Hello Wayne_lane, it will vary depending on what scale and upgrades you are intending. Did you have some damage that is covered by insurance and if so they will do the calculations.

If you want to remodel your home you may consider the 203k loan program which you would have a cost coordinator to assist you.

There are several considerations on where or IF to buy a home after selling one. It depends on if you wish to stay in the area, and if yes, for how long.

All the best,

I would suggest that you ask another insurance company about their coverage. If they are all the same across the board, that they won't pay for architect etc, then you know that's what you get. As far as the cost for the service of an architect and other experts then I would suggest that you pick up the phone and ask how much their fees are. ... more

Treat it as if they are renting just like any other tenant. Make sure they qualify to pay the rent and that they can financially handle the payments and are showing that they are trying to save money to move out for the long term goal. If they are planning to stay longer check if the job they are working is a long term sustainable job that they have worked for quite some time. This shows they has a nice stable income and that there most likely wont be changes any time soon. If you want more info on this topic check out the following article.

Understanding Contractual & Warranty Rights. The sales process gives the buyer an understanding of what they will get for their money. New construction is an expensive consumer purchase. Builders know what consumers are looking to hear.

To determine that you would need to know what it is you are building and with which materials. A house with 3 bathrooms costs more to build than the same house with one bathroom. There are free calculators on line for that.
But even then the difference between the cost of one contractor to the next can be substantial.

Hello, Ginny!
I looked up your home, and the last two model matches sold just weeks ago for $805k and $865k. The difference in price was due to the condition of the home. The $865k was completely remodeled. I ran some neighborhood comps as well, and prices in your area are averaging around $792k.

Please contact me directly if I can be of any assistance to you!
