|A: Generally speaking, we do not have
a fixed price per square foot cost when it comes to building custom
homes by GL Green. Because each GL Green home is custom designed
and built, there are a number of factors that can come into play.
Some of these factors are as follows:
Amenities: Since each home is a custom home, all of the
amenities that go in to the home will usually vary in terms of
personal preferences and selections. Examples of specific selections
that can increase or decrease the price per square foot figure
include selections of granite ($60/pf, $75/sf, etc), flooring (travertine,
porcelain, or wood), window and door packages, appliances, and
various special features (i.e. wood timber features, brick and
iron accents, unique interior wall finish). | Question?
Lot improvement Costs: Potential lot improvement costs
can also come into play and increase the overall cost per square
foot of a home. Such costs may include dirt work expenses, rock
wall expenses, and landscaping expenses. So, if you are building
on a finished lot, your lot improvement expenses will be minimal.
If the lot is relatively large and involves dirt work because of
the topography or if it is located in the valley, then your lot
improvement expenses could increase the overall costs to construct
the home. | Question?
Construction Financing Costs: Included in our price per
square foot figures also generally include the cost obtaining the
construction loan and construction interest during construction. Depending
upon how the financing of the home is structured, there may be
some additional costs associated with construction financing that
would add to the overall price (ultimately price per square foot)
of the home. If on the other hand you required no financing and
used cash to construct the home, that would translate into a lower
cost per square foot. | Question?
Transaction Costs: Any transaction costs, such as closing
costs and Realtor commissions, are also included in the overall
price of the home. So, if you chose to use a licensed real estate
broker not on staff with GL Green, that would increase the cost
of the home by an additional 2.5% and would therefore increase
the cost per square foot figure. Again, these are a few of the
primary factors that can have an effect on the price per square
foot figure. | Question?
