In my humble opinion only Tim Hensley could answer this best. However, I can tell you that from my quick review of recent transfers it would calculate out to $160/sf. I've seen as high as $250 and as low as $107 for their work. I would highly caution you to utilize that as any gauge for pricing. You need to quantify many things before you can do that.

You should consider whether the lot is included, the fit and finish, as well as overall construction style and or quality. Different finish levels can certainly add cost; arched entry ways, coffered ceilings, kitchen finishings among many other details. Foundation pour, insulation, lighting/electric, plumbing and other structural upgrades should be considered.

I hope this helps, please let me know if I can be of any further assistance. I'm happy to answer any of your questions or give you a second opinion.

Good afternoon Lmrowley,

We see many credit reports with low credit scores (anything less than 620), and often many scores in the 500's. This is BAD credit. If you are one of the folks affected by this terrible economy, you have a low credit score and you have a dream of buying a home, here's some simple advice for you.

It is unlikely you could be approved for mortgage financing with that credit score at this time.

Beware of any mortgage professionals promising you an approval with such a low score. Wait on buying a home. I recommend you take the time to resolve your credit issues.

First, settle any outstanding debt. If you owe money on collection accounts, charge-offs and/or judgments, make payment arrangements and get these accounts paid promptly.

Next, begin rebuilding your credit. If you have current accounts with good payment histories, or even some previous late-payment-blemishes, make sure you continue to pay those accounts on time. If you do not have any existing credit accounts then you'll need to establish several in order to create a viable credit history.

I have found that CONSUMER ACTION is an excellent resource for objective advice on all things credit related. You'll find free and sincere advice on everything from settling collection accounts to rebuilding credit to building credit from scratch on their website.

Beware of anyone offering to "repair" your credit! The Federal Trade Commission issued a stern warning last year that such offers are scams. Find more from the FTC HERE.

The best way to buy a home is to have a decent credit history combined with sufficient Income and Assets for a home purchase.

The best way to have a decent credit history is to settle negative outstanding obligations and pay all your bills on time for at least two years.

Regardless of the quality of the builders work, if you are concerned about the foundation I would have it inspected. Not just a general home inspection, but by by a qualified foundation/structural inspector. Even with a well built home there are things outside the builders control or knowledge and problems could have occured due to the concrete. soil underneath the house, drainage, etc. since the home was built.

I am familiar with your subdivision as I represent a small subdivision right up the street at Sunrise Ridge. The developer there is also experiencing a very difficult time selling these lots. We have reduced them by 60% and still no offers.
Are your market homes currently on all the available websites? Like Trulia and others? I know that my listings are syndicated to more than 75 different websites thru Point2. I live in Landen and have driven through that area often. If they are held open I could go through them to see how they show.
I really don't get on Trulia much but got an email from them and saw your post.
