What is the Average Cost of Building a House? Price of a House per Square Foot

The actual costs of building a house can be hard to determine. In general, building a house costs between $80 and $110 per square foot of the finished structure. You must generally double this amount when factoring in the cost of land and other factors. Generally a house’s price is divided evenly between materials, labor, land, and builder profits.
