As CEO of Grenadier Homes, I have always been highly sensitive to cost per square foot. It is just a numeric statistic. Reminds me of the famous line, that there are lies, damned lies and statistics.
The actual computation is Cost over Size. This highly hypothetical example ($000’s) shows how the price per square foot moves from $200 on the 1 story townhome to $147 and $118 as the home is doubled and tripled in size by adding a second level with extra rooms. The First Level costs way more to build than the Second Level because there is one garage, one structure, one kitchen and one master bed/bath.
So, it is clearly the case that the larger the home, the less costly it is per square foot. But, is this necessarily an indication of value?
What could be some visible factors not shown in square footage that affect value?
What are some items that are harder to determine but affect value and livability?
