We understand during these trying times that you may be interested in pricing out a Custom Home. We would love to be able to help everyone that is interested but the reality is that we just cannot do this fast enough. So, we have tried to provide some questions and answers below to help determine if you are a serious consumer and may want to proceed to speak with Spartan Homes about your new custom home. We know this is one of the biggest purchases you will make and have tried to answer the questions below as diligently as possible.
There are many things that go into pricing a custom home such as:
Size of home – home many SF of living and no living areas are there? Some builders use all the SF of anything to do with the house to give a low SF number. We use sf of finished living areas finished in our Sf calculations.
Level of finishes – What levels of finish do you expect? – Luxury level, custom level, semi-custom level, track built, mobile home. We start off at what is considered the Custom level on our standard Features list. Over the years we have priced in features and products that most customers want in their homes to start with.
What is included in your turnkey pricing? Everything from clearing, excavation, well, drain field, appliances, etc is included. Only utility hook-up pricing is not included and is priced out separately by the utility companies.
What do I as the owner have to do?
Sign a contract, pick out colors and enjoy the process.
Complexity/ type of home – is this a simple ranch with a simple roof design, or is it a complex roof system? Is it a rectangular house or a house with several bump-outs or special designs, Is this a design that the builder has built before, or is this the first time on this complex build? All these items factor largely into pricing.
Systems – what level of HVAC, water heater, circulation pumps, well pumps etc… We have done a lot of research over the years to provide you with Quality products and vendors that have great reputations and quality.
Is this a Green Home?
What does that mean, does it really save me utility costs? Yes, each new home built by Spartan is registered to be a Bronze-level National Green Building Standard home. You can spend hours or days looking at the website but it basically boils down to each home we build is about twice as energy efficient as a code-built home that saves you money on each utility bill over the lifetime of the home. In addition the year you build you are able to get the tax credit for building a green home.

How much does a custom home cost per SF??

This is honestly the one question that is the hardest because there are so many ways someone can answer. What we do is prefer to price the house out for you, but as a guideline, over the years we have found that a median build price is about 185 an SF. YES OF COURSE it can be less, it can also be more. it really does take into account all the above items plus so much more.
How much is a remodel an SF? Unfortunately, this is an even more loaded question as there is an existing structure, engineering, and demolition to be considered on top of the normal amount of items. For estimating purposes only our median large remodel has been around 250 dollars an SF. These are historical pricing over years and many projects so please keep this in mind.
Please understand that it may take us a couple of days to respond to you after you fill out the form, thank you!
