As you can see from the other answers, this is really a hard question to answer because it depends on so many factors. Talk to an experienced local real estate agent & builder to get a better sense of what you are looking at once you give them the detail of what you are looking for.

Good luck to you in any case

Price per square foot is a dangerous number to focus on. A small one level home may cost more on this basis than a multilevel luxury home. One of us can send you new construction listings to give you some basis of comparisons. Just let us know a bit more what you hope to find either style, quality and area or price range and a local Broker can send you several new or nearly new homes to consider.

That's like asking what shade of blue is the sky? The cost per-square-foot depends on a number of factors including location, cost of materials, cost of labor, and more. Are you talking about Iowa or Hawaii? Is the 'construction' new from the ground-up, or a remodel project in an existing home? Is the 'construction' a basement rec room, a new garage, or a brand new house? Depending upon the location and the type of project, the price of new construction will vary widely from $75 per-square-foot to more than $400 per-square-foot.
