Dear Antonio,
I have been living and working in Hillsborough area for over 20 years and also have built over 45 homes. Yes this is a struggling market, however we are seeing light at the end of the tunnel and things are not as gloomy as some believe. As an agent and owner builder, my own net costs in Hillsborough exceed 385 to 450 a square foot to build. I would question the quality of construction for anyone who would provide a proposal of 300 per foot. There is a rigid design review process in Hillsborough, quality of construction and finishes is imperative for your project to be accepted by this board. If you do not follow the accepted design, to an include materials provided to the board, you will not receive a certificate of occupancy on your home.
In my many years of residential real estate, I have accumulated a wonderful list of contractors who can help you build your dream home. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Good Luck and Happy Holidays!
