My experience in construction has lent me to believe that a good rule of thumb is $80/sqft. in most suburban neighborhoods. Once you get into the inner city Houston, and nearby neighborhoods that number can quickly jump up to $175/sqft. Land cost and comparable area properties will certainly assist you in determining your final budget.

It depends on several things....mostly size and finishings. I've seen homes built (excluding the lot) for $80/ft and I'm working with a friend of mine that is building in Memorial for $250/ft. The average for a very nice home runs between $100 and $120/ft. The location and cost of the lot are a huge variable. Lots range from $16,500 in the suburban market to over $1,000,000 in Memorial and closer in.

Best of luck to you!

$100/SF if you use a builder/general contractor to manage the construction.

It can very greatly depending on quality of home your looking for. Many other agents have said $100 a sqft, but the neighborhood your in could have a big influence on the cost as well.

Some less upscale communities might allow the home to be build for far less than $100 a sqft. Neighborbhoods that typically have nicer features in their homes such as higher ceilings, upscale floorings like hardwoods and upgraded kitchens can push that dollar amount to $100 or higher.

Speak with some remodeling companies and your insurance agent to see what they say and this should give you a ballpark figure. Good luck with the rebuild!

Less than 100 dollars should be fair.Call the builder that you will use just to make sure.Custom builders charge more.Do your home-work before you start building.

Average is about $100/sqft. But if you want any custom work it will go up from there.
