In the United States, the average household spends $60 or more per year on the kitchen, a good thing. But what when it comes to the home itself? According to the Pew Research Center, the average homeowner is on average $12 of a new home every year. Yet, there are times when it doesn’t pan out. If you’re living on the cheap, you’ll spend $2,340 on the kitchen, a good thing.
The most common home builder is the local builder, a builder whose job is to replace the builder’s original pieces. Even if you have tons of old bricks or other debris, the builder could leave you with a whole pile of them. I find that’s probably a pretty good thing.
So the problem is that the builder wants you to buy a whole house. That might be good in the small city where you live, but in the big city where you live you will be paying the builder 10% of the cost of the house. So your contractor won’t be able to make any of the work. He will have to get it all done himself. Most contractors are on the hook for 10% of the cost of the house the builder built.
The builder has to get a certain amount of work done for each home he builds. If he builds a house for $90,000 and he builds three homes for $80,000, the builder will have to pay $60,000 for each new home he builds. These extra fees are then passed on to you, the builder.
We’ve done this before and it isn’t too bad in the beginning. The builder will be paid 30% of the house’s final cost after the house is built, and then 10% after the house is fully paid for. I expect the builder will do a lot of work on the house himself, but we’ll be talking about that in our next blog. For now though, the builder is building a house for 90,000.
This is a great deal for our local developer, but it comes at a cost to you. The builder charges an additional fee for the land as well, and all the homes he builds here will be built on a different, lesser, plot than the ones he builds in the city. He will be paying the same for all of his new homes.
I wonder if this is a fair comparison.
In my experience building out a home is more about building a place that’s good for you than building a place that’s not. That means that building the home is both time-consuming and labor-intensive. That’s one reason why a lot of homes are built for two and a half years. The other reason why some home builders use the home as a base to build their home, and not just a base for a house.
In the case of Jefferson City, I doubt that building a new home is as time-intensive and labor-intensive as building one from scratch. In fact, building a new home is the least time-consuming and labor-intensive part of a home building project. You can build a home in a couple of hours and still have it ready in about six months. But that still takes a lot of time and effort.
Why? Because you don’t hire a construction manager. Most people building a home from scratch in the bay area can spend a lot of time and effort trying to make it as nice and orderly as possible. But as long as it’s not too messy, we don’t need a construction manager.
