  • It really all comes down to location, location, location! I would have to guess for the HOUSE only...likely in the $250,000 range. However, MORE importantly is WHERE would you be building this house (city, country, rural area), how much LAND would it be situated on (sewer versus septic will increase/decrease the cost of the home dramatically!), and what kind of builder UPGRADES would you be wanting?

    Houses around 2000 square feet can range from the $150,000 range in rural/undeveloped areas with well and septic) to over a $1,000,000 for a more city/suburban area connected to city utilities.
