Are you thinking of building a home in the Auburn – Opelika area? There’s something exciting about building your own house—it’s no wonder that more than 1,000,000 new residences are projected to go up this year. Still, if this thought has crossed your mind, you have also probably wondered: How much does it cost to build a house, anyway?
According to data from the National Association of Home Builders, the median price of constructing a single-family home in 2015 was $289,415, or $103 per square foot. And according to the U.S. Census, the median size of a newly built single-family house in 2015 was 2,467 square feet. That price can vary widely based on where you live, though.
