How Much Does it Cost to Build a Custom Home?


If you have ever dreamt of having a custom home built just for you and your family, chances are one of the first questions that you have will be about cost. Well, there is no simple answer. Many factors go into determining the cost of a custom home, including your individual choices for finishes. However, many homeowners are surprised to find that custom homes are often more affordable than they think.

While the cost of labor, of course, is one of the most significant expenses, many other factors can go into the overall pricing of your custom home. This can vary by builder and the region you are in. The cost of land is another big factor in the overall cost of your custom home.

Your lot is a crucial factor in your home’s functionality and cost (and don’t forget it’s all about location, location, location). If you are looking for a lot in a highly desirable area, you might need to plan on spending more to secure a lot. If you are looking to build a country getaway in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area, you may be able to get more bang for your buck while getting much more space to build on. 

There are some benefits to building custom as well, as you don’t have to worry about skyrocketing prices based on what the market is doing around you. There are, however, some other factors you will want to consider when creating your budget. This can include architects, engineers, and land surveyors – or you can simply let our in-house team come up with the best solution for you.

If all of this sounds like a lot of math, there is no need to worry. Before you ever start building a custom home, you will have all of these numbers out in front of you. When you work with a custom builder, they should provide you with a detailed outline of what everything costs in your contract, so you not only know what your final number is, but what every piece of your custom design will cost.
