What Selection Mistakes Do Most People Make _ Most people start the process by a best guess as to what size home they should build. They either pick a size range based on a floor plan they found and liked while randomly searching online or they tour a home they like and assume that it is the size that will be right for their needs. There are frustrating problems associated with both of these methods. Another common problem is to decide on a certain style of home or number of floors because of a beautiful home you have seen or toured somewhere else without exploring the related other options. So what is the best way to start this process, you ask?
We are going to assume here that you have already looked into your financing options and have a good idea of the amount of your budget you can apply towards the actual building cost of your new home. Begin with this amount and deduct 10% right off the top. You will thank me for this advice in the end. Everyone goes over budget during construction, even the financial nerds can't control every little detail that comes along. Take this net building budget and divide this dollar amount by the average square foot cost to build you got from the realtor or builder. Since I hope they gave you a low and high range this will give you two new numbers. These numbers are the low to high total square footage house floor plans sizes you should be searching for. If you choose to look at multi_level house floor plans then you will be comfortable on the upper level of this number since your cost per foot will be lower.
