I am sorry to say that if you want accurate information, you should either find the information yourself, or double check any information a broker gives you. I say this because I own a fully rented duplex in Drexel Hill, with each apartment having 2 bedrooms. And, although it is not for sale, Trulia described it as a a "single family home", containing only 2 bedrooms. That is as inaccurate a description as one can possibly make.

While you are itemizing costs, don't forget to include the cost of the developing the lot, putting in streets and sidewalks, connecting utilities, designing and drawing the plans, surveying the lot, pouring the slab, framing the home, putting on the roof, installing the plumbing and wiring, hanging the drywall, ....

There are a lot of costs in building a home, including the cost of selling it. So, maybe you can find a builder who will let you do some of those tasks, too and save a few bucks. Not.

glad to see you are getting alot of answers to your question, perhaps now you see that options are many and you need to get all the facts before making a move. Do you have any info about whether your husband will be taking another job or not. This is a good time to buy and you would not want to miss any advantages available today. I would be happy to speak with you at any time, just to clarify any questions you may have.
