Best to consult with a local realtor. Sam has given you good suggestions.

I used to live in Northern California and decided to sell my home and relocate to Dallas Fort Worth. It's a lot more affordable here with plenty of exemplary/good schools. You can get a really nice home for about 1/2 the cost of the home in the area you are currently interested in and salary is probably about 10% less than California. In other words, the cost of living here is a lot lower and quality of living a lot higher. Oh and there are many major employers moving to Dallas Fort Worth. ... more

Both are very difficult to get. Way too many people fight all over it. What does cramped Cu neighborhood and over crowded school buy you vs other is something you need to decide.

You need a GOOD real estate agent to reduce or minimize your risk. If you're buying, hire an Exclusive Buyer's Agent, not a regular buyer's agent. Visit for a referral.

My answer would be it depends. The cost to build a home varies widely by location. Building a home in warmer climates is very different , and much less costly, than building in northern states, where foundations must be able to withstand freezing, etc. Different areas have different local codes and regulations. And of course build costs change over time.

I would first suggest that you find a good Realtor and have them run a free market analysis for you on the area you will be building in. Then you will have a good idea of what the going prices are so you do not over build for that area.
