Outer Banks Construction projects are not complicated ordeals if you are familiar with the process. If you consider building an investment home on a vacant lot, you'll find an extensive understanding of the building process from each Surfside agent.  Surfside is familiar with the local builders / developers, and have acquired a great deal of knowledge in single family and commercial construction.

Costs? It's difficult to answer "how much per square foot?" New construction and developing costs vary on the complexity of the home or project, infrastructure requirements, the amount of site work required, individual town fees/permits, water taps, level of finish one expects, and the type of floor plan design architects / home designers come up with. Single family building costs can be anywhere between $100-200+ per square foot. The only way to know is to design a house plan that works on an available vacant lot (homesite), and get an idea of your desired interior, exterior, and landscape finish.  A surfside agent can put these scenarios together easily, just call 252-599-2300.

If you're considering the building path, I would recommend starting a dialogue with RE/MAX Surfside so we can sort through the basic mechanics with you. We will be able to find you a viable piece of land, and then maximize the value of that lot with a new home. You don't want to under build, and you certainly do not want to overbuild. Knowing you have the right floor / house plans and specifications already in place, provides you with more accurate pricing when it comes to construction projects. 

CONSTRUCTION COSTS - Here is an example of the various construction costs budget spreadsheet items you will see in a typical building contract. Get a detailed breakdown in your building contract so you are aware of where your money is going. Also make sure you have clear specifications so you know the quality of materials that will go into your new construction home.

Check out the specifications sheet and see the different line items you and your builder should know prior to getting hard pricing on a new construction home. If you were to add or subtract a few thousand dollars from each budget line you would realize a wildly changing per square foot price as you divided the total cost by the square footage of a home. Call Surfside today for a casual chat on building and developing.  We're easy to talk to!  252-599-2300.
