In Chicago, $30k to tear down, $450-500k to build, for a house.

It all depends on what it is your using in the rebuild. Talk to some general contractors.

I am not a contractor however I have dealt with them in the past.

It will depend on the type of house you want, brick/mortar vs frame, as an example, finishes, high end, mid-range, etc...1 story, 2, 3, etc....garage all these are factors.

Visit either of these websites, both contractors are very good, reasonable and reliable: or, please let them know I referred you and you may get a better deal.

Good luck!

Hello Fletchrm,

Do you want a KIA or a Lexus? I will gladly give you tons of info if you want to give me a call. But about $7000 for the knock and about $135 per sf hard cost for build.

Many thanks and be well.
