Cost to Build a House by State
Summary: The cost to build a new house will vary from state to state mainly due to the cost of local home building contractors and subcontractors, local building permits, local impact fees, and land development costs. The cost of land is excluded when calculating the cost to build a house.
The cost to build a new home in the states listed below can be recalculated yourself by using this construction estimating software.
You will see how the estimated cost of construction changes considerably by changing the home design and/or the quality of building materials. You can see this happen by using several different Quality Class selections on the calculator for the same house & zip code. Click on "Show Quality Classes" for suggested characteristics of each quality class.
Using the software is easy, fun to do and a real eye opener.
The cost of the land (home building site) is NOT included in any of the construction cost estimates, nor is the cost of building a new home on steep, rocky, or otherwise difficult building sites.
You should keep in mind that the total cost to build any new house can vary considerably and that the cost to build estimates found on byoh.com are approximate.
Until you actually start getting your own actual construction bids and estimates and start entering them into your own spreadsheet (see my spreadsheet page for FREE spreadsheets) can you get more accurate estimates.
