There is a lot of incontinuity in the neighborhoods of Lincoln, NE. Depeding on which neighborhood you are looking in, you will find homes that range from $200k-$300k, surrounded by townhomes and an aparment complex. To find the avg price per sqft of what you are looking from is going to require that you find which area of Lincoln you wish to live. Then you will be able to find a more valid price per sqft, as oposed to trying to get an overall avg.
Having said that, in a nice neighborhood with good continuity I would say you will find the avg price per sqft in a range of $110-$150 per sqft.
