusted friends....not strangers. Stranger danger gets taught in schools and that is not a bad thing, but that's an unusual situation.
It's always nice to be aware of people in the neighborhood, but they're probably not your biggest threat in most cases.... more
Harbor Oaks and Rockport Coutry club are not gated. The Sanctuary, The Preserve, Royal Oak and Heron's Roost have gates. I may have missed one or two. As for nicest it depends on your definition and what ammenities you are looking for but these are a start for you.
Aransas Bay Real Estate
Texas Association of REALTORS say: NO. As a reminder, landlords have until Jan. 1, 2013, to comply with a state law that went into effect on Sept. 11, 2011, requiring the landlord of a property with a lease signed before Sept. 1, 2011, to install smoke alarms in each bedroom, in each hallway that services multiple bedrooms, and on each level of the dwelling unit.
Per the Texas Property Code, the duty to install smoke alarms may not be waived. If a landlord is not in compliance with the law on smoke alarms, a tenant may seek remedies, such as a judgment for damages related to the violation and court costs.
For two ways to alternatively comply with the requirements relating to smoke alarms, see Property Code, Section 92.2571.... more

If we want to get the best result, we need to calculate the efficiency on cost and dollar value. First find the estimate of the cost, then find out how much dollar value you can gain back. This is what I will suggest to my clients.... more
I suppose there's only one company that could answer that question.
The good news is that according to www.weather.com it's now 78 degrees, 66% humidity with a nice 14 MPH north wind blowing in Rockport right now. You're probably okay without an A/C until tomorrow!

curb appeal should always bring a higher sale price -- one reason why there are reality TV shows like Curb Appeal to prove the point. What the return on investment will be is difficult to put a number on. The "right" buyer will pay the price as long as the price is not the highest in the neighborhood if looking for a quick sale. But I agree with you Alissa -- it does depend.... more
As a client, I would like to get my answer or help right away. So the system can help a lot. But I also understand that a spirited realtor will do better jobs.

Rockport has a plethora of art galleries, boutique stores, and museums. For such a small town we're quite cosmopolitan!. Our bays are great for sailing, fishing (wade, boat & pier), power boating, para-sailing and swimming. We also have a number of very good restaurants offering a wide selection of dining choices from fresh seafood to Tex-Mex (with authenic Sushi, Italian and Vietnamese cuisines thrown in to really open up the palate).... more
