Most developments will take a refundable deposit on the lot you have chosen, with a window of time set in place to find a builder and plan that works for you. It is comforting to know that your deposit will be given back if you decide not to build. Also, the lot is yours and there is no need to worry about someone else’s interest while you are going through the planning phase.
This question comes up often and is probably the most difficult to answer without knowing your plan and defining the spec. This can be a very miss-leading number in many cases and one that we need information to determine. Price per square foot is a variable which is determined by many factors, such as:
- Total square feet finished (Basement finishing lowers sq. ft. price)
- Size of footprint
- Level of finishing (will drive price up or down)
- Type of home (walk-up, 2-storey, rancher, etc.)

Depending on the size of the home, the average time is 7 months from the day you begin digging to the key hand over. Obviously, this time frame can be less than 7 or more but it’s a good starting point.
