Building lots in Watersound - building costs?

Asked by Lou, Boston, MA Tue Mar 3, 2009

While researching property in Watersound, initially homes but now building lots, I've come across what appearto be some lovely lots, especially in the bridges section. Can anyone provide a sense of what building costs are per square foot in the area?

I own Chambers Street Builders, Inc. I have built about 100 buildings in the area and know precisely how much it costs to build homes here. If you look at our site you will find pricing models. Our model #7 was just built and sold in WaterSound Beach.

Lou, There's a lot of factors that go into the square footage cost of building. At this time, in our opinion, somewhere between 250-300 per square foot would be a pretty realistic price for most homes in Watersound. However, we do know of some builders who claim they can do it for less. We've never worked with them personally but here is their website:

For fun, we have compiled a report of lots in Watersound. This report includes Active, Contingent, Pending & Sold lots since June 2008.…

And so you can do a comparison of homes to lots, here is the same report but with homes rather than lots:…

Watersound is our favorite development along the 30A! I am also a local artist and find much inspiration for my paintings within the property. To be such a large development, they did a fantastic job of finding harmony with the natural beauty of the land. With 256 acres and a mile of beach front, you really can't compare this development to any others on the 30A.

Let us know if you need any additional help and we will do our best to get you clear and concise answers.
