The Cost of Building a Custom Home in Greely
When it comes to building your dream home in Greely, there are several factors that will influence your overall costs. To provide an accurate estimate, we need to discuss whether you’ve purchased a lot or are still looking, total square footage of the home and a number of other decisions regarding design, finishes and outdoor spaces.
When building a home, the lot will make up a big part of the overall cost. Sometimes, our clients have already purchased a lot and have a separate budget for building the house. Other times, we work with clients that have an all-in budget for both the lot and home.
Apart from the price to purchase the lot, it’s also worth mentioning there are other lot factors to consider that could significantly affect the overall price:
- If it’s an infill property (there’s an existing structure on the property), costs for demolition will need to be included.
- Densely wooded lots might need to be cleared prior to building and you might be required to replant them once the project has finished.
- Depending on the lot, you might need to apply for a bylaw variance to build your dream home, which can add administrative costs.
Building a Custom Home on Your Own Land
When deciding to build their dream home, Ottawa homeowners often use the land that developers have already claimed for the project. Their budget will be spread across the cost of the land as well as the cost of building the home and materials. However, if you already own a plot of land, or perhaps you have your eye on a plot of land in the perfect location for your family, you may want to have builders create your dream home from the ground up on an empty lot that you’ve chosen.
This is a great idea as it allows future homeowners to have even more control over their dream home and their dream property. However, if you’ve never had a home built on an empty lot, it can be intimidating. This is why the experts at Omega have created a list of features and budgetary components to consider when building a custom home on your own land.
