NO, in today's market you cannot build for the cost of purchasing. Most home sell for $50-$75 Sq. Ft.! Building will likely cost $150 Sq. Ft. (or maore) particularly if you are doing a one of a kind, semi custom or custom home. Remember the cost per foot is not just for the frame construction, it includes the flooring, the cabinets, the counter tops, the bath fixtures and appliances. The nicer you want the house to be th higher the $ per ft.

Your agent should be just the person to answer that question. She or he probably has a list of good contractors who can give you an estimate and suggestions. You might try YELP or Angie's List if you want to do your search on your own.... more
I don't meant to sound disrespectful, but it totally depends on the specific lot and quality of the home. You literally have a range of $200k to $2 million! If you want a list of new construction homes in the area, let me know and I'll be happy to forward it to you.

I would use $200 pr sq ft as an average, however, this ultimately depends on the finishes, appliances and quality of products used. Including a garage, landscaping, etc. can increase the cost significantly. I just build my own home, on Cape Cod, not long ago and would be happy to share my story and offer any guidance if you would like to further discuss.

Do you have an agent representing you? Did you seek out a buyer's agent to look out for your interests in this most important transaction?
Is the bathroom specifically in the contract? I am guessing (based on the hundreds of builder's contracts that I've written) that you will have a difficult time backing out of the contract. But you should have a solid ground to get the bathroom you expected.
Give me a call about this and I will go over several options you have to get the seller to behave or to back out legally.
There are so many great builders in the San Antonio and surrounding areas. With that, every builder will have different pricing. There is also an opportuinty to purchase with a builder that offers acreage with the purchase if that is what you are looking for. I can send you specific information on the builders in the area and what they offer if you like.
It depends on who the builder is. I have 10 years of new home sales experience! I have worked for some of the largest builders in the city such as M/I Homes, Dominion, and a few custom home builders. As a buyer I can assist you for FREE with your new home purchase and help you negotiate the berst deal and make sure you are protect throughtout the process!... more
You can buy it for cash... this doesn't require credit...
You can also get in touch with a lender and determine what you need to do to increase your credit and purchasing power; figure out what you need to do to purchase a home in 1 year... market's not going anywhere anytime soon...
There are too many variables in this to even give you a ballpark:
You might be able to do it for $250/sqft
or it could be $450/sqft
That's a lot of ground to cover.
You need to contact Contractors and get some estimates;
I gather that you already have had an Architect do a set of plans so that you aren't drawing plans in the air?

The most common objections to mobile homes that I hear from clients, are that they depreciate like cars, you do not own the land in the mobile home park, you must rent your space, they are difficult and expensive to finance, the space rent is often very high, they are not as well built as "stick built:" single family homes... more
I recommend that you get bids from at least 3 licensed contractors. The amount of money that it will cost depends on what you want in the room addition.
Recently, one of my clients asked for bids for a 400 square foot room addition for his home. The bids that he received were in the range of $35,000 to $45,000.
Because the room addition that you are asking about is 100 square feet larger than the room addition that my client was looking for, I expect that your bids will be a bit more than that. Also, in the case of my client, the roof tie in, heating and cooling system, and the type of foundation desired were significant factors in the amount of the bids. I expect those will be significant factors in the case of your room addition as well. .
