It would depend on many upgrades the builder is including in the base price and the options you might still need to pay to add, i.e. air conditioning, lot premium, ceiling fan prewires and fans, upgraded appliances, granite counters, wood floors vs. carpet etc...it can all add up quickly- most builders have some of the upgrades on a price cheet.

You also can consider the age and the wear of the model.

It would be the base price plus all the extras added on by the builder. This would include a lot premium, structural upgrades including the type of basement, wiring,extra outlets, etc. Also any upgrades to the interior such as flooring, carpeting, lighting fixtures, hardware, AC, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, counter tops, tile surrounds etc. It can get very expensive, it all depends on what was included in the base price. The models you walk through, are usually upgraded to the max! You should never go into a model home community without your Realtor. The person in the sales office is representing the builder, not you, and they are not required to be licensed in the state of CO.
It does not cost you anything to use a Realtor to represent you in your purchase or a new home or one that is being sold by an owner. A Realtor ( your buyer's agent) will provide you with advice and help you through the process. The builder pays the commission to the Realtor usually based on the base price of the home. The seller of a home pays both the listing broker and the selling broker. Do consider a Realtor to represent you in your efforts to find a home. It can be an overwhelming process and you don't want to over pay for any house!

It really depends on the builder. And, what's included in the 300,000 price point. Does that include lot premiums, hardwood, granite, basement finishes, etc. I do hope you have someone to represent you to fight for the most bang for your buck.

That would really depend on the buyer. The builder will offer all kinds of options everything from lights to a finished basement. I would think you could get a nicely done home for $25000-$30000 in addition to the base price.

Who knows! It could be lots more or about the same depending on what features it has and how many upgrades they have in it.
